The little heart
The little heart is the way to perceive and experience the density on earth. It perceives reality in a narrow way and in a personal way. In a way the little heart doesn’t understand the dynamics of earth and follows the advice of our self- interested ego.
The little heart sees a fake reality and sees our daily routine as the whole truth of existence. It sees this reality as the ultimate rightfulness, and as a way to be good and perfect.
This little heart creates stories, believes and feels our stories and acts on our stories. The little heart feels and stores the energy coming from our stories. This can be an overwhelming process because our stories and inner conversations become the basis of our identity.
The stories of our little heart create a movement which is erratic, has a dense gravity and produces only dramas, over-extensions and an unreal perception of reality. Our personal will to be good and well, to be perfect and to live on earth with the least amount of disturbance as possible moves the little heart. It creates a fantasy of hope and illusion.
When our reality shows us our lessons and challenges us with difficulties, the little heart takes them personally. The little heart has conversations that put responsibility outside of oneself.
These conversations coming from our stories can take different forms like:
Blame: “I am unhappy because life and others are doing this or that to me”.
Injustice: “Why is everybody receiving attention and I am not?”
Control: “I need to do or have a plan to get out of my pain”.
Justification: “I cannot do this or that, or have what I deserve because I don’t have time, money health etc.”
Exaltation: “I have to prove I am better than others by…”
Judgments: “Others don’t think highly of me”.
Fixations: “I know better than others so I can advise”.
Dissatisfaction: “I am missing something to be happy”.
Doubt: “Am I doing the right thing?”
Desperation: “I am at the end of my rope”.
Overextension: “I have to apply effort to everything I do; I have to apply my will”.
Victimization: “Everybody takes advantage of me”.
Disgust: “Nobody likes me”.
Grasping: “I have to keep having or doing this to be happy and well”.
Distractions: “What is new, what am I missing”?
Self-improvement: “I need to keep working on myself, make myself better”.
Impress: “I need to do or have to impress others”.
Privacy: “I need to hide my faults, thoughts and real feelings”.
Conversations are really infinite, but whatever the conversation is, the little heart sees life as a threat, as a survival and as a duty. If there is any key word to describe the little heart it is lack of self-responsibility. I am referring here not to duty but to the realization that you are the creator of your whole entire reality, and as a creator you have total management of your choices and responses.
When we live our life from the place of the little heart, we only partner up with a linear, reactive reality and with our ego. As a result we suffer in our own little and isolated world.
