🏛️ ORIGINS AND PRINCIPLES OF HEART OF HEARTS - DEEPEST AND TRUEST THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS
#

Origins of Heart of Hearts: A Journey into the Inner Depths
#

The concept of the “heart of hearts” transcends specific historical moments, weaving through humanity’s tapestry across cultures and periods. While pinpointing a single origin might be elusive, we can explore several threads that contribute to its rich meaning:

1. Ancient Roots:

  • Philosophical and Spiritual Perspectives: Early civilizations often associated the heart with the seat of the soul and divine connection. Ancient Egyptians linked it to the ba, the immortal essence, while Greek philosophers like Aristotle saw it as the center of thought and emotion.
  • Religious Symbolism: In Abrahamic traditions, the heart represents the core of one’s faith and devotion. Buddhism emphasizes the “monkey mind” residing in the chest, influencing thoughts and desires. These concepts highlight the heart as a locus of both spiritual connection and internal struggle.

2. Literary and Artistic Expressions:

  • Romantic Imagery: Writers and poets throughout history have used the heart as a metaphor for deepest emotions, desires, and vulnerabilities. From Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” exploring inner conflict to Dickinson’s poems on longing and grief, the heart becomes a symbol of our authentic selves.
  • Artistic Representations: Visual arts from ancient Egyptian tomb paintings to contemporary sculptures often depict the heart as a focal point, reflecting its significance in understanding our essence.

3. Psychological and Scientific Approaches:

  • Modern psychology: Freud placed the id, ego, and superego within the metaphorical “psychic apparatus,” highlighting the heart as a source of primal desires and emotional drives. Other psychologists explore the complex interplay of biological factors and personal experiences in shaping our inner selves.
  • Neuroscience: While the brain is recognized as the central control center, research on emotions increasingly acknowledges the heart’s role in processing and responding to stimuli. This adds a scientific dimension to the idea of the heart as a key to our deepest feelings.

4. Universal Human Experience:

Ultimately, the “heart of hearts” resonates because it captures a fundamental human truth: We all possess an innermost realm where our most genuine thoughts, desires, and fears reside. This universal experience transcends cultural and historical boundaries, uniting us through the shared search for self-understanding and authenticity.

The origin of the “heart of hearts” is not a single point in time, but rather a continuous story woven across cultures, disciplines, and individual experiences. It is a powerful symbol of our innermost selves, reminding us to delve beyond the surface and connect with the deepest truths that reside within.

“My heart of hearts wants to write a novel. My brain keeps yelling, ‘But who the heck reads anymore?’” - Unknown

Vlad: “Hello, What can I do for you today?”

Client: “I would like to connect to my inner self and listen to my heart of heart.”

Vlad: “Where and when have you connected previously to your inner self and listened to your heart of hearts?”

Client: “I read about it, see it in movies and from my friends but I don’t recall any particular experience. Wait. When I started dating I got this uneasiness about the partner, and I do remember while traveling to another country I got the sense that something wasn’t right, and in both cases, I saved myself trouble as I acted upon it. And there is more. The trouble is that it comes and goes spontaneously. I would like to access it when I need it.”

Vlad: “Ok. You know the characteristics and patterns of the sensation that connects you to your inner self, act upon it, and have verified the outcome that in most cases if not in all is showing that it’s useful. One of the issues is that it comes and goes spontaneously and you would like to access your inner guidance when you need it. It’s that right?”

Client: “Yes. I feel as you understand me.”

Vlad: “If you allow me I present here Core transformation as a tool to connect to your inner self when you need it. The first session will take about 30 minutes and with each and every practice you’ll do it better, easier, faster, and with more elegance.”

Client: “Ok. Let’s go for it.”
