How to Live from Your Heart

Daily Insight from the Story of The Little Prince

When we approach life from consciousness instead of from the way we’ve been programmed from childhood up, we become increasingly deep feeling individuals.

How can we not feel deeply, given that we are expressions of divine love?

The very nature of consciousness is an awareness that enables us to do the loving thing.

The story of the Little Prince has introduced us to the concept of “matters of consequence.” Those things which are of consequence are matters that flow from the heart, and therefore involve love, which produces deep feeling and often strong emotion.

Because the little prince feels a powerful connection with the flower he loves on his planet, the idea that her safety wouldn’t be of the utmost consequence horrifies him. As a result he becomes angry, his face “white with rage.”

Flooded with emotion, which is flowing from deep connection, the little prince is powerfully moved and yet not at all reactive.

The feeling of the heart is poles apart from the reactive emotion of the reptilian part of the brain. Reactivity divides and separates people, whereas feeling flowing from the heart invites us to know each other in a more closely connected way.

The difference between the two is illustrated by the little prince’s encounter with a businessman on one of the planets he visited on his journey to Earth. This gentleman is totally out of touch with anything of consequence, such as a flower and its scent, the stars at night, or love for another human being.

All he’s concerned about is money.

The businessman thinks he’s concerned with a matter of consequence, of course, which inflates his ego because it makes him feel important.

The little prince doesn’t see the businessman as a human being. He sees him as a mushroom!

Mushrooms can appear overnight and have huge heads, a symbol of the ego. However, in terms of the imagery of this story, they have little substance. The businessman is unaware that he has a heart, a caring center that can feel.

It’s a pretty good image of how business so often operates today, especially what led to the current economic crisis, with some getting rich during this crisis while others lose their job and home.

What’s truly important in life is to live from the heart. Whatever comes from the heart is a matter of consequence.

When something comes from the head, the product of thought, we are wise to sit in stillness until our thoughts quiet down and we can feel our heart instead of hearing our thoughts.

But I want to emphasize, as I have often in the past in these blogs, that the heart is very different from emotional reactivity. It’s the deep current of being.

The feeling we experience flows from our essence, which is very different from an emotional whim that’s triggered in the reptilian brain.

We are talking about feeling that’s an authentic expression of divine love, which takes many forms when it comes to emotional expression. But none of it is reactive, egoic, or alienating.

I have a bit of an eclectic collection of electronics. One of my favorites is the Roku SoundBridge. It plays Internet radio stations, like SomaFM’s Groove Salad, through my home theater receiver. I like this model for its industrial design, selection of outputs and the display. I’m also a big fan of the Roku Netflix Player.

After looking at this picture I realize I need to clean my electronics a bit more frequently.

Tips For Traveling With Pets From Honda in Baltimore

Each year millions of drivers hit the open road, traveling to destinations across the country. Riding alongside many of these drivers is their much beloved pet. Traveling with your pet can be a fun experience for everyone, however there are certain safety measures that should be in place to ensure road trips end safely and with everyone in one piece. The folks at Honda in Baltimoreknow how much we love our family pets and offer the following tips for people traveling with their pets.

Identification tags- Before you leave your driveway, Maryland Honda recommends you make sure traveling pets have the proper tags for identification, vaccines and license. There are dozens of ways in which an animal can become lost while traveling. Identification tags can help reunite missing pets with their owners. Proof of vaccination can also thwart potential problems if your pet is involved in a biting incident.

Only drivers behind the wheel- Who hasn’t witnessed an individual driving with their pet on their lap? It is not an uncommon sight, however it is a dangerous one. It doesn’t matter how calm or predictable you think your pet is, they are still an animal. Animals react instinctively making it impossible to know with a certainty how they will behave. Pets riding in the laps of drivers are simply a distraction and potential hazard under certain conditions. For the safety of the pet and other occupants of the vehicle, invest in a pet carrier or pet harness to properly secure your animal.

Restrain your pets- For the safety of pets, family member and strangers, always have your pet properly restrained. Always attach a leash before getting out of the car and wait until all doors are closed before unleashing a pet. Baltimore Honda dealers remind drivers that animals not properly restrained have an increased risk of getting lost, hit by a car or involved in an incident with strangers. The most mild mannered pooch can get aggressive if they feel threatened in a strange environment. By making sure your animal is under your control at all times, you guarantee their safety and the safety of others.
