We have big hearts. Big enough to reach around the world. So big we rarely give up on love. So big that sometimes sky and earth are not big enough.
Kate Amoss turned me onto The Biology of Transcendence: A Blueprint of the Human Spirit by Joseph Chilton Pearce. This 85 year-old elder shines light on neurocardiology and foresees a new brain that will make us more heart intelligent. The heart is smart- we have brain cells in our hearts! AND, Chilton Pearce hallmarks play as key to this evolutionary path.
In the center of the spiral is the heart. Our heart is in our hand. Hands speak for the heart.
Connections between us transcend theory. We engage electromagnetic currents that we sense most easily in the three feet of space around our body. But our hearts bridge greater distance, time, even life itself. Something about InterPlay enables us to open our heart a little more and consent to play. Is this why InterPlay is an international movement? Because love is happening, and if not love, some weird, delightful electromagnetic affection?
Evidence of hearts at work in the coming month include:
Masankho Banda, InterPlay ambassador, reunites with Shiphiwe, his love from 23 years ago in Malawi at Christmas.
The heart of Nika Quirk, InterPlay board president, travels to the UK to lead with support from Caroline Kiesel (Minnesota) and friends in the British Isles.
InterPlay India’s heart called Harriet Platts (Seattle), Sally Craig (DC), George Muedeking (Albuquerque), Peter and Jenny Batten (Melbourne), Trish Watts, (Sydney) Tony Hole (Adelaide) and Stephen and Cynthia (Oakland), to join Prashant Olalekar, Hazel Fernandez, and Jaime and Ligia in Mumbai, S. Gudjarat, Delhi, and Varanasi. Trish has been there six weeks coaching and playing with India leaders.
Phil and CathyAnn Beaty travel to Australia to deepen those reciprocal connections formed over twenty years.
Nadia Thalji from Brazil travels to the US for training. Her heart moved the first time she InterPlayed. This blend of creativity, community, and wisdom is her path.
I’ve barely started. It’s best not to think too much about zillions of connections and the wild ways of the heart. We can count some, but the truth is—-they work by math we cannot calculate. In fact, someone discovered there are 50 trillion cells in the average human body. Multiply that by 6 billion people on Earth and you get about 300 sextillion cells which is also the number of stars believed to be in the universe. Unfathomable, but not to the heart.
