Dear Heart, I am writing you this letter to let you know that you are right. That no matter what we brains do in the world… it doesn’t seem to be enough. You’ve been telling me this for a very long time, but I was not willing to listen, because my ego was getting in the way. Perhaps it’s time you took the lead, and made the world a better place.
Once in awhile you would tell me “There is no way to force anyone to do anything” but I insisted that I (the brain) was more intelligent, and that I could make things work. But instead of healing all the wars in the world, I have create more wars. Perhaps you were right, maybe it’s time to use kindness, caring, and love to heal the world. One thing is for sure, my way has not worked down through the ages.
Thousands of years ago I thought I could end all starvation with great ideas. But now thousands die of starvation every day because my ego has gotten in the way. My thinking has lead to great frustration, anxiety, and even anger at times, and that’s has only made things worse. I thought your way of giving love to everyone was too simplistic, too pollyannaish to make a difference. Again I thought I could end all hunger and make things great and at the same time make a lot of money. But in the end… we became greedy, only thinking of themselves, which lead to even more challenges.
Your ideas of peace in every heart starting with the one we see in the mirror was a big turnoff for me, I thought it was childish. How could peace be created from prayer, meditation, and just being peaceful inside. Yet my ideas of trying to force people to be peaceful really haven’t worked. Maybe force is not the answer when it comes to all the intricate emotional attachments that make up human beings.
I thought I could force people to work together for the good of the planet. But in the end all I did was created deeper divisions that seem almost impossible to bring together. Perhaps you were right when you said, “Just help them, care for them, love them, and they will come around”. For sure God, the Universe, and the One and Only knows that my way of using force… has not worked.
I thought I could save the planet from ecological destruction, yet in the end only using my brain has brought about even bigger earthly challenges. And so far I’ve not found the glue that holds all the factions together. Maybe you were right when you said, “The strongest glue in the Universe is Love”. Love just might be the missing ingredient needed to make all this work.
Now we have taken what God, the Universe, and the One and Only has provided in the way of natural plants and animals and made drastic changes in their genetic makeup. I don’t know what will happen with all of this, I kind of got out of control. My thinking has out stripped my wisdom, and again ego has NOT allowed me to look into the future 7 generations like you suggested… to see what would be the final outcome. You kept telling me “We must keep things simple, and live natural lives in cooperation with Mother Earth” yet I was not listen.
Please help me, I hope it’s not too late. Things are really out of control now, I thought I could handle everything… and keep my ego intact. But I can see the hand writing on the wall, I have to wake up and see, that if I keep doing what I am doing, I will keep getting what I am getting. So I’ve done some deep reflection on all of this, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I can’t heal this world alone, I need your help. I’ve always needed your help, but I never wanted to admit that love is very powerful… more powerful than any kind of thinking. Finally I see that love is the answer, but I was blinded by my ego to the realities of the situation.
I’ve really messed up!
I am on bended knee with tears on my eyes asking for help.
Oh Heart, will you open yourself up to me again?
You always said:
“When you are ready I will be there to help, because I love you”.
Well now I am asking for your help,
And I really need your help.
I love you Heart…
