What if we can feel our way through illusion with the integrity of the heart? Novel universes might be waiting there.

What does the heart see that the mind cannot?
          The aisle to eternity

The Eyes and Ears of the Heart

Heart cognition … allows us to deeply experience the living soulfulness of the world, constantly reweaving us back into the fabric of life.

— Stephen Harrod Buhner*

 

We forget that the heart is also an organ of perception.

The mind loves to divide and categorize, to classify, stratify and judge, but the heart  is about unification. A heart-centered stance is central to the cosmology of cultures who live in communion with nature, and is integral to the gifts of shamanism, for example.*  The heart can open the way for us to recognize ourselves in the world around us. The space of the heart is the space of one, where all is connected, all is communicating, all is present.

 

Is there a tear in the fabric of duality?
                   The ears of a deer full with windsong
