- The heart has its own central nervous system and is not simply under the rule of the brain.
- The heart is the source of our connection to a consciousness greater than the ego.
- Approaching life with an open heart means that we have opened the door to this greater consciousness, taking up residence alongside it in the seat of our soul.
- Approaching life with an open heart is as simple as shifting your attention onto your heart.
Meditating, with your attention on your heart, benefits both the physical heart and the energetic heart.
When we open our hearts, they may feel tender and vulnerable, which simply means that they need our loving attention as we cleanse and heal them of past hurts and blockages. This process asks us to practice some of the heart’s greatest lessons—patience, compassion, and unconditional love.
