Open Call for Entries: HEART
The heart is a
symbol of love--romance at Valentines day. The classic heart
shape resembles not the human heart, but ideals of the female
body. In Old English,1000 years ago, heart carried the notion of
memory, the seat of mental faculties. This survives in our
expression of learning something by heart.
And in all Asian languages the word for Mind is the same as the word
for Heart--hard to imagine in the West, where we firmly place our minds
and identity in our heads.
Deadline: Jan. 29 Opening Feb. 24
The Latin root of courage,
typically a masculine concept, is heart; the true heart unites love and
bravery. The heart chakra is the center of the body, where spirit meets
form, where masculine meets feminine, and the energy is of balance and
integration. In Sanskrit, it means "un-struck"--the celestial
sound ringing without the clash of opposites.
