What Is Closer To The Spiritual World: The Heart Or The Mind?

laitman_610.3Question: Why is the desire for spirituality called the point in the heart and not the point in the brain? Is the heart closer to the spiritual world?

Answer: All of nature is the will to receive, to be filled, to enjoy. This is the foundation of nature. The mind is given to us in order to use this desire correctly. Therefore, the mind serves the desire.

The heart is our most central starting point, the most central desire. Therefore the awakening desire for spirituality is called point in the heart.
