Question: As all types of thinking is done by our brain, can you scientifically explain what ‘thinking with your heart’ means?
Answer: As the scientific method of Kabbalah explains we are actually not “thinking” with our brains at all.
We are primarily sentient creatures as our primary matter is the desire to receive pleasures for ourselves. Thus it is the “heart” that determines everything in its endless pursuit to gain ever increasing pleasures while it escapes pain, suffering.
Our mind, the computer of the brain “simply” makes sense of our emotional impressions. It catalogs, sorts out and prepares our desires and sensations, constantly aiming us according to its inherent “egocentric pleasure/pain software”.
We think with our heart and use our mind to help us implement the “thoughts and desires” of the heart.
