Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Default Hearts

Have been contemplating the human heart;
how delicate it truly is ( Beautiful really,
when it opens like a flower to embrace itself)...

But what is it made of? Not the one that pumps blood thru
our bodies, but the ethereal heart; what does it consists of?
i think of the many stories of people who have died and
come back; how they say they go towards the light and feel
immersed in cosmic love. Are they walking right into the heart
of consciousness? And could the heart of consciousness be the
heart of God? And is that what our hearts are made of too?
Are they one and the same; Heart and Consciousness?
Consciousness and God? Is that the God that is within?
Think about it? When we are feeling our hearts, what is the
heart essentially? Where are those feelings coming from?

Again i think of how delicate the heart is; my own heart in
particular. i remember once i said to Brit "some things we just
don't get over". Like for instance, my father (among many fine
outstanding attributes) was a pedophile and that caused great
damage to my heart. i truly believe i am quite content today
flying solo as a result. Now Shirley would say i created it all in
order to navigate thru it all to arrive at just this place of
contentment. But while that notion resonates with me, it also
prompts me to wonder just how far back the damage goes?
How many lifetimes back does it go?
Or is it that we are all one heart and the damage is collective
for the myriad reasons; from the myriad harmful things
happening all at once? And what we feel in our hearts is
every heart. Perhaps that's what empathy truly is? Feeling
the cosmic heart.

You may say to me you don't have these troubles; your heart
is fine. and that's fine.

But what i'm realizing is (tho i am at peace and quite content
with myself these days) my heart is still broken and has been for
a very long time. Just an observation. No prayers please. i'm fine.

But if you should be inclined to share some revelation you have
about your own heart? or some revelation you have about the
cosmic heart? Well now, that would be grand. Soft Grin...

Joy and Light,

Chi, Loved your post. I agree with your comment "what we feel in our hearts is every heart" and the "cosmic heart." Sometimes when I hear horrible news stories about people suffering, it effects me so deeply. It will stay with me for days or weeks and makes me so sad. I agree with what I once read somewhere that "we are all one, so whatever happens to one of us is essentially happening to all of us." That makes sense to me and explains why I feel so strongly.
Many people would probably disagree with this and say they are not effected in the same way. Maybe they are closed off to this "cosmic oneness." Or it just isn't their path this time around. It's probably much easier that way!
So, thanks Chi. Love reading your posts.

Thanks everyone for your replies.

Regarding your statement "Many people would probably
disagree with this and say they are not effected in the same way..."

i thought about that... and had to laugh as it hit me. Isn't that
one of the symptoms of a broken heart; to shut down and
remain so to some extent to protect itself from feeling? And so
now i see that Denial may be involved too.

i continue to contemplate the human heart and the heart of all
things in general and the state of our affairs... and it keeps
bringing me back to the same conclusion: It seems all the
imbalance and dysfunction in the world can be traced back to
a broken heart. Can it be that simple and yet that complex?
And if this is so.... How do we mend the broken heart of
human consciousness?
