An article in the Telegraph in which the brain is revealed to have vastly more capacity or ability than in most of us is apparent.
Start out with God - or if you prefer, with Unlimited and Indivisible Mind.
imagine and invest in limiting and divisive or self conflicting thought
- which cannot actually divide the Indivisible, but can serve as a lens
and provide an overlay of experience in which to explore the experience
itself and become defined and identified within it as a self-existing
Everything in one's experience reflects faithfully the
program of thought and desire that is essentially running in the
background - while on the surface the 'user' mentality believes it is
this self existing self and that all else is its dominion - to prevail
over in judgement if not in act (though it may seek such control as it
can get it!).
This may be asking too much of the reader to
consider, but like the comment after this one, I am suggesting that our
thinking - at least at the level of definitions, beliefs,
identifications and judgements is a distorting filter of limitation.
are (generally) addicted to our thinking and to the experience it
engenders as our very (and only) life - as we are to the desire to be
special and to use power over the 'other' or indeed over the whole, in attempt to make our thinking (self) real.
actual power of Mind (capitalized to indicate Universal and all
pervading), is terrifying to the 'little mind' - and is effectively
denied awareness by a complex of denial, dissociation and distraction
that serves to protect it while it plays in limitation. But this 'ego'
structure is not fact but action - not unlike an unimaginably powerful
supercomputer fully active in presenting you with a virtual existence -
within your own Being - that becomes unaware of anything beyond its own
program - a program that feeds back on itself as a loop - such that the
past re enacts itself over and over again.
The desire and defence
that maintains continuity of experience of self can be interrupted or
shocked such as to reveal anomalies of all kinds and on all levels.
Usually there is a tidy away function that sweeps these out of sight
asap or denigrates them as - 'must have imagined it' and etc - but many
leaks occur in which more of the totality of what you Are - is revealed.
aspects of this are apparently random, as in accidents that leave
someone with a changed ability that may not have much apparent
consequence beyond not being able to account for it.
aspects are of a communication or communion of the mind / Mind. These
are not always so visible in external terms but are key to a true
functionality of life whether we become Self-Aware or not.
The faculty of discernment is lost amidst the insistence that it serve a personal power of advantage and yet it is a direct 'link' with Mind as the sense of the wholeness and root nature of all things.
As such it is also one with inspiration and true answer because there
is no inspiration or answer in programmed thinking - no matter how well
it is presented.
I write this as a sketch for consideration. That
our self definitions are in fact limitation and our world definitions
are not different from that.
If one only seeks answer for the
beliefs and conditionings of the 'organic' sense of self as separate
entity - and substitutes meat-brain for mind then death is the starting
point and not life - whatever powers may be added to its fleeting span!
