Heartfullness: Surrendering the mind to the wisdom of the heart 


In Buddhism, where the concept of mindfulness originated, the heart is considered the seat of the mind. 

The true mind, the wise voice within us, always resides in the heart. Our hearts contain unlimited compassion, wisdom, and Divine connection. 

In our western philosophy, the mind has normally been equated with the brain. I have nothing against brains. I, personally, have lots of them! 😉 It is just important to remember that the intellect’s true purpose is to serve the wisdom of the heart. Not the other way around. 

So if you live in North America, I recommend changing your meditation practice to heartfullness. 

Use the power, wisdom, courage, and compassion of the heart to lead you to stillness. Surrender your clever brain and let your heart lead the way. 

Brains only work if they are connected to a functioning heart. Let the heart lead and the brain follow.
