Heart v/s Head

Hello readers.

When Charles Dicken said this line in his novel “There is a wisdom of head and there is a wisdom of heart.” The only thing meant in this line was, he has solved the conflict between the heart and the head. The head always speaks about the things that are not emotionally attached i.e. which have no connection with the emotions.

The decisions you make, the choices you make, can be from both your heart / head, but more or less time it always is from your head. And when it comes to your heart, it doesn’t calculate manipulate or extract the finance, text and results, rather it follows your intuition, your thoughts, your will to do something, to go and ask about something.

To follow your dreams, sometimes people say “Take your brain (or head) with your heart”. If your heart is as pure as the bliss of sunshine, then it will teach you to find your pure destination breaking through the darkness too. To get a clear meaning think of the last decision you made.

Is that what your mind said at that time? or Is that what your heart said at the time?. In common, we can say it’s a parallel line drawn between both of them. To change the world, all you need is a pure heart, a great soul and the belief that you can do that.

In a gentle way you can shake the world.

– Mahatma Gandhi

Think about the wonder. The biological sense of the brain is to be associated with the cognitive abilities, rational, emotional thinking. And of heart, is to purify and circulate the blood throughout the body. In reality, they are way more complicated.

When your mind says give up, your heart says there is something out there worth chasing.

When your mind asks for solution problem, your heart starts complaining and sometimes hoping for some miracle to happen.

When your mind says take up the responsibilities, your heart says it’s ok will do it some another time.

When your mind worries about the financial situation, your heart says buy some stuff and clear the stress.

When your mind says you to move on, your heart still clings on the hope that they might change

In the worst scenario, your brain says ‘if you love again I kill you’ and your heart says ‘if I don’t I’ll be dead.’

When your mind ask you why do you still keep trying and end up breaking each time, your heart answers ‘failure is the stepping stone to success’.

The heart holds the answers the brain refuses to see.

They say if your heart stops you will stop. But in reality there is a lot more science behind it. Your heart actually sends far more signals to your brain, then your brain sends to your heart. Research has shown that the heart communicates to the brain in four major ways: neurologically (through the transmission of nerve impulses), biochemically (via hormones and neurotransmitters), biophysically (through pressure waves) and energetically (through electromagnetic field interactions). Communication along all these conduits significantly affects the brain’s activity. Moreover, research shows that messages the heart sends the brain can also affect performance.

I don’t know how much of the above information is true. If it’s researched then it might be true just not clarified how much. It is just the tip of an iceberg.

If we go on discussing about the battle between our heart and our mind, it may go on and on and on. It is one of those never ending discussions. We can create teams and go on debating on the subject too. The topic will be which is better at decision making, heart or the mind. Only satisfying answer is YOU. Because it’s you who have both heart and mind in you, the only thing you need to know, is to control both of them and let them synchronise.

There are so many fun facts about our heart and the mind and we have psychological facts too. In some other blog, I will try and write about some fun and psychological facts between head and heart. I’m not completely sure when but I will do try. These are my perspectives and are not intended for any conclusion. Until then, I’ll take a leave.

And Thanks.😇
