The Heart Works Best in Mime


Drawing from The Principles of Light and Color by Edwin D Babbitt, 1878

Words get in the way when we try to speak from the heart. How are we to know that the mere mention of the color purple conjures up childhood horrors for one person when it is one of our favorite colors?

We use our eyes to communicate emotions and feelings. They are less likely to lie, or unintentionally deceive.

Our brains think they know everything about sickness of the heart, as though it were just another machine pumping blood for us at our brains’ commands. But there is a mystery to the heart that can never be known by the mind. The heart works best by showing what it wants.
