This we now know:

The heart is central. It matters – deeply.

When we see with the eyes of the heart, which is to say, when we see mythically, we begin to awaken, and what we discover is that things are not what they seem. We are at war. We must fight for the life God intends for us, which is to say: we must fight for our heart, for it is the wellspring of that life within us.

— John Eldredge | Waking the Dead
