“Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.”
Human heart in literature is mind in medical science. Now whatever it is, we need to know this fact that our heart is a storehouse where many things can be stuffed in or stored.
Me being a counselor keep many secrets in my heart. Secrets of others or confidential matters concerning others I keep in my heart closed and safe.
Confidentiality is an very important ethics and elements of any sort of counseling. But in general also when we share our heart with somebody we expect he or she should keep my secret confidential and safe within his/her heart. And I need to do the same when somebody shares very personal and private with me.
I understand ‘guarding our heart’ can also mean maintaining confidentiality against spreading rumors and gossiping.
We will talk more about our heart in the coming days…
