Coming from the heart is a 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.

The heart is not you. That is why it is called your heart. It is just a tool needed for pumping blood around the body to supply its cells with oxygen. In other words, coming from the heart means merely to go with oxygen. As this is a purely mechanical thing, the heart can nowadays be replaced with a construction of plastic like the one in the above image. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

It seems to be a common belief, that to be spiritual, you must come from the heart, and manifest you are part of something bigger by joining a group of like-minded people.

Unfortunately, most of these groups with supposedly warm-hearted people do not tolerate ways of expression that are not endorsed by their guru, so if you do not follow the dress code, for example, you are excluded. And you will probably also be excluded, if you are very organised, have a clear mind and tend to follow plans instead of spacing out and hugging everybody in the group.

To not follow plans, however, does not seem to be a problem for most of those believing in coming from the heart, as they have such a need to be special and independent, that it is impossible to commit to a plan or adjust to the conventional rules of society.

Most who feel limited by the world are often restricted by their own rules of how to be in the now, come from the heart and whatnot, which they deny by projecting their control onto the world experienced to be outside of them, so it seems their feeling of imprisonment is caused by it and that its rules, therefore, must be changed in order for them to be free.

But what you fight you enhance, so every time you try to change something or somebody judged to be different from you feel more restrained.

That is why rules must be changed into something that suits their needs. This selfish intention, however, is hidden behind lots of hugs and talk about peace, love and unity in their somewhat chaotic events, that generally are advertised very confusingly, as one of their rules is that clarity and direction restrict the heart.

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.

The heart is a muscle from where blood transports oxygen to the cells of the body. If you also have an experience of something spiritual coming from it, you are deceiving yourself, because as science discovered more than 200 years ago, all experiences comes from the brain, as that is where they are fabricated.*

Since intuition and spontaneity can be said to be part of non-duality, those claiming to come from the heart could be considered to be coming from it. But as being factual and planning has been excluded for them to appear intuitive and spontaneous, they do not come from the inclusiveness of non-duality but the exclusiveness of duality.

Without contrasts it is the surrounding  not be possible to experience a world of duality. A lotus flower, for example, would not seem to give you a specific experience of purity if not contrasted by mud.

In other words, non-duality is as intuitive and spontaneous as it is factual and planned and as coming from the heart is based on excluding the latter, it has nothing to do with non-duality but everything to do with duality. And if what you want is to feed and play into the experience of that, you do right in separating yourself from something, because the experience of duality depends on the perception, that there is more than the oneness of non-duality.

In other words, just like the currency of your native country cannot be used in other countries without being changed, the formlessness of non-duality cannot be implemented in a tangible world of duality without being 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.

The currency of non-duality, which is the formlessness of oneness, must be split into contrasts of opposing fragments – for example, spontaneous and planned – to fabricate an experience of duality.** And whether you are aware of it or not, this is also what you do, when you claim to come from the heart because to appear as if you are spontaneous, you separate yourself from its contrast – to be planned – by projecting it onto somebody 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 to be someone definitive and another one as if it consist of multiple of appearances outside of it.

But the concept of coming from the heart is misleading for both parts, because it implies there is a way to unite them, whereas it actually increases the belief in separation, since there would be no idea of union without this belief.

You may also believe, that you are more spiritual and full of compassion than those judged not to come from the heart, and this differentiation is only possible with the currency of separation. Furthermore, you probably send love, healing and whatnot to those interpreted as being and/or having less than you, which also only is possible by using the currency of separation.

If you do not believe to be someone definitive, you cannot suffer from pain, because it takes someone definitive to have a specific experience.

Hence your apparent good deeds and attempts to make a difference are just a disguise for enhancing the belief in separation, as they make you appear to be more special than others.

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 – including the experience of you as spiritual, coming from the heart, living in the now and whatnot.

It can be compared to the experience you have when using a virtual reality headset. It feels like being in a real world. Yet nothing is real and all choices are preprogrammed – except how to perceive it, and that is what determines, whether you believe to be there or not.

If you really want to make a difference, stop using the currency of separation to perceive, that the apparent difference between you and others to make a difference.

There is no difference between god, you and me, as everything that appears to be separated are equally illusionary, since it takes more than one to appear as someone, who is different from others, and there is no more than that which is one, because it is formless and therefore endless.

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

It is not easy to undo a belief, that you are not aware of. 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 its apparent ugliness as well as its beauty, so that there is no contrast to define a world of duality and therefore nothing to hide, there is no more than the formlessness of non-duality.

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

Those who want to come from the heart instead of the brain have a point because coming from the brain is confusing. Unfortunately so is coming from the heart.

You neither come from the heart or the brain but nowhere.

It is not possible to come from anywhere at all since that which is you is no different from that which is one, and it requires more than one to come from somewhere – or to be someone. That is why insecurity is the price of believing to be someone at all.

Be aware that the above is spoken from the perspective of that which is one, and since it requires more than one to read this, you believe to be someone in a world where there seems to be more than one. In other words, you better relate to where you believe to be if you want to have this belief undone. And as the experiences the brain processes on account of the signals it receives from the senses is used to confirm this belief, it is in the brain a correction must be made.

You already correct lots of deceitful experiences made by the brain, for example when the Earth in front of you is experienced to be flat, you adjust this experience so that it reflects a round earth*****. But as the world according to science consist of empty space, all experiences of you as someone definitive surrounded by a substantial world should be corrected to emptiness. When corrected in this way, there do not appear to be something definable hiding, there is no more than the formlessness of that which is one.

In the world of the inner senses everything has the same importance, so there is nothing to react on and therefore nothing to confirm you as someone definitive. As that means you are nothing there is  nobody to notice , that without excitement there is peace.

This correction of the signals from the senses you can read more about in hack #4.4, ´´The empty breath´ and the bliss of not believing to be someone and hack #5-7.4: The inner senses, the enlightenment of that which is one and glimpses of it.
