Healthy Love = A Healthy Heart

canstockphoto11079219I’m sitting in a coffee shop writing about the heart, when I overhear soft cries coming from the table next to me. I witness the stressful exchange on my way to the restroom. Two women are sitting across from each other, one tries to suppress rolling tears; wiping her creaming cheeks quickly, then whisking the moisture onto her jeans. The other woman makes direct eye contact with her distressed companion, never diverting her compassionate stare. I told myself I would turn the volume up on my Pandora jazz, as soon as I returned to my laptop, and muffle her heart wrenching sobs. I did my best not to look in their direction. But it was a little too late. My empathic pulse could feel her anguish of a love lost.

We have all experienced loves hurt. Wanting passion, and attachment so desperately, we forget to ask the soul if the worshiped desire is in the best interest of all. Could it be that we’re choosing love in an unhealthy way? Are we forcing circumstances out of ego instead of an unveiled freedom of awareness? And if we are, is this determination in part bringing into being the leading cause of death in the US – heart disease? Over 80 million Americans suffer from some sort of cardiovascular disorder. That number is expected to rise annually due to modern medicine’s ability to prolong living with chronic conditions.

Romantic love is but one vein of enchantment. The love for family is exhausted in grief when an individual is unable to create a child. Is our idea of family filled with expectations? Aren’t we all one big family, capable of sharing intense fulfilling moments with all living creatures? Or has the promise surpassed the real joy of the soul? And is it possible that the hardening of expectancy also hardens the arteries?

I wonder what happened to the simplicity of letting go. Just like the lower reservoirs of the heart (ventricles), they must fill with nutrient rich blood primarily by gravity. In their relaxation, the bicuspid and tricuspid valves are discerning. Each valves leaflet is anchored to the heart wall by cords of fibrous tissue. Their primary job is to keep the blood flowing in a healthy direction.

We seem poorly equipped to maintain life flowing in a benevolent direction. Maybe, if we listen to the energetic wisdom of the heart, instead of the have to’s of the mind, we could accept peace when a unique and extraordinary plan B materializes gifting us the luxury of an undiscovered love. And just like the echocardiograph you may gain an ultra high reflection of you!
