World Heart Day

Oneness, a true and wonderful message for World Heart Day. The heart is recognised in Traditional Chinese Medicine as the Emperor or Empress of the body, the whole health of the body is dependent on the heart. Although transplantation of organs is a wonder of modern medicine, the body is One, an amazing conglomeration of cells, making up our different organs and systems, all ruled peaceably by the heart. Consciousness is not only in the brain, but in the mind, which is in every cell of the body. The heart is the seat of consciousness.

Many ancient traditions believed the heart was the centre of intelligence and personality, much more than just a muscular pump that moves blood around the body.  According to the bible “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he” (Proverbs 23:7), but can we think in our hearts?

Recently science discovered neurones in the heart, a heart based nervous system that communicates with the brain to maintain harmony in the body. The heart also communicates hormonally and through its electrical rhythm, entraining other body systems to itself. Your heart is intelligent! Native cultures have long known that thinking with your heart is powerful stuff!

Heart knowing is deep, for according to yoga teachings God dwells in the heart. It is only in our hearts that we can discover our true nature, the deep peace, love and compassion of which we are wrought. Indeed in the Little Prince Antoine St Exupery writes “It is only with the heart that we can see clearly. For what is essential, is hidden from the eyes.”

So take care of your heart, listen quietly to your heart, respond to your heart wisdom! Happy Heart Day!

One thought on “World Heart Day

  1. I’ve loved the Little Prince since the 70s. St. Exupery was a personal friend of Anne Morrow Lindbergh, and each admired each other’s writings. Being and understanding Oneness, if at all possible, is my Quest. It has to be good for my heart. I am sharing this on FB. Thank you.
