most people have minds that are closed to some subjects and not others, but the problem is that in order to keep the door locked on certain rooms, others end up also having to be locked so as not to allow access, and in a matter of time the mind gets smaller and smaller while the person who owns it doesnt even realize it is happening.
This sounds almost metaphysical to me.
Cna a mind ever be totally open that would not mean death?
What would a person with a totally open mind and heart conjoined look like?
Is this wisdom by any chance?
As an open mind is intelligent?
A open heart is compassionate?
A open mind and heart is wise?
(but I am sometimes of the mind that wisdom avoids and denies love to the most prosperous degree)
the heart on the other hand usually closes after being hurt...and if there is such a thing as healing for the heart, it tends to remain closed at least partially. the more the hurt, the more it closes, until it becomes like a dead thing, nothing more than a machine to pump blood.
Yes I agree, do you think that once a heart is closed once it can ever be truly opened again?
Does the heart learn?
Is the heart intelligent?
both are survival mechanisms i believe...the mind is the upper layer of the heart really, they are in the same region of humanity. to open one means the other also becomes liable to attack; they have to protect each other's back.
Yes opening of one will mean guarding the other more tightly.
So is not this preparation this sometimes paranoia or even survival instinct against attack a closur ein its self?
Are not guards on the gate a tolled heart or mind?
people seldom consciously close their minds, but often their hearts.
Can you choose ignorance?
Can you choose foolishness?
Are these closures?
Does faith open of close the heart or the mind?
i am sure my mind is still closed here and there, but i am working on it. the heart too is still closed here and there, but harder to open up after so long.
So the heart learns from viewed behaviour?
Where as the mind is the seat of behaviour?
Is a closed mind or heart visible on someones skin? (their behaviour?)
i remember when my mother was dying of cancer...i left my job and home and stayed with her for three months. she was particularly cruel to me then, but i did what i felt was right. i had no feeling for her for centuries already...but there was one moment, when i had to help her get out of the wheel chair and back into bed, (my brothers were not around at that moment though we were all three along with her boy friend co-caretakers) when i held her in my arms, my heart almost melted. but it didnt last long enough. it was bad for me, hardly mattered to her...it will always be my handicap.
I believe that when both the heart and mind go is when we tend to be our most cruel and dangerous.
It should be law to have an open heart and mind and against it to close any ones elses.
I know it can not make for a change, but it is not your handicap it is part of your strength.
So by this a once closed mind or heart can indeed make more for an even more open one in the future?
All my love dear Lady.
