Heard it said that the heart has a mind of its own. Sounds paradoxical. Mind is logical, unfeeling. Heart is feeling, not analytical. Two different places in me.
But I don’t think I can separate either. My decisions are a head thing that is guided by my heart; my feelings are a heart thing that are actioned by my mind.
Guess the heart has a mind of its own and the mind has a heart of its own.
Or is it that they work in tandem? A decision made without consulting the heart may seem brutal. A feeling that overflows without reason can seem excessive.
Perhaps the threefold chord is needed. A mind and heart ruled not by themselves, but by the Holy Spirit. Saves me from uncaring logic and unrestrained sentimentality.
