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.
