Full Belly, Happy Heart (1/5)

heart and gutsThe heart and the stomach are very much connected, for example, our brain can mix up pain signals from both organs confusing a heart attack with heartburn (a form of indigestion). In fact, mistakes in nutrition could lead to heart disease. I won’t get into the science of body organs interaction.

Here, I refer to the heart as the center of emotions and I will compare it to the digestive organ that allows our body to draw nutritional value of foods.

Just like in eating we need a diet and limits combined with exercise, we need guidelines, restrictions and control in our emotions combined with actions that develop a well-trained character.

I just started thinking about how the heart and the stomach are very similar in needing constant refilling, but it is a great thing when they are full!

“Seize Life! Eat bread with gusto, Drink wine with a robust heart. Oh Yes – God takes pleasure in your pleasure!”                                   Ecclesiastes 9:7 (MSG Bible)
