project WORLDVIEW worldview themes         copyright 2019            Home

In the playing cards scheme for classifying worldview themes*, themes associated with the heart symbol involve an individual’s interaction with another individual (or with himself or herself) with respect to the underlying driving motivation and the extent to which thinking, feeling, and doing--and behaviors associated with these--are under control. These themes are loosely associated with "feeling" in the Thinking / Feeling / Joining / Doing way of looking at the world.

Thoughts to Take With You:  

...The best way to live attuning yourself to...the feeling in your heart; your highest sense of purpose; a worldview larger than yourself... from Deepak Chopra
(in his blog: "If I were 22: The Wisdom of Uncertainty")
"Humbly Grateful or Grumbly Hateful?" from bumpersticker, author unknown
"Encourage your hopes, not your fears!" from bumpersticker, author unknown
"What wisdom can you find that is greater than kindness?" from bumpersticker, author unknown
"Stereotypes dehumanize!" from bumpersticker, author unknown
"Writing is an attempt to understand one's own circumstance and to clarify the confusion of existence" Isabel Allende

"In the course of psychotherapy most therapists will come to recognize how a patient views the world...It is essential that therapists arrive at this knowledge, for the worldview of patients is always an essential part of their problems, and a correction in their worldview is necessary for their cure"

M. Scott Peck (in The Road Less Traveled)

"Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today?
Today is a gift. That's why we call it the present."

Babatunde Olatunji
"Forgiveness is not an occasional act; it is a permanent attitude"


Martin Luther King, Jr. 
"Always feel that your life has ultimate significance"


Martin Luther King, Jr. 
"When we see others as the enemy, we risk becoming what we hate. When we oppress others, we end up oppressing ourselves. All of our humanity is dependent upon recognizing the humanity in others.”  Desmond Tutu
"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love--for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite." Nelson Mandela
"Maybe a person doesn't have a soul of his own, only a piece of a big soul" John Steinbeck (in The Grapes of Wrath)

Caution: "As you shop in 'The Reality Marketplace' avoid spending your 'reality cash' too early,  before you have seen everything!” from Coming of Age in the Global Village,  by Stephen P. Cook,  with Donella H. Meadows.

In the alternate TFJD code scheme for classifying worldview themes, themes associated with hearts generally (but not always!) tend to have higher F (feeling) scores.
