#83 – The intelligence of the heart

The intelligence of the heart. This may well not be as much of a metaphor as first appears. The heart itself, the body, is an intelligence – or an entelechy – unto itself.

It is possible to sink into a more intimate and vital awareness of the body, such that one’s very life-force becomes palpable… the gravity of each heartbeat, laboured and real for the first time.

Communion with the body-entelechy, this is the true aim of yogic practice. Parity with the prime stratum of consciousness that is the animal state.

The body-entelechy is a 1:1 of the intelligence, the entelechy. Therein wisdom, therein the knot of ‘being’ – of being here, being a person – unravels.
