We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
T.S.Eliot as quoted in this link.
Poetry is one of my loves and I have a journal of attempts. Poetry speaks to our heart, but often about subjects that need thinking about. The quoted above poem seems to suggest all thinking is circular. That might make you say why think. Not helpful. I think reality says sometimes thinking takes us back to a beginning but with a new insight.
When I conducted trainings for NYCity’s crisis teams, my rule was you could not ignore your heart (what some refer to as gut feeling) or your head (knowledge learned from others). If you were going to call 911 as a crisis team, you had to be able to explain the thinking behind your decision as well as what your heart was telling you do to.
