Mind and Heart

The first thing that comes to my mind when I think about them is actually nothing. I am unable to relate the two things together, yes but individually I know them very well.

Whenever your heart likes something, is it necessary that your mind will also direct you to the same thing. And whenever your mind tells you to do something is it necessary that heart would love to do it all the time. It happens that sometimes you know it is the right thing to do (your mind says this), but you become lazy in doing that (your heart doesn’t like that idea). It happens that at times you wanted to buy that sweet little soft toy for your cute and lovable daughter (your heart is dying to get this done from you), but you did not because it comes under your category of over expense (mind restraints you from buying that).

There are situations also when you get deeply involved in some activity, oblivious of the things and people around you; this is the time where your mind and heart synchronizes with each other.
One can also not exclude the time from his life when you had not talked to anybody, and were just in yourself. Actually not even in yourself, you were in some other world as you didn’t know what was going on inside you. That was the time when your mind and heart were jumping over each other. That was the time when you sometimes didn’t realize what you were speaking to other people, to those who were not at all connected to the events happening inside your mind and heart. It becomes the reason of unnecessary confusion and dismay between the two people, who actually had got nothing to do with the wrong that had happened in their lives.

I just wanted to know more about the relationship of mind and heart and how it affects our daily life, and by writing this I am somehow expecting that it may clear up this thought to an improved extent.

Can anybody, help me define the true meaning of love??? Love here signifies to that mysterious thing that exists between normal specie and the fairer specie.

There are many thoughts around it, like feeling good about each other, caring about each other, becoming a best friend with each other, becoming the only person in each other’s life with whom you speak out anything and everything, and there can be many more interpretations. But, how does this happens??/

People might think that this post is getting strayed with this love and bullshit. But, actually it has got a very significant relationship with the behavior of your heart and mind. Unless the synchronization of your heart and mind crosses that final threshold, you can not be in love with anybody. It is when you keep thinking about somebody so profoundly that wherever you go, you will find her/him only. It happens because your mind only wants to see that person wherever you go (mind keeps thinking about that person only), and your heart fully supports your thoughts to the immeasurable level.

Our news papers have always informed us about love birds, or a lover killing his girlfriend and all that crap. This is a result of that intense relationship of heart and mind. It is not necessary that other person will also love you; it entirely depends on that person’s thoughts and thinking pattern. The incidents that we hear are the consequence of mind and heart synchronization not coming in the actual form( this is the one sided love story)

This can also be supportive in explaining why arrange marriages are also successful?? In such cases you have got no option but to think about each other only, and unknowingly after some time you start loving that person. One thing is sure that heart doesn’t even take a second to like somebody (what is known as love at first sight), but heart takes time to convince mind, and then true love happens. Divorce is the result, when it happens the other way round.

Let us now bring a mathematical turn into this mind and heart relationship. With love there were two variables that is there were two sets of mind and heart. Equation always becomes easy to deal with one set or one variable, how we started this post. We in our daily lives become use to of certain routine, like I know a person who always sleeps on a bed made of cotton, and a girl who always takes a bath with Dove, and also a person who just cannot imagine himself taking his lunch, dinner without rice. I think these behaviors exist only because they have convinced their mind and heart to do it in that way only.

There is a other picture also, where you see a person inclined towards only hurting others, one of the category is criminal. This I think also happens because of a biased state of mind and heart, and it becomes more dramatic and troublesome when you don't know that something of this kind actually exists.

These mind and heart behaviours actually control our lives, and i believe that it is important for us to understand and realize them. I am still exploring the way to direct these mind and heart beaviour to the way we want at a particular time.

One of the ways that I presume  is through meditation.

To be continued……..

PS:  I have written this post as I was going through an unpredictable stage of mind and heart, and so I just thought to clear it up.

Let me know what you think

  1. Who can define love???

    It's better if we don't try to understand it and just live. It will get more complicated if we try to do it. More understanding results in more expectations, making life all the more difficult.

    It's true that it may increase expectations, and one should just live his/her life, but sometimes there is a need to understand more, it can help also and can be otherwise also.......depends on an individual....thanks for sharing ur views:)
