In responding to a previous comment, it highlighted something that writing this blog has brought into sharp focus; the constant inner battle between my instinct and my intellect.
I understand a lot of what makes me feel better, helps make me a better version of who I am, and the people and processes that enrich my life. I can discuss, at length, the ideal mental attitude to help me achieve both physical and emotional harmony.( or a move in that direction anyway)
So, WHY, would someone please explain to me, does this process go into short-circuit somewhere in my body?
Can our heads and our hearts ever work in “sync” or are they mutually exclusive processes?
During a deep and meaningful conversation with a good friend we discussed protecting our “souls”, the essence of who we are, and how much we risk when we love someone or something. So, if my head were in control what would I do? Isolate myself? Put a ring of steel around my heart so I didn’t suffer hurt or humiliation?
My instinct yells “NO”! With every pore of my being, and accepting of the strife and stress that comes with it, NO!
Physical and emotional harmony are wonderful ideals; something to aspire to and work towards, but love and life are worth the risks.
