The Heart Knows Love

“This time we take a direct approach, an approach that seems at first to leave behind abstract learning and the complex mechanisms of the mind that so betray you. We take a step away from intellect, the pride of the ego, and approach this final learning through the realm of the heart. This is why, to end confusion, we call this course A Course of Love.” (ACOL, C:P.44)

We are approaching God through our heart when we read A Course of Love. The heart doesn’t need the proofs of God’s existence as the mind does, or at least as the mind often does. The heart simply knows. And in this knowing are we led gently, the by the hand, back to the eternal that we have neglected heretofore, for eons.

How might we effect this change from the intellect to the heart? Try relaxing. Just that simple. We get ourselves so tangled up with the mind. And the heart knows. It really knows. The heart will lead us home to God. The heart is the pathway of A Course of Love.

Jesus understands that the egoic nature of our minds, right now, have betrayed us. If we haven’t reached enlightenment, the mind is a great betrayer. But the heart leaves aside this convoluted thinking. Those of us who have lived within our intellect, and been proud of our intellect, will be particularly drawn to this new message of Jesus. We will say, “Ah, yes, what a relief!” And listening to the heart will be a true relief for us.

No longer do we need to make sense of our meandering thoughts about ultimate reality. Jesus is saying just to leave all that behind, and join him in a new place. We have been just thinking too much.

So listen to your heart today. It will love more freely than the misguided mind. Later on, when we have become affixed to the heart, we will draw into the mind as well. But for now, our heart will be enough for us. Don’t let the habits of a lifetime of thinking hold us back now. Just relax in God’s love, which we will recognize resides in the heart.

  1. It’s interesting how often scientific research is confirming the heart as another “brain” and reinforcing our understanding of the really real via ACOL. The Global Consciousness Project similarly provides evidence of a connectedness to others that the ego mind blithely ignores.

  2. Beautiful. Yes, for those interested, I will be inviting those taking A Course of Love – or not – to spend a whole month attending to the heart. For more information, please consider joining the ‘A Course of Love – Australia’ Facebook Group found through a Search on Facebook.
