The Wisdom of Your Heart

Storrie Lake SP, NM—From Nonduality Highlights:

At the end of the talk someone from the audience asked the Dalai Lama, “Why didn’t you fight back against the Chinese?” The Dalai Lama looked down, swung his feet just a bit, then looked back up at us and said with a gentle smile, “Well, war is obsolete, you know.” Then, after a few moments, his face grave, he said, “Of course the mind can rationalize fighting back… but the heart, the heart would never understand. Then you would be divided in yourself, the heart and the mind, and the war would be inside you.”

But the heart, the heart would never understand.

If your heart doesn’t say “Yes,” then just say “No.”

You don’t need to ponder it, or beat yourself up, or second guess yourself.

If asked to explain, just say, “My heart says ‘No.'”

Who could argue with that?

  1. Same goes for “My heart says ‘Yes.'”

    Which sometimes leaves my friends looking at me and scratching their heads wondering what I’m on 🙂

  2. It certainly is beautiful thinking, isn’t it?

    I’ve not learned enough about “The Universe” or “She” to know how this concept is inter-woven into my life-code, but I do know this: When I am true and exude truth, the painful people fall out of my life and the creative people ENTER my life…to fight, is to approach conflict by THEIR rules!

    The worst case scenario: I lose my “life”, and wake up in a fresh, new realm…which I’m DANG excited about seeing!

    Keep going, Wayne. The World is changing, because of you.

  3. My heart is too emotional to trust. It is said that wisdom and compassion are two sides of the same coin. Compassion on the spirital level brings wisdom; the two arise mutually, so I have read, and as Wayne always says, you have to live it to know it, so that it will come naturally, not falsely.
    Perhaps a better answer might be along the lines of; that as a Buddhist you live/reside within not tied to any artificial geographic location. You always end up where you’re meant to be. The impermanence of life.

  4. Of course the mind can rationalize fighting back… but the heart, the heart would never understand.

    If Jesus had this quote to use people would understand “turn the other cheek” better

  5. I just shared on my blog how hard it is for me to say “no.” I also recently moved to a neighbor”hood” that has a lot of crime, drugs and fighting. I get to practice daily living in spiritual observance. When my heart and mind are in sync, I live in such great peace and joy. Why is that so hard for me to do?!? I am looking forward to my 6-month social sabbatical. I suspect I will learn and grow a lot in the ensuing months.

    I love, love, love this post. I also loved reading the comments for this post. Thanks everyone!
