Why the “Spiritual Heart” Is Key
Throughout history, many cultures and spiritual practices have emphasized the importance of following our heart, listening to our heart, and gaining wisdom and intelligence from our heart. This is not a coincidence.
When we speak of the “heart” we are not referring to the physical organ but our spiritual heart. While this may be a new concept for some, it is analogous to the mind. While the brain is clearly physical in nature, the existence of the mind as a form of consciousness is universally accepted even though it cannot be detected on an MRI.
Similarly, our spiritual heart embodies a level of consciousness unto itself. More importantly, it is the center of and the key to our deepest fulfillment and the doorway to experiencing profound peace, gratitude, joy, safety, and unconditional love.
