The structure of the Whole Human Being [WHB] is not arbitrary, capable of being altered, modified, and… although three-quarters of who and what we are is invisible to our brains, and our physical senses… we nevertheless insist that our brains MUST come with us… as we seek to find God.
What causes us to cling to the brain and thinking so tightly? Well, what makes us do this is a non-conscious fear of the “unknown,” which is held deep “Within” our MINDs. And, speaking of the MIND, you do realize that your MIND is not your brain, right? Your brain is physical, and your MIND is not physical at all.
The hierarchy of thinking of the brain lies in the complete control Of the MIND. And yet, the brain is unable to perceive the energy of the MIND… even thought it, the brain, is generally controlled by the MIND. The brain thinks, and its thinking can be an internal exercise carried out by itself, or what it thinks can be fed to the Left-Hemisphere of the brain by Delusional Thinking generated entirely “Within” a person’s MIND. What determines when the MIND feeds Delusional Thinking, or D-Think to the Left-Hemisphere of the brain is how much threat a person’s MIND perceives in that person’s environment?
D-Think is fed to the [L-H] of the brain when a MIND perceives itself threatened in anyway? But, wait a moment. Did I not say the MIND is not physical, how can the MIND be threatened? It is not itself threatened, what threatens the MIND is some word, sound, smell, or anything that can stimulate some deeply repressed trauma the MIND is holding repressed “Within” itself. The MIND is the local administrator of the Law of Karma for an individual, and the MIND holds hidden “Within” itself all the Karma a person has engaged in, and has not as yet completed?
I will discuss in detail the workings of the Law of Karma in a future blog. For now, let us be content with the fact the MIND is charged with insuring that we adhere to the Fate Karma [which simply means the stored record of Karma “Within” one’s MIND that one’s Soul has intended to work through in this lifetime]. It is the “protection” of this stored Karma from being prematurely exposed, that causes the MIND to engage D-Think to prevent one from becoming aware of some repressed bit of Karmic trauma… until it is time for that bit of Karma to be worked on both from “Within” oneself, and outside oneself.
I refer to the mechanism “Within” the MIND that uses D-Think to divert one’s attention from some stored bit of Karma [trauma], that may be stimulated by something in one’s environment, as the “DM-=SI” [Defense Mechanism equals Subtle Insanity]. The “SI” or subtle insanity part of this process refers to the fact that when the DM=SI is engaged, a person has no idea that what he/she is thinking and saying is entirely scripted by his/her MIND.
So, when the MIND is capable of controlling one’s thoughts and beliefs, anytime it chooses, how reasonable is it to assume that one can ‘depend’ upon one’s brain to seek anything one’s MIND does not want one to pursue? It is ones own MIND that keeps one focused upon the world, and the things of the world. All of which serve as barriers to one’s Spiritual growth. Our MINDs use our own Spiritual Energy, in other words, to keep us attached to people, places and things of life. And all of this is done at levels we cannot “think” about.
So, to answer the question in the title, no, the brain is quite useless in our pursuit of our Spirituality. If this is the case, then what does one use?
