But is there really ONE answer? If so, the polytheist in me has a hard time with this.
It’s not like it has to be reason OR ignorance, reason OR impulse, reason OR mindlessness. We’re not just talking about the brain or mind in opposition to our emotions or spirits…
It’s more like: in all things, we must deploy a reasoned mind, a loving heart, and a welcoming, fearless spirit. It’s not one over another. It’s the “right” choices from all aspects of ourselves. It’s using our disciplined minds to know that we are holistic people, and need to train our emotional intelligence as fiercely as we train our disciplined minds.
After all, isn’t that more reasonable?
