The Unification of the Heart

Author: Bluethorne
Posted: May 2nd. 2010
Times Viewed: 1,808

A new path of inspiration has recently come to my mind that has directed me towards an experimental basis of writing. I cannot categorize the basis of this writing into the other specified sections, and so for now this article will remain in the miscellaneous section. Although this new path does not follow logically in order with what I’ve written previously on this site, I still find it quite important to write about and I hope you enjoy it.

I believe that when our physical body is created, our hearts are separated in many ways. The separation of our heart yields us quite different qualities from other people, not only in emotional ways, but spiritual as well. Ones person passion may be drawn to faith, others to music, or sports, or anything at all. The passions we hold may drive us crazy, or to any end which we may see as truth. The sections driving our passions for our personal truth are what I call the drive of the heart. The heart’s drive can be developed to extreme heights by holding faithful to our path and by blocking lesser ambition from it. When we understand the direction we are heading, we can then push the drive of our personal nature to wherever we may wish to take it.

The will to carry forth with our intent provides our hearts with a path of focus. Sticking true to what we wish for and remaining faithful to its idea allows our wishes to manifest into reality. Every day we can see examples of those who follow their hearts and dreams, and the outcome of their path. Most of these people struggle through difficult times to manifest their reality, for they are driven by other forces than their hearts.

We do not need to compare or follow the paths of others to be equally successful, for our capacity to achieve greatness or anything at all lies within us. However, many people in this world do not know or believe in love, for they let history lay their fortunes for them instead of relying on a faithful eventuality to take place.

To me, history and faith are perhaps the two great oppositions in life, for although it maybe our history which draws our faith forth, it is actually the faith in a thing which creates our history. History does not lie solely in the past, but in the present and future as well. When we think of history as an account of time spent, we can alter the present to determine our past. With subtle choices we can then spread forth into our future plans and shape the immediate present time with these choices, which then flow to the past. All we require to remain constant in our path are the small choices that shape our present life. We can take what we are to do and elevate it with our hearts determination, by doing so we begin to see the unification of the heart.

The true unification of our heart comes from the same source as everyone’s around us, and so we are left with only two types of people in the world, the faithful, and the fearful. While the faithful progress through their lives in positive ways, it is the fearful who attempt with what seems to be their entire self to cause hurt and pain in all around them. In the grand scheme of things it may not make much difference to hurt or help another, yet we make no positive progress in our lives if the small present choices are clouded by the negativity of others.

It is quite easy in this life to assume things are going to go badly if they have already done so for a long time and if we expect that they will. The reason for our assumed thought is due to the negative ways of how society has raised us. Society states that we should stay hopeful in hurtful times; however it does not tell us or teach us how, instead it teaches that reality is greed, and that is the hurt in the hearts of modern day.

Contrary to popular belief, fulfillment of our hearts desire does not lie in money. If money did not exist, the next most needful thing, which we would desire, would be the one that truly completes our hearts. The richest man in the world would be the one who awakens every day with a smile and a kiss and looks to his life, and is proud and loving of all he has.

In our society, the more possessions we have; the more fearful of losing them we become, and behind the happy and rich exterior lies a person who has never truly been rich; for he has no true unity and no truly great story to tell. Of course most would come to the fact that we need money to live in modern society, yet if we become happy and accepting of our lives, we become open to all we need, and there is no longer the fear of losing it because we truly earned all of it.

There are doubts in all places of life that attempt to deny that love is the greatest treasure of all, but the poor people find love by being accepted for who they truly are, while the wealthy are seen only by greedy people who never learn of true love. While modern people would much rather be taken care of than actually love, it is not a natural thing to sink our hearts into death, just for meaningless possessions. Again however, others will say that a poorer man does not try, or have ambition and so he is a loser. If he does not give up on his desires of his heart however, he will never truly lose himself to the conditioning o society, like so many around him. If he is loved, and has found his unification, he will very easily progress far ahead, due to the true ambition for his love.

In the end however it is the paths we endure which shape our history, and not the paths we choose. When we have been drawn to a path of choice, it is in our hearts where all answers truly lie. If it is truly your will to unify your heart with something pure and meaningful, the best and only true thing which remains is keeping true to that thing no matter what may occur. If a friends attempts to draw you from it, even with seemingly sincere words, then they are not a friend; for a real friend accepts you for who you are and by having tried to sway your heart are actually attempting to change you to suit their needs.

No person can truly change another, yet they can draw forth positive thoughts that can bring light to lost hope, and those are the real friends in your life. To bring this all to a conclusion I will say that only by following your heart will you ever be free enough to live a proper, happy, and loving life; the world honors you for doing the natural, and love is the most natural of all things.
