Spiritual understanding is born of harmony between mind and heart.
This harmony of mind and heart does not require the mixing up of their functions.
It does not imply cross-functioning, but co-operative functioning. Their functions are neither identical nor co-ordinate.
Mind and heart must of course be balanced but this balance cannot be secured by pitching the mind against the heart or by pitching the heart against the mind.
It can be attained not through mechanical tension, but through intelligent adjustment.

As reader of palmistry I was scared when one astrologer gave negative connotation of my head and heart lines going together.
- it had scared me.
Some of my rash decisions in life always told me about my inner conflict between my mind and heart.
It was soothing to read the Masters advice.
