Does our heart know more than our head?
Or is it the other way around?
Which one will lead to more happiness, purpose, and fulfillment?
This is not about neglecting a part of us.
Instead, it’s about using everything at our disposal.
We have a head and a heart for a reason. They both help in their own way.
When we fall in love, we feel out heart flutter, beat loudly or leap for joy; when we’re rejected, our heart breaks. We are called heartless or cold-hearted when we show no care or love…and big-hearted when we extend our concern to others. We “take things to heart” or “talk heart-to-heart” about deeply personal issues. We love someone “from the bottom of our heart” but are half-hearted about something when we’re emotionally uninvolved. We experience out heart as the center of our feelings. We know this instinctively, as we always physically point to our heart when we say “I” or want to express my deeper feelings.
While the mind is the content of who we are, our heart is the essence!
Which wins: the heart or the head?
That is your decision – you have free will but For me it’s the heart. As your true self, your spiritual core, your heart is connected to something much bigger. It is energy, it flows and knows where you’re meant to go, even if it doesn’t lay out the steps (as the head will beg it to do). The head, in it’s more logical, step-by-step approach, is not aware of the bigger picture and panics when it cannot see the process or map laid out ahead of it. It doesn’t know what your soul is here to do, what you’re meant to learn. The head is fearful, and often convinces you to stay where it knows how to be in control. It works hard to convince you to listen to and follow it, rather than your heart.
When faced with a decision or conflict, your mind may come up with numerous, different and quite logical reasons why you should act as it advises, but if you listen to and trust your heart however illogical or irrational it may seem it is usually right and you are happier as a result.
A good heart is better than all the heads in the world!
