I was so fascinated by the question “what helps us fall in love…our brain or our heart?” That I thought about it and I wondered where humans feel love? Why does love relate more to the heart and not the brain? The answer to the question is within the purview of human knowledge. From my understanding of medicine or even basic biology, the celebrum is a part of the central nervous system where the various levels of integrations are performed, depending on the part of the brain involved. While the heart acts like a pump that pumps blood to the different parts of the body.

In essence, the heart is a component of the cardiovascular system while the brain is a component of the nervous system. The two systems perform different functions though they depend on each other. For instance, the brain receives blood, while the heart gets innervations. We think and reason with our head, and we also store some information, as a memory in it. Therefore, for one to love one must know why it is so, which means one thinks about a person or an object, and it attributes that may be unique. One can only have affection for what one has seen, felt, or heard, or, at least, what one knows and believes, even if it is invisible to the eyes.

The art of love is said to start with the unique senses connected to the brain. Even one that is blind and deaf does get into the love arena at least such a one can feel or smell thing or being and then fall in love. Then if the brain is necessary for the initiation of love, why is the heart more connected with love especially, in literary? I can say that if love must be in pristine condition, then it must be kept in the cardiac area and not in the brain.

It is true that love is blind and some say that lovers are fools. The statement means that lover no longer uses their brain. They use their heart. Lovers do not count wrongs; they overlook all things that would hinder their love for each other. That is why they do not use their brain to think and check the wrongs things done or evil done to them, so they are fools because fools are those asked to use their head.

The heart of anything is an essential part of it. Therefore, only someone or anything that is so important can be kept in it, which is a treasure store. We keep love in our heart to sustain it if indeed we want it to last forever. Then we can say, “For as long as my heart beats, I will always love you.”

We cannot see love; it is abstract, an emotion which we know exists because we feel it and we feel and keep such things in the heart which is a part of the body that, literarily, understands, and feels sturdy emotions. Therefore, it is a place we sense and keep something we do not want to lose because we want to keep it for a lifetime.

Finally, it is compelling to know that the brain starts the initiation of love, but the heart is the place we feel and keep love if we want it to be a love that will last forever.

The heart is the treasure store of true lovers.
