What's Love Gotta Do With It

When visitors ask Tibetans where the mind is located (in the body), Tibetans point to their heart. This story gave me pause, as I have spent many years trying to balance head and heart, as if they were separate entities demanding distinctly different approaches. To simply accept head and heart as one has changed my relationship to love.  
By letting go the striving, driving, relentless search for balance allows me to practice gratitude with great spaciousness for myself and others. What a special gift particularly during Valentine's week.   
The practice for this week is: "What if you relaxed your thinking, to gratefully accept that head and heart are one in the same? How does that change what you think, how you share love, even what you do?"
