The „heart“ symbol – let’s recall its true meaning

юли 28, 2017

I am starting this publication with a well-known, but pretty relevant joke: a cardiovascular surgeon enters a gift shop and tells the seller:

  • Give me that big pink ass.

She replies:

  • This is a heart, not an ass!
  • I have been healing hearts for the last twenty years and I know their shape, so I tell you to give me that big pink ass!

It is definitely clear to everyone that the „heart“ symbol


is in no way related to the anatomical heart, which looks in the following way:


In this case we deal with a fabrication or with a metaphor, or most probably – both of them.

Nowadays the „heart“symbol is related to affection, good feelings and even love. And numerous authors and gurus talk abot this symbol in a relation to terms as sublime, pure and unconditional love.

Such we are, influenced by literature and art works. Of course, there is no sure way that a novel or a poem may be our guideline to gain knowledge and understanding, because their basic aim is to be intriguing and/or beutiful. Therefore nowadays we see countless „hearts“ to be indiscriminately placed all over to such an extent that sometimes people are speechless, just placing a „heart“ as a comment and somehow they think that they express love or affection.

Ah, everything has been written in Magura – there every symbol has its graphical origin and one can find its meaning in a justified way, but Magura is not popular and thus justification remain unknown.


A whole group of symbols originate from the sun (the painting, not necessarily the astronomical Sun), which is their source and origin. These symbols are its rays, i.e. they are energy or spirit in its various states.


Add „body“ to these symbols and you will get the respective states of the soul which is a denser manifestation of spirit. The soul is very similat to the body according to Magura and therefore human figurec can be read both as the body and the soul.

The important fact here is that the „heart“ symbols do not originate directly from the source (the sun), because it does not contain such a shape, but anyway „heart“ symbols appear at a certain moment.



Therefore, states of spirit, characterized by the „heart“ shape, do not originate from the source, but they come into existence in another way on a later stage – they are the product of something else.

Let’s see this.

Initially there were only symbols of spirit, which could turn into the various states of the soul:


When we talk about the soul, the arms around the head are the manifestation of spirit as consciousness. Thus the various shapes of the arms around the head indicate various attitudes of consciousness and their respective states of spirit, which is being manifested through the given soul.


This here is the row of development of spirit and consciousness. We have the seed (1), the spirit with fate (2), the newborn (3), the uneducated (4), the educated (5), the creatively concentrated (6), the conscious (7), the experimentator (8) and the one who strives for favorable and pleasant acquisitions and experience (9).

With the development of the consciousness the moment comes when it starts noticing and therefore it starts seeing the world around. Then it starts wanting.


On the map of the paintings of Magura it is clearly visible that the „heart“ shape of the consciusness has a limited application – it appears as a stage of development of spirit and consciousness, and then it is depleted and stops being in use. Therefore, the „heart“ shape is not initial, but it is a product of existence and development of spirit and consciousness as well as their characteristic, their state for a period.

In Magura, consciousness may have a number of versions:


Consciousness of type 1 is awke, but closed. It is isolated from the outer world and reflects on its internnals.

Types 4 and 5 are a little bit higher states of consciousness. It is open and interacts with the world, but the ends pointing inside mean, that it wants to get, to obtain. This is the origin of the „heart“ shape and it means Ï want to take, I want to obtain“.

Type 2 is the next, still higher state of consciousness. It observes the world without striving to change it – nor it wants to take, neither it wants to give.

Type 3 is the highest state of consciusness. The ends pointing outwards mean, that it gives from itself. This type of conscousness is present only in the last paintings, where eternal life and enlightenment are reached.

The taking or „heart“-shaped state of consciusness is present only in the initial stages of the paintings, immediately after the creation of the educated and civilized people. This is a kind of consciousness which has started to notice and see and therefore it has become greedy, because it wants to have what it sees.

After the first appearance of the „heart“-shaped consciousness there are some 20 meters of walls on which all human figures have their arms around the head in a „heart“ shape. Along this wall, the „heart“ modus of development and interaction is depleted. After this it is no more present. Thus we find out that the „heart“ symbol and its respective modus of interaction are not initial nor eternal and obviously they are not related to love. After the deplition of the „heart“ shape, there is the sudden appearance of this:


It means that man (his spirit and consciousness) has been saturated with taking and its consequences, has relaxed, has „opened his eyes“ even more, has cleaned up his mind and now he only observes.

In Magura we see the „heart“ shape to originate as an intermediate stage of the development with the meaning of wanting, lust.

In Bulgarian language we have very deep knowledge and understanding on the nature of things which is present in our words. I will demonstrate a part of it in a while.

The word happiness is related to the „heart“. In Bulgarian happiness is щастие [shtastie] and it derives from the verb ща [shta] which means to want, to lust. Therefore щастие (happiness) is the state of saturation of our щения [shteniya] (desires, intentions, hunger, lust).

Thus we go back to the „heart“ which is the symbol of desires.

Yes, long time ago I wondered a lot about the origin of this „heart“ symbol – why exactly this shape, time of irigin, etc. There was no way to answer my questions before I went to Magura cave. The cave paintings gave me knowledge about it in a clear and definitive way.

As you can see, the „heart“ symbol is not related to the anatomical heart, but rather it is a metaphor to express a certain state of spirit and consciousness. But what is the origin of the idea that the heart is related to feelings? It is very simple. We notice that our anatomical heart reacts to feelings changing the rate of beating, making it slower or faster. Thus we accept the sequence to be the cause. But the heart simply reacts, it is not the cause. The cause and the place of origin of feelings and emotions is the thyroid gland. Glands create our states and chakras are related to glands not to internal organs. Feelings and emotions originate in the thyroid gland – it creates and governs them – it manages the speed of work of the heart. Those, who have suffered problems with their thryoid gland, can confirm this from their own experience. But as we do not feel the work of the gland, but we feel only the work of the heart, we reamin with the impression that feelings are related to the heart. Even a bigger deception – that the heart creates the feelings including love.


The shape of the thyroid gland is way more similar to the „heart“ than the shape of the anatomical heart.

But the „heart“ is a vessel, it is a store and wolume.

In ancient times people thought that thoughts, intentions, desired are found in the „heart“. In Egyptian mythology the soul of the dead person starts walking in the afterlife and is met by the goddess Ma’at, who uses sclaes to compare the weight of his heart and a feather. If the heart is heavier than a feather, the soul goes to the hell. It will weigh more, if it is full of lust, desires, thougths, intentions. If the heart is as light as the feather, the soul goes to the heaven. This is because the heart is empty and clean.

You understand it very easily that an anatomical heart can not be a part of this story, because for sure it wighs more than a feather and can not be brought to the afterlife together with the soul. Obviously the word „heart“ here stands for an energetic and infomational structure of the same density as the soul.

Thus we see the „heart“ in the role of a haunt for dirt. The only place where the metaphoric dirt may haunt is our mind and you see in Magura that it is related to the symbol of consciousness. It is normal the „heart“ to be a haunt. beacause its shape is such that it only takes in and lets nothing out. This such type of consciousness which only wants to obtain.

We contain our karma in our „hearts“, because this is what makes the choice whether we go to hell or to heaven. Therefore the „heart“ is correctly related to the soul, because soul is the record of us. Ou record contains information of us – our intentions, passions, way of thinking, fate.

In Bulgarian language there is more wisdom accoring to the „heart“, which is coherent with the mythology of Ancient Egypt.

For example, we say „I harbour things in my heart“, „I keep it in my heart“, meaning that desires, pains, hopes are in our „heart“. Yes, they are really there.

But we also have the expression „with a clear heart“ as well as чистосърдечно (again meaning with a clear heart), which completely thoroughly points to the necessary direction of development.

You already understand it very clearly that the „heart“ and the heart have never been symbols of love, not even to mention pure and sublime love. The „heart“ is an attitude of taking and obtaining. In alchemy this symbol is related to sulphuric acid and gall. Living and doing from heart is a bad story indeed, but it is also an honest declaration by the one who states it – by doind something from his heart he does it passionately, because he desires to obtain something through his deeds.

I supply more wisdom from Bulgarial language. Our old word for heart (сърце) used to be сърдце [sardtse] – this is the origin of the word сърдечен [sardetchen] (from heart) but also of the verb сърдя се [sardya se] which means to get angry. And who gets angry? It is the one who does not get what he wants to get. You see it – everything is coherent when you work with the oldest sources of knowledge.

How many gurus, books and lections tell us so passionately about the heart, about love and enlightenment – terms which have nothing to do with one another, but they keep stating that the heart is the key.

You saw that the „heart“-shaped state of spirit does not originate from the god (the sun) and therefore it is not the key to return to the source as it does not belong there. The last of the human figures, which have all reached the enlightenment and the eternal life, contain not even a single trace of any „heart“ shape. They do the opposite – their hands point outwards. Therefore love is the opposite of the „heart“.

Oh, sacred stupidity, which gets eliminated by the shine of Magura, as sun rays, getting into a sour room, eliminate the mold! Evaporate and do not interfere with our concepts and ideas!

So, if you ever here a guru talking of the „heart“ as of love, this guru is not really initiated, but he only talks general bullshit, as much as not to fall asleep or as much as to free you of your money. But if you hear him talking of cleaning your heart, of opening it for the light to come inside, to overcome your desires, this one has an idea.
Hah, if he talks of both at the same time – he has read books but never thought on what he has read.
