Brain going wrong or balanced? – Meditation better than brain hemorrhage.

Jill Bolte Taylor is a scientist who has experienced the full potential of the brain through a brain hemorrhage and in this article today I would like to connect this with meditation. Later in this article there is a link to an amazing presentation by her.

Now. First I will explain to you how I got into meditation:

I had the luck to get fired with a big bunch of money. I had the luck of making the decision to leave my stressful Norwegian girlfriend. I had the luck of making the decision to travel more slowly. I had the luck of finding good books about meditation and finding good books about success and learning how to lead my own life more effectively. I also had the luck of a good education from Sweden and a mother and a father who raised me well and gave me good knowledge about many things including philosophy and psychology.

And finally I had the luck one day to be so damn hangover that I actually did not want to go out from my little hut in the middle of a Mekong delta in the south of Laos and on this one day I was lucky enough to make the decision to actually try meditation and on this day for the first time in my life I began to receive information that was already there in my mind but still not yet really seen clearly by the logical side of my brain.

Secondly. Now I would like that you begin to understand the potential of meditation:

In meditation we are able to access more of the emotional side of our brain and in this excellent video-clip Jill Bolte Taylor shows you the characteristics of our two brain halves – A powerful stroke of insight.

Third. Now I would like you to continue reading!

Suddenly through my meditation, there in the middle of the harmful alcoholism and the hangover, my consciousness expanded from the size of a golf-ball into the size of a football to give you a reasonable metaphor. I asked my brain: -Why do I drink if I feel sick in the morning and all the answers came to me in a flood from the feeling mind and flooded into my expanded consciousness.

This awareness continued to stay with me from this moment. I began to understand that I was liberated from the culture of drinking, if I wanted to. I began to understand that many people who had been posing as friends were not my real friends. They were detached from oneness.

My emotional side had already picked up on that but I had been too busy being too logical to be able to see it. These false friends had been making money for themselves making other people go places and making them drink too much. A design caused by capitalism and the following greed.

I realized that the loud music was designed to separate me from other people and that suggestions and annoying noises in the music was designed to make me feel depressed, feel separate. the music was designed to make me feel that alcohol in this noise would make me feel better.

Yes. This evil logic controlled the whole setup. Using our emotional mind being more aware in each moment we understand what is the truth and what is best. Being sober and listening to good music dancing with real friends makes us enjoy for real. Good music is very separate from bad music and noises. Alcohol numbs the brain, makes noises less annoying and this is the way evil people make money on unaware people, usually young people.

Having this new awareness I soon decided to quit drinking and with this new expanded consciousness it was very easy. I was very powerful. I felt like a beautiful wolf. I could spot evil in appearance and movements of a person but I could also recognize good all around me. I consciously counted the beers and kept my goal with my new awareness. I drank less and less every day, the beers further apart, more water in between, until I was down on one beer per day. What a total control I had in every moment! It was amazing.

Once you tap in to this massive consciousness you will instinctively feel and put things together that was hidden from you before. Other people will not be able to manipulate you, you will feel what they plan, you will understand instinctively if people care about you or not. You will be enlightened about things that you actually know, but never could see before because you were using your logical mind so frenetically that you basically ignored half of your functional brain that has superior powers in many aspects and one of these powers is to feel what is the truth.

But I would like to add that people who are totally lost in “La La land”, as Jill puts it, could probably do very little good for this world, they might even find it hard to dial a phone number. So after many hours of meditation reaching balance most of us have the potential to reach what I call super-intelligence, and that is why today nobody may enter Intelligent Union or The Scientific party of Sweden without this expanded consciousness. People not using both sides of their brains effectively are actually both lost in a “La La Land” in two different ways.

Scientists are usually lost in the logical “La La Land” using science as their religion, as truth. This is, in fact, no much different than using the bible as a religion. A frozen belief is a frozen belief, it is not a free individual, it is not a powerful wolf.

Jill however is not lost in any of these “La La lands” any more. I believe Jill is now using both brain-halves more effectively and that is also why she may enter Intelligent Union if she wants to.

The only mistake she might be making in her video, if it even should be considered a mistake, is to partly describe her fantastic experience in a somewhat crazy way for scientists, since telling people lost in logical “La La Land”with words that actually could make us look crazy to them might not be advisable if we want to succeed in winning them over to us.

It could actually be better to describe our “hallucinations” in a more dry way for the logical dry mind, but anyway, let’s be positive! Let’s hope it can inspire as many scientists as possible to find awareness anyway and that more logical brains will join us in feeling liberated, huge, powerful and, peaceful in oneness and pure love!

Thanks Jill for your amazing courage and excellent presentation technique.

Five things I ask of all who join Intelligent Union

1. Positivity

First. I quote Vernon Howard on this:

“Procrastination is illogical from every viewpoint. It is like the man who wanted to cross the stream, so he sat on the bank to wait for all the water to run by.”

It is obvious. With positivity things become possible. So. Positivity is the outcome of right mental movement. It does not mean that you have to be positive about bad things, but it means that you will contribute positively to make things better.

So. You must have healthy positive energy and confidence, not insane negativity that drags other people under and steals all their time, but energy that gives other people energy. If you know you are a complaining person, not happy with anything, constantly feeding of the positivity of others, being like a black hole, not learning not wanting to find positivity then we will still help you and your children through politics, but quite frankly, we are not interested in having you inside of our movement.

First solve your mental disorder, come in balance, maybe by just snapping out of it, maybe by reading about how to get happy and positive, maybe through meditation, and then come back when you are ready! If you are a positive person full of positive energy, then feel ready to read further! If you know you are not ready then please leave Intelligent Union!

2. Think correctly – Be awake – No blind belief

Your mind must not only be positive all in fluffy pink clouds of delusion. No. It must be be in order and ready to grow. This does not mean that you cannot have a personal belief in God, but it means that you are no longer using any type of religion as your base for finding the truth. If “God” for you is truth, pure love and unity then this will work fine, but if it is a religious text written by people long ago, then forget it!

Gautama Buddha, after becoming awake, could clearly not have been a follower of fantasies and superstitious practices of Buddhism and this quote from Gautama Buddha proves it:

Do not go by revelation;
Do not go by tradition;
Do not go by hearsay;
Do not go on the authority of sacred texts;
Do not go on the grounds of pure logic;
Do not go by a view that seems rational;
Do not go by reflecting on mere appearances;
Do not go along with a considered view because you agree with it;
Do not go along on the grounds that the person is competent;
Do not go along because “the recluse is our teacher.”
Kalamas, when you yourselves know: These things are unwholesome, these things are blameworthy; these things are censured by the wise; and when undertaken and observed, these things lead to harm and ill, abandon them…
Kalamas, when you know for yourselves: These are wholesome; these things are not blameworthy; these things are praised by the wise; undertaken and observed, these things lead to benefit and happiness, having undertaken them, abide in them.

It clearly means you cannot be a blind follower of almost anything, not even science or Intelligent Union and absolutely not a blind follower of me, the leader in the party. No. You must love the truth and you must consequently love to be wrong in order to be able to be a member of Intelligent Union.

So, in fact, most of the ones who join this party must first drop almost all ideas about everything and begin new. You must now investigate things BEFORE you have opinions about them!

I repeat it because it is important. You must now begin to investigate things BEFORE you have opinions about them!!!! This means that when you are wrong you must change and when Intelligent Union is wrong we must change and if one day the Intelligent Union does not change when it is wrong you must leave it and make a better Intelligent Union just like I left many political movement not wanting to see the truth as it is !!!

That’s right. Do absolutely not work with people living in delusion! You do not want to have endless discussions with people who have beliefs based on no substance. Work together with people with a scientific mind as well as an open awake mind that can see possibilities!

We do not claim that science or people claiming to be scientist or people with an open awake mind are always correct. No. Science and awake people are being proven wrong again and again. This is a natural part of this process. All is likely or less likely in our quest for the truth.

New scientific evidence and awake peoples theories has been replaced by evidence that clarifies and brings us closer to the truth. What we all agree on is that basic scientific method, open awake minds and deliberative discourse is essential. We must all be open for change if proven wrong.

To further explain what it is to think correctly give you a quote from Jiddu Krishnamurti:

“If the psychological house is in disorder, if what you are is in disorder, what is the point of meditating? It is just an escape. It leads to all kinds of illusions. “

I re-write Krishnamurti’s text in a more positive way:

If your mind is in order there is real reason to meditate or do introspection. Meditation is a way to see the truth. It leads us to better analysis and more likely conclusions.

So, you must, as a member, first study some psychology and some philosophy in order to be able to think correctly and you can not be a blind follower of any religion, ideology or political movement. If you are, then move away from it all for a while and do meditation in solitude!

3. Meditation / Introspection

First. Yoga is not meditation. Yoga is preparing the body for meditation. Your body is the vessel of your mind so yoga can be very beneficial, but acrobatic extremes are naturally pointless or even dangerous for your happiness and your health, but clearly you must meditate or do introspection often to become intelligent.

Meditation and introspection has many benefits for a mind in order. It helps you to find new creative solutions to unresolved problems. It helps you to see the holistic perspective more clearly. It helps you to be relaxed and find pure love inside. It helps you to see things in a long-term perspective and it reduces the ego and give rise to altruistic action.

Meditation might even bring you in direct contact with God or at least with the emotional experience of something that can be labeled as “God”, “pure love”, “unity” or “higher truth”, no matter if this sensation created Universe or not.

Personally I have experienced God and wishes coming true asking Universe for help, but my own experience could also be explained by psychological terms like “euphoria”, “self-fulfilling prophecy”, “goal orientation” just as well as by other terms found in “new age” books.

A nice quote from Jiddu Krishnamurti:

“What is important in meditation is the quality of the mind and the heart.”

…and what I do believe Jiddu Krishnamurti means with “heart” is the emotional awareness and the feeling of oneness that we call “Pure Love” or altruism.

4. Pure Love

You must have a pure love for yourself, but also for nature, animals and the future generations. Pure love is not passionate love, it is not clinging, wanting, grabbing like a nervous monkey.

I quote Jiddu Krishnamurti on love:

“Even the love of a mother for her child is not love. If the mother really loved her child, do you think the world would be like this? She would see that he had the right food, the right education, that he was sensitive, that he appreciated beauty, that he was not ambitious, greedy, envious. So the mother, however much she may think she loves her child, does not love the child.”

To make this clear. If you love nature, animals, your own child and the future generations you will contribute actively to create a world in balance. You will not only put garbage in the right container fooling yourself that you did enough and at the same time ignore other important scientific facts and other important actions.

You will definitely not belong to a hypocritical religion overpopulating the world with more of the same kind of idiots praising the actions of for example Jesus and then doing the opposite of his teachings. No, my friend, if you claim you know what love is, you will do your best to help all children of the world long-term to become more intelligent, healthy and in balance with nature.

If you are not a hypocrite, then you will do your best to make all children all have good education and thereby making them free thinkers and you will do your best to make them develop kindness and you will make sure that they all appreciate beauty and that they find a sense of oneness and generosity towards each other and with such a pure love in you action will come automatically.

5. Action

So, if you enter the party, and actually find that you are doing all the steps above but not doing any pure loving long-term actions then at least one of them is not right.

A good qoute from Jiddu Krishnamurti:

“One can go on endlessly reading, discussing, piling up words upon words, without ever doing anything about it. It is like a man that is always ploughing, never sowing, and therefore never reaping.”

– So if you join and then make no effort on a daily basis then quickly make sure you do it right and find it! Find the positivity, be awake and open minded, do meditation, find pure love and then act on it! Reach out in all ways imaginable to reach the end goal! Be outrageous if needed but do try new things if other thing does not work! Have no shame or regrets! The only one to be ashamed is the one who does not try his or her very best in every moment of action! Act with full power and confidence because you know what the end result is if we don’t succeed and you know what a ecological paradise we can create if we do succeed.

Vernon Howard & Epicurus

Vernon Howard talks about the real reward of higher truth.

Something to think about. I’d also like to quote Epicurus at the same time.

“Luxurious food and drinks, in no way protect you from harm. Wealth beyond what is natural, is no more use than an overflowing container. Real value is not generated by theaters, and baths, perfumes or ointments, but by philosophy.”/Epicurus
