How does the HUMAN HEART which inspired sonnets, songs, paintings, lovers, kindness un-busy itself from self-consciousness and learn to be a HEART? We have to unlearn as grownups and be more childlike and rediscover the purest, most innocent truths of our humanity. OUR HEARTS SHOULDN’T BE TOO BUSY TO BE A HEART.
“HEART” comes from the Latin cor and points not merely to our emotions but to the core of the self, that center place where all of our ways of knowing converge— intellectual, emotional, sensory, intuitive, among others. The HEART is where we integrate what we know in our minds with what we know in our feelings, the place where our knowledge can become more fully human. Cor is also the Latin root from which we get the word courage. When all that we understand comes together in the center place called the HEART, we’re more likely to find the courage to act humanely on what we know. OUR HEARTS SHOULDN’T BE TOO BUSY TO BE A HEART.
There are some human experiences that only the HEART can comprehend and only HEART-talk can convey. The HEART is where everything can begin. To talk from the HEART, we must allow the convergence of emotion, senses, and intuition without the fear of being vulnerable. We then would be able to embrace the conflicts that threaten the seeds of coming together.
HEART-talking fragrance is a more comprehensive way of communicating to another what vision, feeling, emotion we are experiencing. A person of wisdom talks from the HEART, not the mind, and touches the HEART of others and not their minds.
Nelson Mandela said; “IF YOU TALK TO A MAN IN A LANGUAGE HE UNDERSTANDS, THAT GOES TO HIS HEAD. IF YOU TALK TO HIM IN HIS LANGUAGE, THAT GOES TO HIS HEART.”
