The Heart & Heart Chakra, Part 4

And so we will return to the heart.

Consider that some of those who profess to “move from the heart” may speak a different language than you speak, in that internally they are using reference points and connotations that are quite different from yours. Some may assume the movement of awareness [throughout many points, inside and outside the body, as discussed earlier] when speaking of “moving from the heart,” and only really be urging others to become acquainted with the heart. Their verbalization, in other words, may be inaccurate while their understanding is accurate.

We say again that those who truly understand do not really move from the heart – a sloppy verbalization of a precise idea; they move from the acknowledgment of their innate wholeness. If they want to see that as seated completely or mainly in the heart, that is their choice. If we are speaking in metaphor and model, it works. If we are speaking from Truth, it is accurate but not true, for as we stated, one may choose any part of the body from which to move, and one will find the same innate creativity, the essence, the All in the single point – Love. For you are it.

So now let us move to a discussion of the chakra …

First we would like to congratulate the human race on the model of chakras, which has been and continues to be a useful model of energy flows. Then we would like to remind you that it is only a model, useful for understanding something complex and multi-dimensional for which the human language has no particular vocabulary. The energies are in fact much more complex than is presented in the chakra model, as some masters know, of course. The model as popularly familiar and is fairly and superficially workable for the moment, so we will use it. If we at some point step beyond it, keep these words in mind.

Consider that the chakras have been assigned tasks by the humans that participate in this model. The heart chakra’s energy has come to be weighted toward love through intention – through the combined and repeated intention of many humans believing in that particular weight or specialty. Heart, the heart chakra, has taken on the personality – through the power of thought. We speak of it in this way to shake up some people’s ideas; this is not fully true, just one perspective that is accurate.

Another way to understand this point is to understand that affinity, “love,” is the part of the heart’s energy that is most often focused upon by human consciousness, the other aspects of its beingness more or less ignored. So it comes to appear to the human that the heart’s specialty is affinity and love, or the heart actually does accept and respond to this attention by growing in that particular area.

Relatedly, yet another way to understand this point is to acknowledge that the heart’s specialty is indeed affinity, love. For as an individual being, Heart, who is all hearts, has a deep understanding of and adeptness with that portion of the human experience, for the attention directed toward it has developed it in this direction. Not against its will, but in conjunction and cooperation with All. And not out of balance with the remainder of its awareness, but as a specialty. Is this understood?

These are all accurate, none describing the whole truth. Just a reminder as we move forward with this discussion – to keep in mind that affinity or love is not all the heart is capable of, for the heart is All and so carries the potential and capacity and beingness of All. Love may be understood as a specialty – or that is how we are looking at it for this discussion. Since the heart chakra moves from the heart, so it carries the heart-beingness energy, both specialized and infinite.

We will leave this point for contemplation as you see fit.

So … we will say now that the heart chakra is often described as being about, the seat of, love for others. This we would encourage people to re-examine, for as you know, the energy of the fourth chakra is not about love for others but love and affinity for the self.

From the perspective of All as One, of course, they are the same thing. But you are in physical bodies and physical awarenesses. You are not moving at all times from the Whole Self awareness, so in this instance we will not address you or this subject from that perspective. We will stick to the current collective consciousness perspective for the purposes of clarity (and making our point) in this discussion …

In the case of the heart chakra being about others or self, self must come first, you see, for only by accepting the self as perfect is the being able to recognize the perfection of others in their true and pure form – to share the beingness of co-passion, co-respect. It cannot move the other way, from other to self, for other implies other-ness and will not naturally lead to understanding that you are other. The mechanical reasons for this are not important for this discussion, so we will not enter further. Suffice it to say that the easiest, most efficient, and most accurate way for the human to move from the heart/love (to become or be aware of their beingness) is to recognize and enter their affinity for themselves.

We will not say that anyone is wrong for understanding the fourth chakra as being about love for others… we are saying that if one describes the fourth chakra as being primarily about affinity for one’s self, that would be more accurate and ultimately more useful.

That is all we have to say for now on this subject.

The Heart & Heart Chakra, Part 3

Love is not a feeling, as you have discovered, or remembered and experienced. It is a state of being, and it is a perpetual creative and kinetic state, for all of existence exists within it, creates it, is it, participates in it, and is created by it. Love is. You cannot, as a consciousness, not participate in it, for if you were to step out of it, you step out of any existence – physical or non-physical. It is impossible, so not worth contemplating.

In becoming or being aware of this state of being that you are, you may experience emotions, yet the beingness is not the emotion. We would encourage one not to mistake an emotion for a beingness. Emotions are not necessarily indicators of a truth, nor are they the thing. They are indicators of, reactions to, a perspective. They are not the Love.

We would like to expand upon this.

The word “love” in English most often refers to an emotion, which you correctly cringe at, instinctively and correctly understanding that True Love (Unconditional love, many say) is not an emotion. You personally would be more comfortable referring to Love (capitalized) as a living being, and in this you would be more accurate if still not completely correct. You would be more comfortable referring to love as the core being-ness of being, which would also be a more accurate description, if not yet complete. In your lexicon love might be more accurately referred to as “limitless creativity,” “inherent balance,” “harmony.” You cannot find the proper word with the proper connotations and vibrations, for as you know the proper word does not exist in your language. “Love” as a word has lost its meaning in the English language (in this context of which we speak), at its essence, just as the word “God” has been so defined as to have lost the limitlessness of the mysterious, eternal, creative and essentially unknowable-ness / total knowing-ness of that to which it refers.

The word is only marginally important. We cannot give you a new word, nor would you want us to do so. It would not make your experience or your state of being any more comprehensible to another without the word’s widespread dissemination and use. Therefore, we will continue to use the word “love” with all its inadequacies. As long as you will remember that love is not an emotion but a state of being, we can continue our discussion of the heart and its chakra.

The Heart & Heart Chakra: Part 1

What follows is a conversation about this subject that I had with my gang of friends who currently occupy the non-physical levels … (who might just be me, or aspects of me, who knows. I’m just not sure yet.)

My request: Talk to me about the heart, and the heart chakra.

We know where you would prefer start, but let us begin in another position and work our way to it. We would like first for you to see from one perspective, then another, with the implication that there are yet other viewpoints, and all of them complete and valid.

The heart, as a physical (ahem*) entity, could be viewed as a manifestation of the Whole Heart. In other words, all are one heart, and that one is a consciousness in and of itself, as well as being many (all) hearts. This is not quite Truth but is accurate. Neither is it quite the understanding of those who speak of “one heart” but they are close enough to work with this.

From this perspective, it matters not whether you “open your heart” for that is a nonsensical instruction. Your heart cannot be anything other than what it essentially is, which is an individual heart, and also a participant in the One Heart, which is of All That Is. The heart is always “open,” for it can be nothing but by its nature. What people mean by this is not to open the heart, but to open the conscious mind to the awareness of the heart.

And so, through “awareness ” … we meet the mind. The current cultural picture, whether individuals realize it or not, is that the mind resides naturally (sits most naturally, works most naturally) in or through the brain, or in the head. This is an erroneous assumption. As you know from experience, the mind can be anywhere – anywhere within the body, anywhere within the world, anywhere outside of the world, for it is Whole, it is consciousness, limitless. It is at home anywhere, for it is everywhere.
