Still another fine quote from the office wall of Dr. Matt:
“The heart of the wise man is in his mouth.” – Benjamin Franklin
I cannot be presumptuous regarding exactly what Benjamin Franklin was referring to here, but to me it speaks of the Transcendent as the “heart”.
The wise man speaks from the Transcendent.
At the same time, he speaks from the Transcendent through the fine feeling level and then on through words in a fully integrated and undistorted manner.
So heart can refer to feelings, yet they are expressions of wisdom only when integrated with the transcendental depth of our being.
