Tweet An Excerpt taken from “HeartSourcing: Finding Our Way to Love and Liberation” by Ramgirir Braun, Ph.D. “Maharajji said, “The best way to worship God is every way.” We find devotion equally in the dance of the Sufis, the stirring psalms of the Jews, the powerful ceremonies of indigenous peoples, the sacraments of the Christians, [...]

The Liberating Power of the Heart Essence

October 23, 2014 1 comment

Tweet This past week it has become increasingly clear to me that we have direct access to the pure essence of the heart. It is a feeling, a sensation we can become aware of by stilling the mind and directing our awareness to the heart center (in the middle of the chest). People use different [...]

Stillness in Action

October 8, 2014 No comments yet

Tweet There is formal meditation and stillness in action. Meditation is a core skill; if we make it a daily habit, it will soon be a constant source of rejuvenation and peace. Before long we won’t want to miss even a single day of our practice. But to practice stillness, one doesn’t necessarily have to [...]

THAT Which Can Truly Fulfill You

October 16, 2013 1 comment

Tweet You are made to fall in love, because in your innermost core that’s what you are: pure, unconditional love. We are all made to fall in love and we do. We fall in love with humans and with divine beings – and while the essence of love is the same, the outcome is usually [...]

Using a Mantra in HeartSourcing Yoga

August 1, 2013 3 comments

Tweet When you have turned your attention inward to the Cave of the Heart, you can begin to taste the nectar of unconditional love. It may come as a subtle sensation first, in fits and spurts, seeping through the gaps in the armoring of your Heart. As your awareness of this internal Source deepens, the [...]

The Inability to Love

Tweet Q&A > Question: ”I am completely out of touch with my feelings, specially Love. I have been doing much spiritual practices for the last 3 years and the one thing I can’t grow is Love. My heart is practically dead. I fear that if I love, nobody will love me… like what happened to me before… I [...]

The Four Types of Silence

August 14, 2012 1 comment

Tweet Our thoughts are almost continuously restless. This is the nature of the thinking mind. It is seeking, restlessly, for relief from its self-created tensions, for its essential enlightenment, for the peace of the heart. This seeking is in itself a sign of our coming awakening. Behind the stream of thoughts, our inborn intuitive intelligence, [...]

Making Peace a Reality

July 11, 2012 1 comment

Tweet Every so often we can taste a moment of freedom from worry, inner anxiety, depression, and fear—and we know somehow that we could live like that all the time.

Tweet When we speak of the mind, we mean many things. There is the thinking mind with its constant stream of attachments and worries. We are all very familiar with that. But there is also the higher mind, the mind of intuition, which sometimes has been called “the still, clear voice within the heart.” This [...]

Finding the Heart of a Warrior

April 3, 2012 4 comments

Tweet It is early in the morning and I sit in meditation, trying to find the elusive heart. Like clouds of fog, thoughts move by, shrouding my search. I sit still. I wonder, why does it seem so difficult to get to the core of our being, the heart of the matter, to find the [...]

“I Have to Do what my Parents Want”

March 7, 2012 No comments yet

Tweet Your parents have pure love for you in the depth of their heart. Of course their personalities may not always be aware of that. Unconditional love is easily forgotten and replaced by manipulation or even coercion: “We want you to be different from the way you are (—or we won’t love you).” All of [...]

Making Friends with Your Ego

January 16, 2012 8 comments

Tweet The ego is confusing. It’s not your enemy. And you already know that very often it isn’t your friend. It can cause a lot of trouble. If you have too much of it, you may be blind to it—while it’s obvious to everyone else. If you have too little, you can’t function in this [...]

Tweet “As the pace of our lives continues to be accelerated by a host of forces seemingly beyond our control, more and more of us are finding ourselves drawn to engage in meditation, in this radical act of being., this radical act of love, astonishing as that may seem given the materialistic ‘can do’, speed-obsessed, [...]
