44. Mind and Heart

I heard on Tevet 10, February 1, 1928

One must examine if the faith is in order, meaning if one has fear and love, as it is written, “If I am a father, where is my honor, and if I am a Lord, where is my fear?” And this is called “Mind.”

We must also see that there will not be any desires for self-gratification, that even a thought to want for himself will not arise in him, but all his desires will be only to bestow upon the Creator. This is called “heart,” which is the meaning of “The Merciful One wants the heart.”
