Memory Loss… and what can be done about it?

One of the problems with aging is that normally older people have not spent most of their lives studying about the MIND, and the brain.  And, unless you know how the MIND works [and what it’s Purpose is?], by the time you are in your later years… you have lost sufficient memory that you can’t remember what you wanted to try and not forget?

The MIND is not unlike a computer in that it keeps active that which is used, and shoves that which is not used into areas that are considered unimportant.  For instance, if you had a stroke, or you injured yourself so that you were laid up for some time… it would not be wise to jump into your car and head for the nearest on-ramp.

For most people, the MIND operates the brain, and again… like a computer, if you do not exercise the brain regarding a wide range of things, those things you do not exercise thought about… are pushed into bins labeled “unnecessary,” and they quickly become  very difficult to remember.

If you do not know what the difference between the physical brain, and the MIND  [which is essentially invisible] is… then you need to know, ASAP [as soon as possible].

Your brain is a physical muscle that resides within your skull.  It has some remarkable qualities to it, but it is also greatly overrated.  On the other hand, your MIND is a “other-worldly” wonder, without which a human being would die instantly. And  yet, modern mental health treats we human beings as thought our MINDs don’t even exist.  Imagine that! Your MIND is only slightly less important than your Soul, and yet modern mental health ignores your MIND entirely.

The reason for this is truly important [in many ways], and we will discuss this in the next blog.

When Does One Lose Fear?

The deeper question is this:   What causes fear?

And the answer is this:  Fear is the natural emotion of the unknown, which is the natural existence of Spirituality when in  its inexperienced form, which is the form in which it is normally active “Within” those who are not Enlightened.

If this sounds like a puzzle, it is a puzzle: In fact… it is the Puzzle of Life. A puzzle because Spirituality is perceived as Nothing by the brain, physical senses, and the MIND.  Therefore, Nothing is correctly  referred to as the “unknown” when it can only be perceived as nothing.  But Nothing is neither Nothing, nor is it the unknown, because it is the Energy of the Spirit that exists in the Soul of Man.

Mystics have many names for this ‘unknown,’ and Christ referred to it as the Word, Spirit, and the Holy Ghost.  I refer to it by the symbol NSgy, which stands for Neutral Spiritual Energy.  And the NSgy in Man can only be experienced by the faculty of Intuition, in the form of subtle bits of Truth, which are provided to one’s Conscious Awareness [or C-Awar]  as one is “ready” to awaken to a particular bit of Truth?

What we refer to as fear, is usually a form of anxiety regarding something we sense is about to occur, but we are unable to identity that something, which means it is unknown to us.   And most certainly we do not expect we are afraid of Nothing.

Although… in Truth, it is precisely Nothing that we fear.  And Nothing is NSgy, or the Energy of Spirituality, or God.  So, unknown to us, we are actually afraid of God, since we have not [as yet] awakened to the NSgy hidden Within ourselves.

Mystically, as one’s Soul begins to focus Within itself [rather than outside of oneself], the unknown aspect of Nothing begins to be “experienced” as NSgy, and this increases our experiential Knowledge of God, thus subtly removing the unknown aspects of Life… which means… reducing fear of the unknown.

This transformation is facilitated by increased prayer or Mediation.

What is Karma… Really?

The term “Karma” is the simple way to refer to one of the primary principles of Life laid down by  God,  when the Creation was first established.  And, no Mystic has ever attempted to state when the Creation first began?  But, we are told the Creation has been going on for ‘eons’  [an ‘eon’ refers to millions or billions of years].

So, when Archeologists discover ancient ruins that puzzle them as to how these ruins were created… [by what they “think” of as primitive people], these ‘scholars’ tend to not consider  that mankind has existed long before the dates proposed by various fields of science.

Would this common mistake of Egotism… still be made if modern science was to consider the Reality of Reincarnation?  Perhaps it would, but I can’t help but believe that if Man was more open to Eastern Mysticism, and the Reality that both the Law of Karma, and that of Reincarnation exist,  ancient history might more easily be seen as a form of  “pre-history”… the evidence of which is simply so destroyed and erased by natural deterioration as to be almost invisible.

The Law of Karma is simply stated in this way:  As you sow, so shall you reap! And the term Karma is Sanskrit for “action”.  So, just like we find in physics, every action taken  by a Soul [via the MIND which is attached to that Soul], sets in motion an opposite and equal re-action.  The entire Creation is based on the duality of Yin and Yang, and the Law of Karma.

The Law of Karma applies to every living thing, which has a Soul… And, if it is living, it has a Soul?  So, the carrot has a Soul, as does the 1,000 year-old tree found in various places on Earth.  What science can discover of that which supports “life” amounts to elements of the physical plane, and nothing of that which sustains the “Life” of a thing.

The whole human being is composed of four simultaneously existing, and entirely separate vibrational planes, or dimensions.  Only one of these is physical, tangible, and capable of being perceived by the physical senses of Man.  This means that three-quarters are invisible!

Yang is the male out-going energy of Man, and Yin is the female in-going energy that is emotional in nature.  The energy of the MIND is emotional energy, by the way.  And MIND-level energy is invisible to the brain, and yet, the MIND is capable of feeding Delusional Thinking to the Left-Hemisphere of the brain  which the brain is unable to differentiate from its normal “thinking”.  I refer to this process as “DM=SI,” or Defense Mechanism equals Subtle Insanity. Fritz Perls referred to this process by the name “Scotoma,” or “blind spot”.

The second prime principle and universal law of Life is that of Reincarnation.  And Reincarnation simply means the Soul [which is permanent, and immortal], does not die when the physical body dies. At death, the brain, body, personality, and psychology of a person dies, and the Soul [with MIND attached], and  in its Astral body, is “judged” regarding the Karma that person created or completed in that lifetime?  This is mentioned in the Bible in  Hebrews 9:27.

When this “Judgement” is completed, the Karma of that person literally designs the next lifetime of that Soul.  And a Soul can Reincarnate, or Transmigrate, depending upon what will serve the growth of that Soul best?  Transmigrate means incarnating into a lower life form than that of human being.  All “judgement” is for the “good” of the Soul, in terms of the growth and maturation of that Soul.  This, of course, takes place over countless lifetimes.

So, is there anything that Man can do that is not part of creating Karma? No, one is either creating positive, or negative Karma with every thought one entertains, or action one takes.

The Secret of being Honest… If one can locate “honest” within oneself?

In watching a 1937 film this morning, I was pulled back in time to a nation that was less informed, and as a consequence, more humble. It almost seems that the more ‘intelligent’ people become, the more narrow, insecure and prejudiced they become.  Or, am I mistaken?

Perhaps the growth of intelligence within a group of people is necessitated to meet the demands of the environment the people must contend with?  And too,  the complexity of an environment may also demand an increase in the amount of ‘attention’ a person must give to ones external environment?

What is “Attention” by the way?  I mean, what is taking place within oneself  when one is obligated to make use of ones cerebral attention aspect of one’s brain?  And too, if a person has a set amount of “Attention,” what difference does it make what that Attention is focused upon?

I wonder how many readers realize that we have a Left-Hemisphere, and a Right-Hemisphere of the brain… although, this is not generally emphasized, is it?  The Left-Hemisphere = [L-H], and the Right-Hemisphere = [R-H]. These two Hemispheres serve very different purposes, and they also involve very different aspects of the whole of Man.

Each person has an ‘inside’ operation, and an ‘outside’ operation.  Although the terms inside and outside are often confusing.  When we make use of the Left-Hemisphere of the brain… [L-H], there is no emotion involved. When there is emotion involved [in what one is  experiencing], well then, it is the Right-Hemisphere, or [R-H] of the brain that becomes involved… and sometimes ones MIND allows one to experience emotion… but when that emotion is perceived as a threat [to what the MIND holds hidden within itself], then ones MIND blocks ones experience of that emotion.  The MIND does this by blocking use of the [R-H], by use of  its “DM=SI” or Defense Mechanism equals Subtle Insanity.

Oddly enough, there does seem to be a correlation between how intelligent a person is… which means limited to use of the [L-H] of the brain,  and a lack of awareness of emotions by that person.  Could this mean that the more an environment demands use of the [L-H] of the brain… the less access to the Right-Hemisphere people develop and possess, simply because they have not exercised the [R-H] sufficiently?  Rudeness, disrespect, anxiety, cruelty, and violence are all actions that people lacking  emotional restraint engage in.  These negative emotional actions can be engaged in by a person using the [L-H] because the [L-H] is not concerned about  emotional energy related to certain actions.

Honesty, by the way, is an emotional state that would require a person to possess an elevated use of the [R-H].  And the absence of an active {R-H] would encourage lying, or dishonesty.  Just a point to consider.
