Matters of the Heart



 


From Youtube.com  - Published on Apr 22, 2013
 
"The Spiritual Heart -- is in a way a little like a smart phone, invisibly connecting us to a large network of information. It is through an unseen energy that the heart emits that humans are profoundly connected to all living things. The energy of the heart literally links us to each other. Every person's heart contributes to a 'collective field environment.' This short video explains the importance of this connection and how we each add to this collective energy field. The energetic field of the heart even connects us with the earth itself ... "


On January 31, 2004 (a Friday afternoon, I clearly remember), I was driving in a torrential Florida downpour and the word(s) heARTmatters popped into my head … it was spelled exactly the way I just wrote it ... all one word with ART capitalized. It kept repeating itself over and over. I had no idea what it meant ... 

In the weeks that followed, I became obsessed. “In my inimitable style,” I began exploring and researching quotes, history, symbolism, trademarks and URLs. I found all kinds of fascinating material relating to the heart ... not only with regard to science, medicine and art ... but to history, religion, intelligence ... and obviously Love.

"... Celebrated as the home of faith, love and courage, and the seat of the soul. No other organ has inspired so many poets, writers, painters, and religious thinkers, and references to it abound in literature, art and religion, advertising, cultural kitsch, song lyrics, and everyday language and imagery." - - Louisa Young, The Book of the Heart 


I think I discovered HeartMath even before that fateful day in 2004. I have the paperback addition of The HeartMath Solution ... and that came out in 2000, so I guess it was on my mind even way back then. The mission and vision of The HeartMath Institute speak directly to my heART and soul … What they do and say has always made perfect sense to me … 

Over time, I came up with a few conclusions of my own ... There's ART in Every heART ... Everyone has a heART ... And Everyone's heART matters ...
