What’s the relation of Heart and Mind? Have you ever thought about it? What’s that particular thing in the heart which other organs of our body are lacking? Why do we say that “mera ya kam kerny ko gee (dil) nhi cahta.” If we ponder over little profoundly we come to know that this is an order by our mind not by heart. Then why do we use the word “gee” (heart) instead of “dimagh” (mind)? Why….! Ever thought about it? Hey, don’t be perplexed, isn’t it the reality? Let’s mull over it together.
Well, just like other organs, heart is yet another organ of our body. Neither it has any thinking ability nor of understanding then why do we give primary importance to it in our feelings notions and emotions?
What’s the answer to all these queries? I put these queries before a number of people. Most of them ended up with bookish language like; “Heart is a sea and human feelings and observations are its water.” But it wasn’t satisfying at all. One day entangling with these thoughts, all of a sudden a notion hit my mind which resolved the mystery for me at least. The thing which makes our heart different and prominent from other organs of our body and which creates a link between heart and mind is nothing other than HEART-BEAT.
Have you ever observed that with changing incidents of your life the speed of our heart-beat also changes? For instance; you are watching a horror movie; your heart-beat would also get faster as the suspense and dreadfulness of that movie takes length, on other hand your mind also keeps itself busy in many tangling perceptions about the upcoming situation of the movie. These tangling perceptions and variation in heart-beat create a relationship between heart and mind and we think that our heart has also participated in making perceptions about that movie. From here the relation of heart and mind takes birth and rises gradually along with the movie.
Let’s take another example; suppose you are sitting in front of your crush, at this particular moment your heart would be beating at Rawalpindi Express’ pace. Isn’t it? (Just envisage this particular panorama for a moment or so, you’ll get to know my stance more clearly.) It depends upon the nature of the boy and the girl if they are bit timid and dither to communicate with each other, there heart-beat would be quite fast. Just because of speediness of heart-beat and tangling thoughts in their mind, they might not be able to communicate smoothly. And here in this example tangling thoughts and speediness of heart-beat are creating a relation between heart and mind. That’s why heart is also participating in the conversation of that couple. Variation of heart-beat is a source of communication between heart and mind.
With these two examples we conclude that the thing which creates a relationship between heart and mind is nothing other than the variation in heart beat and entangling thoughts roving somewhere in the mind. As the roving thoughts in your mind don’t find a way to relieve themselves, it increases the rate of heart beat and then we say that “mera ya kam kerny ko gee(dil) nhi cahta” or in other words “mera kaleja ghat rha ha…” lol
In a nutshell, Heart and Mind has a strong an unfathomable relation which is simply due to the connection between heart-beat and entangling thoughts, wandering in the mind. Variation of heart-beat is a source of communication between heart and mind and heart-beat is the thinking source for our heart.
