Why do we suppose so much is written about the heart? Archangel Michael said to me on two occasions:
Archangel Michael: So there is forward thrust and movement into this higher-dimensional understanding of who you are. And, yes, it begins and it ends with – it always comes back to – the heart. You know this. (1)
Steve: The heart is another one of those things that is very difficult to define or understand or communicate.
Archangel Michael: But you will keep trying.
Steve: I know – I’ll write a thousand words – and keep trying.
AAM: Because it is the essential work. It is the essential message for humans to truly come to understand who they are. (2)
Yes, it truly is. And so I spill more ink on the subject of the heart, knowing that next week I’ll do it all again.
All we really seek in life is contained in the treasure chest that the heart is.
A treasure was buried in the field of the heart. What is it? Abide for any amount of time in any of the divine qualities of love and you know right away what the ultimate treasure of life is. Call it love; call it by the name of one of its divine forms – bliss, joy, peace, etc.
It turns out that all we ever wanted was to feel the flow of this tranforming love inside us, causing us to blossom.
Ordinary love is like Tang compared to the freshly-squeezed, real Florida orange juice of higher-dimensional love.
While we’re in the space of it, nothing else matters. We’re at the top of the pyramid of life. We’ve achieved all that’s worthwhile. Everything has contributed to this moment.
Experience higher-dimensional love for any length of time and all our questions disappear. All our concerns are swept away. All our fears vanish.
In the space we then occupy, it becomes immediately apparent why the Buddha would recommend giving up kingdoms in three dimensions for it.
Eckhart Tolle represented it as the gold in the box the beggar was sitting on (i.e., the heart). (3) For sure it makes the world go round and it turns out to be all we’ve ever wanted.
Feel the best you can feel right now. Feel inspired. Feel blessed. Feel innocent. Now multiply that by 100 and you approach what higher-dimensional love feels like. You have to have had a breakthrough of some sort to feel it – a strong realization, transformational moment, peak experience, or heart opening.
There I go with another pot of ink. But you can’t stop thinking about it or talking about it once you’ve spent some time in it.
Matthew Ward once said: “Your heart [is] the seat of the soul.” (4) Now that is an entirely different matter. I’ll spill a pot of ink on that one soon as well.

(3) A beggar had been sitting by the side of a road for over thirty years. One day a stranger walked by. “Spare some change?” mumbled the beggar, mechanically holding out his old baseball cap.
“I have nothing to give you,” said the stranger. Then he asked: “What’s that you are sitting on?”
“Nothing,” replied the beggar. “Just an old box. I have been sitting on it for as long as I can remember.”
“Ever looked inside?” asked the stranger.
“No,” said the beggar. “What’s the point? There’s nothing in there.”
“Have a look inside,” insisted the stranger.
The beggar managed to pry open the lid. With astonishment, disbelief, and elation, he saw that the box was filled with gold. (Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now. Downloaded from https://www.inner-growth.info/power_of_now_tolle/eckhart_tolle_chapter1.htm)
