We can intellectualize the world’s problems forever, debating who created them and how we can change them, but one thing is for certain when it comes to our ability to evolve to the next step of humanity – we’ve got to get out of our heads and into our hearts.
We need to be fools. We need to get a little crazy, in fact. Quite literally – lose our minds. Lose the ever-thinking, conniving, worrying, strategizing ways of the intellect which hold up true progress. Sure, the human intellect is amazing, it came up with post-it notes and pumpkin pie, but it also devised the atom bomb, fracking, and water fluoridation.
The heart doesn’t ‘think’ like that. It just loves. It throws caution to the wind and includes everyone in the discussion. It doesn’t draw impenetrable boundaries or lines in the sand.
“Remember the emphasis on the heart. The mind lives in doubt and the heart lives in trust. When you trust, suddenly you become centered.” ~ Osho
