When it comes to love, there doesn't seem to be a right answer. On matters of the heart and mind, there are many gray areas. Your mind wants to be logical, think things through, your heart want happiness and comfort, but which do you follow? Love is not logical, it's not a thought, it is a feeling..an experience..an adventure..Do you take the straight path (mind) or the mountainous curvy path (heart)? Does the heart take into consideration what the mind knows? What if what you think you know is wrong and you can't prove it? What if your heart is blinded by the desire of holding onto that particular one's affection? I could go on with a list of "what-if's", but you would be reading forever. I don't have an answer for my own question, maybe no one does.
Tough separating the mind from body. Woman will not agree but emotion is the product of the mind as what is of consequence. Have found myself that intuition is the best guide. But what is the biggest hindrance of intuition is mind.
When I was young I followed my heart. But now that I know better I follow my mind,,, always!
I agree with you Bill Manning. When we are young I don't think we utilize our common sense much and then we grow up and older and wonder what the heck we were thinking back in the day! We weren't thinking! Life is better now that I use my mind more than my heart.
I humbly submit that if it is love, mind has no business even considering being in the neighbourhood
In my experience, the heart is an unreliable judge with no self-preservation instinct. I let the mind intercede on its behalf, after a brief consultation between the two. If the mind approves, the heart can have its way... but occassionally it needs to intersect with the mind for a spot check!
I have always followed my heart. Yes, it did'nt always turned out the way I wanted it to be but I have no regrets because despite the pain, I still have the memories that make me smile every once in a while..
.....you need a good balance of both the heart & mind. But what Ive learnt, when it comes to love, you need to apply some wisdom which requires the mind.
the heart wins everytime, at least in your mind! It is perfectly possible to be in a sensible relationship but have your heart filled by someone else. This is a private relationship that dosen't exist in reality, just in your mind. I have probably said too much....
Leading with your heart wildly without the mind is detrimental to one's existence.
Compromise/happy medium must be found to have balance. Love can be costly, but don't have to be dangerous.

People often ask the question: Should I follow my heart or my mind? Well aren't they one in the same? Or does one lead the other in making some decisions? If one leads the other, is it our heart that leads, or is it our...

Do you listen to your gut instinct or for some women they call it woman's intuition?Have you ever had a feeling that something really just didn't feel right? I'm going through this right now, everything says...
