The Master Key to the Universe
Your heart is the key to the entire Universe. We can even say that your heart is the Universe. Certainly, you contain the whole Universe. Your mind, as beautiful as it is, cannot contain All That Is, and yet your human heart can. Your human heart does.
Heart and mind are certainly connected, no doubt about that. And yet the mind, no matter how brilliant, is subsidiary to the heart. It is love in the heart that is the Master Key to the Universe. It is in your heart that all is known. Without getting technical, We can say that your soul resides within your heart. Your heart is the Prompter, so to speak. Your heart is connected to everything and everyone and every other single heart. We can say that your heart is the Knower, and that means you are the Knower, for it is your heart that beats the drums of love.
Love is Great Knowing. You know the kind of love I am talking about. The love that transcends all bounds. The love that is Mine.
With all due respect to your heart, your beautiful throbbing heart, it has, as you well know, been embroiled in little things hardly worth the name heart. I speak of the sort of embroilment that might be called flaming red ego. Ego is not really a boarder in your heart, beloveds. Ego is rather an invader. Surely ego makes room for itself in your heart. There are those moments when ego seems to brazenly take over your heart. You know what I'm talking about.
If you are one who has left ego behind and no longer allow it to eat at your heart, you can skip this Heavenletter now, or you can read it and just let these words fall off by the wayside the way you would drop off a hitchhiker when you are parting ways.
You have thought that your heart knows anger. It certainly seems like it does. At those times, there has been an invader of your heart, and this invader is called ego. No matter how justified your anger may be, no matter how worthy, no matter how necessary-seeming, it has no place in the Universe, and, therefore, no place in your heart.
The you that I know can handle whatever an offense may be without the assistance of anger. You don't need the stimulus of anger. Anger reveals a sense of powerlessness, as if you, a Child of God, need a hired hood for a bodyguard.
Anger not only reveals itself at every opportunity, it incurs itself. Anger, even your anger, is Johnny-on-the-Spot, ever ready, even eager, to take umbrage. It is as if anger jumps for joy at finding an occasion for itself. And yet you know that anger doesn't feel good. It eats you up.
When others are angry with you, you can, you really can, deal with their anger effectively without mirroring their anger. You do not need to be boosted onto anger's shoulders. You don't need anger to fight your battles. You don't need battles at all. You don't need to succumb to another's anger. You don't need to cater to it. You can be dispassionate. You can respond without spitfire anger.
Your God-given heart is really too big for anger. You are well aware that anger is not the bailiwick of your heart. Anger is not what your beautiful burgeoning heart is made for. Yet your beautiful God-given heart has sometimes become the hostage of ego. Beloveds, there is no glory in ego and its cohort anger.
Come back to the big picture, beloveds. Remember Who you are.
