12 Qualities of our Heart

These could also be called virtues of the heart, or energies of the heart, or capacities of the heart. The primary essence of our heart is Love. The best way to discover, experience, understand, bring forth and actualize these Qualities is through meditation or an awareness in the heart, with an attitude of openness and self-discovery, and wanting to come from the heart. Heart and mind can coordinate and integrate together in this. In our heart the quality is discovered and experienced, while our mind/intellect can reflect upon and understand the quality. The true teacher of our mind is our heart, so the best attitude is for mind to listen to heart, and for our will to express heart. Sometimes a heart is agitated, hurt, or lost. The remedy is, through meditation and deeper awareness, to uncover the quality of heart that is missing and needed.
