As a Psychologist in training, I wondered why people chose to say things as opening remarks. My own conclusion, at that time, was they took a chance to voice an idea in order to develop it in conversation to a point it became a belief. Then, I thought of this mental habit that often worked well. Yet, as you are aware from earlier posts, I talked about Heart to Heart communication. I now understand it as establishing a creative field. Therefore, I invite you to find out what this creative field is all about. The Heart to Heart connection actually creates a vibratory field, wherein two or more minds can reach into their individual spiritual reality. As mentioned in the post ‘Optimists are Inspiring!‘, we are all born with a Pioneering Spirit. This is what urges us to seek resonance or Heart to Heart connection, and it becomes a creative field.
This isn’t a matter of being so weak that we can’t make up our mind alone. It is a deeper impulse of our spirit, because we are all spiritual beings having a physical experience. Although this may seem to be a “come-down” for our human mind, it is a life-saving resource, especially in the more or less violent world, where we find ourselves. For couples, and many mutual friends, this is understood by their experience of some time. Whether or not we are aware of it, in our conscious minds, we feel drawn in by the comfort or camaraderie of the moment. Recently, this played out for me, in a gathering of Psychologists, in one room (having all being trained in Empathy). We sat comfortably considering a new theory being discussed by a presenter via a video presentation. I realized this was preferable to reading, even though the weather was bad enough to keep us all away.
Personally, I understood this “affinity” as I had been trained in Heart to Heart connection with other groups. This sense of affinity is already present in our Heart as mentioned in the last post on the Pioneering Spirit. Such a sense of affinity can be felt in groups gathering to refine their understanding of “spiritual beings in physical bodies.” They are drawn to explore it in such groups as the Riverdell Spiritual Centre and one can be assured that, if geography is a problem, people on this site can guide them to another convenient location.
Some may find this mysterious, but our Western society is experiencing a burgeoning of understanding of the word “Spiritual.” For so long, that word connoted, an organization or religion, which engendered fear of Hell and damnation, based on us all being “born in sin,” actually engendering another fear, that of being swept up with a loss of self-control and being restricted by some orthodoxy. For many years, I was careful in my tertiary teaching, not to use the word “spiritual” or even “transpersonal,” the latter is really a Heart to Heart connection. If that reality was to be examined, we could see that, without that connection, marriages would be unthinkable.
Beyond the burgeoning of understanding of the word “Spiritual,” we can observe many groups and organizations, such as Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) in California; all seeing the need to clean up the mass subconscious, as it has become polluted with another kind of proselytising, fear as a marketing tool and political weapon. Also, unfortunately, we can’t trust anyone, including ourselves! I delight in the name of Institute of Noetic Sciences (Noetic=Spiritual) & Sciences were not on speaking terms a few years ago! Perhaps, many would explain this change with the perspective of Quantum Physics etc..
