The Source of Christian Love Within Us. Where is the 'Heart'?

Where is the heart (mentioned almost 1,000 times in the Bible)—from where LIFE/rivers of living water should flow in born-again believers?
This is the area that God wants us to keep especially clean—very pretty—pure—so His love can flow!
It’s lower than we think, I think. But may also include the actual heart, which is more than a pump.
This has many ramifications. One of which is achieving real freedom—deep within! And could healing waters come from here too?
I think this may be the source of the love of Jesus within us.  May we learn to flow in it.
Let us be ONE! : )
Consider John 7:38, literally:
