"  After our daily labors, let us gather in conversation about the heart. It will lead us through the earthly domains to the Subtle World and thereby bring us closer to the realm of Fire." Heart, preface


Over the years, I have come back to this quote many, many times. I am not, by nature, a mystic in the usual sense. My training and experience has been more along the lines of raja yoga meditation and study, which places emphasis upon developing one's mind, as it is the instrument for many spiritual enterprises. 


Yet the tone of this quote rings deep within, as I have also been trained that the mental disciple must re-coup aspects of his mystical self. To me, this quote is a great reminder. I think that is so because of the connection of the human heart in subtle ways to the heart of humanity, and thus to the essential "heart of the planet." 


If the planet is living - as I am convinced that it is - then it must have a heart and the book Heart indicates that the human heart can come into synchrony with that planetary heart, and thus with the heart of the solar system.

A very heart warming article. Reading it made me feel more calm and inspired to work more. As a single parent, I think I have more problems than the normal families. Financially, It's hard to pay for tuition and allowance in school then pay for our house rent and etc. My time is also limited as I try to overtime or get extra jobs to pay for everything. As I read through the article, I am more inspired to work harder and have more faith in our God.

We can't just function using our brain only. We need to put some heart and feelings into the things we do. After all, being humans means being able to showcase our emotions and making mistakes that show our humane side. We can't just be robots who monotonously live. We have that spiritual side, and we should always showcase it.
