If you read my review for Ms.Shinn's other book "The Game of Life and How to Play It" her sequel "Your Word Is Your Wand" is just as riveting. This sequel hones in on the power of our words and how we can use them for goodwill or impediments in our life. Definitely worth taking note!

I initially purchased Autobiography of a Yogi in paperback. After reading, underlining, and highlighting points in the book that inspired me, I purchased the hardcover edition. In my view, Autobiography of a Yogi is a treasure. It's not for everyone as it is advanced spiritually; however, it is written for the common individual in simple language. In fact, anyone picking up this book to read simply out of curiosity will be inspired. The content is witty and intelligently written. If you are searching for answers to the mysteries of our existence, you will find that this book will satisfy your curiosity. 

Words and Thoughts Truly Come From the Heart

April 17, 2024



Have you ever wondered where the thoughts and feelings that pop-up in your consciousness throughout the day come from?


Well, guess what? Those words and thoughts come from your heart. Yes it's true. They literally come from your physical heart.


Your physical heart is a medium of thoughts and feelings. Have you ever heard the words "be careful what comes from the heart" or "they died of a broken heart." Our heart is not only created for our physical existence. The heart is a conduit of the Soul.


It took me quite some time to figure this out. The answer dawned on me intuitively after a great deal of pondering on the matter. I objectively listened to my thoughts and analyzed my feelings. Whether they were positive, negative, or absolutely bazaar I deeply wondered where they originated.


After the answer intuitively presented itself to me, I happened to discover the article "The Brain Myth: Your Intellect and Thoughts Originate in Your Heart, Not Your Brain." It confirmed my realization. The editorial explained in precise words what I innately understood.


Here's a preview of the content:


"Like a computer that contains a microprocessor that allows the computer to accomplish all of its various tasks, the idea that a human being also works like a computer with a brain that functions like a microprocessor, is something that almost all people raised in Western Culture assume is a fact.


But it is not a fact. It is a belief system.


And as a belief system, would it surprise you to learn that this is a fairly modern belief, and that historically it has not been the brain that has been considered the driving force in humans that allows them to think and reason, but that historically it has been the heart that is attributed to human consciousness, including our mind, speech, and thoughts?"

I can agree with this. In fact, what we're taught in western societies ignores the truths discovered by the sages 1000s of years ago. We're taught that everything is physical and there's no meta-physical explanation for anything. When actually, the term meta is a Greek prefix and means beyond i.e. metaphysics = beyond physics. This explains the delicate connection between our thoughts, words, and the heart.


Here's more from the article touching on the subject:


"What modern Western Culture does with its “scientific belief” that all “truth” is contained within the physical realm where it can be observed and cataloged, is completely ignore the spirit and soul of mankind, our non-physical and meta-physical components.


It is, therefore, this a priori belief that attributes consciousness, rational thought, reasoning, and the “mind” to that organ in our head, the brain, and not science itself.


But this belief in the function of human brains today is not the belief that most cultures held to for many thousands of years, including Greek and Roman culture, which were the pre-cursors to modern-day Western Culture."


The commentary also states that:


"What Western Culture’s academic thought has done for the past couple hundred years is reduce the importance of the heart, and attribute some of its function to the brain instead.

Today, academic teaching focuses on the “physical sciences,” as the traditional academic studies in the humanities and the arts has been degraded in value as compared to “science.”

The meaning of the word “science” in the English language has been redefined through the ages where today it has a very narrow meaning of primarily “medical science..


This narrow understanding of “science” or “knowledge,” which only looks at what can be observed in the physical world, is now equated with “truth,” and is considered by modern society to be more valuable than any other kind of knowledge.

It has become the religion of modern man.

However, science cannot prove anything! It can only collect data and form hypotheses from that data to produce “theories” as to what is true and what is not, and then these theories are continually tested as new data is discovered, and updated accordingly.


Scientific proof does NOT prove truth

I recall reading a piece some time ago about individuals who received heart transplants. As a result, they acquired certain traits of their heart donor. There's an interesting study about such instances titled Memory Transference In Organ Transplant Recipients. This simply proves that nothing is as it seems in the physical world and that scientific analysis, in all respects, is substantially limited.


Upon further reading the article states that:


"There is nothing in modern day science that disproves the ancient view that the heart is the center of our reasoning and mind, and not the brain.


In fact, if anything, there is scientific evidence that confirms the central place of our heart in our life.


This evidence comes from stories of people who receive heart transplants, and then find themselves thinking about and remembering things that the person who donated their heart experienced before they died, even though the recipient of the new heart never knew the donor."

I don't want to give away the entirety of the article. However, it's worth reading.


If you decide to click on the title (it's the first link in red) earnestly ponder its content. Think and introspect about your understanding of how your thoughts and feelings manifest. Then meditate on the topic.


Remember...we're not simply physical entities designed to be poked, pilled, and constantly diagnosed with a malady for every change in mood or physical condition. We're much more than that.. Pray and meditate in earnest and God will expose these secrets to you. Once you realize more of the truth about your existence, your life will become much healthier, happier, and peaceful.


Can I get an amen?
