Phenomenon: Left Brain – Right Brain
I truly believe that there are posts made for some people. Some texts, some books are meant to be read and understood by those – somehow – chosen few.
Deeply believe that we are all blessed, sinners, saints, dead – alive and those who are coming, just because we are meant to be alive. we were chosen. Thats how I see it. Thats why I believe everyone is special. Including you – the person reading this right now.
So what do I want ?
Been reading some books lately that are MIND oriented. These books all agree that you should differinciate between your left and right brain.
What does the left brain do ? what does it want with me ?
Well, it is the side of you that is animalistic.
Meaning, it always wants you to be the best, the first, the biggest, the fastest, the most powerful, the conquerer and the OWNER of your surroundings. Wither its people or objects.
This is where spirituality comes, not religion, spirituality. This is where all the blessed souls come in with glorious names like Moses, Joseph, Zakariya, Jesus and Mohammed – Peace be upon them all. Then on an intellectual level we have Buddha, Ghandi, Teresa and Confucius.
Now what do these people want ? Please push aside the different names of religions they brought down to earth. Lets just focus on the message.
All of them wanted you to or would ask you to:
Live in peace and love on another.
Do not kill.
Do not commit adultery.
Do not steal.
Do not lie.
Do not be in haste *quick*.
Do not judge.
These are teachings that may look ordinary to you. You may say “well I could have learned this back home, these are basics, whats the big fuss ?”
These people knew how our brain worked, they didn’t know how to explain it, or maybe wanted it to be a mystery for us to solve.
What they actually did is that they gave us keys to SILENCE the LEFT brain and live in an ever so beautifully automatedRIGHT BRAIN that asks us to enjoy life, be good and give without limitation.
They wanted you to experience what abundance is like.
How ? I’ll give you three examples, one on paper, one real, and another real one, from my circle though.
Studies today show us that men commit adultery and even rape in open countries like the UK and US in an ever growing number. why ?
Studies show that their left brains are extremely active, so you find them not only committing these crimes, but also stole something, definitely lied, definitely were in haste, definitely judged and some of them even killed a person or two. Just like that.
That does not mean they are bad, cursed or extras in societies. It just means that they needed that extra attention, special care or just had a very rough child hood. Please do not think I’m allowing any of these actions to happen, I’m just showing you facts. Does not necessarily mean I approve ok ?

This one goes to a very famous – world class neuroscientist, Jill Bolte Taylor.
On the morning of December 10, 1996, Jill Bolte Taylor, a thirty-seven-year-old Harvard-trained brain scientist, experienced a massive stroke when a blood vessel exploded in the left side of her brain. She suffered from a stroke, remained conscious though. Its funny, her brain was functioning half way. Her right brain was active, her left brain was on pause.
How did she feel ?
“My left brain is doing the best job it can with the information it has to work with. I need to remember, however, there are enormous gaps between what I know and what I think I know”
She continues to say that the right side of your brain is all about NOW, how you feel NOW, what is happening to you NOW – it connects to itself to energy, to you and to the universe through movement, sound, pictures, love and joy. She says, the right brain always sees things as beautiful, complete, in union and in loving progress forward.
I know how that feels, My teacher, Eckart Tolle taught me that. I live like that every day. There is nothing more beautiful, more divine or more spiritual and connected to the almighty above other than this.

A very angry person I knew, old guy, used to be tight when it came to money and things he own. His family was in semi poverty, while his millions kept climbing higher and higher.
Had a very strange disease, not even cancer, something worse that deals with blood vessels. I was young and never knew what that illness is, he was good to me, so I went ahead and kissed his forehead and sat next to him. He didn’t say anything interesting to me, he was mumbling stuff, strange stuff.
His elder son came in, all of a sudden the old guy stopped mumbling. Gave his son a paper.
I later learned that he gave out everything he owns to his kids – I THOUGHT he would die.
Today, he is alive, surrounded by his grandsons and he regrets his OLD SELF.
He opens up to me, always, he says ” I used to be another person, I used to hold things but I never knew why – I just knew I must not give what I have to others – they are mine. Mine. everything is mine” then he laughs. Teary eyes.
He says when I became sick, that urge did not get a hold of me anymore.
I knew it. It was clear.
He was possessed by his left brain. It was definitely highly active.
This is why those who are sick, elder, in trouble or in desperate need of mercy, tend to lean on their right brain and un-knowingly block that left brain, preventing it from telling them what to do.
I know you know people like that – you’v seen it – I know you did – maybe you never saw it this way ?
When the prophets or wise people I chose up there say things like PATIENCE ! They want you to be in a form that is a 1000 miles away from HASTE.
If they say NO to adultery, they want you to control your ANIMALISTIC urges and know when to activate them.
If they say NO to stealing, they want you to work HARD for what see in front of you.
Do you get it ? am I there yet ?
They want you to silence your LEFT brain and activate its neighbor, the RIGHT brain.
Funny, the RIGHT brain is the RIGHT choice, this is who they want you to choose.
You be the judge, you do your own math, figure it out and see if this makes any sense to you. Any at all. Put your life and experiences to the test.
I do not seek that you agree with me, I just want you to maybe see this as an awakening moment. Maybe what I type here means something deep to you.
Sure hope it does.
On a personal note, I may be someone who likes to travel, listen to music and live a comfortable life, however, spirituality has been my cherished love since 2007. Thats why I am taken by those who speak about religion in a spiritual way. I am not religious. I am a spiritual muslim, huge difference. Only wise ones comprehend it.
People like Mishary Al-Kharaz, Khaled AlMathkour, Mohammed Al-Awadhi and Tariq Al-Suwaidan represent people who know a lot, religiously, but they choose to stay spiritual and show you the beauty of what prayer, holding your peace, staying in silence and some of them do meditation sessions, I’m not saying who. But they do. – They want to show you how to be self-inspired. Bring forth they energy and beauty within – not out there. You do not need anyone or anything to inspire you. You are created, chosen and brought here to earth, isn’t that enough for inspiration ? isn’t that original ?
These people talk about religion as if it is a story. You may take or leave whatever you want from what they give you, just know that they squeeze out the core of many teachings and give you the juices to enjoy.

Here is a video of Dr.Jill Bolte Taylor – a 20 minute video that summarizes everything for you. I hope the message gets across.
