One might think, that might is mighty important,
When seeking the approach, to best procure treasure,
One side lays siege, while the other lies dormant,
Is overcome and suffers defeats beyond measure.
One feels victorious, the other defeated,
Though both are cheated, in this plunderous art,
Prolonging this charade, both will be depleted,
‘Til the mind, finally makes peace with the heart.
The mind and the heart are known as long time adversaries, they have been pitted against each other time and time again! Their needs are deemed incompatible to one another, either you champion the mind, or the heart, but never the twain shall meet, except in war, or so we are told.
Sure, knowledge and wisdom are great pursuits, love and empathy have the power to heal the deepest of wounds. These treasures are excellent catalysts for change, but we need to ensure that we are not limiting our own potential.
You can be both a seeker of truth, and a healer of the World’s pain. You can both expand your mind and fill your heart with so much love, that it overflows and touches the lives of others. We are told that the mind and heart don’t go together, but in reality, this is where our true strength lies!
Achieving these goals simultaneously is exactly what we are here for, to grow and to heal, to evolve our minds and to share love and good will. We should be the change we want to see in the World, and use all of these positive tools at our disposal, in doing so. Love to think, and think about love. Be smart, and be kind and loving.
Love and Respect always,
