From fear to love, from darkness to light and from separation to wholeness
The challenge for the 21st century is
The silent revolution of the heart.
It is not a revolution within an organization
or a land in the traditional sense with violence, madness
and blood shed. It is a revolution in human consciousness.
In society today there exists a deep split
between the inner and outer world, between intellect and intuition,
between male and female qualities, between rest and activity
and between outer knowledge and inner wisdom. There is a fast
technological development in the society, but we seem to forget the most important
factor: our self.
The 21st century means an inner awakening. It means a time to grow up. Many people
talk about spirituality, meditation and inner development, but it does not seem to
change their lives. Our spiritual development depends on our commitment to our own
development. We can use our free will to take on the challenge of life to grow or
we can choose not to grow. This is the freedom that life gives us, and it is our
own responsibility, but it seems that few people accept life’s challenge to grow.
The 21st century represents a choice between the separation of ego and the vision
of the heart. The silent revolution of the heart is a shift in human consciousness
from the short-sighted perspective of the ego of "me" and "mine"
to the focus of the heart on love and the needs of the other. It is a shift in consciousness
from the shortsighted separation of the ego and endless desires to the vision of
the heart of love, joy, belongingness, wisdom and wholeness. When we follow the way
of the ego, the path of desire, it leads to struggle, conflict, exhaustion and separation
from the Whole. The way of the heart is about learning to listen to our heart, to
our inner source of love, joy, truth and wisdom. It is to be in deep harmony with
When our heart is closed, it creates an isolated and lonely feeling with the attitude:
"Nobody loves me," "Nobody cares about me" and "Life is
a struggle," which makes us not see the love that is all around us.
It is when we open our heart
that we discover a sense of unity in love with other people,
with the trees, with nature, with the sea and with the sky.
This is the silent revolution of the heart.
The human heart is the solution
to the problems of the world.
The human heart contains all the answers.
The human heart has the capacity to expand
and embrace the whole earth.
