This whole concept of Heart-life really isn’t difficult or deep — in and of itself. We come equipped with Heart, we can choose to operate with Heart, and that means eternal Spirit is in us, for us, and is us.
The questions of life, those biggies of Who am I? and Why am I here?, those occur because of Ego. Yep. We come to this life to experience everything we can in all the fulness of every facet of everything we come in contact with. But Ego, ah, Ego. Isolate. Protect. But this is part of our existence — the tension, paradox, conflict. However, when we understand, it isn’t hard except for the shedding, dissolving, and peeling back of Ego. This process maximizes our — and Spirit’s — experience. It’s really pretty awesome.
Except — except for when people give up on or reject Heart and buy into Ego. How do people buy into Ego? Ever hear words like impossible or incapable? Or things like I’m right; you’re wrong? Or how one religion is better than another or THE truth? Yeah, all Ego, all inflexible, all isolationist and protectionist, all holding us back from discovery of happiness — true, deep, daily happiness.
My ideas of the last few days have been based on our desire for these intimate connections with life organic and inorganic, the wonders and beauties of creatures and of the intricacies of this Universe — because that’s what Spirit wants to enjoy. Along with that was the concept I shared last night of my view of life as being a spot, a drop rather than a time continuum, the implication being time is an illusion and in one sense — Heart sense, spiritual sense — eternity is a reality; time has no claim on eternity.
Our journey has no predetermined end but what we give it and how we live it. The whole design involves dissolving Ego and growing into consciousness of our true nature. That’s the intent. That’s the joy and the challenge.
And I still plan on dealing with Wordsworth’s beautiful work, but I won’t do that tonight.
Blessings in the journey!
