    The intelligence of the heart acts for wholeness of the individual. It moves for wellbeing, which is another word for nurturing. Intellect in the head is abstract, predicting and controlling, looking for novelty, creativity. The bond begins in the heart. If that fails, the head compensates with ideas, a very poor substitute for nurtured wellness. The infant bonded and nurtured with the mother is automatically bonded to their own heart as the fifth brain in the system. Being related to my own heart I can automatically, below the level of awareness bond with others, all of nature. Not bonded to my own heart every relationship is threating, at risk, lifelong.
