The sky darkened and the clouds threatened showers and snow and tire miring mud, so I fled the vast grassland outside the little artsy town of Patagonia. Downward in elevation and southward in direction I moved to Nogales for the warmth of its coffeeshops and the safety of its firm modern pavement. To the van dweller, anywhere can be called home.
Some may have been disheartened by yesterday’s post, “Must I risk my relationships in this pursuit of enlightenment?”
No, not at all. Yesterday’s post had grown too long for the attention span of most internet users, so I cut it short. The Map is just the route that I stumbled blindly through, but there is another path—probably a more efficient path at that: The Path of the Heart.
On the Path of the Heart, you travel through the same levels, but just in a different order. The first four are the same:
- The Mortal
- The Ego
- The Shadow
- The Soul
But here you divert, opening your Heart before your Mind:
There are two big advantages to the Path of the Heart:
- You save the hardest level (the Witness) until you absolutely need it.
- Your heart opens much sooner. Enlightenment (the Witness) isn’t required for you and your loved ones to reap the benefits of capital-L Love awakening in and moving through you.
The Mind—the Ego—wants enlightenment because it sees it as the best, the highest, the ultimate… but the Heart (ahh the Heart), all the Heart wants is to love.
