I would offer that by "heart" we a referring to our narrative locus. That
to "follow the heart" is to fulfill the needs of our internal narrative.
This is why the need of the "heart" are often in conflict with logic.
Logic seldom makes for a good story line.

As for spirit, hmmm... Maybe the personification of the narrative locus.
(Let me think on that one some more.)
