We have a funny thing, this Heart Center, this little box there, this little triangle. There is nothing in the BodyGraph that is more complex. It is so complex and dense in its biological values, it's unlike anything that is there in the BodyGraph. Not only that, but it only has four ways in and out. It's not like the Throat with its 11, the Sacral with its 9, with big time hook-ups in every direction. And yet, it is one of the most powerful things in the world.
In many ways, it is THE not-self. If I could describe what the not-self of the world really was, if I had to point to one thing that says this is the place of the not-self in the world, I would go to the Ego Center, the Heart Center. There's something really odd.
About two-thirds of humanity are Generators with frustration as a theme in life, and about two-thirds of humanity have an undefined Ego Center. You put those two things together and you've got a miserable planet. You really do. You have the deep sickness that is there in the not-self.
My business is to give you the opportunity to discover love for yourself, for your uniqueness, for the beauty that is there inherently in you. And the undefined Ego says, “I'm shit.” That's what it says. It doesn't necessarily say it that crudely. And it usually says it with a large whine. “I'm not good enough. I'm not worthy. I'm not worthy of God's grace. I'm not worthy of your love. I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy.”
And it gets worse. I wouldn't mind so much if they walked around whining all the time saying they were unworthy, but they try to do something about it. This is where the problem is. And they really don't get the joke or the irony at all.

When I look at all of the openness that’s there in somebody's design, it is clear to me that the undefined Ego is what really creates the deepest dilemmas in humanity as a whole.
The moment that you live your life according to your mind, making decisions according to your mind, there’s just no way you’ll be able to fulfill the potential that is there for you.
One of the great dilemmas that you’re going to face as we move along in this journey is understanding that what stands in the way is mind. As long as your mind is going to be in charge of your decision making process...
Everything about Human Design can get distilled down to a number of things. The first thing is to understand that all of this is about being able to deal with your mind. It’s about being able to replace your decision-making mind with another mechanism that you can use and trust.
