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.
