Openheartedness is one of the most easily recognizable somatic markers of inner knowing.
.
.
The heart is a highly sensitive center of feeling and knowing.
.
.
It has many levels and remarkable depth. It is our most intimate area, the one we are quickest to protect.
.
.
We often touch ourselves in the heart area when we are referring to ourselves or when we are feeling close to another.
.
.
When the heart area is open, there is a subtle sense of warmth, expansion, sweetness, and aliveness.
.
.
We feel loving and connected.
.
.
A different quality of knowing emerges, one that is spontaneous, direct, and unconcerned with outcomes.
.
.
Our willingness to not know, to not rely on our ordinary thinking mind for guidance, and to let attention rest in the heart area opens up a door to a different way of knowing.
.
.
As we do so, we become much more accepting and compassionate with ourselves and others.
