A beating heart

Why do we associate love and compassion with the heart? It may go without saying that when we say heart, we do not literarily mean the biological organ made of tissue and blood. Rather, we refer to a sort of a seat, an encasement for something entirely different. I am not an expert in all things astral, thus I can only speak to what I feel. And what I sense is energy.

It seems to me that on an energetic level, the object we refer to as heart, acts as an oscillator; a frequency generator. It produces a sound whose pitch varies with our heartbeat’s changing pace. This sound can be of low frequency and very calming; or of higher pitch and all excited. It can be weak and shallow, or powerful and deep. It resonates within us and all around us. It is an ancient sound that connects us all, humans, animals, inanimate objects, our environment, our planet and the entire universe.

Most of the time we fail to hear it; all we notice, at best, is “beep, beep, beep;” or “thump, thump, thump.” But if we take a moment to listen to the pulse, not as individual strikes but rather as a continuum of one sound; listen not with our ears but with our deeper, most ancient awareness, the voice we may hear is… Om…

Learned from: listening.
