You Cannot Command The Heart

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: We want to change our intention. Does that mean that we change our thoughts?

Answer: You differentiate the thought from the desire, but in spirituality it’s the opposite, we connect the two. It’s because the thought is actually a result of the desire. The action stems from the desire and the intention that is dressed in the desire is called a thought. In this world the mind operates the feelings, the brain influences the heart, but they are separate. In spirituality a desire is the heart and an intention is the mind and they are mutually connected.
