The important thing to remember is that we make choices that drive us into either our hearts or our heads. Whatever we choose to give our attention to will determine where we center our consciousness. If we choose pastimes that indulge our lower desires, such as intrigue, gossip, or comparing, then we will find ourselves stuck in the ego. But if we give our attention to our higher desires, those that encourage a sense of gentleness, peace, and acceptance, we are sure to gain access to the heart. It is ultimately up to us. Consciousness will follow our focus.
