The Mind Does Not Understand What the Heart Experiences

Let go2.jpg

As time rolls by and I continue noodling on this wonderful opportunity called "life", I am increasingly realizing that the MIND has very little capacity to understand what the HEART experiences. The heart experiences ecstasy, unconditional love, and the peace that passes all understanding while the mind, like some kind of over-caffeinated 11:00 news anchor, tries to report what it THINKS the heart just experienced. Ha! Sorry, ladies and gentlemen. No can do. The mind simply does not have access to the realm of the heart, nor does it have the language, no matter how learned it may be. And this is one of the great plays of life -- what Mark Twain once described as the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.

All of us, at some time in our lives, have experienced the ineffable grandeur of existence, though the catalyst for our beyond-the-beyond experience may have been totally different. Trying to tell others about it always comes up short. Rumi, Hafiz, and Kabir made noble efforts towards this end -- or is it the beginning? And the afterglow of reading their poetry often sheds enough light to see more clearly than ever before. But even that afterglow fades.

The key for all of us? To abide in the heartland of what life is really all about. To experience the utter WHOO HOO of the whole kit and kaboodle with ease, grace, and gratitude. And then, to stay there, as best we can, no matter what. And if we choose to express something or other from this realm of wowee zowee, to do so in the same way a child laughs, the full moon shines, and all the great Masters, since the beginning of time, teach without teaching.

The audience for your testimonial will be the general public.

Some of the testimonials will be included in a future article about the value of Knowledge that will be published on PremRawat.com.

We All Need More Courage

Let's face it. These are challenging times for all of us. As if Covid-19 wasn't enough to rattle our bones, now there is the Russian invasion of Ukraine and millions of refugees seeking shelter, not to mention climate change, supply chain issues, shaky economies, and whatever personal issues you and your loved ones are facing.

At times like this, there is no magic pill, but there IS an alternative to suffering under the apparent weight of it all -- and that alternative begins by tapping into your own courage. Yes, courage!

Below are five short audio clips of Prem Rawat holding forth on this most important topic. Find your courage, friends. And help others, do the same.

Defeat the dragons (3:45)
Lord of the jungle (2:50)
A most memorable event (4:00)
You (2:10)
It's up to you (2:51)
