Call Me Heartless

Two sides of our brain: the right is for creativity and the left for logic.  I have both the last time I checked, but I swear my left brain crowds out my right most of the time.  Why do I say that?

Take for example the question of what is my favorite color?  Simple question you would think, but it takes me a long time to answer.  I would have to think about it.  Is the question about my clothing choices? the exterior of the car I like to drive?  Or the flavor of my favor ice cream, so on.

And worse yet if you were a panhandler.  Because, I believe giving money to panhandlers would only contribute to their dependency on others.  So nada. Again, my left brain would argue louder than my right.

Trouble is that I also believe in concepts like compassion and gratitude.  Where do they fall? Left brain? Or right? Somewhere else completely?

When do you use your heart versus your head?

  1. I tend to listen to my head more than my heart, but when I’m listening deeply it comes from the soul.

      Good point, Elysha. There are many levels of listening. By listening deeply, you are paying attention to not only the infomational content but also the emotional and/or spiritual aspects as well.
