PTSD: Heart Wisdom

One of our big issues is thinking, judging, and dissociating into the past.

We get lost trying to think our way out, always wanting to rationalize our condition.

Does this describe the “Ego” we create, that judging superstar?

Thoughts then attach to emotions, strengthening their impact.

John J. Pendergast opines, “The willingness to not know creates space for a different kind of knowing, for heart wisdom to emerge.”

Our left cognitive hemisphere dominates life, he/she is quick and competitive.

Heart wisdom is the opposite, deep, slow and neutral.

I have to get out of my head if healing is my goal.

Heart Wisdom is an unexplored resource for me, fertile ground for improvement.

Childhood abuse separated us from our hearts, we are strangers.

Maybe this is where trust sprouts for normal people.

This is the road less traveled, in my opinion.

  1. I always tried to think my way out, use my meditation sits intellectually

    Now I resist all thought while meditating, creating a space to observe.

    I have a separation from them, a space to watch from a distance or ignore

    I find my solar plexus area lights up with this approach

    Heart wisdom will not arrive cognitively, not in words or thoughts, or sentences

    My heart seems to emerge when thought rescinds

    I find having purpose, a goal like this beneficial

    I imagine you have learned a lot in the past 10 years. It’s my belief that you’ve been able to share some of that knowledge on this Blog. As a result, it’s positively impacted my attempt to reorient. I have hope for your well-being as well. Hope is a good thing.

  5. Thank you

    I hope my journey and struggle lights the way for others
