“But feelings can’t be ignored, no matter how unjust or ungrateful they seem.” — Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl
Living from the field of the heart gives us direct access to our innate potential and also provides direct access to our emotional intelligence. Heart-centered awareness does not override emotions. Heart-centered awareness includes emotions and enables us to live fully in integrity as our True Authentic Self.
Consider that some of what you may be feeling at times isn’t even you but comprises the feelings of other people you know. In addition, some of what you may often feel are the emotional/thought fields of the collective WE. None of these emotions are who we are, or who you are. Rather, these emotions are transient experiences we may be having or that may be having us. Indeed, these emotions can send confusing signals, obscuring us from the truth of our core essence as love, often clouding our perceptions and experiences of self, others, and all that we relate to in our lives.
To be seen (and to see ourselves) exactly as we are, Perfectly Imperfect; limitless beings experiencing apparent limitation, is what enables all of us to realize we are not broken. We are wholly and fully already com- plete.
To be seen as we are, by self, or through the lens of another, lets light in and lets light out.
Collapse of the wave function is a common quantum physics term that stems from the famous double-slit experiment popularized by physicist Richard Feynman. The double-slit experiment demonstrates that matter and energy can display characteristics of both waves and particles.
Reality is virtually a symbolic representation of patterns of information. Notice the patterns and come explore the connections with the interlocking grids of consciousness that permeate the all that is.
We are still here and now. Don’t worry. This article isn’t about literally going back to the future in a Lamborghini or forward to the past like a Star Trek episode. Practically speaking, the application of Time Travel is an effective strategy for expanding our resonance with limitless potential to manifest as experience.
Relating is a dynamic, ever-evolving essential of relationships. Relating describes you in relation to. Relating is you in relation to universal consciousness and its infinite potential. Relating is you in relation to—everything! As an extension of universal consciousness, that which you create is connected to the all and is experienced wholly in relation to you! Everything is in relationship. Everything is you in-relation, too.
What is universal consciousness? Well, before we attempt to define it, we must acknowledge that any description of universal consciousness is merely a description of it, and is not actually it. As it is with defining a banana, we understand that the description is not an actual banana. The description is only a signpost pointing to the banana.
The field of the heart provides us with direct access to our inner voice, our inner wisdom, and our inner chamber of limitless potential. The field of the heart creates a coherent connection with universal consciousness. There are no limitations when accessing the field of the heart, and similarly, there are no limitations to the infinite methods or strategies for noticing, listening, and speaking from the field of the heart.
Often our individual and collective experiences are a result of fields with which we are knowingly or unknowingly in resonance through the hologram of consciousness. Change a field resonance in the hologram, and everything can change.
Choose to radiate the light and joy that you are as an authentically empowered way of being, despite contrast and projections, shadows, distortions, and limited reflections.
