I hear/see people saying “the Heart is more powerful than the Brain” and that “the heart is about 100,000 times stronger electrically and up to 5,000 times stronger magnetically than the brain” (these particular quoted words maybe the copyright of the Institute of HeartMath Research Centre) … but then go on to talk about the mind. In essence they are talking about the same sort of thing and non-thing I like to talk about. But it seems to me they (and many others) are muddling up their labels/metaphors of the non-physical and physical aspects of the human Being to establish a type of cause and effect reasoning … which smacks of dis-information.
Firstly, I must explain that I am making that judgement based on ONE “info-graphic” that I’ve seen often online … with their name on it. This sort of information steers people away from the Power found in our mind/Mind, in our thinking and our Imagination. Actually, it directs our Imagination to work against us! Rather like much propaganda does. By directing our focus to the “Heart” (which I believe they and I would agree they mean “Consciousness” in my words) while negating our thinking/Thinking.
Let me explain; … brain = physical organ, mind = non-physical phenomena, heart = physical organ, “Heart”/Consciousness = non-physical phenomena alluding to a “Higher Mind,” way of Thinking or Worldview.
Without being overly fixated on this particular group’s insinuation that there is something wrong about the “mental realms” as they call it … I just want to point out to anyone reading this … that without our “mental realms” we would not be communicating with each other right now. HmmmmmmMm. Without our “mental realms” there would be no opportunity to communicate with our Self …
AHA! So there is a (hidden) agenda to the “New Age Movement” afterall!
Yes, in my opinion. To dumb us down. I ask my Self; why on earth would anyone want people to stop using their “mental realms” … to trick people out of their ability to think for themselves? I keep getting the same response … to over-ride those people with a specific way of thinking. With a prevailing perspective leading to an outcome that involves controlling people en masse.
Which makes me wonder again … Why? Why do people want to control others?
Well, firstly I don’t think there are many who do, but there are oodles of copy-cat gurus out there doing what they can to make money, which is why the “Personal Growth” or “Personal Development” industry is such a large growth industry. Spirituality topics/discussions used to be channelled into religious groups, spiritual conversations, meetings, societies; now it is commercialised and competing with main stream religion.
Commercialism and competition are synonymous. Commercialism distracts us from a simply abundant lifestyle that ALL could be enjoying right now instead of only a few “high income” earners. A lifestyle in which we all Share available resources with ease like so many cultures used to ~ just not the “civilised western” ones we’ve been programmed to receive without question over the last couple of thousand years.
Back to the point I was going to make …
As the word “Heart” is synonymous with “Consciousness” it is easy to understand that Consciousness is more Powerful than the “brain” which they may have meant to represent the conscious mind ~ which is only the smallest aspect of our total Mind, if that is the case. Our conscious mind is like the tip of an iceberg, the subconscious mind being the ever expanding storehouse of our thoughts and experiences … and the Super Conscious/Consciousness aspect of the Mind being Infinite and Omnipresent on all levels.
On a physical level, OF COURSE the heart produces more electricity and electro-magnetic energy than the brain … it MOVES! It is a PUMP. In comparison, the brain is stationary as it processes electrical impulses, etc.
My suggestion: Use your Mind to Think! Don’t be tricked into not thinking for your self. Spirituality is found in our Mind, we think, speak, use our words/thoughts to reach It … Mystics know this. Mystics Know their Thoughts/Words are Creative; have the Power to materialise. Don’t let people distract you from this Truth.
It is not often you will see me referring to the Bible (a selection of stories sharing Truths and distractions) … but this is one of the Truths hidden in it in PLAIN VIEW:
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
John 1:1 – King James Bible “Authorized Version”, Cambridge Edition
Translation: In the beginning was the Thought/Word, and the Thought/Word was within God/Consciousness (our Higher Mind), and the Thought/Word was Consciousness.
Our path to this truth … is via our thinking, our conscious mind. All we need to do is DECIDE (using our conscious mind to think of the decision to do so ~ that easy!); decide that we want to experience our Consciousness, our Higher Mind ~ our “Spirituality” first hand.
