|The Quiet Mind
The most difficult thing to do is to
get out of your own way. That is because we have two minds,
(really only one mind) but actually two aspects of that one mind that
acts like two separate minds - the quiet mind and the active mind.
The quiet mind is the power side of the mind and the active mind has
no power or abilities. It only thinks it does. So, to get out of
your own way means to reach the quiet mind, and to shut out the active
mind. This is very difficult indeed. But I know a way you
can do it.
When you wake up in the morning, sit down and take in ten deep
breaths - in through the nose and out through the mouth. Then
around noontime do it again, and, again, at bedtime. I guarantee
that within a week you will slow down and become more into your quiet
mind and less in your active mind. Try it, my friend, and you
will enter into the quiet zone.
The quiet mind is your subconscious mind while the active mind is
the conscious mind. The conscious mind is in the left hemisphere
while the subconscious mind is in the right hemisphere. The left
side is what I call the "Body Mind" and the right is the "Spirit
Before you are born you dwell in the spirit world. When you
incarnate, you become attached to the body. It has a mind of its
own. It is called the Body Mind. When you are what we call
"born into this body", you are more into your spirit mind than the
body mind. Your mother prods you each day awakening you into
your body mind. She activates your senses; your body mind is
connected to your electric senses. Your nerves carry these
electrical impulses throughout your body. It is housed in the
spinal column and the brain. Think of your spinal column as the
switchboard and the brain as the computer. They work together to
activate your conscious mind. Your senses are electrical,
therefore your body mind is stronger than your spirit mind. Your
spirit mind is passive, magnetic and creative. Your body mind is
electrical, active, aggressive and non-creative. It thinks all
day long, yet never ever knows. Your spirit mind never thinks
but knows. The body mind fools us into believing it is superior,
intelligent and in control. In fact most schools teach us to use
our body mind. They teach you through the use of memorizing.
You can learn to analyze things, but not really understand them
without the use of the spirit mind.
When you are thinking with the body mind, your mind is projecting
thoughts that you already know - things you have memorized. The
spirit mind never thinks, it just knows. It can create new
thoughts, ideas, solutions, but it never thinks about them. All
thinking comes through the body mind.
When Edison had a creative thought it came via the spirit mind.
However, when he tried to think about it he could not bring it forth.
He had to use the spirit mind in conjunction with the body mind.
This is the way all things are created. The spirit mind is the
creative mind. All ideas, inventions or new thought comes to us
through the creative mind. Then we introduce the body and and
through trial and error we create the idea.
Both aspects of the mind are needed. If, or should I say when
Universities begin to think this way and when we will learn new
knowledge, not just memorize old ideas or knowledge we will begin to
truly think. This is the creative thinking. And creative
thinking is visualization, or should I say, creative visualization.
All great thinkers would create in this manner. They all had
one thing in common. They would say, "I don't know where it came
from. It just came to me." In other words, what thought came out of
them was their conscious thought. It was of the body mind.
And what thought came to them was a creative thought. All ideas
are creative thoughts. All geniuses think in this manner.
True thinking comes from the two-fold light waves of energy. One
flows into us. The other flows out of us. So when you have
an idea and you convert it to the conscious mind and put it into use,
now you have the complete creative thought.
