Our heart is our centre of feeling and love, and represents who we truly are. By contrast, our head is the centre of thinking and the centre of ego.
A truly fulfilled life is one that's filled with love, joy and gratitude. Although the brain is essential in helping to perform our daily tasks, without being able to listen to your heart and follow your heart you can never be really happy.
