Purpose of the mind is to guide the heart but not instruct it
Mind’s judgement is to find the areas of improvement and not quit or criticize
Mind is to guide towards the right things but let the heart take on from there onwards
Mind can provide the data and analysis but let heart decide what’s the best
Mind can think but let the heart interpret it
Mind can be brilliant but let the heart be compassionate
Mind can be fast but let the heart slow it down
Mind can find problems and solutions but let the heart decide when and where to use it
Mind can react to pain but let the heart bear the pain
Mind can react -’fight or flight’ but let the heart relax
Mind can compete but let the heart just be itself
Mind can have plans but let the heart be spontaneous
Mind can argue, reason, debate but let the heart understand
Mind can revenge but let the heart forgive
Mind can remember but let the heart forget
Mind can choose but let the heart accept whatever comes
Mind can hate but let the heart love
Mind can imagine but let the heart feel
Mind can be big but let the heart be small
Mind can be happy with the status, money and talent but let the heart be simple and uncomplicated
Mind can be overwhelmed with things to do but let the heart be happy in whatever little it can do
Mind can give up but let the heart persist
Mind can say – ‘can’t do it’ but let the heart say -’one more time’
Let the mind not disturb the heart too much and let it find its peace in the calmness of heart
… let the heart be heart and mind be mind…
… accept what they are .. and live happily with the two …
Way of the heart

Love can neither be created, nor destroyed. It has existed since eternity and will continue to exist till eternity. Love can be denied, it can be ignored, but it will not cease to exist. It may change form, it may change subjects (people) but it will always exist.
Love is a fundamental part of everyone’s psyche – from plants to animals, from human beings to gods. It is just like a energy which unites everything in the whole universe. Love is a fundamental force which makes us think, act, behave in a certain way. Love never ceases to exist, it will find its way out in one form or another. Sometimes, in loving another person when one leaves us, sometimes in the work we love, sometimes in care for the person, sometimes in taking care of ourselves, sometimes in spiritual endeavors and in many other forms which we appreciate.
