The Heart is the place where actual</p><p>thinking occurs. Now you might be saying Huh? What is this crazy lady thinking about? Well Ill tell you.</p><p>The very context of it proves that your heart is the thinking part of your entire being; its not just some</p><p>organ thats pumping blood through your body! Take a look at this verse.</p><p>For out of the heartproceed evilthoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, falsewitness, and blasphemies. ~Matthew 15:19</p><p>The Heart is actually an organ of intelligence, not just some muscle pump. Did you know that the</p><p>heart is composed of approximately 40,000 neurons that operate independently in their own right? This</p><p>is the very reason that Heart Transplants work because otherwise the severed nerve connections would</p><p>be connecting to a different body. Believe It or not it has more functions than just regulating electrical</p><p>activities to keep it pumping. Does this mean the heart cannot be influenced by messages sent from the</p><p>brain? No it doesnt. Certainly it can. The Human Heart has what some call a mini-brain which means it</p><p>can actually send signals to the brain to exercise its influence on it. Some people believe that the</p><p>Hormone Oxytocin which is also referred to as thelove hormone</p><p>isn</p><p>t just released from the brain, but</p><p>its released from the heart as well. Oxytocins importance is for a wide variety of reasons which I wont</p><p>go into. Dr J. Andrew Armour is a neurocardiologist who has some fascinating facts about the hearts</p><p>nervous system. If you want to read his book go here:Neurocardiology: Anatomical &amp; Functional</p><p>Principles</p><p>Many people assume that learning and memory are part of the central nervous system</p><p>function but after observations being made it leans more towards the systemic memory mechanism</p><p>which doesnt limit intelligence functions of the brain. These observations stemmed from organ</p><p>transplant patients or rather heart transplant recipients. Now during a study performed back in 2002,there were researchers from the University of Arizona and the University of Hawaii who published a</p><p>paper titled: Changes in Heart Transplant Recipients that Parallel the Personalities of their Donors.</p><p>The average recipient picked up two to five parallels per case from the ones previously investigated. In</p><p>other words there was a high transfer of personality traits transferred that no drug, stress of surgery, or</p><p>statistical coincidence cannot explain. I truly believe that the human body is more mysterious than any</p><p>reductionist science can ever explain or try to make us all believe.</p>http://www.heartmathstore.com/item/enro/heartmath-neurocardiology-(e-book)http://www.heartmathstore.com/item/enro/heartmath-neurocardiology-(e-book)http://www.heartmathstore.com/item/enro/heartmath-neurocardiology-(e-book)http://www.heartmathstore.com/item/enro/heartmath-neurocardiology-(e-book)http://www.heartmathstore.com/item/enro/heartmath-neurocardiology-(e-book)http://www.newdualism.org/nde-papers/Pearsall/Pearsall-Journal%20of%20Near-Death%20Studies_2002-20-191-206.pdfhttp://www.newdualism.org/nde-papers/Pearsall/Pearsall-Journal%20of%20Near-Death%20Studies_2002-20-191-206.pdfhttp://www.newdualism.org/nde-papers/Pearsall/Pearsall-Journal%20of%20Near-Death%20Studies_2002-20-191-206.pdfhttp://www.newdualism.org/nde-papers/Pearsall/Pearsall-Journal%20of%20Near-Death%20Studies_2002-20-191-206.pdfhttp://www.newdualism.org/nde-papers/Pearsall/Pearsall-Journal%20of%20Near-Death%20Studies_2002-20-191-206.pdfhttp://www.heartmathstore.com/item/enro/heartmath-neurocardiology-(e-book)http://www.heartmathstore.com/item/enro/heartmath-neurocardiology-(e-book)</li><li><p>7/27/2019 Heart, Mind, &amp; Soul</p><p> 3/4</p><p>Let's take a look at what Intelligence actually is. Its normally defined as our reasoning, capacity</p><p>for learning, or our understanding of things, among having the aptitude for grasping truth and</p><p>meanings. It actually means faculty of understanding, discerning, and comprehension. So is the heart</p><p>our organ of intelligence while our brains are our organs of cognition? If so wouldnt this cause people</p><p>to take a look at mental illness a lot differently? Tons of things to ponder with this article. Now you</p><p>might be looking at this and saying to yourself what about our Gut? Well its also a major neural centre</p><p>which could also have a mini brain of its own as with any other transplant could. Neurogastroenterology</p><p>would be something to look into if you want to learn more. The study Im writing about is mainly about</p><p>the interaction between the personality of the donor and the recipient.</p><p>Now that the Brain and heart have been taken care oflets take a look at the Soul. Most us grew</p><p>up being taught that humans consist of a soul and a body. You will constantly see Physicists assure us all</p><p>that there is no such thing as matter where psychologists will assure you that there is no such thing as</p><p>mind. I could write all about the arguments on both of these things but it would take tons of more pages</p><p>and a lot of studying and time which I believe I will just skip. A good question to ask yourself however is</p><p>whether or not the mind is immortal and whether or not the ultimate power in the universe is mental</p><p>rather than physical. Given this would you think there would be any reason to think that except on the</p><p>earths surface that anything happens because someone wished it to happen? It kind of reminds me of</p><p>that book The Secret.</p><p>If we are to believe that there is any truth in physics at all, particularly in the second law of</p><p>thermodynamics, then we cannot hope that the human race will continue to live on forever. Sorry if</p><p>thats a bit gloomy but in all honesty whatever happens millions of years from now has really no great</p><p>emotional interest for us here right now. This may be why that in spite of many theologians placing</p><p>horror in our lives that we tolerate science. Now in my opinion the soul is a sign of Gods presence.</p><p>Some of you may not believe in God so I dont speak for everyone who reads this. I dont believe any</p><p>force on earth could equal the souls influential ascendancy. So is the Soul Immortal? Good Question. I</p><p>dont have all the answers but if you look at it as though the soul may continue to progress even after</p><p>the physical body passes away until it becomes present to God then maybe you can see it in a differentway.</p><p>So do you think the Soul would be a combination of elements? Composed of many atoms? Do</p><p>individuals have any existence previous to their life on earth? According to Science everything knowable</p><p>about the soul can be learned by studying the human brain. If you look at Einstein who said that</p><p>E=MC ^2 Then by going by this equation then you have to consider that mass and energy are the same</p><p>thing which would be the law of physics. If you say the soul is merely energy or consciousness then you</p></li><li><p>7/27/2019 Heart, Mind, &amp; Soul</p><p> 4/4</p><p>are saying that the soul is matter which makes it no different from any other sort of matter, (yes biological</p><p>matter included) because Matter = Energy. In reality there is no distinction between matter and energy of</p><p>the self just as there is no distinction between biological matter and what you refer to as soul. Its all the</p><p>exact same stuff. Some people dont believe the soul exists and may even state that they are an</p><p>imaginary construct.</p><p>Heres a couple of verses to think on</p><p>And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his</p><p>nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. ~Genesis 2:7</p><p>And he that searches the hearts knows what is the mindof theSpirit, because he</p><p>makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God. ~Romans 8:27</p><p>Looking at the passages above you see that there is a distinction between the heart, mind, and</p><p>spirit. Another way to view this information is to think of a command post somewhere. They</p><p>communicate with pilots to guide them and land them safely right? Isnt that what our minds do? Send</p><p>information to your spirit which would be called having a conscience? Think about it</p><p>Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving</p><p>is nothing pure; but even theirmindandconscience is defiled. ~Titus 1:15</p><p>The Bible is considered the Book of Truth. It exists for others to analyze. Maybe it could be</p><p>considered as a makeover of your life if you want it to. We all have a choice.</p></li></ul>
