When the heart is quickened in love, there is a natural surging of intense energy that is released as direct and intimate knowing. This knowing is not based on what we ordinarily recognize as information. Instead, it is a knowing that forms us as we are knowing, instructing us so directly that the mind naturally stills in its presence. In these moments there is no tide, no wave, just the naturally meditative mind perfectly inhabiting the heart.
