The Brain & the Mind, Part 2

Allies or Adversaries?

It’s not really an either/or… 

Survival plus our personal beliefs continue to present to us the universe as a dualistic choice when it reaches our conscious awareness.

The mind sees in terms of opposites:  i.e., black ~ white, good ~ bad, yes ~ no, yin ~ yang, right ~ left, friend ~ foe.

The brain sees “lukewarm”, “grey”, “maybe”; it also sees inclusive patterns and especially new choices.

When the brain and mind merge, possibilities beyond either/or and               “I didn’t realize” appear.  A shared state of recognition arises – one in which both survival needs and spiritual aspirations become the same!
