I had the honour and pleasure of being asked to write a series of articles for the Shin Dao Institute’s Heart and Mind Matters Newsletter in the fall of 2016. The third article is based on the third Pillar of the Shin Dao Philosophy – that of “Open Your Heart”. This pillar is key to living your life with greater love and joy. In this article, I talk about – thinking with your heart or your head.
