Heart      

← Předchozí   Další →

by Caleb Kerr

The heart means love. A good heart means love to the Lord and to the neighbor while a hard or stony heart means the love of self or the world, riches and things. When the psalmist asks the Lord to search his heart, he wants the Lord to see what it is that he loves. And we are what we love. What we eat may form our earthly body, but it's only temporary, what we love forms our spiritual body, beautiful or ugly as we have chosen.

It's interesting to note that the first multi-cellular motion of our embryo is the pulsating that starts in a twist of blood vessel that is to become our heart, and the last motion of our natural body is our heartbeat. It is there for all of our natural life. And of course there is a beating heart in our spiritual bodies when we come to put them on.

It is hard to think of the uses of the heart in the body without also thinking of the lungs. The heart circulates the blood to give life to the whole body but unless that blood is sent first to the lungs to be oxygenated and purged of injurious gases it would be useless. These two organs work together, and they are nested together with the heart lying between the two lungs, and each feels the others motion. These two represent our love and our wisdom, and just as our loves need to be purified of injurious things by our understanding of truth, and charged wit the knowledge of how to actually do the activities it longs for, so the love and wisdom, or will and understanding, work exactly like our heart and lungs. In truth it goes deeper than that. Our will and understanding are created in "the image and likeness" of God's Divine will and Divine understanding, and our hearts and our lungs function the way they do to mirror that on the lowest level of creation.

There is always more to be said, more connections to be made. See "Church" and "Grand man".
