This post is an excerpt from the dictation by Kuan Yin entitled The Heart’s Capacity for Love published in the 1988 Pearls of Wisdom Vol. 31 No. 61.
The capacity of the heart, then, is our consideration as we the members of the Karmic Board and hierarchs of Aquarius gather to consider how in every direction we might add unto the stature of the soul and the inner Buddha.
Upon the brow let the image of Amitabha appear. Sons and daughters of the Buddha are ye. Buddha, indeed the name of God given unto his Sons who have so realized the bodhi of his enlightenment.
Hearts constricted where the room is narrow and the expanse of consciousness is not cannot contain the mind of Buddha, for the foundation of that mind is compassion. The lessons of life so key are the lessons of divine love, human love. Loving oneself may be the beginning, beloved, but let us understand, one must first love the True Self in order to appreciate the expression of the soul in the process of becoming that Self. One loves as love is and as love does become, even as the seed contains the full flower.
It is the narrowness of Love’s expression, even in the field of religion itself, that therefore does so limit the individual’s chalice of the mind of God. This is the primary concern of the Lords of Karma this day. For given these confining cups of consciousness, we are not able to project upon the graph even of the immediate future a major change in world thought.
So convinced are the people that their leaders in Church and State can be trusted, that they are right, that they know more than they do, that they [the people] have ceased to meditate within their hearts. And their teachers do not teach them, of course, that they might learn all things from the inner voice. Thus, though they think they are wise, they repeat only clichés, only what someone else has said, and somehow by the very repetition [they believe] it is so.
There is not the ability to discern or to dissect thought. There is not the ability objectively to ponder knowledge, to determine if that knowledge is empirical, if it is the fruit of experience or if it is only belief with no support or undergirding from those who ought to be the acknowledged authorities.
Surely the authorities are the Ascended Masters and the Great Lights and revolutionaries who have carried the God Flame. But instead it is as though it were two and a half million years ago, four million years ago, and only lately had the quasi-brilliance of fallen angels put upon an ignorant humanity, a gullible child-man, fictitious rules, regulations, interpretations, all designed to achieve an end: manipulation of behavior, population, and subservience to a class of individuals who have called themselves gods and expect to be treated royally.
I am well aware that I am addressing this day those who have come out of the grips of these very ones who have bound you for aeons. With you, then, we may proceed along the lines of independent thought. I am also well aware that I speak to those who have developed a heart flame, who have sensitivity to higher vibration, who know the difference between the vibration of a flying saucer and the living Gautama Buddha, those who understand the path of metallic mechanization man throughout the universes and those who understand a path of discipleship that does lead unto that internalization of the God Flame. Few there be such as yourselves.
So note and so understand that with the getting of the understanding, there must be a corresponding confirmation by the inner experience of the heart. There is a mistaken idea, beloved, that the heart is always true, that the heart always knows. The heart is simply another organ and means of expression, and the heart chakra has also been polluted. Thus, you see, those momentums of human sympathy that are not the essence of the nectar of the divine compassion do lead one astray into incorrect decisions.
Thus, one must call for the purification of the heart and do so diligently. And in the very next service that does provide opportunity we so desire to participate with you in Saint Germain’s second heart meditation. For, beloved, out of the heart are the issues of life.
