Conflict between mind and heart

In the life of most persons the mind and the heart are at loggerheads, and the conflict between the two creates confusion.The mind, in its objective handling of the material world, is saturated with the experiences of multiplicity and separateness, and it, therefore, feeds the egocentric tendencies which divide man from man and make him selfish and possessive.But the heart, which in its inner experiences feels the glow of love, gets the glimpse of the unity of the spirit; and it, therefore, seeks expression through the self-giving tendencies which unite man with man and make him selfless and generous.——-AVATAR MEHER BABA
