Want what ? That is how life is for some people and it never ends. No schedule, no bosses, no money, no rules, no clock forever. What more do you want ?
You must be "thinking with your head" to want more.

Where is beauty? It is in a butterfly, but when we chloroform it, lay it out on the dissecting table, and cut it apart, beauty is gone. Beauty is in a poem, but when we over-analyze the poem to find exactly what is beautiful about it, beauty disappears from that too. Beauty is in a painting, but can we reduce it to quantitative measures of color and proportion, and then apply these to the standardized production of beauty? No. Beauty is a relationship, not an objective property, and the mass-production of generic relationships produces, necessarily, an aesthetic that is equally phony, generic, and cheap.

I've heard somewhere that the physical heart itself contains bundles of neurons and is capable of a type of thinking, physically, and there are stories of transplant recipients obtaining memory flashes from the doner..
The "head mind" is really a differentiating meaning making machine and an elaborate recording device, so "it" never lives where life is, but instead has us in the grip of a past-future time bound consciousness, and, that we, our "self" IS our mind.
The heart, in the Christian frame of reference, refers to one's "innermost being", and the core of the true self intersects with the ground of all being in eternity.
An afferent neuron is one that sends information to another neuron. These sensory neurons detect the local mechanical and biochemical changes that occur in cardiac tissue. They send this information to the rest of the intrinsic cardiac nervous systems and in many cases to the brain.
