How does our brain work? According to an expert, and from her experience of a stoke (see video: brain scientist insight ), our left brain processes, files, figures things out, sorts, and organizes all the information we accumulate in our life. Our right brain is what accepts everything as it is. All of it. In all its splendor. One giant cosmic whole. A swirling mass of energy and light moving in perfect harmony. We need both to live in the physical world. You might look at the brain in this way; the right brain is all the information there is, and the left brain makes it useful. We reason things out with the left brain based on the information we have, to create our lives and the things we do… the human part. The right brain sees everything in its fullness, complete in its relation to everything else as part of the whole… the being part.
In order to experience the being part we must have the human part. The being part inspires the human part with ideas, insights, of who we really are. Then the human part organizes the data and brings the idea into manifestation. When the being part is dominant, we are in la la land, peace and love and all that. When we are in the human part, it’s all about evidence, hard facts, what we call reality. We call right brain thinking, dreaming, and left brain thinking, reasoning. What we are aiming for is balance. The question is “how do we do that?”.
Why not try re-zoning instead of reason-ing. Re-zoning some space in our left brain. Spend some time quieting down, meditating, connecting to nature, listening to the silence. These things allow space in the left brain to receive inspiration, ideas, and concepts, from our right brain. The things that are not part of our experience. They have yet to be created. The regular practice of things like this will begin to re-zone the way we think. All great teachers throughout the ages have taught this. Now science is saying the same thing.
All this presented me with another interesting idea. I was writing the word reason out and it came out re-a-son. Re means to do again… a means singular… and son is an offspring of two things coming together. So a singular idea might come from, all that is, in the right brain, enters into the left brain that processes that idea, which then creates a son, the offspring of the right and left brain coming together to create something man-I-festered in the physical world. Which would make all of us, individual vehicles for the manifestation of God, all that is, expressing through us, and as us. Or not…. you decide. (oh, and feel free to comment on the post)
