Stocking Stuffer

The intellect naturally yields to convictions in the heart. This is how we are designed by God, but for too long humans have been under the sway of a pervasive lie about reality. Our world is dominated by the myth that the intellect is the highest faculty, the only one fit to reign over the soul. And we know that the intellect prefers black-n-white, concrete notions of reality. It prefers linear thinking.

The heart doesn’t work that way. It knows things on multiple levels, and chases multiple branching choices based on moral conviction, not some false notion of efficiency or effectiveness. The mind can discover how to handle the resulting choices if we subject it to the heart. This is our natural condition. Thus, we are fully capable of developing a merged sense of awareness that doesn’t depend on linear thinking. Choices need not derive from some simple sequential logic. Decisions can be made from leaps of intuition and multiple choices derived from web logic.

To make the most of this image, you need to think of it as multi-dimensional. It’s more than linear, more than planar, more than 3D; it can make connections that escape the boundaries of time and space. It considers a tesseract a very basic concept, taking for granted that you should be able to step back and forth through time and ignore spatial limitations.

The mind can do that; Western logic cannot.

Again, it’s not as if we pretend to belong to some other culture on this earth. Rather, we belong to a culture that transcends this world. But the way we know we can do this is to see how other cultures from the past also gave credence to the presence of higher domains of existence. It’s not math or science — it’s something beyond concrete facts. It’s a sense of knowledge and awareness based on inputs from a higher realm, a reality bigger than what our senses and logic can handle alone.

You can do this. It’s how we are designed and made by God.
