The writer of “Wild at Heart” a great book….This is a quote from an interview he did talking about men.
“We have to start with the heart,” he began, “whether we’re after a mythic life, a poetic life, a spiritual life, or a transcendent life, the heart is the ‘wellspring of life within you.'” [From an ancient Hebrew proverb.]
Eldredge said most “modern enlightened men” live by the Greek model of the personality which divides the head (reason) and the heart (emotion).
“Your feelings from the heart are the most profound, the deepest, the truest you,” he said. “The heart is the source of your memories, passions and desires. It’s where you do your life. I believe there are universals written on the human heart. And, what’s so awesome about that is there are particulars as well. You may love to write and think, while another man loves to build and to construct things. Another person loves to sing. The uniqueness of the human heart helps us share the essential universals between us. That’s what makes getting to know a person so fascinating.”
