It is difficult to say with any certainty where the notion of "an opening heart" originates, but it exists in all cultures. What gives rise to the equation that somehow the heart is the source of caring and emotion is also somewhat of a mystery. However, there is no mystery when it comes to knowing what is meant by a "broken heart" or "opening our hearts."
Many people nowadays think of mind power as some force that exerts itself in inner and outer ways as with self-discipline or in some psychic manner. For me, after over a quarter of cenury studying mind, motivation and behavior, mind power is simply the starting point or ignition for "heart power." As with our thought of this month, "a change of heart is a change of mind."
Many believe that self-help and self-improvement is about rags to riches, failure to success, and so forth, when indeed it is the beginning of journey into self-discovery. Inside every human being is an eternal truth and a life purpose. Using our mind power is simply starting the engine on that journey of self-discovery and highest self-actualization.
An enlightened mind is an open heart. An open heart is warm, understanding, loving, forgiving, compassionate and so forth. Indeed, it could well be argued, and has been in various religions, that an open heart is that path to the Divine. It is the path because it is the way in which we see the Grand Organizing Designer (GOD). With that in mind, I am sometimes bewildered by those who would argue that mind power, "messing with the mind or fate" or what have you, is somehow iherently wrong. Cultivating an enlightened mind is opening the heart and opening the heart begins with changing the mind.
As a new spring season is upon us, I wish you all the budding opportunities, flowering possibilities and new growth that this wonderful thing we call life has to offer. May your minds be enlightened and your hearts opened and made light.
Thanks for taking the time to listen. Eldon
Spatial advantages may be due more to wealth than sex Researcher Susan Levine of the University of Chicago has found a link between the nature and variety of stimuli available to young people that threatens the old adage that males outperform females on spatial tasks due to inherent propensities. What Levine found strongly suggests that if such a propensity exists for young males, tys and activities that promote spatial skills crucially influence it. In Levine's study, the children of poor families faired much less favorable between sexes than did the children from economically advantaged families. (Bower 2005)
Menstrual cycle changes women's brain According to the findings of David Silbersweig of Cornell University an area of the brain known as the orbitofrontal cortex changes during monthly cycles. This area of the brain is involved in regulating emotion and is more active "in response to negative words" than to neutral or positive words during menstruation. (Brownlee 2005)
Brainy Babies come from Fitter Moms Gerb Kempermann of the Max Delbruck Center for Molecular Medicine in Berlin, Germany reported finding that fit moms provide neurological benefits to newborns in the March 7th Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Kempermann's team compared brains of children during gestation and after birth. The team focused on the area of the brain thought to be important in the consolidation of memories, an area known as the dentate gyrus. Where the findings are suggestive, other researchers caution exercise during pregnancy. (Brownlee 2006)
Placebo or mind power? According to the research findings of Jian Kong of Massachusetts General Hospital in Charlestown, pain enters in the brain respond to placebo treatment. Kong used functional magnetic resonance imaging to track blood flow in the brain and found that "pronounced blood flow, a sign of intense neural activity, in six brain regions" emerged when subjects reported less pain. This study can be contrasted with the work of Tor Wager of Columbia University who found that blood flow decreased under similar conditions. The exact mechanism is not known, but the differences could be due to designs. One study looked at "elevated activity in pain related brain regions" while the other examined a later phase of pain. Of this there is no disagreement, "positive expectations can reduce pain." (Bower 2006)
