We should want our heart to find a home within the softness of the spiritual fruit. That is a place of comfort and peace. When we do not discover that home for the heart, it develops a residency within the hardness of the inner being. It is there that the hardness acts as an anvil, and the surrounding environment is the hammer. That is when we find it difficult to tolerate various circumstances, causing pain and difficulties for the heart. Home is where the heart is, so let our heart be found in a home of love, peace, faith, joy, and perseverance.
Within the body is a divine presence, the place where the home of the heart should be. If our hearts are not there with the inward divinity, then the heart will be in distress. That is like placing the heart upon a hardened altar to be pricked, prodded, and abused.
The spiritual fruit will blossom when we are at home with the inward deity. The softness and moisture of the spirit's fruit are what brings comfort and health to the heart. That tenderness includes kindness, goodwill, meekness, gentleness, joy, goodness, patience, and self-control. If our hearts are not at home where the spiritual fruit blossom, then the heart will suffer harshness, over exertion, and conflict. That is like placing the heart upon the hardness of our inner being, to be hammered with conflict and strife.
When our heart is home with the divine presence of our soul, we feel comforted in our health through the spiritual fruit. The soft moisture through the fruit of peace, love, joy, and perseverance cushions the heart with a healthy comfort. Like a trampoline absorbing the ups and downs of the jumpers, the heart healthily absorbs volatile influences.
When our heart is not at home with the fruit of the divine presence, we suffer heart aches, pains, and cardiac arrest. A disregard for the moisture of our inward being, concerning our health, hardens us. That hardness puts our heart in a glass jar full of chloroform until it pumps no longer.
When our heart is home with the divine presence of our soul, we feel safe and secure through the comfort of the spiritual fruit. That comfort comes through the fruit of meekness, gentleness, and peace, enveloping the heart to provide a soft cushion of tranquility. That is like the marshmallow texture of ear plugs protecting your inner ear from harsh and damaging sounds.
When our heart is not at home with the fruit of the divine presence, we will be filled with insecurities within the heart. A disregard for the moisture of our inner being to establish a safe and secure atmosphere hardens us. That puts our heart on chaotic and shattering ground. That is like locking our heart into a closed box amidst angry and hungry cats that scratch, bite, and tear the vessel to pieces.
When our heart is home with the divine presence of our soul, we feel comfort in our acceptance into a place of belonging through the spiritual fruit. That is a place where relationships form through the fruit of love, goodwill, and kindness, bringing comfort to the heart. That is like a litter of puppies, kittens, or a school of dolphins bringing joy and love to us all.
When our heart is not at home with the fruit of the divine presence, then we will never discover a place of tolerance, acceptance, and love. A disregard for the moisture of our inner being in our acceptance of others hardens us. That puts our heart on a rock to be needled with intolerance.
When our heart is home with the divine presence of our soul, we feel comfort in the estimation of our self-worth through the spiritual fruit. That is a place where we feel faith in the goodness within our ego, and joy within our esteem through the spirit's fruit. We love ourselves and others while sharing optimism. That is like a sunflower that grows in the direction of the sun, and brings smiles to those around.
When our heart is not at home with the fruit of the divine presence, then we will never discover a place of worth, nor be able to esteem others. A disregard for the supreme value of the inner moisture hardens us. That puts our heart on the pavement to be squeezed and trampled.
When our hearts are home with the divine presence of our soul, we feel comfort in our self-expression through the spiritual fruit. The softness of love, peace, faith, and perseverance in our words and deeds is a cushion for the heart. Every word spoken are like seeds planted within the soul to give growth to a joyful heart.
When our heart is not at home with the fruit of the divine presence, then we will never communicate in a beneficial way with others. A disregard for the moisture of our inward being in our self-expression hardens us. That puts our heart on the shelf of a podium to be plummeted.
Some people will deny that home is where the heart is. They avoid making a comparison of a healthy heart and a "stony" one. One is immersed into the soft moisture of the spiritual fruit, the other entangled into the hardness of the inner being. They hurl harshness, anger, and pessimism towards the heart laying on the altar of hardness. They do not bring agreement to the heart within a healthy home, but will incite friction to the heart in a stony place. Acceptance of the softness of the spiritual fruit within our thoughts, emotions, and behavior is the only way to find our way home to a joyful heart.
Reservoirs of people exist who intend to entangle your heart into the hardness of your inner being. The attitudes that exit from them include harshness, conflict, pessimism, and hatefulness to hammer the heart. Those attitudes transfer through people who want to stop the harassment that discomforts their heart. They attack others to avoid the disheartening attacks that come to themselves.
We develop hostile attitudes to the functioning of the heart from a desire to feel worth to those around us. We might be constantly discomforted through demeaning attacks that do not value the source of our life. Then, we attempt to appease the attackers to relieve the stress, and solicit praise. We will respond with hostility to the signs of soft and comforting qualities within others. That opposes the divinity within the body, the producer of spiritual fruit. They do that to feel valuable, or worthy, among those who are hostile to the welfare of the heart.
Those who are susceptible to the hostilities targeted at their heart are not aware that home is where the heart is. They do not realize that the softness of the inner being comforts the heart, and that softness is found within the spiritual fruit. That fruit creates a healthy and comfortable home for the heart. However, their responses to negative influences are unfruitful, and that hardens the inner being. That entangles their heart into the hardness of their soul, exposing them to discomforting stresses.
We can interrupt the cycle of heart aches by realizing home is where the heart is. When we make our home in the soft moistness of the spiritual fruit that is a joyful heart. The spirit's fruit blossoms when we honor the deity within us, the source of all goodness. However, when we disregard the tenderness of our inner being, that results in hardness, and exposes the heart to dysfunction.
We can make the assessment that home is where the heart is. The diagnosis is that some people want to make that home dysfunctional within the hardness of the inner being. Even so, we plan to make that home within the comfort of the spiritual fruit, where moist softness exists. We implement that plan by honoring the divine goodness of the soul, the producer of the spirit’s fruit. We evaluate how we are doing from the softness of love, peace, faith, and perseverance that blossoms in our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Those qualities cushion the heart with comfort and joy.
