    I was wondering if anyone could share their

    thoughts about the metaphorical "heart". We all know that a literal heart is a muscle that circulates blood. The metaphorical heart is the alleged source of love, compassion, sympathy and so on. If it truly exists. If so in what in what way does it exists. Further more what...

    My Own Heart

    I believe wholly 100% in following your heart (in most cases), yet I find it so difficult to follow my own. I've been working on that a bit the past year or so, doing things I've always wanted to, but never had the courage (or opportunity) to do, but there are so many other ways...

    The mind can complicate everything

    but the heart simply knows if it feels right or wrong. That doesn't mean don't think at all...It means, don't ignore your heart. It is your conscience, your truth, and your path.

    How Do I Do That?

    When people say to me that I should follow my heart, or my inner "something", I always try to figure out how I do that. As if there were a how  to do list, but when we try to find a method for it, or define what it means, we are not following our heart anymore. Right ? Sometimes...

    It's Ok To Follow Your Heart

    Your first thoughts on a subject should assist

    you on your deciding what to do in so many situations, because your heart first receives the stimulae and only after it has considered it does your brain get involved and compare experiences and history.

    Follow Your Heart, But Don't Forget To Take Your Brain

    Many times in my life I neither followed my heart nor used my brain to make some decisions. I really don't know why I did what I did, but I'm sure it was based partly in fear and anxiety, or just giving up on finding the right person. Now I've learned what consequences those...
