The Depths Of Your Heart

The depths of your heart can be a pretty pure place to go.

I used to think it was a place of intense confusion and where the past lived, but I’ve come to find that it’s really a place of purity. These emotions that I feel inside have been claimed to be intense and for some reason I have experienced some sort of negativity in this word. Maybe it’s the way I am taking it? Maybe it’s the way that I interpret that word? Nonetheless, I am starting to find that this emotional intensity about life is actually simplicity manifesting itself. I’m hooking up and linking into the purity of some of these emotions that I have never fully experienced before.

Maybe that’s the sentence right there – fully experiencing emotions.


When we shut ourselves off from experiencing negative emotions we also shut ourselves off from experiencing the wide array of positive ones as well. The depths of your heart can be a place where you can go to understand the truths about yourself rather than a place that you have to be scared of. I think we are scared of this place because we have experienced how wild and intense some of these emotions we go through are and that scares the hell out of us. For whatever reason, we are taught to keep a lid on ourselves and not stray too far outside of the middle because that’s the safe place to play. No, I would rather climb dangerous trees and travel into unknown lands than play it safe. That game is not for me.

The depths of your heart can be a place where you go to understand the intricacies and mysteries of this life.

There are so many things that we do not understand about what is going on in this world simply because we cannot see them. Sometimes, you have to run on faith. You have to be willing to put your feet forward one after the next straight into the dense fog and function on faith. Will it be scary? You can bet your money on it. Will it be worth it? Oh absolutely.

Time and time again you must travel into the depths of your heart to find your true self and begin to function in a way that is truly connected and present with the world.

If you can do that, there’s no cap on what you will become.

    So true, the seat of your soul is the solar plexus, which is located next to the heart. To explore your heart and your innermost feelings is the most profound search possible.

      thank you for that comment! Such great insight. I won’t forget “the seat of your soul is the solar plexus” so darn cool.

    I think the whole post was profoundly true. I did, however, really like the part about experiencing the negative in order to experience the positive. Experiencing and allowing oneself to explore the negative is one path to spiritual growth, and when one grows in spirit, the positive becomes more manifest in our lives.

      yes yes! our dark side helps us connect to our love just as much as the positive side. That is something it took me a really really long time to understand.

    My two cents! We are body, soul and spirit beings. If the three are not connected to each other and God, we are walking wounded, inflicting pain on ourselves and those we are in relationship with. Our soul is our heart, mind and intentions/motivation/will. When our heart is broken open by pain, suffering or heart-break in relationship, the Light of God can enter, I went through the depths of pain stored in my heart by not avoiding the pain, but going into it and letting all the feelings, images and distorted thoughts come to the surface where the Son of consciousness, the pure Awareness of God melts it, dissolves it like a mist in full sun. When the Spirit and Fire of God fall upon you, your heart is washed, regenerated in the Spirit and the Fire burns all the dross leaving pure gold. Heartbreak breaks the heart open if you don’t put a wall around it to armor and defend. Heartbreak can circumcise the heart and the Light of God can dissolve the darkness. The only way to love without causing harm is with an open heart. If your heart is not opened, purified, refined and filled with Real Love from God, the heart is cut off from your genitals and “loving harder with pleasure and pain” as the video purports, causes soul wounds. The music industry is promoting soul wounding sex. It has nothing to do with Real Love; it has everything to do with egoic dominance and lust that leads to a very unhealthy society, as well as a lot of heart break.
