Why can't learn to listen to both our hearts and minds, instead of only listening to one?

As human beings, we tend to listen to our hearts all the time, why cant we balance out the two? Descions may then be easier if we know how to handle them

  • Apr 22 2012: I think the mind creates this duality. In reality it is the same logic that is driving us to think that there should be something better than me ( mind ). At the same time it makes us think as a heart and say the mind is a lesser ( as in bad ) version of me. The truth is at a much higher level of cognition and appears when we silence the mind. But immediate question that your mind puts is, but is it possible to maintain this state for long. The answer is to just realize this and smile at yourself :)

    Had a post on this lines long back.
