Three Stations of the Heart





The
Three Stations of the Heart
and
Three States of
Consciousness




“The root of the deeper
personality is the causal being, seated in the right side of
the heart. The context of the deeper personality is in the
center of the heart. The place and circumstance of the
dominance of the grosser personality is in the left side of
the heart. Therefore, all transitions, all growth in the Way
of the Heart, can be measured in terms of the steps or
stages or positions of the heart. Everything extended from
the positions of the heart is involved, but it all can be
seen in the plane of the heart itself. The grosser
personality on the left, the subtler manifestation of the
deeper personality in the center, the root of the deeper
personality on the right. And beyond that the Ultimate
Nature, Beyond the heart on the right.”

Avatar Adi Da describes as the three
stations of the heart, which can also be described as the
three aspects of the single heart.

The seven stages of life is what
Avatar Adi Da Samraj has called the “vertical” dimension of
the body-mind. The vertical pathways contain both the
descending and then ascending energy, associated with the
fourth and fifth stages of life, which, in the sixth stage
of life, finally falls into its source in the heart. This
description is corroborated by many traditional
descriptions, which speak of the chakras rising from the
base of the perineum, and reaching the apex at the top of
the head.

The three aspects of the heart all
appear in the great heart region, or the chest area of the
body. Avatar Adi Da calls the three aspects: the left side
(or station) of the heart, the middle depth (or station) of
the heart, and the right side (or station) of the heart.
Consciousness has traditionally been understood to have
three basic states, called the “avasthas” in Sanskrit. These
are the states of waking, dreaming, and deep sleep that
everyone knows.

The region of the left side of
the heart
is the station of the waking state, and bodily
experience. The middle station of the heart is the station
of the dreaming state, and all that is the deeper psyche or
subtle and higher mind. The right side of the heart is the
base of the state of deep sleep, and the presumption of an
individual separate conscious self. Each of the stations of
the heart is, of course, associated with the seven stages of
life, as well as the vertical dimension of the body-mind.
The left side of the heart is associated with the first
three stages of life, and the “general” and “basic” contexts
of the fourth stage of life, and thus the descending or
frontal line of the body-mind. The left side of the heart is
associated with the physical heart itself.

The middle station of the
heart
is associated with what is often known as the
heart “chakra” (or “wheel”), a center of energy in the
subtle dimension. The middle station of the heart is linked
with the ascending fourth stage of life, and the fifth stage
of life, in the spinal line.

The right side of the heart is the seat of the separate conscious self. In the sixth
stage of life, the right side of the heart becomes awakened
as the root-origin of attention, and the seat of the
Witness-Position of Consciousness. As has been described, at
the culmination of the ascending process, the Spirit-Energy
“falls”, or comes to rest, in the right side of the Spirit
Energy in heart.

It is in the seventh stage of life
that the Spirit-Current rises again in the “regeneration” of
Amrita Nadi, from the right side of the heart to the matrix
above the head. In this process, the body itself is infused
with the Divine Spirit-Current in the Circle of the
body-mind. Thus, the heart on the right remains always as
the “foot” of the “organ” of Divine Self-Realization that is
“Amrita Nadi”.
