Famous Quotivations # 8 – Jan 7 , 2011 [display_podcast]
If your head tells you one thing, and your heart tells you another, before you do anything, you should first decide whether you have a better head or a better heart. – Marilyn vos Savant
For over two thousand years it has been observed that there is a serious division that exists in humans.
It’s the issue of duality.
Underscored in this duality is the fact that each one of us consists of two realities, our physical and our ethereal natures.
Now I don’t want to geek anyone out here but in the big picture we see a reflection of this dual nature in all matter found in the universe. It appears to either have the behavior of a wave or as a particle.
Personally I have a lot of respect for this duality. I support it in my work everyday where we help people acquire the perspective to deal with the dilemma described in today’s quote.
We do this by providing a way for anyone to observe a part of their ethereal nature by using a part of their physical nature.
Like all of us you may have been faced with indecision. Which way to turn? Left or right?
Your head is a talker and not always a very soft quiet one either. It’s boisterous and likes to loudly promote it’s own agenda. The heart on the other hand is often soft spoken and subtle. It just quietly suggests a course of action that you might like to take.
If the head holds sway you might be seen as selfish. If the heart get’s its way you might look like a pushover.
But as adults, when the day is done, all we’re left with is the realization that we must muster the courage to live with whatever choices we make be it head or heart.
Personally, I try to choose to go with the heart most of the time. It’s more considerate of others and eventually it comes back in spades.
Until next time … consider your self quotivated.
