‘Coming from the heart’ is a denial of oneness

Updated December 31, 2021

Someone in Spain recently had the heart replaced by the above heart made of plastic. In other words, a heart is not you, but solely a mechanic thing you have to pump the blood around. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The heart is not you. That is why it is called your heart. It is a tool needed for pumping blood around the body to supply its cells with oxygen. In other words, coming from the heart merely means going with oxygen. Since this is a purely mechanical thing, the heart, nowadays, can be replaced with plastic like in the above image.

It seems to be a common belief that to be spiritual, you must come from the heart and manifest that as part of something bigger by joining a group of like-minded ones.

Unfortunately, most of these groups of supposedly warm-hearted people do not tolerate ways of expression that their guru does not endorse, so if you do not follow the dress code, for example, you are excluded. And you will probably also be excluded if you are very organised, have a clear head and tend to follow plans instead of spacing out and hugging everybody in the group.

However, not following plans does not seem to be a problem for most who believe in coming from the heart. They have such a need to be unique and independent that it is impossible to commit to a plan, least of all to the conventional rules of society.

Most who feel limited by the world are often restricted by their own rules of how to be in the now, come from the heart and whatnot. They deny this by projecting their control onto the world. Therefore, since the world seems to have caused their feeling of imprisonment, they conclude they will be  free when the rules of the world have been changed.

That is why rules must be changed into something that suits their needs. However, they hide this selfishness behind lots of hugs and talk about unity when they meet in chaotic events, often advertised very confusingly because they think clarity and direction restrict the heart.

All experiences are fabricated in the brain, regardless where they are perceived to come from or if they seem to be spiritual or mundane. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The heart is a muscle from where blood transports oxygen to the cells of the body. If you also have an experience of something spiritual coming from it, you are deceiving yourself, because, as science discovered more than 200 years ago, all experiences comes from the brain, since they are fabricated there. See also the article All experiences are equally unreal.

Since intuition and spontaneity can be said to be part of non-duality, those claiming to come from the heart seem to be in touch with non-duality. But as being factual and planning has been excluded for them to appear intuitive and spontaneous, they do not come from the inclusiveness of non-duality but the exclusiveness of duality.

In other words, non-duality is as intuitive and spontaneous as it is factual and planned. In other words, non-duality is as intuitive and spontaneous as it is factual and planned. And since coming from the heart is based on excluding the latter, it has nothing to do with non-duality. Therefore, if you believe in coming from the heart, you are not more spiritual and full of compassion than others. Especially because your belief is based on separation. So is sending love, healing and whatnot to those interpreted as having less than you.

In a world of duality that which is you seems to be separated into two opposing parts, one as someone definitive and another one as multiple appearances outside of it.

But the concept of coming from the heart is misleading for both parts, because it implies there is a way to unite them, whereas it actually increases the belief in separation, since there would be no idea of union without this belief.

Hence your apparent good deeds and attempts to make a difference are just a disguise for using separation to make you appear better than others.

If you claim to come from the heart, it is difficult to have the belief in duality undone, because it must be undone where it is constructed, namely in the brain. The graphic is grabbed from the web.

The experience of a tangible and dimensional world is a fabrication carried out by the brain – including the experience of spirituality, coming from the heart, living in the now and whatnot.

It can be compared to the experience you have when using a virtual reality headset. It feels like being in a real world. Yet nothing is real and all choices are preprogrammed – except how to perceive it, which is what determines, whether you believe to be there or not.

If you really want to make a difference, stop perceiving the apparent difference between you and others to make a difference. You can do that by totally including one side of a contrast – for example, chaos or order. This inclusion cancels out the apparent discrepancy between the opposing sides. Since this momentarily rubs off on others contrasts, there is no separation to perceive. Therefore, since the foundation for the belief in being someone definitive falls apart, you are in a state of not-knowing.

It is not easy to undo a belief, that you are not aware of. So if you want to undo the belief in duality, do not try to escape it by following rosy ideas like coming from the heart. Instead, include the apparent ugliness of duality as well as its beauty. Hence there is no contrast to define a world of duality and therefore nothing to hide, there never was or will be anything but non-duality.

However, not excluding but including does not work if you believe in coming from the heart because this is not where exclusion is executed. Nevertheless, the idea of coming from the heart is not a hindrance when included where it is conceived, namely in the brain.

You neither come from the heart or the brain but nowhere. The animation is grabbed from Ello.

Those who want to come from the heart instead of the brain have a point because coming from the brain is confusing. But, unfortunately, so is coming from the heart.

It is impossible to come from anywhere at all since that which is you is no different from that which is One, and it requires more than one to come from somewhere – or to be someone. That is why insecurity is the price of believing to be someone at all.

Be aware that this is spoken from the perspective of that which is One, and since it requires more than one to read this, you believe to be in a world where there seems to be more than one. In other words, you better relate to where you believe to be if you want to have this belief undone. Since the experiences the brain processes is used to confirm this belief, it is in the brain a correction must be made.

You already correct lots of deceitful experiences made by the brain. For example, when the Earth is seen flat, you adjust this experience to reflect the Earth is round. But since the world, according to science, consists of empty space, the experience of a substantial world is fake. When this is corrected, there does not appear to be something definable hiding the formlessness of oneness. Read more about this in The closer you look, the less you believe what you see is real.
