Thinking versus Feeling: continued again

The interesting thing about writing down thoughts and/or feelings is going back and reviewing them with the benefit of additional experience and history to color the interpretation. It is almost like archaeology of the mind-heart. Sometimes I have a hard time teasing apart insight from self-delusion.

I am starting to believe that the part of the mind that we call the heart is the only part worth heeding. Because every other type of mind output can be subject to rational deconstruction. But the heart is somewhat impervious to such things. We don't apply rules or codes to its output.

"the heart just wants what it wants"

I made a comment comparing romantic pursuits to either controlled descent as in a hang glider versus bungee jumping without a bungee cord. Well, I think that any illusion of controlling the heart is just that: an illusion. It may be true that we choose to love, but it is either going to be like a waterfall or like a salmon swimming upstream.

I have tried both, and it is always work. The difference is that one way the road is surrounded by safety nets, and the other way it is surrounded by butterflies.

I honestly have no idea what I am saying.
