Your heart is a beautiful sun meant for all to see like a sunrise. The sun of your heart can be covered up, and yet it continues to shine its light. You can cover up your love as clouds cover the sun, yet the clouds do not stop the sun. The clouds do not even touch it. The sun shines regardless of what is superimposed upon it. The sun of your heart shines the same no matter how many fences and moats and shades of night do their cover-up.
Your heart, your beautiful heart! It is your heart, beloved. It is the midpoint between the world and Heaven. It has its feet in two boats. One boat is anchored in Heaven, and one boat is wobbly on Earth. Heaven is your love boat, beloveds. And the Earth boat seems to have no anchor, though, of course, Heaven is its anchor. There would be no Earth life without Heaven to secure it.
How I love you! I simply love you. You who read this, I love you. And you who do not read this, I love you. You are My beloved. You always were. You are My beloved right now. And you forever will be. Summed up, that means eternally you are Mine, My beloved Mine.
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.
Gloria to God:
Dear God in Heaven, what would You like to say this morning?
The heart of man is mighty.
The heart is the connection to Me.
You could say I am based there.
Respect the heart, for it is your guide.
The mind often is an interferer, a halfback that blocks you. The mind is wayward, not the heart.
The heart is. It is a sojourner.
The mind calculates.
The heart surges.
The mind withdraws.
The heart sings truth.
Sometimes it isn't easy to know the difference between your heart and whim. You want to feed your heart always but not your whims always. Whims are frosting. Your heart is the cake.
Frosting is good, but in proportion to the cake.
You are always searching for the truth that your heart already knows. Beloveds, there is nothing for you to learn. There are only the coffers of your heart to open.
How can this be, you wonder.
When you hear Truth, do you not nod your head up and down Yes? How would your heart confirm that it is Truth you are hearing unless your heart already knew it?
There are common metaphors in language that reflect higher truth. You say: "Things are looking up," "I'm feeling down," "I'm feeling uplifted," "My energy is high," "My spirits are low."
Uplift yourself with your words and your gestures.
Instead of waiting for something outside of you to help you notice the love your heart is full of, nudge your awareness along with the language of your thoughts. Create metaphors that help you recognize the ever-burgeoning love in your heart.
If you would really stop picking on yourself, you would see the fullness that you are. As it is, you hack away at yourself -- all in the name of improving yourself. Because of judgment, you decide you have to do more and become better. You look outward, and that is where you find judgment, and then you take it unto yourself.
