There is wisdom, magnetism and power in the heart..
It is heartfelt intent that generates change in people. It is the power of the heart that gives momentum to your chosen direction, and it is the intuitive intelligence of the heart that guides you on the way. — Doc Childre (Transforming Stress)
We learn how to meditate because there’s a deep desire in the heart that we long to re-discover and connect with. We meditate to discover ourselves and what we wish to be. And our heart’s wish is the best indication of who we are. — Puran Bair (Living from the Heart)
The heartbeat vibrates the entire body. The heart’s electro-magnetic field is far more powerful than the brain’s and sends messages from the heart to the brain encoded with emotion.
Why we meditate is because we seek to develop presence, courage and optimism.
Once the experience of meditation is recreated, you see that “this is the state I was once in. This is my own natural condition.” — Puran Bair (Living from the Heart 1998)
