The Heart that Matters; Theoretical View of the Heart.

The Heart that Matters;

images (2)

In every life the potential for life giving attributes is breathed into their hearts. In it the components that will allow them to live, love and show compassion. The heart in itself has neurons in them and thinks as a brain, probably not as articulate but it functions as a vital organ and a memory bank that stores information. It is versatile as it is strong and functional. This is the key to knowing the most important organ in life. The Egyptians also knew that the heart was the most powerful organ in the body and in the mummification of Osiris thought that they could preserve his heart for his return.

There are 3 general ways to view things in life; personally, subjectively and objectively. Chronologically,  the first perspective being personal it may sound selfish but it’s all about what you want. All that is critical to the universe of the man/woman comes from the heart. The center of your universe would be you and the heart. Your planet the center of your living plane. Your solar system/galaxy your personal plane of existence. Lets do some purposeful/active/inventive thinking here. Who is to say that the big black void in the center of the universe called the massive black hole is the center of your universe when everything that happens is here, in your heart. The scientific notion that a super massive black hole is the center of your world is irrelevant and also belittling when you are in charge of your universe, you get to say what needs to happen, what goes and what doesn’t. You determine your destination in life. It is our universe though and from this perspective you are the single entity that makes the rules in what you want to see. This is one way to establish the 1st view of life we see on a daily basis.

The heart of the matter is you must be willing to not be ignorant and see it only one way but two to three ways. You acknowledge that that there is more out there and your galaxy is scientifically revolving around this super massive black hole but you have your own field of gravitation and things around you are under your influence. Except you get to choose what, when and how it happens. Remembering that your not the only field of influence with gravity to change events and things around you. There are those who have more powerful levels of influence and they can do more then tell normal people to do certain things. There are also numerous numbers of influences and this can cause even more distortion, dissonance and chaos in what you see in front of you. Understanding one view of the world from the personal 1st person view, then understanding an subjective view from the 2nd person view is another and understanding a objective view from the 3rd person view is crucial in seeing the whole picture.

The first person view is one personal and one usually being seen from your very own eyes. You control this world it is personal and you are in charge and able to establish a field of influential gravity. The second person view is one where you are a spectator watching as an equal beside/among and talking as if you were aiding a friend with advice and compassion. Third person view is one where you are indifferent and not in the same plane as the person you are watching. As a spectator you know the people and see it all through a lens from the sky. Sometimes seen as a “objectified” state it is highly recommended not to think so forward for the sake of your humanity. But it is also the summation of all views and perspectives in consideration that have gravity on the subject. So this view is a product of every force transpired influenced by the human field of gravity in the event.

The views of the heart are crucial to the study of the things around you. We must use the combination of all three views to get the best results even when only speaking from one of the three chosen perspective spoken tenses. When speaking from the heart you are essentially speaking a truth that is a medium of all three perspectives seeing from all sides incorporating compassion, love and a divine justice in all situations. It is only through the heart that we see the most reasonable, correct and justified state of our life. And we must push for this truth so that man can change and become more than we are currently. More divinely inspired, influential and hungry for truth.

Poetry; Bitter Sweet Lullaby: In love with an idea

Bitter Sweet Lullaby;


In love with an idea,

Secrets, Enigmas and Hidden things.

Only the lost know that they need to be found.

So that forbidden misunderstood things can be privileged.

The secret to the insanity.

Is that it is two face to one coin.

The disease is part of the cure.

The taboo that is death is also found in life.

Who knew the medium to death and life was love.

As much as we bring those we love to experience life.

We also bring them in to allow them to suffer death.

It is not because we hate them that we do this.

It is out of love that brought life and death of a person.

It is love that brought us together on this Earth to experience it as we do.

It is love that will dispell the sickness of the world’s disorder, dysfunction and illness of the soul.

Compassion, Love and tolerance that..

Eradicates extreme sorrow, pain, discrimination, hate, rape and torture.

It is heart breaking to love,

and rewarding as well,

To act as if i knew love well,

is to ask if i was capable of it.

The redundancy to that question is,

why one would keep himself to the point of insanity

for a make belief idea.

Because, i’m in love with an idea.

A fool, idiot and martyr for the flames.

The secret is that they know me well, but i don’t know them.

To be honest is that fair?

I’m waiting for divine intervention and beacon of light.

For a sign that it’s alright,

To be who i am,

To allow my soul to mend,

To know that there is purpose to my existence and a destiny bigger than myself.

Love creates bridges,

It has substance,

It fights harder if it fails,

It creates miracles as it works when nothing else will.

Tai Lopez Notes for Chp: 26 “About life”: Redundancy and 6 Sigma System.

Creating systems are an asset to all that you do it has an automated passive effect.

Engineering principles. Six Sigma perfecting: it is sort of like when 2/3 out of 5 things that fail it still works. Creating redundancy to fill in the gap for sake of failure.

life is short and we have all the time in the world to prepare for failure.

Increase efficiency through simulation. Fail to fail. Don’t make mistakes; learn from other’s actions/records, they don’t have to be your mistakes.

The six sigma defect quality check.

1-7 sigma planning. Belt and suspenders create redundancies. double or make triple, quadruple insurances. no single point of failure. Use: memory tricks, stories, memory or write it down.

simulate and soak all information into ours heads.

Make a perfect system with little effort. Energy is finite.

F22 exercise for stress reduction. Plan for 3 scenarios:

a) absolute best scenario,

what will happen.

build a plan know how to spend money.

b) most likely case.

what will happen.

how will you deal with it.

c) worst case scenario.

what will happen.

how will you deal with it.

Idea, plan and execute.

What do you love? The universal question to life.


What is the meaning to life. Is it really to fulfill your role? is it not to live to your fullest potential? To shine the brightest out of all your alternative realities? To bloom and realize your truest, happiest and ultimate form?

Is life really to have existed; to have been, will be.. and is? To just experience life and see all the bad and good in it and to improve and see it improved mindlessly through a natural process of filtering/distillation what works and what does not? It doesn’t matter who you love who you hate. Who you struggle with or what you do. It’s the trail of mystery, questions and solutions you come up with that makes the universe interesting and invaluable.  There is no greatest answer in the world. There is only the greatest question, what do you love? Attraction brings the greatest pleasures in life. The duality of opposites coming together to create new life.

Some people love art, others love cars, some love people, there is love in animals, books, mathematics.. The question that is raised that brings profit, interest, happiness is the question what is it you love? The world is abundant of things lovable and interesting. My love is in secrets, my love is a secret. It’s riddles, enigmas and  your deepest darkest thoughts. In my life i want to see my greatest potential, i also want to see my deepest secrets and to find love in life. Whatever that love may be-  be it thing, place or person. I need to find out what it is.

I guess if I am to embody this theory that is dream, life, light and self made heroes. I am actually trying to embody the spirit of love in general. And love has two faces, ugly and good. I guess i’m aiming for the middle of it because this has been the trend that has been leading me to believe is best. I don’t need to help you define what this love looks like in life because we can see it openly in the world already. Finding out the meaning of love is a double edged sword, it can end miserably, you can find happiness or be somewhere inbetween the sharpest tipped point. I just hope i find what i love first before i end up old, hardened, wrinkly and unlovable. Oh and i suppose i should mention love hurts, so be prepared to be terribly disappointed or delighted, both or neither to various degrees at the same time.

Tai Lopez Notes for Chp: 25 “About life”: The Seasons of Life

Nature dictates a life cycle of many years.

Take 1 thing and hang on to it.

Natural seasons in a man’s cycle of life.

Don’t get trapped in the winters of life.

Put in the hours.

Planting and catching on to the cycle.

Mother nature is cruelest of teachers.

Winter: Recoup, recover and prepare.

Spring: schedule, organize, invest, sow seeds and find opportunities.

Summer: Activity, work and go to events.

Fall: Reaping rewards and “fatten” up hope for the best in winter.

Poetry; When Light Dawns and Night Sleeps. We wake.


A poem: Unprepared to Transcend .

When light dawns and night sleeps. We wake.

Life is nor beaming light,

Or shadowy darkness,

It is shades of greys, hints and hues,

Life is solid, practical and comprehensible.

It’s accessories, components, elements are factors.

In it’s persuasion to be tame.

The paint we throw at life is makeshift and substance,

We see life subjective, objective and deductively.

First person watching straight on,

Second person watching beside,

Third person watching from afar.

We took paths that never reveal themselves until realized.

We took life as it came and it spoke.

It granted us reason, wisdom and knowledge.

We read it like a book and it came at us in:

Delusion, Lessons and Memories.

We fought the war against time,

But we continue the fight daily as the trend never ends.

Life is hope, faith and redemption.

What am I but a glimpse of destiny,

In this distorted, untimely and warped time frame.

I do not see, hear and smell evil.. thus do I not do no evil?

No it is that I understand evil that I refrain from it.

consequence, circumstance and condition reminds,

it impedes, it intercedes  and it intervenes.

The value of life is the labor of faith, experience and research.

The value of education, the pinpoint destiny of product for your work,

The value of principles, that deeds write your virtue.

But is life an objective where you go there and fro?

It is many objectives with many stages, checkpoints and levels

It is sentences within chapters within books.

The place you look to go is one of chaos, dissonance and confusion.

Home happens to be; past, present and future.

If summation of past makes present.

Many presents is a compartmentalized future.

Many futures means hope is possible.

Hope is a percentile chance, a statistic and roll of the dice.

Though we aim it right and summon all our strengths we get attributes.

An act of chance becomes a game of skill on a dartboard.

Lets aim for a sustainable, livable and manageable future.

From there we can work on power, control and abundance.

Because we lack the wisdom, balance and intellect.

Practicality, humanism and creativity is put on hold,

Told it’s unimportant when it should be our basis.

The stew of ideas is brewing,

The conjuring of a way to simplify a more predictable and desirable future.

The path is written and the redemption for those suffering in the process is coming,

It’s a reckoning indeed, one to be our summation of all our works put together.

It is never the end though, as long as we breath and fight and bite.

There’s always fuel when we burn on spirit.

Pain, Submission and  Defeat never stopped  us.

Do or die. Birds will fall or they fly.

There’s a feeling that burns, there’s something wrong in our future.

Does no one else feel we are missing something?

And it’s you, a better, stronger, smarter version of us.

Better forget about our luggage because all we can bring is ourselves.

Prepare yourselves. This is all I can say.

Life as a level of correctness; justified, functional to disorderly.

Know the right and be prepared.

Because the key to the fight is where you will be when it starts.
