Look to this day, for it is life, the very breath of life. In its brief course lie all the realities of your existence; the bliss of growth, the glory of action, the splendor of beauty. For yesterday is only a dream, and tomorrow is but a vision. But today, well lived, makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day.
Much before the astronomical cycle of the past 5,125 years, human beings used a form of language completely unlike the present. This language was of the heart. As ancient as the rocks and wind, this mode of communication created a fusion between mind and body, a coherence of both right and left brain hemispheres, and a knowledge of thought and feeling as one.
The transmission centre was the secret chamber of the heart known as the Shante Ishta, the single eye of the heart. Indigenous peoples, such as the Mayan, the Aztec and the Kogi still believe the secret chamber of the heart to be the core of all that is sacred about life. Indeed, it is recorded in the book of Genesis, that in ancient times all people of the Earth knew one language, until humanity defied God by building the great Tower of Babel – ‘making their names to be scoredupon heaven’.
God’s infinite wisdom responded by dispersing all nations, by separating all people in order to confound their intention. From thence the soul became individualized, and egoist tendencies inflated the notion of separation from the Source. The life of heart-felt communion became isolated in each person, until this time.
The Secret Chamber Of The Heart
The secret chamber of the human heart is where the individual soul attunes to the collective, universal heartbeat, that unites us all through a vast field of intention — that of consciousness. When we choose to love from our heart we enter into a chamber of creation where all things meet in genesis, the legendary ‘gene of Isis’, for it is from the Great Mother Isis, the formative energy of the primordial silence, that all life originally arose. And so the truth of creation unfolded and still unfolds.
There is an ancient legend of the magical Isis, who was the Goddess of Fertility in the myths of ancient Egypt. Isis was the daughter of Geb, the God of the Earth, and Nut, the Goddess of the overarching sky. Isis, story suggests that her husband, Osiris, had been cruelly killed by the jealous Set, and his dismembered body parts, thirteen in all, had been strewn about the Earth. However, Isis found and brought together twelve of the parts, excepting Osiris’s penis; this she fashioned anew from gold, and sang a song of such exquisite beauty that Osiris was resurrected from death, and became the Lord of the Afterlife.
If we can follow the example of Isis, taking her song of creation and once more singing our own song, speaking the language of our hearts from the secret chamber of the heart, we may truly become a vessel for the embodiment of love. Then ingratitude, judgment, hatred, lack of compassion, or refusing to forgive cease to exist – for to be anything other than love is to be without soul.
The Power Of The Heart
Science reveals that a human fetus’s heart begins beating before the brain is formed. This ‘auto-rhythm’ suggests the heart to have a self-initiated beat, which precedes conscious thought, dispelling the illusion of the brain’s intellectual function as the foremost principle in the creation of human life – the heart’s beating is the elixir that enervates human consciousness.
The heart has its own independent nervous system with 40,000 neurons, as many as are found in the sub-cortex of the brain. Scientific experimentation at the Fels Institute for Cancer Research and Molecular Biology in Philadelphia discovered that when the brain sends orders to the heart, the heart doesn’t obey. Instead, the heart appears to be sending messages back to the brain, and the brain not only understands it obeys. It must be our utmost conviction to allow the power of our hearts to manage our thoughts and feelings, to live to the heartbeat of emotional truth. As we consciously move to the beat of this drum, transformation reveals a bridge between linear thinking and intuitive sensing. This landscape alone provides us with both a greater perception, and a way of creating solutions to face future complexity with greater ease.
We must stop the frenzy of our stress-filled living, fulfilling functions that simply create disease. We must stop the actions that lead to the closing of the heart, and the explosions of the heart in the form of cardiac arrest.
