Intellect and love are made of different materials.
Intellect ties people in knots and risks nothing, but love dissolves all tangles and risks everything. Intellect is always cautious and advises, ‘Beware too much ecstasy,” where as love says, ‘Oh never mind! Take the plunge! Intellect does not easily break down, whereas love can effortlessly reduce itself to ruble.
But treasures are hidden among ruins. A broken heart hides treasures.
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I will meet you there.”–Rumi
