Dear Ones,

How would it be to meditate on the four chambers of the heart? Would that be fun?

Right Atrium, Right Ventricle, Left Atrium, Left Ventricle … like that.

In the drawing, ‘R.A.’ means right atrium … that is, on the right side of my body as I look down at it; ‘R.V.’ means right ventricle; ‘L.A.’ means left atrium; and ‘L.V.’ means left ventricle. 

Here is a video on the circulation of blood through the heart:
