Daily Meditation Focus 9SEP2009

The Role of the Heart images

Today our meditation will focus on the heart. While this subject could easily fill volumes, we will concern ourselves with a reduced scope and keep it simple. In regards to

esoteric anatomy, the body is seen as a analogue to the universe and our solar system. Mankind reflected within the Cosmos; the human body is the anthropocosm of Pythagoras which acts as a conduit between heaven and earth to receive the Song of the Cosmos. One an octave of another and in tune with each other. Just as Pythagoras envisioned each of the 12 influencing zodiac houses images-2resonating 12 unique tones (the heart chakra is described as having 12 undulations) to be received by the Earth and transmitted to mankind, an Egyptian principle emphasizes the Sun’s role in establishing an ever evolving rhythm for the Earth which is resonated in the human heart. The heart is referred to as the Inner Sun (glowing golden color of the heart chakra). We experience the world through resonance, through vibration. Color, sound, heat, even the manifest physical reality around us are expressions of vibration and resonance.

As we express emotion, particularly love, it emanates from the heart as does ego-less emotions such as compassion, understanding, generosity; all traits which by nature, give or provide for some function lacking in others. In regards to our journey on the path and seeing the physical experience as a mystical adventure, what is the role of heart in meditation and how does our meditation benefit others?
