Having a Pure Heart

"What is a pure heart?  A heart free of possessiveness, a heart able to feel the sorrow of others, a heart that thirsts for what is right, a heart that is not vengeful.  We see a pure heart in the face of a virtuous person."
"To have a pure heart is to reach the destination quickly. To have a pure heart means to keep the mind free from negative and waste. When there is positivity within, the mind is receptive to new ideas as it is in perfect peace. So the best is made out of the situation at hand and so it is easy to pool in all the resources in order to reach the destination. When we have a pure heart, we experience the beauty and positivity of life. We are able to keep our mind calm and enjoy everything that comes our way. Our destination is clear and we have the confidence to work towards it. We get the blessings and good wishes of those around which help us further move forward." ~Brahma Kumaris, Mt. Abu

 "In my opinion, if you have a pure heart it means that you don't have selfish and/or evil intentions behind the good deeds you do.  It also means to be honest and to be happy for the good things that happen to others, not jealous or judgmental." ~Me
What does 'having a pure heart' mean to you?


  1. Good question. I don't think any heart is pure. We'd have to be devoid of all unkind thoughts, self-indulgent moments and lapses of selflessness. Purity, is unrealistic but it sure is something for which to strive.

  2. Yes, Hilary and that is the point! :-)

  3. Very well said Coreen. For me having a "Pure Heart" is doing our best to be a good person.

  4. beautiful post! for me having a pure heart means not having negative thoughts for people around you ... a good heart wishes love and blessings for all :)

  5. I don't think I could add anything to those descriptions!

  6. A pure heart has no guilt, no tainted areas and comes from the soul. Somewhat like your posts. :)
