Heart Is Truth

My heart belongs to me and only me.
It is not selfishness, only the need to be
Free from attachment and desire free.

It does not judge nor criticize in any way,
Free from preconception, true in all its way,
And the secret of life within contains.

It holds the purity and freshness of the soul,
The Universe and universal love as Whole;
Heart is Truth at the centre of my soul.

    (Why don't the verification codes work reliably? !) This poem at least in part suggests Buddhist non-attachment, but on the whole I don't consider it a Buddhist poem. Buddhism rejects desire; I believe this poem wants to purify it. The key line is the last one: HEART IS TRUTH AT THE CENTER OF MY SOUL. It fuses four positive words - heart, truth, center, soul - together they point to integrity, wholeness - There are any number of abstract words to identify the ideas here, but what matters is the experience makes its own case and convinces even a skeptical reader.

    lovely lines...
    the poem is simple and charming...it gives so much substance to an anatomical entity.
    a fresh way of looking at it...a bit separate from the traditional purely poetic rendering we so often see

    Beautiful poem. Very true said....Heart is Truth at the centre of my soul.
    It should be free from any desire or attachment to hold the purity and freshness of soul. Thoughtful write and very true said, to lead a pleasant life one should be free from desire. There will be no sufferings... Loved the way you presented. (Report) Reply
