The Sixties Radical- Azriel A Quiet Heart

See how beautifully mind and heart complement one another:

The heart is an extremist. Unbridled, it will allow a single emotion to fill its entire space. But the mind finds balance and harmony, even between opposites.

The mind is cold and aloof. To the mind, reality is but a curiosity. But the heart lives in that reality, moved by its every nuance.

The mind must fit everything in neat boxes. And so, it can never grasp truth. The heart, when still and quiet, can hear silence, know the unknowable and grasp the infinite.

When the heart listens to the vision of the mind, it too learns to carry a counterpoint of voices, even the voices of other hearts. When the mind listens to the depths of the heart, it can change the world.
