The Heart as a Symbol
The heart as a symbol isn’t really thought about too much. It represents love. It represents the heart center of the body. But why? The symbol that we use to represent a heart doesn’t actually LOOK like a heart… so why do we use it.
I will attempt to explain.
First there is one. The solitary.
Then the solitary meets another. Boy meets Girl. Girl meets Boys. There are lots of stories.
There is an attraction and the two are drawn to one another.
Their lives come together.
Their lives become intwined. Interestingly at this point the symbol resembles the linked wedding bands that are often used as a depiction or symbol of marriage.
The two now joined as one come together in their thinking and their lives and move into the future.
In some things becoming one in thought and action.
Fill that in and you get your basic heart shape.
Make it more defined and prettier and you have the common heart.
Color of blood and life.
Happy Valentine’s Day everybody!!!
