My Experiments With Mind And Heart

“English novelist and essayist Samuel Butler exclaimed that ‘Logic is like the sword – those who appeal to it, shall perish by it.’” A mind that is all logic is a mind which functions strictly on reason and sound ideas and is far removed from emotions. There is an impasse that emerged when your head says “GO” the heart denounces “NO”. It can be established that the head refers to logical thinking whereas the mind and the heart refer to the intrapersonal emotions. Logic and emotions are both used in various areas of knowledge. However, how we use and view them is quite diversified.
Having said that, time and again it can be felt like our feelings control how we think and act to the point where we feel like we’re not in control. Often, there is a strong relationship between the events in your life and your feelings–for example, to feel sadness in response to loss, or to feel happiness in response to something desirable.
As on a personal note, it helps me to sort out my thoughts and feelings about a particular topic that happens to be stressing me out or triggering anxiety or depression. Composing Shayari, in both Hindi and English, helped me burst out some thought bubbles popping in my head like a devil. In contrast to this emotions were the logic trying to be logical in the grey matter of my brain. In the past, people thought that the ‘left’ and ‘right’ sides of the brain were responsible for two different forms of thinking. The left is for problem-solving and logical thinking, while the right side works for creativity and intuition. As with the ‘two-sided brain myth,’ we don’t think people are just born inherently logical and creative. You become those things you choose to nourish. And at one point of time, I chose to nourish.
My whole life, writing has been calling to me. As a child, I dreamt of being an artist; as a high schooler I won an award for my writing, and was told by more than one peer I should write more and amidst all these adulthood hustle-bustle I finally found NOJOTO - a talent sharing network which brings you content curation tool that helps you find high-traffic contents and gives you fresh ideas when it comes to your next write up through the procedure of engagement writing. I started my journey of composing quotes and Shayari on this platform and got an inspiring hype in my writing career.
But again the question that lied ahead of me was - Are we rational human beings? Do we follow all forms of logic? I didn’t know it back then. The truth is that our decision-making process relies on a mixture of emotion and its partner- logic. However, we cannot rely entirely on emotion until our logical side has been engaged. Contrariwise, if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn’t, it ain’t. That’s logic. Well, here lies the irony of logic. According to the critic of the last decades, Joseph Wood, logic is “the art of doing wrong with confidence.” Creation and logic run parallel to discretion and argumentative frame of reference. While some people like to discrete ideas and opinions, others argue out of habit: under the shadow of logic and reasons. And in the words of philosopher Thomas Paine, “To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.” Most of our so-called reasoning consists in finding arguments for going on believing as we already do. Men are apt to mistake the strength of their argument.
As also indicated by Tagore in his this quote “A mind all logic is like a knife all blade. It makes the hand bleed that uses it.” is something which depicts how a person's outlook should be. A parallel has been drawn which suggests ‘logic’ could only be so much important that it can't overrule the need of having knowledge about the entity. The statement is not against reason; if you reduce reason to a method - to logic then it would have been against reason but reason implies being rational which is not just a skill to use logic. Tagore himself never derided reason as a fashion of his writings. In his poem, ‘Where The Mind is Without Fear,’ he describes reason as a clear stream. The simile intended as showing reason to have the ability to expel all superstitions and chauvinism. In short, people’s thoughts should be monitored by rational thinking or else we would have in Husserl’s words a ‘logic that does not understand itself’.
A purely logical person will never be able to appreciate all the quirks and intricacies that characterize this beautiful world we inhabit. And so much of human relationship depends on emotions and feelings that it would be a folly to rely solely on logic to steer our lives that would eventually end up causing mutilation to our own vim and vigor. Charles Dickens in his novel ‘Hard Times’ has rightly pointed out that “There is the wisdom of the head…and there is the wisdom of the heart.” In persuasion, the message seems to focus on emotions and still all the while maintaining a balance between logic and feelings. We can be swaying using only logic or only emotion, but the effect will be short-term and unbalanced. And uncertainties caused to humans, might it be because of his own doing, will cause detriments to the lives and affiliations related to it.


As I recollect my expedition as a writer, I hark back to writing Shayari on the first note. Visualize me as an amateur enthusiast, penning down random words and jumbling them here and there to form the exemplary rhymes for that Shayari. In the simplest way - If you are driven only and only by logic, it is bound to hurt your emotions and emotional attachments. Instead of the coldness of the logic what is required is the warmth of love and compassion for the fruitfulness of humanity. Only human and divine emotions can tame the waywardness of the logic to uphold the sanctity of human values and make the world a better place to live. I could hold on my emotions in the form of Shayari, with the wooden blade of life’s logic with it. I hope you do it too.
