Yea - I understand. Seems a common mis-perception.
The head and heart need to be in the same place - a goal worth working towards.

But consider............

A lot of what we often call 'heart' feeling is really remnants of social conditioning. It's beneficial to get some quiet time to really get in touch with the TRUE heart, unwrapping it from layers that have been added on without our knowledge.

I often ask myself.............

How would I have "felt" about this when I was 5 or 6 years old ?

Helps the perspective sometimes.
