Freedom of Heart

God said:

The mind that thinks so much doesn't think at all. It doesn't think: "To what avail is all the cogitating I do?" The mind keeps on the same without regard to what is going on around it. It takes note, but keeps bulldozing through regardless of the situation. Thus, you have mindset. Your mind got programmed, and it is hard for it to stop.

In that sense, the mind is one-pointed. Like the prow of a ship, it makes a furrow. It makes short work of debris, tidal wave, Human life, the same. The mind plows through. It may be glad to finish with one thing and move on to another, but the conclusion is the same. The mind tosses matters aside while it frets them.

You think the mind is a seeker of truth, but you are. Heart and soul, you seek truth. The mind seeks evidence. It pounces on it. It forgets the point. It ignores essence, and aggrandizes structure. The mind likes to say: "Aha, I told you so."

The weary mind holds danger to it. It thinks you, the holder of it, are fragile. It would protect you, you who need no defense. Common heart is what you require. Common sense often distracts you from your purpose. Common sense would hold you to a standard.

The word "common" is not meant to mean ordinary, accepted, the smart thing. It is meant to relate to sharing between people. You have your heart in common with all others. Your mind too for that matter. All minds seem to congratulate themselves. Pay less mind to what your mind says. Listen to the beat of your heart.

You want more in life. That does not necessarily mean more of the same. The odds are that you are ready for a departure from a staid place. You are ready for adventure.

Those who discovered new worlds often stood on a peak. They climbed there. They believed in their inner compass more than what the world told them to think. In that way, they were heroes. They were heroes of heart. It wasn't their mind they listened to. It was their heart. Mind would have told Columbus: "Are you crazy? Sailing to the rim of the earth? What if you fall off? What if you are mistaken? No, stay quiet. Stay where you are as you are. You have enough fame and fortune. Think of yourself."

But Columbus was into truth. It was truth he sailed to.

You might say he had a vision. You may say he saw a star and he sailed by it. His faith was in vision. His thought was on what he saw before him and not on what textbooks and the world declared. He was writing his own book, and so must you.

Could Columbus have been swallowed up by the sea? Then he would not have been remembered, but he would not have been less of a hero. The outcome does not make one a hero except to the world who holds great value for outcomes. The making of a hero is in his setting out. And so you now set out on a new voyage.

Your mind and the world's mind may tell you are jumping off a cliff, but they don't know. The world mind is fraught with danger. The world shows pictures of danger before you. The world says that anything but the sure thing is danger. It advertises all kinds of danger and that includes the living of life. Avoidance is the world's theme. The world would sell you many things to prevent life. It would keep you from wrinkles and wisdom. It would chain you to danger and keep you subject to it. Choose freedom of heart, beloveds.

wrinkles and wisdom

The mind that thinks so much doesn't think at all.

How simple, powerful and true. Immediately added to favorites. It's been a while since I last saw a Heavenletter of such stark beauty and air-clearing bluntness. The best piece I have ever read on the value of cogitation.

How resilient creation must be that the bulldozing mind has still not managed to level it.

Fabulous! Thank you, beloved
