A journey of the heart

This is the excerpt for your very first post.

This is why I tell people to stay in the heart and not in the mind. The heart knows how to identify itself with the Divine, with the highest, with the farthest, the inmost. For the mind it is not so. The mind tries to identify itself with an object, with a person, with something limited. But this identification is not pure or complete. When the mind tries to identify, the mind looks at the object with an eye of hesitation, if not actual suspicion. But when the heart wants to identify itself with something or someone, it uses the feeling of love, of oneness. When the heart wants to see something it sees it unreservedly. When the mind wants to see something, it tries to delay and separate. The heart simplifies; the mind complicates. The mind gets pleasure in things that are complicated and confused; the heart gets joy in things that are simple. Sri Chinmoy
