When one is touched by Truth, the mind begins to be pushed to the backburner. This is not always a simple process, and depends on how deeply one relies on the mind as its tool to receive information. If one uses the mind only to process (or release what comes through), then the transition is much smoother because the jump from mind to Heart is not as far. If one relies on the mind to understand the process, then one begins to go in circles, because the mind cannot understand what it is IN, and all attempts to understand creates a kind of insanity (which then creates fear, and fear; breeds fear).
It will only go on for as long as one resists and continues the attempt to bring Heart to mind, instead of relaxing mind into Heart. Sounds simple, and ultimately it is, however, one is wise not to underestimate the power of mind to remain in control (the mind thrives on complexity; and the Heart Reveals itSelf in Simplicity).
The good news is that there are not two separate things (Heart and mind) because the mind is IN the Heart. One does not have to fear insanity or anything at all; because no matter what, you are always in yourSelf. Be aware that the cycle of attempting to understand, can get out of hand for a while, again depending on whether one begins to accept that they will not ever understand or continues futile attempts to understand. If one naturally relaxes and lets go of understanding, one begins to Know.
What is the difference between understanding and Knowing (with a capital “K”)? The difference is that understanding comes from the mind and is something that can be learned, explained and understood by the mind (it is proof of something). “Knowing” comes from what the mind is IN and is Revealed. When you “Know” something you do not require proof of (you don’t need proof of air to breath and you don’t need proof of knowing; to Know).
Words will not ever explain this, but if you Know or are at least willing to know where you are being pointed, then you will need no words.
