lotusI was asked the following:

I have a question. I’m reading a very interesting book about enlightenment through the meditation and concentration of the heart. I was just wondering, is it possible to become enlightened through heart consciousness?Entering our mental space via the heart?

To which I respond:

“The Heart” has been incorrectly translated from the ancient literature to mean the emotional heart.  They actually meant the heart of your being… the Transcendent. So many have been so mislead by so many well intended, but mistaken, people.

When the transcendental root of life is watered, love naturally blossoms. However, striving to water the root by forcing the blossom to open is not correct.
