“Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.”Prov 4:23
Visitors to Union Square in Manhattan, NYC are likely to encounter the street performer, Matthew Silver. Described by one YouTube contributor as, “A guy who runs around NYC in his underwear saying and doing radical things,” Matthew paints himself as a, “cosmic trickster opening up the love portal to show us we are all one.”
While his antics are often punctuated with bizarre behavior and crude humor, meant to call attention to his message, Mr. Silver also speaks with amazing philosophical eloquence. Here is a popular example:
“You’re already doing…you’re always doing what’s in your heart; you can’t get away from your heart.”Matthew Silver
Another fairly famous guy, who said some pretty amazing things agrees:
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”Jesus Christ (Matthew 6:21)
Thoughts like these beg the question: What are we putting first in our lives?
