"Head and Heart"

 

Intellect is always asking questions. It is as it should be. It needs to grow, evolve, and mature. But it tends to get arrogant.

“Heart” knows – just knows. If only it is open and humble and listens without judgement and without avoiding or suppressing, things can be so much better.  It needs to calm and transform.

Intellect needs to check with the “heart”. The “heart” needs to know its weakness and listen to the intellect. We need both.

when they are balanced, life runs like a chariot on a smooth pathway – just as Vedic texts of the east tell us and just as Plato envisioned in the western tradition.

That does not mean that there will be no ups and downs or happiness and sadness. They will be there. But they can be handled and managed better with equanimity.
