Science of the Heart



Ancient Understanding of the Heart Field
by Gregg Braden (Alternate location here)

Quote:
The results of these experiments have led us to infer that the nervous system acts as an “antenna,” which is tuned to and responds to the electromagnetic fields produced by the hearts of other individuals. We believe this capacity for exchange of energetic information is an innate ability that heightens awareness and mediates important aspects of true empathy and sensitivity to others. Furthermore, we have observed that this energetic communication ability can be intentionally enhanced, producing a much deeper level of nonverbal communication, understanding, and connection between people. There is also intriguing evidence that heart field interactions can occur between people and animals. -- source

What makes humans so different from other animals?

More importantly, why do we even think we are different?

I was really struck by something in this Gregg Braden interview that apparently took place just a few months ago in Romania. Near the end (starting at 49:30), he says we are transitioning into a new world, one where the question is no longer what can I take from this world, but what can I give or share with this world. That is the same transition that I see is coming. It is the transition from the sociopathic mindset to the empathetic mindset. It can only happen if the ruling sociopaths are removed from power. For thousands of years the sociopaths have reigned, and humanity has suffered greatly. What if we could change that? How would we do it? What would be the result?

I ran across another example illustrating this point. What is the difference between a human, a dog, and a moray eel? The more I look into such comparisons, the more I am inclined to say that the similarities far outweigh the differences. The term "dumb animal" is almost as ubiquitous as the term "intelligent human", yet I increasingly see so much intelligence in animals and so little in humans that the intelligence quotients are approaching equality. In other words, "we are all one" is not as easily dismissed as many ethnocentric humans might claim.

When humans patiently approach the animal world on the level of respectful equality, some unexpected results materialize, suggesting that what we are taught is not as wise as we are led to believe.

Before you run out looking for your own pet moray eel, it is wise to realize that misunderstandings occur, and the price of those misunderstandings can be steep.

And don't forget Steve Irwin, the "Crocodile Hunter" of TV fame, who lost his life to a sting ray.

To a human, I would say, "Be careful. Animals can be hazardous to your health."

To an animal, I would say, "Be careful. Humans can be hazardous to your health."

Sort of the same message, isn't it. Also note that both can be beneficial to your health.

There is a fundamental difference between the behavior of a sociopath and the behavior of a non-sociopath. If you study the difference, you will understand the age-old battle of good versus evil.

M. E. Thomas, in her book Confessions Of A Sociopath, recounts her story of finding a baby opossum in peril of drowning in a swimming pool:

Quote:
Today she is giving a private swim lesson. She flings a towel on a deck chair and kicks off her sandals. There’s a casual recklessness about the way she does these things, as if letting loose wayward objects into the world with abandon. That’s when she notices the ripples on the surface of the water. She sees that there is something moving in the pool.

It is so small that she doesn’t recognize it until she’s close—a baby opossum, probably only a week old, its tiny pink paws frantically paddling, its even tinier pink nose struggling above the surface of the water. The poor thing must have fallen into the pool in the night. It is too little to thrust its tiny body up and over the nearest ledge. The baby’s muscles quake with exhaustion. Even its tiny sparkling eyes look tired; it is on the brink of succumbing to fatigue.

The young woman moves quickly, sliding her sandals back on, and pauses for a moment at the top of the deck. She grabs a net and heads toward the opossum. The camera cuts in as the net lowers, dipping into the surface of the water, catching the baby opossum under the belly just in front of its hind legs. With a quick, almost effortless movement, the net drags the opossum under the surface until its head is fully submerged. The animal thrashes, its tired body now alert to a new threat. It struggles loudly, whimpering and squealing, until it finally manages to free its hindquarters from the lip of the net. But it’s barely able to gasp a breath before the net comes down again. The angle of the net is awkward though, and the animal is able to writhe out of its trap.

The young woman sighs, and the net is lifted. The baby opossum feels relief wash over it for a fraction of a second, only to resume its desperate paddling against the water. The young woman drops the net on the ground, grabs her towel, and heads back inside. Moments later she is on the phone with her private student—today’s lesson is canceled; there is something wrong with the pool. She grabs her keys, flings her front door open, and skips down the stairs to the muscle car that she’s been driving since her sixteenth birthday. The V-8 engine stutters for just a moment, then roars to life. She slams the transmission into reverse, just barely dodging the other cars in the driveway, then takes off, ready to make the most of a newly free summer afternoon.

When she returns home at dusk she sees a dark shadow at the bottom of the pool. She grabs the same net, manages to scoop up the small bundle on the first try, and pitches it over the fence into her neighbor’s yard. She drops an extra chlorine tablet into the pool and heads inside. The camera lingers on the placid pool, no longer interrupted by frantic waves. Fade to black.

I am a sociopath. -- source

Contrast the way a sociopath behaves to an animal in distress with the way a non-sociopath behaves:

Which is good, and which is evil, and why? How important is empathy in making that assessment?

Let's say that spirituality is the non-physical domain that we are mostly ignorant about. Let's also say that knowledge is power, and that there may be an active reason why we are so ignorant about spirituality. We lack knowledge of spirituality. Is that by design? Is it because spirituality doesn't exist, and therefore there is not much to know about it? Is it that we are so blind to most of reality that our reference base is wholly inadequate? Is it that our imaginations are far too rich, or far too poor? Are we simply too limited, too handicapped, a race of Helen Kellers without a teacher like Anne Sullivan?

Here's a little food for thought, from Ian R. Crane:



Exposing Human Programming ... stepping out of the Matrix!

Spirituality comes from spirit. Spirit can mean a number of things. You can have team spirit, meaning you are all rooting for or pursuing the same goal. You can have good spirits, meaning an upbeat, positive, contagious feeling of happiness or enthusiasm. You can drink spirits, which loosens your inhibitions and enhances your boldness. You can have an internal spirit, your essence, your foundation, the real you. And that may be why this TED talk told me it should be in this thread. If you listen with your heart, you are paying attention to your essence, your foundation, the real you.

Quote:
What do you want to be when you grow up? Well, if you're not sure you want to do just one thing for the rest of your life, you're not alone. In this illuminating talk, writer and artist Emilie Wapnick describes the kind of people she calls "multipotentialites" — who have a range of interests and jobs over one lifetime. Are you one? -- source

Then there are those who know what they are here for, those who are nearly singular in purpose, so focused are they on their calling. That too can be something amazing. Imagine you are here to expose the wonder and beauty of the natural world. What would you do?

Here's what Wilson A. Bentley did.
