Set yourself free from mind limitations by living from the heart by Shima Shad Rouh from the book “Divine Love “
Human being suffers from the limitations and believes of his own mind.
Our thoughts are affecting our health and the mind is underlying reason of our disease. Looking for solution to set humanity free from suffering, has been the point of focus of many spiritual teachers throughout the history. Buddha as one of the pioneers in this field, suggested by denying the self, you can set yourself free from suffering.
His method is a highly effective method and that’s what made this method popular in the world, by paying attention to what is changeable is not real, so by denying the self, you become self-less and you can set yourself free from suffering.
While Buddhism deny the self, Hinduism teaching, is based on the self. Self as the source of everything.
Brahman in Hinduism
Brahman, is the very Self, the indivisible, pure, “I” ness, which is everywhere, in everything and around everything. There is no duality, division or dichotomy in Brahman. Brahman is one Supreme endless unitary feeling of “I” ness. That “I”ness is pure, immutable, indivisible and universal in Brahman, but manifests in the field of Nature as selfishness and egoism.
In the supreme consciousness of Brahman, there is no “you” or otherness. In him, “you” are lost because the notion of “you” remains absent forever. When you achieve union with Brahman (brahmasparsha), you cannot explain your experience (brahmanubhuthi) to others, because in him there is no experience of experience.
What I would like to suggest here is that instead of becoming self-centred or Self-denial, which each practise focuses on the mind, and comes from the mind, is better to bring the attention to the heart. We neither deny the self nor become self-cantered, instead becoming Heart-centred.
As Einstein said we cannot solve the problem from the same source which created the problem, the source of creating the problem is the mind, and thousands of years human tried to solve the mind issues from the mind and the result is what we see today.
I would like to introduce the concept of Heart-Centeredness, Living from the heart and resting the questions in our heart and seek the solution from there.
As Rumi said: there is only one language to the heart and that is the language of silence!
When you step into the zone of love, language, as we know it becomes obsolete. That which cannot be put into words can only be grasped through silence. “Shams”
Meditation is a great tool to silent the mind. However, in the path to divine love, you don’t silent the mind, you rest your thoughts in your heart, so they can transform to blessing and compassion.
This transformation of the mind into the ocean of the heart, creates the indescribable feeling of pure love, peace and harmony, where one finally sees its music in tune with the music of the universe, one become a unified verse with the uni-verse.
When you stay in this state of loving harmony, you are never the same again. Now you can only become better at remaining at this stage longer and longer.
Adding this practice to our life, not only affects your health and has immense healing power, (as all our illnesses routes in mind and the mind is resting in the ocean of love and peace and happiness, the illness disappears), but also serves our social well-being, reduces the crime rate and increased the contribution in the society.
This beautiful energy is highly contagious, like kindness and compassion, it can be delivered from heart to hearts and awaken the people on this planet “Earth” to be living on their home land “Heart”, “H” that has been previously pushed by the mind to the end, now will have the opportunity to sit back on its origin and become the “Heart” planet of love.
This is the ultimate solution for a happy fulfilling life!
May I witness the day of manifestation of heart energy on our planet and our lives.

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honourably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond. “Rumi”
