The Next Step in Human Evolution:
Awakening the Human Heart
“What we really need is a system to educate the Heart!”
~ The Dalai Lama
“Humanity is now faced with a stark choice: Evolve or die. … If the structures of the human mind remain unchanged, we will always end up re-creating the same world, the same evils, the same dysfunction.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
We invite people to consider the possibility that the next step in human evolution is to awaken the untapped potential of the human heart so we can fully embody our spiritual nature and higher consciousness. We are in a critical time when humans must do this in order to become a more enlightened species and to create a more peaceful and collaborative civilization on Earth.
We all know what I mean by the human “heart”. We are not referring to the physical heart, nor the heart chakra, but to that place in our being that is connected to spirit, to love, deep knowing and mystery. This concept of the heart has existed in human consciousness since the dawn of time. While some consider it mythical or poetic, we believe it is a real part of the human energy system and one of the most profound and powerful resources of human existence.
The heart is not just about love, it is the center for universal connection and communication. As we fully activate this center we can take not only an evolutionary step, but a quantum leap in our comprehension of life on Earth and in the Universe. We have also found that as the heart center awakens people begin to develop certain capabilities such as intuition, clairvoyance, empathy and sensitivity to subtle energy. We call these “evolutionary skills”.
There are many serious challenges facing humanity in this time: climate change, species extinction, massive ecosystem destruction for economic gain, poverty, pollution, oppression, human migrations, war, economic imbalances…. The list goes on. We cannot solve these challenges at the level of consciousness from which they were created. While there may be technological solutions at hand, they can only be implemented with massive systemic, political and social change – and that can only happen if we raise the collective consciousness of humanity. Consciousness is changed by each person working to expand their own individual awareness.
This is why YOU can change the world and help humanity evolve by activating your heart center. This is something anyone and everyone can do.
The Next Step
in Human Evolution:
Awakening the Human Heart
What if…YOU could change the world and help humanity evolve by activating your heart center? This is something anyone and everyone can do. While we all want to “follow our hearts”, we first need to learn what the heart really is.
A first step is to recognize the reality of the heart. It is the center of our energy body, the seat of our soul as well as the doorway to quantum consciousness and the spirit realms. The heart center is one of the most powerful and untapped resources in human existence, we just need to learn how to use its full potential.
Diamond Light Network offers some simple exercises to activate the heart for your immediate use. Feel free to share them – and please talk to your friends about this – talk about the reality of the heart and how we can awaken it to help humanity evolve.
When we activate our hearts, we remember who we really are: luminous beings of love and infinite awareness.
The more one strengthens and identifies with the light in the heart, the more one embodies the true self. One is less prone to be pulled off center by outside projections, desires and glamours. You become grounded in your authentic truth and presence.
“Wisdom mind is like a diamond. It is indestructible. Wisdom mind is not away somewhere else in a mountain. The seed of it is within and so like the one who is polishing a stone, with our practice we are polishing our view, our speech and our actions.”
~ The Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo

Diamond Light PODCASTS
Listen to Paul speak about the next step in human evolution, the culture of disbelief and the skills of our evolutionary potential in this series of podcasts:
1. The Next step in Human Evolution
2. Our Evolutionary Potential
3. The Vajra & Diamond Light
4. Sound Temple: new album from Paul Temple’s RadianceMatrix
Guidance & Inspiration
The Diamond Light Network (DLN) was founded by Paul Temple, a musician, who received the inspiration through the process of awakening his own heart. Through many years in mystical teachings and Tibetan Vajrayana practices, he has been led on this “path of shining Light” to help others awaken their hearts.
The music of his project RadianceMatrix is said to give a transmission of the Vajra — or Diamond Light – that helps activate the Light in our hearts.
Practices & Programs
The Diamond Light Heart Circuit is a simple and accessible practice anyone can use to begin to activate one’s heart center. Instructions for the first steps are on the “Practice” page linked below.
We also offer workshops, retreats and concerts to help people learn practices rooted in ancient mystical Himalayan teachings to awaken the Vajra – or pure radiance diamond light in our hearts.
While rooted in ancient teachings, the practices are new and intended for people in this time. Through participating in these practices and programs you will become part of a network of spiritual allies supporting you on the deepest levels to awaken your evolutionary potential.
to Activate the Heart
While the Diamond Light practices are a good way to initiate activation of one’s heart light, there are other simple things one can do on a daily basis to keep connected with your heart center. Click the link below to learn more.
There is a list of other resources for activating our hearts. Many people all over the world offer activities to the same end: there are many paths to the top of the mountain. We encourage each person to find the path that suits them best.
What is the Diamond Light?
The “Diamond Light” is what we call the seed of luminous consciousness that resides in each person’s heart center. This term derives from the Tibetan word “Vajra” which means diamond, or “pure radiant diamond light”. Other spiritual traditions refer to it as the Christ Light, the Gayatri Light, the Sacred Heart, the pure light within.
In Tibetan Buddhism the Vajra – or “pure radiant diamond light” – is said to “clear the mind of perceptions that obscure our awakened nature. It helps us embody the primordial purity of our ultimate, unfabricated reality and recognize that we are an inseparable part of the jewel-net of the universe.”
The well known mantra OM MANI PADME HUM translates as “the jewel in the lotus”. The jewel here refers to the Vajra diamond in our heart center – the radiant seed of our luminous awareness. The lotus refers to layers of protection around this jewel – like the petals of a lotus flower – that protect and keep it pure. As we chant the mantra, the petals of the lotus begins to open and the jewel in the heart begins to shine. These are ancient mystical teachings to open and activate our heart light.
REMEMBERING OUR EVOLUTIONARY POTENTIAL
This next phase of how humans can evolve as a species is not about technological advancement – but about developing a set of simple skills that can significantly change the way we live on Planet Earth. I believe these “evolutionary skills” are already latent in human DNA and were actually intentionally repressed over the past millennia…. but I get ahead of myself.
These evolutionary skills include telepathy, empathy, intuition, clairvoyance, compassion and sensitivity to subtle energy. These “gifts” are innate in our human genome – many people have them – yet they are not taught, supported or recognized as “real” in our common culture. I believe developing these skills can greatly change our perception and understanding of life and human existence. Increased heart-consciousness brings awareness of our relationship with other species and life-forms on Earth and expands our connection with the soul and quantum consciousness.
Activating the heart-center helps enhance these evolutionary skills and visa-versa: directly working to develop these skills helps increase heart-consciousness. Just as we develop intellectual capabilities through progressive exercises in arithmetic, algebra and calculus, we can engage exercises to enhance our energetic and telepathic awareness.
So I encourage all those who have these skills to start teaching to others. To those that are interested to learn and evolve: please reach out and find people and places to do so. There are exercises and classes to open these channels available in many places. A list of resources and connections is available elsewhere on this website.
While there is much attention these days on rapid technological advancements in medicine, artificial intelligence and nano-technologies, what we really need is a future-vision for humanity based on humanity actually evolving and changing into a more enlightened species. Developing these skills is something anyone and everyone can do to help raise individual and collective human consciousness. This is something you can do to both help yourself and help the world.
I invite you to again visualize that Pearl of Light in your heart, and now see a spiral of light descend from the pearl, down through your root chakra, down into the heart of the Earth. On your next inhale, breathe that connection back up into your heart. Take a few breaths sending and receiving through that spiral of light – connecting your heart with the heart of the Earth.
Now, on your next exhale, send another spiral of light from the top of the Pearl up through your crown chakra, then up into the stars: connecting with your star guides, your star family. Then inhale, bringing that spiral back down through your crown into your heart. Take a few breaths sending and receiving through that spiral of light – connecting your heart with the stars and the vastness of the sky. Heaven and Earth meeting in your heart, you are like a great tree with roots in the Earth and branches reaching to the sky, your luminous Pearl of Light in the center.
Now, across the horizontal plane, we send another set of spirals from your Pearl going out North and South. The exact directions are not important, it is more about the geometry of your energy body reaching into the horizontal plane – this axis of North – South meeting the axis of heaven and earth in your heart center, forming a great cross – the crossroads of your inner being.
The finally we send another axis of light from the Pearl into the horizontal plane going East-West, extending, expanding your connection into all three dimensions, the light in your heart is now a jewel – “an inseparable part of the jeweled fabric of the universe”.
Now just sit, breathe, feel. Observe how your heart feels with this activation and connection.
You can chant AUM or hum, adding more vibrational encoding to the visualization. You can also play recordings of RadianceMatrix while holding the visualizations, and chant along.
In closing, it is good to draw the spirals of light back into your Pearl. The channels are always there, but good to not have them too open as your return to Earthly reality. Breathe into your heart, affirming the light in yourself and your connection to all beings.
