    Easy, brain. Though technically speaking, even when we use our hearts, it's still the brain behind it all.

    Based on Q appears that you believe in the Mind Body Dualism in Rene Descartes's Principles of Philosophy.

    Useless factoid: There is smooth muscle and Striated (Rough) muscle tissue.
    Smooth muscle is an involuntary non-striated muscle.
    Two of these is your heart & stomach. No neurons in the heart but the ENS is a mesh-like system of neurons that governs the function of the gastrointestinal tract. About 2/3 as many as in the whole nervous system of a cat.

    90 percent of the fibers in the primary visceral nerve, the vagus, carry information from the gut to the brain and not the other way around.

    My Final Answer: Both, There is no either-or

    Because of my experiences I give "the heart" the greater power.

    What we do directed by the brain is done based on sense perceptions which, more times than not, is nothing more than a judgment that does not give one the 360  external view nor carry them from top through the subject matter and out of the bottom to "drinking deep from the puritan spring" for completely understanding the subject matter. 

    The heart is the "all knowing senses" of what is called god that has been through everything we will ever experience. When the heart speaks it is giving you directions from its own experiences with the subject matter that gave it the complete understanding of it.

    However, there are times, due to the law of REAPING AND SOWING, when the heart will refuse to intervene because one has to pay off their karma. All things are destiny so sometimes the heart speaks so the brain can comprehend to receive the lessons because of knowing the brain will refuse to obey the heart. Then when the person comes to a similar situation they will remember their disobedience of the heart's directions they were not satisfied with the outcome and may follow it to see that "the heart knows best." Everything in life is a lesson, we should treat is as one and remember the various outcomes.

    Never separate your mind from your heart when making relationship decisions.
    The purpose of the mind is to protect the heart.
    Too often when people simply follow their heart they choose to (ignore) "red flags" or they see only what (they) want to see. Later they act as if the heartache "just happened" to them.

    You shouldn't rely on your heart more than your mind neither should you rely on your mind more than your heart.
    The mind is critical while the heart is filled with feelings. When your heart falls in love and tries to convince you he is the right person engage your mind but don't be too critical.
    You see if you go by the heart you will not notice the warning signs that person is not right for you. Your mind will help you to arrive at that perspective of which the heart will not notice or ignore. There is a reason why it is said the heart is blind. Don't always trust it. I have learned that the hard way.
