I love it when things in my life come together at the same time.
This time it was a sermon from Jim Cooper at Olivet New Church in Toronto. The sermon was about Jesus transforming the water into wine at the Cana wedding. And here’s the bit that tickled me:
Waterpots, being vessels which receive water, represents the mind which receives truth. Filling the water pots is, therefore, an image of learning.
The Lord Himself commands us to learn, to fill our vessels. Whether or not that water is turned into wine with us depends entirely upon our response. Do we approach learning half-heartedly? Do we fill the pots with only enough water to satisfy the master, to avoid getting into trouble, or do we learn with enthusiasm and interest, do we fill our vessels to the brim?
Our Liquid Brains

I’ve focused in the last couple posts on heart coherence — what it is and why it’s important to each of us.
In this article, I would like to link the physical electromagnetic energy of the heart with Swedenborg’s notion of the spiritual sphere of an individual.
Let’s start with reviewing “what is heart coherence?” and then move onto some links to Swedenborg….

This is my second entry “stealing” from my own professional blog. I mentioned in my last post that I would do some borrowing to share the idea of heart coherence and why I believe it’s so important. Once we’ve covered this, I want to directly relate the idea of heart coherence to Swedenborg’s ideas, so stay tuned! And please do ask questions and make comments about these notions, especially if they’re not clear to you.
Having said that, here is the article — it was posted on my Neurofeedback blog orginally as The Heart of Neurofeedback….

It’s been so long since I’ve written here, I wanted to get re-started even though time is at a premium these days!
So I’m borrowing from myself…this is a post from my other blog, Neurofeedback on the Brain. It introduces the idea of how important the heart is to our spiritual growth. Rather than delay posting here any longer, I’ll share this as an introduction and then another post from my Neurofeedback blog on how heart coherence actually works. Then maybe I’ll be back in the swing of things and able to get back directly to Swedenborg!
So, here goes…
How to Evolve:
1. Start with a healthy amount of Heart.
2. Add one effective and efficient Brain.
3. Mix thoroughly.
4. Let sit.
5. Check occasionally (especially in cases of environmental disturbances); add a pinch more Heart at least every 24 hours to maintain healthy growth.
And that’s it! Easy, eh?
What’s that? You’re not an experienced Evolution cook?
No problem…we’ll take it one step at a time!
