Chapter 9, Page 4, Book 16

The mind forgets but the heart always remembers.


September 4th - heart and mind

What the mind attends to, the mind considers. What the mind constantly considers, the mind believes. What the mind believes, the mind eventually does.

We often say we love with our heart and think with our mind. Yet our minds encounter and process both thoughts and feelings. Our minds give shape to what we say and how we act.

Our head may be telling us one thing while our heart is nudging us toward another. Some people lose the mind and get caught up in the heart. Others forget about the heart and become wrapped up in the mind. Neither way is good.  

We need both - the heart and the mind working together.  No matter how your keep your mind busy, it will still find space for you to think of what your heart has been missing.

What you are thinking, what shape your mind is in, is what makes the biggest difference of all.

So true we have to have our hearts and our minds working together. Either one of them out of disorder can cause problems with how we process things or react to things.



"you havev to think of what your heart has been missing and FIND it."

I think we've always been conditioned to believe it's one or another ... head OR heart. No matter the circumstance, using both our head AND heart, I believe, results in a satisfying conclusion.
Now, I just need to remember that and practice it!
