The Power of the Heart: Your Heart’s GPS


Your heart has a GPS very similar to your car’s Global Positioning System.


Like the car GPS, it directs you to your destination.


Unlike your car’s GPS, where you punch in your destination, the destination is hard wired into your heart: it is Your Highest Good.


If you ignore your car’s GPS and don’t make the turn it recommends, it will recalibrate your route.


In the same way, if you don’t follow your heart’s promptings, your heart too, will recalibrate.


Your heart is always leading you to Your Highest Good.


Your heart’s GPS speaks to you in your intuition. It may make you uncomfortable or irritable in order to get your attention. It may communicate in a dream or a song you can’t get out of your head.


However your intuition communicates, trust it. You may have to follow it blindly before you see how accurate it is.


The heart actually has a brain. This brain is superior to the brain in our heads.


Many of the problems in our lives and indeed in the modern world may be traceable back to allowing the brain in our heads, the logical side of us, to run the show, instead of allowing the heart’s brain, our intuition, to lead the way.


The brain in our cranium is woefully inadequate to the task. It always and forever can only see part of the picture.


Albert Einstein said: “The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.”



The heart is plugged into infinite intelligence and can see the larger picture. It can warn us of disasters or “accidents” waiting to happen in our path and steer us away from them.


It can shorten the distance to our destination…but only if we learn to follow the intuitive messages it sends to us.


How do we do that?


The suggestion from the book The Power of the Heart, by Baptist de Pape is that our intention is the first step. de Pape quotes the writer and poet Ilyas Kasam: “It is more important to be of pure intention than of perfect action.”


The Zen teacher Thich Nhat Hanh says to ask some questions before taking action.


“Am I sure?” can help to head off wrong perceptions.


“Is my intention right for now?


“Am I acting automatically or out of habit?”


Finally: “Is my intention based in loving kindness, in compassion and well-wishes for others?”


By listening for the answer, the first thought that comes up after each question, we may find our practice of listening to intuition strengthening over time.


“The power of intuitive understanding will protect you from harm until the end of your days.” -Lao Tzu

“If I create from the heart, almost everything works; if from the head, almost nothing.” Marc Chagall




Your DNA Is Largely Controlled by Your Gut Flora


An abnormal microbiome is a factor behind inflammation, food cravings, obesity, type 2 diabetes, autoimmune diseases, and many of the other chronic diseases seen today.


When your gut flora is unhealthy, leaky gut syndrome can develop whereby food particles leach into your bloodstream where they can trigger allergic and inflammatory responses.


An abnormal microbiome can also lead to depression and other emotional and physical problems, because your gut bacteria provide a significant source of your amino acids, vitamins and other important compounds. Three major ones are ATP, tryptophan and serotonin.


Beneficial bacteria also play an enormous role in your genetic expression—continuously helping flip genes off and on as you need them. Your genetic expression is 50 to 80 percent controlled by how you eat, think and move, and your genes change daily—if not hourly.


You may be surprised to learn that 140 times more genetic influence comes from your microbes as from the DNA in your own cells.


Your genes control protein coding, which determines your hormones, weight, fertility, mood and others.





The Slight Edge


Why is it that some people live the life they’ve always dreamed of, while others watch from the sidelines as their own dreams gather dust? Is it luck, or an elusive quality that only some people are born with? Neither.


Everything you need to live your own dream is contained between the pages of a simple book.


It’s called The Slight Edge, and it’s NOT a self-help gimmick or motivational tool. It simply shows you how to create powerful results from the simple daily activities of your life, by using tools that are already within you.


Once you’ve got it, then you will discover how your philosophy…creates your attitude…creates your actions…creates your results…creates YOUR LIFE! And your life will never be the same again.





Canada‘s Bill C-51 Opposed by Globe and Mail Newspaper


Globe and Mail editorial…nail on head.


“On close inspection, Bill C-51 is not an anti-terrorism bill. Fighting terrorism is its pretext; its language reveals a broader goal of allowing government departments, as well as CSIS, to act whenever they believe limply defined security threats “may” – not “will” – occur.”
