THE HEART IS MUCH MORE THAN A PUMP !!!


The Institute of HeartMath (http://www.heartmath.org) shares fascinating understandings of the human heart as explored in more than 20 years of its research. The 'Did you know' facts are lesser-known gems of information to enlighten curiosity on how your own thoughts and emotions are affecting yourself and others.

HeartMath Research Director Rollin McCraty, Ph.D., says, "It's important to take a pause and really consider what our emotions are contributing to our environment and to other people. Our research and its applications can help people create a positive emotion-based environment that has real effects on physiology."

McCraty said that the true nature of human emotion is one of care and love. He said HeartMath and other research shows that by focusing on these core heart-felt emotions, it can enhance one's connection with others, and that this connection extends far beyond the individual.

What Is The Heart ??
From the book The Fourfold Path to Healing I learned that Rudolf Steiner made quite a statement in his latter years. When a student asked him what was needed in order for the proper development of humanity to occur in the future, he replied that mankind must meet the following conditions:
1) He must understand that there is no difference between motor and sensory nerves.
2) He must no longer work for money.
3) He must understand that the heart is not a pump.
The rest of chapter 3 is devoted to explaining the third statement.

One excerpt: 
"One final point: the heart does not pump - what it does is listen. This amazing organ senses what is in the blood and then calls forth the necessary hormones so that homeostasis is maintained and the cells can function optimally. The heart serves the cells not by pushing blood towards them but by balancing and integrating the blood's chemistry. In fact, Steiner suggested that the heart also senses and integrates our thoughts, our emotions and our will to carry out tasks. The heart, then, is not a mechanical pump, but actually a sensitive integrator of all our experience.
But there is even more to this story, a fact well-known to poets throughout the ages and to the ancient cultures that viewed the Earth as the center of the universe, for the heart lies between Venus (the venous system) and Mars (the arterial system, named after Ares or Mars), the namesakes of the basic male and female impulses. The heart, therefore, is the mediator between our male and female aspects, our anima and animus. In fact, the heart has a monumental task, acting as a kind or tireless therapist - integrating, sorting and processing all of our impressions, trying to create harmony and rhythm out of all that happens in our lives. It is no wonder that poets and sages have sung the praises of this indefatigable friend and clearly located the emotion of love in our hearts."
This book has been written by Dr. Thomas Cowan - you would probably find his website helpful. Another two videos that further explains the power of the heart:
