INFINITE HEART

In the space of the heart,
my little self diminishes,
making room for the presence of the Divine Self
in all its perfection and infinity.

The spiritual teacher, White Eagle, has spoken many times about the importance of the human and spiritual heart. Such profound ideas are meant to move us into a contemplative space, which will take us much deeper into the mystical nature of the heart. Spiritual consciousness eventually opens as we devote more and more time to meditative stillness and the silencing of the overly active earthly mind. White Eagle tells us that the “higher worlds” are contacted “through your heart center,” what he refers to as “the mind in the heart.” It is the Divine Mind or Intelligence, secreted within our being.

Thus, when we are emptied and quietly receptive, we prepare ourselves for an audience with Spirit and divine impartations of truth and love. In such moments of Grace, we may receive guidance that answers a current issue, wisdom in the form of words from a well-known spiritual verse, confidence and power that significantly exceeds our everyday self, or a flash of illumination that remains with us for hours—even days. The peace we feel is the effect.

We have touched the place in our consciousness where nothing is missing, and therefore, everything is already present. Our waiting—in the sanctuary of our heart—is known, and whatever the worldly requirement, it is fulfilled in the perfect manner at an ideal time. Recollect your own past moments when exactly what you most needed appeared, as if precisely scheduled.

This particular teaching of White Eagle struck me both as soul food for the long-term nourishment of my inner being and as one of his many pearl offerings of great price:

The heart centre contains seven divisions; each centre in the heart has its keynote or sounding note on every plane of life. …In your heart is the sounding note of earth; in your heart is the sounding note of the astral plane, the lower mental, the higher mental, the intuitional, the celestial and the Divine Christ Plane.

…You cannot go far wrong, then, if you turn to the inner lodge, the heart lodge, and obey the Master presiding in that lodge…. And the sounding note is love … all love … all love….1

Only within the consciousness represented by these higher levels of our Heart Self does Spirit converse directly with our spirit. On this elevated playing field “spirit meets spirit,” because our five material senses are supplanted by our more finely tuned spiritual senses—the only faculties that possess the appropriate “note” on which to commune with the inner dimension.

In another talk, White Eagle gives this remarkable image as encouragement on our evolutionary Path of unfoldment: “God has provided you with certain powers — shall we say a built-in microphone in your heart? — through which you can communicate and a speaker in your heart through which you can listen to the sounds of a higher etheric level.”2

Only as we are tranquil and still can we rise to enter the “secret place of the most High,” otherwise known as the “holy of Holies.” In this restful place of absolute harmony, our microphone and speaker await. Every corner of the Universe, all levels of life are reachable within our infinite heart. Every thing is already provided when we are intimate with our heart. In this state of Oneness, Divinity joyfully reveals Itself.

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up… To more than I can be.

…There is no life – no life without its hunger;
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.

…You raise me up… To more than I can be.
“You Raise Me Up,” song lyrics by Brendan Graham
