Jogyata Dallas talks about the value of meditation on the heart. He explains how meditating on the heart allows us to bypass the busy and mind and start to feel the inner silence and stillness where the finite begins to connect to the infinite.
“But the mind that you are using right now is the physical, earth-bound mind. Its capacity is very limited; but in spite of that it constantly judges you and others. The mind is always eager to suspect others. It feels that suspicion is the greatest wisdom. It feels that its doubting capacity is the greatest achievement. If the mind suspects or doubts, then it feels that it is doing something very great and significant. Naturally, very often you see that its judgements are totally wrong, because the mind’s judgements are based on its preconceived ideas and prejudices. But the heart is all love, all oneness, all spontaneity.”
