About The Unconditional Heart

About

Curiosity + Open Mind + Open Heart = Seeker of Truth

I consider myself a fairly ordinary person; I grew up in Canada and developed a talent in art at an early age. That talent would lead me to a career in advertising and graphic design. Later in my life, I became a sculptor which I continue to this day. Throughout my life, I was a searcher. What I was searching for, changed over many years, but the one constant was that I wanted a better life. But what does better mean? That proved to be an interesting question and the answer would continuously change over the years, and it is fair to say, it still is changing. If there is anything I learned, it is that nothing is final; everything in our reality is changing and expanding. Such is the nature of our universe.

My constant searching led to many deep dives into a variety of personal growth modalities from the early classics on positive thinking to business books, philosophy, psychology, mysticism, channeling, physics, science, astrology, Eastern spiritual teachers and many more contemporary spiritual teachers in the West.

Many were helpful and contributed to my growth and expansion, some were transformational at certain junctures of my life.

One day, I received an email from someone I had met. Inside the mail was a quote. I read the quote several times and I was transfixed; I wanted to know who wrote these beautiful wise words. This became my deepest dive into the wingmakers material by the author/creator James Mahu.

A long story short, I was introduced to the Six Heart Virtues, the essence of this blog. So I began my journey with these companions, these teachers, these gifts, that I could receive and give away. They would calm me, educate me, enlighten me, humble me, reward me, love me, forgive me and give me the opportunity to transform my life.

I have been practicing the Six Heart Virtues (6HVs) for over 15 years. I immediately resonated with them the moment I first read about them. I naively declared that I would master these virtues in one year; little did I know that this was to become a lifelong journey that would have no end. This would become a way of living life, for the rest of my life!

This would be the answer to the question, ‘What does better mean?”

Better means living in the moment, being a receiver and transmitter of the six heart virtues, which are all elements of love. Together expressed as a symphony, they are unconditional love. I am no expert in this, but I have every moment to practice being the essence of love. If and when, I can be present in the moment, I am fully alive, living a life of purpose and meaning. I stopped the search, there is no better in the future, it is here now, I AM it.

This blog is about my experiences practicing the 6HVs. I have been a member of a small group that meets on Zoom twice a month to discuss and share our experiences with the 6HVs. Being in this group was to become profoundly helpful for me, in expanding my understanding and igniting my creative interchange with the virtues in every aspect of my life.

Because I witnessed first-hand the benefits of sharing this practice with others, I decided to start this blog to share my experiences with anyone who may be interested. This is an experiment to see where spirit takes me and if anyone out there is interested and/or may benefit by reading about my journey.
