Feeling The Brain's Potential

I'm always amazed at how much and how little we humans use our brain.  Its a major organ in our body and one that we can't do without, but yet so often we treat it as if it is nothing more than a collection of cells and tissues.  Of course, I'm sure one could insert all kinds of jokes here about how people use their brains, but that's not the point of this blog post.

I would like to have everyone reading this just take a moment and say hello to your brain.  OK, if that didn't feel awkward, then maybe you want to repeat that one again (or maybe you don't).  You see, most of us just aren't in touch with our brains, although we depend upon them to get through our day.

One of the ways we fail to connect with our brain is by not seeing the potential we have in our life.  We have so much power within the cells that make up our brain and we only tap into a very little part of it each day.  Most of the time this is because we are running too hard and too busy to stop a moment and connect with it.  If you ignore it, you won't grasp the full potential of it.

A Willing Heart And An Open Mind

I'm touched by so many people, places, and events.   It amazes me just to see different parts of this planet that I live on.  The streets and sidewalks share stories that if you listen closely, you will hear their whispers.  The sky observes everything below as if it is much more than we can see. Every breath of air speaks volumes beyond the casual sentence.

I don't understand why people fight so much with one another.  I don't understand why there seems to be so much hatred displayed on TV and in the media.   It boggles my mind that all too often, our differences are highlighted, more than the oneness we share as human.

Maybe what I'm writing here seems all too liberal and as if I have my head in the clouds.  Anyone who feels that way is of course entitled to this view.  Unfortunately, I would disagree with that assessment and just ask if it is possible to step away from these walls that we put up and these beliefs we hold so tight in our life.

It just pains me to see humans take on the view promoted by the advertisement and marketing world in conjunction with the media and news purveyors.  It pains me to see us lose our creativity and humanness in lieu of things that really don't matter in life.
