Ascended Master Gautama Buddha
Many times we hear the saying "Follow your heart and you can't go wrong." It would be nice to agree with the statement but we humans have two hearts that send us information. Unfortunately, it can be hard to discern between the two.
We have what is called the lower heart which is where our bodily desires reside. Through this heart we express our addictions and desires that stem from fear. Following this heart impulse can lead one to misery and strife.
We also have what is call a higher heart which is where our Divine desires reside. When we follow these desires we find ourselves in a place of grace, joy and happiness.
Both heart impulses can feel right in the moment. Let us say that we really like another person and our heart is telling us to be with this person. We will often follow that impulse and wonder later why the relationship ended in such acrimony.
Do you wish to learn how to discern the difference between the higher heart desire and the lower heart desire? Keep reading and I will tell you the simplest way to discern which heart is talking to you at any one moment in time.
I will provide an example of how the lower heart can interfere with your life. Let us say that you have always had a passion for wanting to heal others. You have been attracted to the healing hearts throughout your life and you find yourself presently engaged as a physical therapist. You find this work rewarding and the healing that it brings to your patients brings joy into your heart.
At the same time you dream of starting your own company that manages groups of physical therapists. You reckon that having such a company will be able to multiply your healing effect to more and more people while at the same time provide you with the satisfaction of being a business owner. This excites you and enthuses you.
Being one that likes to listen from the heart. You feel for an answer as to whether or not this is the right path for you. You feel the excitement of the opportunity and you conclude that, yes, it is the right choice. What is happening here, however is that your lower heart is becoming excited about being a successful businessman. While there is nothing wrong with being a successful business man, the attachment or desire to become one can lead to misery and choices that lead to calamity. The lower heart was creating the feeling of excitement, the feeling of, "go for it!"
Allow me to use this example to illustrate how to really discern if this heart decision was one from the high heart or the low heart.
Follow these steps.
Step one, get into a relaxed state by sitting in a quiet room with dim lighting. sit in a comfortable chair or lay down on a bed. Close your eyes. Breath in deeply and hold the breath for a few seconds then let the breath flow out and relax. Repeat this 5 times.
Step two: Ask the following to your Higher Consciousness, "Higher Consciousness, is starting this business venture for the highest good of all?"
Step three: Feel the response from the heart. If the response is muted or not there at all then you know your answer is, "No." If the response feels like Joy and Happiness then you know that the answer is, Yes."
Follow this simple three step strategy and you will be less likely to be led astray by lower heart desires.
You, of course, have a choice in life.
If you wish you may disregard this advice.
In either path , I wish you well on your journey!
