    Why it is said that sometimes we should use our heart to think? HOW CAN HEART THINK?

    Why Love is always said to be associated to heart....... Why we are said to use our heart instead of brain..... Why only heart.....???

    I think it's because when you are happy, the heart beats faster. And sometimes when you're sad, it feels like a big hole in your chest. Ofcourse we use our brain to think, but we let our heart guide us.

    Of course this is mearley a metaphorical statement, although it is more often used in the sense of using your heart to 'feel' not think.
    You either go with your head or your heart; you either go with your 'logical thinking' or your 'gut feeling'.
    The heart is associated with love & feelings, this goes back a long way & is associated with the energy centre located around this point; the heart chakra.
    The brain is where we analyse situations & do the 'thinking' this is the 'processor' so to speak of human beings.
    The heart is not literally where we feel emotion but as it is associted as one of the main internal organs which also happens to be located at this energy centre, it is where we appear to 'feel' emotion.

    This is a reference to the way he body was regarded before the age of reason when the heart was seen as the centre of the person and the seat of the soul.

    Now we know all about the flow of blood (which then was thought to flow like the tides under the influence of the moon). And we know the heart is just a pump, though it has strong metaphorical and metaphysical associations, which makes it much more than that in our imaginations..

    Today we believe that the brain, or the "mind" is that centre that once was occupied by the heart

    Different cultures have considered the liver or the spleen to be the organ responsible for emotions of love.

    No matter the organ of choice, it is merely the symbolic counterpart to the brain... an emotional brain if you will.

    For the record, I for one think listening to your spleen in moderation can be a very good thing.
