From my Old Journal – April 13 2003-

The heart is a deep source of knowledge and we ‘think’ with our body. We need to recover our lost heart, as Mencius said, because when we recover our heart and its feelings we find out again how to live, we become whole again. The heart is both a physical organ, which can be diseased, and also an organ of feeling, which society abuses and ignores. It is also some kind of memory or cognitive organ. Wholeness is when the heart functions properly on each level- unconscious, body, feeling – all enmeshed together, running in sync.
