How do we become a Heart based society?

How do we can overcome the negativity, division and strife between us as individuals, neighbors and cultures?  The key is in our hearts.  After many hours of meditation and contemplation, I have come to the conclusion that our society must evolve into a heart based society. We must learn to live in our hearts and love each other.  And we must live that love through our actions. Everything must start with the individual. When we take personal responsibility for how we interact with the world, it changes us as well as those we interact with. 

A tool to help stay focused in your heart came to me in the form of a question:  Do you allow your mind tell your heart what to feel or do you let your heart tell your mind what to think?  

It is a pretty important question because it determines what kind of world we live in. Only you can answer that question for any given circumstance in your life.  It is a question we should be asking ourselves every day about all of our decisions, not just about relationships.  In our work and all our interactions with the world, 

Love is the most powerful force in all of existence.  The ability to love is the birthright of every human being.  Love starts wars and ends wars.  Love creates life and destroys life.  When humanity wakes up and begins to respect this awesome power that we have, the earth will be transformed into paradise.




  1. Heart and head need to cooperate, while its fun to be head over heals in love, its a narcotic that wears off.

    1. Cooperate yes, but from where do you lead your life?

      Infatuations are a narcotic that wears off, true love is eternal.

    2. Little Lord Love

      Little Lord Love, he with the arrows,
      has definitely shot the last one
      with my name on it
      straight to the heart
      now, when I am no longer young
      and it's not easy to stay up half the night
      talking and so on.

      Little Lord, frolicsome boy,
      why did you wait until now?

    3. That's the problem with "eros", I'll take "charitos" anytime.

  2. I really like what you say here, Edward. Love is a powerful force. In my personal maturity I've also learned that love means never having to say you're sorry. Mindfulness is a key component in knowing love. Thanks for this great blog. Happy New Year, Edward.
