+ Coming from the heart is denial of that which is one

Someone in Spain recently had the heart replaced by the above heart made of plastic. In other words, a heart is not you, but solely a mechanic thing you have to pump the blood around. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Your heart is not you. That is why you say ´my heart´. It is a tool needed for pumping blood around the body in order to supply its cells with oxygen. In other words, coming from the heart simply means to come with oxygen, which is purely mechanical. That is why nowadays the heart can be replaced with a construction of plastic like the one in the above image. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

In order to be part of something bigger it seems, that it is a crucial to be coming from the heart. It also seems, that you must follow a special dress code to signal, that you are part of something different. If not, the group of supposedly spiritual and warm-hearted people excludes you, which they also do, if you are very organised, have a clear mind and tend to follow plans instead of just spontaneously float around.

But not following plans is not a problem for most of those having dreams of coming from the heart, because due to their big ego, they are not able to commit and/or adjust to common rules of the world.

Those bothered by the rigidness of their ego often want to escape it by coming from the heart. They assume that spontaneity will break the restricting rules they experience to be imposed on them  – often from outside as they most likely have projected the rigidness of their ego onto the world.

Yet going against something – whether experienced to be inside or outside – is just another way of being part of it. Hence they play the game of the ego, which is to make you appear as if you are more special than others.

Hence they fight the ways of the world. They want to change them into something better, which is another way of saying, they want to shape the world to their ego. This egoistic goal is hidden behind much talk about love, which is practised through lots of hugs and talks about a better tomorrow in their rather chaotic events, that generally are confusingly advertised, as they are against clarity and direction.

All experiences are fabricated in the brain, regardless where they are interpreted to come from or if they seem to be so-called spiritual, divine or mundane. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

Blood is coming from the heart with oxygen to the cells of the body. That is all. So if you experience feelings and intuition to come from the heart as well, which were common until science about 200 years ago discovered that all experiences are manufactured by the brain, it is exactly that, namely something you experience. Thus you do not come from the heart but the brain.

Altogether coming from the heart seems to be a directionless and chaotic affair. Much like non-duality where it is impossible to plan for something specific, as it is without time and space. Yet coming from the heart has nothing to do with non-duality, because in this context non-duality is as ordered as it is chaotic. And there is so much light that the direction, although there is none, is very clear, whereas those claiming to come from the heart exclude clarity and order in an attempt to appear spontaneous.

A lotus flower appears very pure because of the surrounding mud. Contrasts are what makes a world of duality appear to be there. Without contrasts there is nothing to experience.

And they do right by excluding something, if what they want is to feed and play into the experience of duality, as this is only possible through separation. Hence trying to implement non-duality in a world of duality is like trying to use the currency of your native country in a foreign country. It is not possible, before it has been converted.

The way of duality is separation. Any kind of help or support enhances the belief in separation and therefore also the feeling of suffering. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

The foundation of duality is the belief in separation. And as any kind of help or support depends on this belief, it enhances the suffering that this belief entails. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

In other words, the currency of non-duality, which is that which is one, must be separated into more than one, if you want to experience a world of duality. And whether you are aware of it or not, this is also what you do, when claiming to come from the heart, because in order to appear spontaneous you separate yourself from its contrast, the clarity of consciousness by projecting it onto science or something else you judge to be heartless.

In a world of duality that which is you seems to be separated into two opposing parts, one that appears as if it is someone definitive and another as if it is a world of multiple appearances outside of the other part.

The concept of coming from the heart misleads both parts, as it implies there is a way to solve separation, whereas it actually it increases it, since it requires more than one to solve anything.

You probably also believe, that you are more spiritual and full of compassion than those not coming from the heart, which is only possible because you use the currency of separation. Furthermore you may send love, healing and whatnot to those considered having less than you, and this is also only possible by using the currency of separation. So your apparent good deeds are just a disguise for enhancing the belief in separation and hence the suffering that it causes.

If you claim to come from the heart, it is difficult to have the belief in duality undone, because it must be undone where it is conceived, namely in the brain. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The experience of a tangible and dimensional world is a fabrication carried out by the brain – also if you experience yourself to be spiritual, coming from the heart, living in the now and whatnot.

It can be compared to the world you experience, when putting on a set of virtual reality glasses. Everything you see is virtual, and though you can choose what to do, the way you do it is preprogrammed – not your perception of it though, and that is what determines, whether you believe it is real or not.

This is not to say, that you are a bad person. You are just like anybody else, who believe in duality as reality. But should you actually want to help, you can help everybody – the person you appear to be and those experienced to be outside of it – by not using the currency of duality.

This is done by totally including one side of a contrast – for example of the contrast chaos / order. As this inclusion cancels out the apparent difference between the opposing sides in the contrast*, and as that momentarily rubs off on other contrasts, there is no separation to perceive. Hence the foundation for the belief, that you are someone definitive in a world of duality, is gone, so you are in a state of not-knowing**.

It is not easy to undo a belief, you are not aware off. So if you want to undo the belief in duality, do not try to escape it by superimposing rosy ideas like coming from the heart upon it, but include ugliness as well as beauty, so that there is no contrast to define duality and therefore nothing to hide, there is no more than non-duality.

To not exclude but include cannot work though, if you believe to come from the heart, as exclusion must be corrected where it is executed, and that is not in the heart but in the brain. Yet the idea of coming from the heart is not a hindrance, if included where it is conceived.
