Our Creative Brain

Our Creative Brain

A direct link to the field of information seems possible and we move closer to the possibility that the brain is the receiver of mind, not its creator. This is important to the afterlife because upon dying we have no brain but do desire to keep our minds.

Why don’t we access more of the mind field ourselves? In fact, we do. The brain adapts to the field at will. If you intend to learn Chinese ideograms, of which there are thousands, you can apply yourself, and gradually a system of meaningless ink strokes will be transformed into a meaningful area of knowledge.

Once mastered, the Chinese language becomes part of you; it becomes second nature, and you can proceed to use it for creative purposes. In essence, you have accessed the mind field and willed your own evolution. You have made a leap nearly as significant as when Paleolithic man discovered that meaningless vocal noises could be transformed into spoken language.

Intelligence and meaning aren’t only “in here” as a subjective creation of the brain or “out there” as a freestanding object. The give-and-take by which the brain creates meaning is also how it creates the world and creates itself. All these processes actually belong to one process, the self “curving back onto itself to create again and again,” as Lord Krishna says.

The field is innately creative. It formed the human brain, which is so receptive that it took the next leap and learned to create new thoughts, abilities, and memories on its own. Our brains are still acting out the total activity of the cosmos, but we happen to claim that “I am thinking” when it’s just as true to say “the mind field is thinking through me.”

Mind is not brain, nor vice-versa. Connected, yes. Ever use a computer (which is like a brain) to do something? You're not your computer. It's a tool, a device, that you use. The computer cares not what it does or what data it computes. It takes you to care about how a computer (including your brain) works or what it does or what data it gives out.

Wishful thinking, meaningless drivel, faulty analogy, nonsense from start to finish.

The creative brain or better known as our computer is what ego uses to keep us separated from our creator.
Our true source lies in our heart and when we access it using the 7 laws of the universe in particular Love , forgiveness and compassion then we are well on our way to waking up and overcoming the control ego has over us and we can see that it was all just a dream and that we were not separated but just asleep having the dream.
Remember Adam was put to sleep to create Eve but nowhere is it said that he woke up.
