2) Head vs Heart
The whole structure of society is against the heart; it trains the head, it disciplines the head. It educates the head.
It neglects and ignores the heart because the heart is dangerous phenomenon. The head is a machine. Machines are never rebellious, they cannot be. They simply follow orders. Machines are good that way - they are obedient, hence the church, the state, the parents, everybody is interested in the head. It is convenient for all.
The heart creates convenience for the status quo, for established order, for the vested interest.
Head functions through logic. It can be convinced. It can be made Christian, Hindu, Mohammedan, it can be made communist, facist, socialist. Anything can be done with the head. You just need a clever system of education, a cunning strategy. Exactly the same as we feed the computers, we feed the head. And whatsoever you feed the head it goes on repeating. It can't make anything new, it is never original.
The heart lives through love, and love can never be conditioned. It is essentially rebellion. One never knows where love will lead you. It is unpredictable, it is spontaneous, it never repeats the old, it always responds to the present moment. The heart lives in the present, the head lives in the past.; hence the head is always traditional, conventional, and the heart is always revolutionary, rebellious. But you can be victorious only through the heart, through love, not through logic.
And the miracle is that when rebel against the crowd psychology, and you become more and more independent, suddenly you start feeling that you are becoming one with the whole, with the universal.
