Many people carry with them the misconception that the mind or brain is only necessary when completing a homework from school, or when solving a math problem, or when we need to memorize a particular line. And in a sense they are right, this type of activities do require a much more significant mental effort than the effort which is required on other trivial or more entertaining things.
Where the faulty misconception comes in, is when we ask how about everything else that falls outside of that category?
How about when we want to tell our friends what we did over the weekend? How about when we are watching a movie? Crossing the street? Thinking of a joke? Or even checking our Facebook?
Many of the previous questions might seem to require very little mental focus or intensity if any at all. Thus, people tend to understand this type of situations as trivual, “mindless” situations.
Nevertheless, we can very safely say, that none of this experiences or situations would have ever been possible were it not for our brain. Were it not for us having a sane, sober mind.
When one thinks a little harder about this topic, one could reach the conclusion that the brain is not only used in school or work, but the brain is rather ALWAYS used, at all times, in any situation.
Thus, although it might seem as if something is happening almost automatic without any use of the mind, in reality not even the slightest bit of it would be possible if we did not have a reasoning mind.
Because of this belief, many people tend to go through much of their lives in a kind of automatic mode. Not paying much attention, not being too aware, of life and life happening to them and throughout all of their surroundings.
If we make an experiment, and make our minds not function properly as it should function on a healthy, sober, individual, we would come to realize that all of this activities and situations become almost impossible.
A great example would be, an irrational level of alcohol intoxication which would biologically and chemically change our brains and thus our minds. Under such intoxication, what seems to be the simplest of activities can become the hardest task to complete in the universe. Many times even impossible.
This experiment could very well lead us to formulate a theory which explains that the brain, our neurons, and our mind, our involved in every single thing we do, every single step we take, every single breath we take, even every single time our eyes blink.
The fact that the mind is involved in all if this, leads me to the belief that the mind is indeed everything. That there is nothing we could ever experience, feel, see, hear, smell, touch, sense, do, even if it is the most subtle thing in the universe, it must by nature, be processed by our brains/minds.
Now, if one agrees with this theory, then one would know and understand that all of life, and all that we call and experience as our life, would never ever be possible were it not for our brain/mind.
Therefore, the mind is not only in action in school, but the mind is also in action through every single millisecond of our lives. Even when we sleep! And it could be even more active than when we are awake then.
Every single thing we know how to do, every single thing we are capable of performing, every single thing we understand, wether from school or from outside of it can be possible only because of our minds/brains.
Now, God had given us an unbelievably powerful ability to develop our brains in whichever way we desire throughout all of our lives. No matter the age. This is the reason why, as we grow, experience, practice, imagine, understand, vusualuze, and think of any certain thing consistently, we get better at doing it. Because we are in effect, trainingg our brain, stimulating our neurons, creating new neural pathways, strengthening neural pathways, and training our brains to grow in that aspect or area and continue to get much better at it.
That is why you can never fake being a genius, or doing something which you could never experienced before.
This would mean that absolutely every and any thing which you are willing to develop, which you are willing to become better at, must be engraved in the brain and then developed throughout time.
Do not fall victim to the mistaken idea and grave misconception that we are born ready to do, know, understand, or be a specific something. Don’t forget that everything must be developed in the brain, and could come only from the brain.
By following this logic we could safely say that the use and intense application of the brain into anything, combined with a high side of wisdom and intelligence reaharding that which is pursued, will lead to a brain which is a lot stronger, a lot more powerful,and a lot more capable at performing the given feat.
Never think that they have it natural, it may seem like that but no, just like you and me others had to also develop their brains, and in the same way they may think we have it natural in the ways in which we are strong.
Now, the fascinating thing about the brain, is that since it is absolutely everything in our lives, then it can be strenghtgen and infinitely further developed in absolutely ANYTHING we do in life.
Once a person becomes aware that the mind is being used and very neccesary even in random, trivial, everyday life, then the person can start to better learn to use their brain to live life.
Whoever leatns to use their brain to lice life gets way ahead of the pack, gets way ahead of the crowd, while seeing and experiencing life from a much higher, much more clear, and much more defined state of consciousness.
Once a person deeply grasps the understanding of the mind and how it is the means and center for absolutely everything we exoerience and do in our lives, then that person starts to activate their brains and minds in ways that highly differ from the brain of the crowd and/or average.
Therefore, just like in an exam, apply your mind, your attention, your focus, to every single thing you do and every single circumstance you find yourself in, and you will soon enough develop a mind that sees a lot more than others, hears a lot more, feels a lit more, thinks a lot more, senses a lit more, understands a lot more, knows a lot more, processes a lot more, and in short goes to a much higher state of consciousness.
Use it intently at all times, be aware, be present, and pay very close attention, because in this way you will discover an infinite universe that you never would have thought existed. And once you discover that universe, keep moving forward, because there still is more. A lot more. An infinite more.
