We probably heard that mind is a FUNCTION of the BRAIN. And consciousness is a function of the mind. Why do I disagree? Let us talk:…
I do not believe that we are to treat mind chemically! – that is just a starting point for all of us. Yesterday I wrote a brief article on autism and inclusive consciousness in one of Russian autistic FB groups. The result – I was banned from that group. Now I want to try to expand on this same topic deeper and share it in a group where, hopefully, this approach will find better appreciation… lol But back to the point..
Some say happiness is a good chemistry of the brain and unhappiness is a bad chemistry of the brain. And nobody is responsible. Let us just go and change chemistry. Yea, right! Good one!
Let me tell you how we can use brain, mind, and thoughts without getting stuck in them, ok? I believe in the model of healing that is based on consciousness and not brain chemistry.
Let me start with the shocking therapy, my friends. In the yogic science there is no such thing as brain, ok? Brain is just body. There is a heart, there is a liver, and there is brain – it is body! That is it. Period.
Why there is tendency to exaggerate the importance of brain? Because modern educational approach is purely intellectual. Human mind is a totally different thing. It consists of 16 parts, but they can be split int 4 categories. The first one in intellect. Intellect has to be sharp. So it is like a knife. You use a knife to cut. There is nothing wrong with cutting things, but if you want to sow things together, knife is not a very good tool. Also not everything can be cut in pieces. If you cut life in order to learn more about it, like our modern science does a lot, then you are actually killing this life. And although it is a totally different topic, it is also a very good analogy. You cannot learn every aspect of life with intellect alone. If you give a flower to a scientist, he will rip it open and see… If he does it, of course he will see many elements in the flower, the only thing is that you won’t have the flower after that!
If you really want to know your child, please don’t cut your child open, it is not how it works… lol
You can only learn the material aspect by cutting it either with real knife or with intellect. Intellect is important. But it is a survival instrument only.
Let us move on to step number two. Intellect, no matter how sharp, cannot survive without a certain amount of memory. In my school, where I teach, my 9th grade was performing yesterday. It was a play about a young boy who lost his memory. The last words of the play were: “I don’t know who I am…”
Whatever your IQ – if we take away your memory…… you maybe still intelligent. That is what i hate in IQ tests. People put well educated children and poorly educated children through the same tests, and they say that they have measured their IQ. No you have not! What you have measured has nothing to do with intellect. You have measured the volume of information. That’s it! Some less educated children, if you put them in real life situation, they will end up really smart, because their intelligence is fully on!
Intellect looks smart only when you back it up with a lot of information. With data you look smart.
The next dimension of mind is identity. Intellect is an instrument to protect identity. Identity allows intellect to function is this or that way. Some of our identities are good, others are idiotic. Identity is like a hand. So you have a knife and a hand. If your knife is sharp you want your hand to be steady, right?
In today’s world there is no cultivation of a universal identity, cosmic identity. Today we mostly have limited identity. And it is destructive for our society.
All evil that people do here on earth is just a question of limited identity. This is my way, this is your way…
Now let us talk about memories: there are many types of memories. Elemental memory, atomic memory, evolutionally memory, conscious memory, unconscious memory, subconscious memory…. there are many…..
This same body carries the memory of EVERYTHING that happened on this planet.
There is a great deal of evolutionary memory in us. And the evolution process still goes on! Some of my readers from the group that banned me strongly disagreed with my perspective. Yet rather than respect someone’s opinion some people… well… just exclude your from their conversation. Way to go! lol
So, the yogic idea of healing is based on tapping into different aspects of memories. Without it you will continue acting in an immature way…
The fourth dimension of mind is intelligence before boundaries. It is very important. When I started writing about it (in much simpler way than now) people asked me if I was on drugs. Now that just shows their level of intellect.
In modern society people don’t have time to think about life. Because they have to have two or three jobs. Why do you need to have three jobs when there is so much land around? Is it not enough land to grow food? No, it is because you want to buy your food in WalMart…. I got it…
If you are interested in finding out more about how human mind works or want to share… let’s talk…. I won’t ban you if we disagree… lol
