Naturally.

Story by Jung of a conversation with a chief of the Pueblo Indians: Jung asked the chief's opinion of the white man and was told that it was not a high one. White people, said Ochwiay Biano, seem always upset, always restlessly looking for something, with the result that their faces are covered with wrinkles. He added that white men must be crazy because they think with their heads, and it is well-known that only crazy people do that. Jung asked in surprise how the Indian thought, to which Ochwiay Biano replied that naturally he thought with his heart.

Sounds right.

I also think a lot of people are thinking with empty hearts, hardened hearts, shriveled hearts. Or... maybe the hearts are empty, hardened and shriveled, because they have been ignored for so long.

It's so popular right now to "follow your heart", but the heart is rarely listened to. I think people mix up the heart with the ego.

Most of those here at Horn Dog Enterprises (HDE) think with their... well, it's not their heads or hearts.
