Felt Sense from the Deep Heart

.

“When we drop a question into the heart area and don’t go to the ordinary mind for an answer, we are opening to this felt sense.

The response may first come as a subtle sensation — a vibration, for example — or it may come as a faint feeling or sensation somewhere in the body.

If we are wired visually, our response may arise as an image that may or may not also be accompanied by sensations, feelings, or words.

Ordinarily distinct modes of sensing and thinking tend to blend. Our best poets and writers have access to this multidimensional level, weaving their magic with surprising words and images.

Sometimes a wordless knowing arises — a vibrant silence.

For instance, when we explore the truth of our core limiting beliefs, we often come in touch with a wordless knowing of their irrelevance.

If we inquire into who we really are, we will quickly come to a “don’t know.”

This is not a mistake.

It signals that we have gone as far as the ordinary mind can go.

We have made a critically important discovery — the limit of the mind’s ability to know that which is not an object.

.

The mind is designed to grasp ideas just as our hands are designed to grasp objects, but the mind is incapable of grasping the infinite.

.

This realization brings a letting go and a new kind of openness — an openness to being open.”

    That resonates with me

    My ordinary mind can not find its way out of PTSD

    My heart knows the way if I can connect on a deep level with it

    I am relieved that ‘don’t know’ is a valid answer when inquiring about who I am. That happened recently and, boy, did I feel lost then. Thank you for the insight.

  3. I do not think we will ever know who we are, we can heal more but that question will always have a cloudy answer

    Thanks Rudid

  4. A beautiful capture and reflection. Thank you Marty 🙏🏼💛
