Last week, we looked at “The Mystery of Birth and How you are Born into that House”. We looked closely at soul, spirit, volition, propensity and reincarnation in detail.
Today, we shall concentrate on how your spiritual part gets connected to your body and how you can utilise these aids offered you from the Almighty God.
The Back Brain, Intuitive Perception, and the Frontal Brain
Every normal human being who has not cultivated one-sided development has two parts of his brains functioning well. The back brain which is also called the cerebellum receives all spiritual impressions and passes it on to the frontal brain or what is called the cerebrum. The back-brain connects you to the spiritual realm for both receipt and transmission of spiritual messages while the frontal brain converts this into words and action.
Take a radio, a television or even the early mobile phones. They have antennae at the back that connect them to signal points being the transmission centres. If the antennae are well–positioned, transmission and radio signals are well received. The frontal part of the television or the radio is for viewing and hearing of the messages. Well, these processes were just borrowed from God who already designed your brain as such. Your connection to the spiritual world is held fast in the back brain. The back brain then transmits this information to the frontal brain for actions to be taken in the physical world.
Your intuitive perception or inner voice is triggered by the back brain, which is more spiritual. You might have experienced it yourself or other people talking about “something told me not to board that bus and after obeying my inner voice, I heard that bus was involved in an accident some hours later” or other experiences of that nature. What is that “something” people refer to? It is your inner voice which receives a transmission from the Spiritual Sphere. Your spiritual advice and warnings are contained in there. With it, you will escape all the troubles of this earth if only you “trust and obey” like the songwriter say.
Over the ages of man’s existence in Creation, various activities of man have led to the cut in pure and unhindered transmission between the Godhead and man on this earth. We shall look at this in the section called Hereditary Sin.
Intellect, Knowledge, and Wisdom
We are in the habit of using intellect, knowledge and wisdom interchangeably as if they are one. We need to look at the spiritual part of every aspect of things that have been adulterated over the ages.
Intellect originates from the frontal brain! Intellect does not have any spiritual impressions and, therefore, it is limited to space and time; this earth. People who are called the intellectuals are mostly people who have read books written by others and try as much as possible to quote and apply them. On many occasions, intellectuals reject anything spiritual and are not prepared to accept anything that cannot be seen physically. Our scientists, professors, and academics are mostly in this category and on most occasions refuse to accept anything spiritual. They are only using their frontal brains and most often, they cannot receive any transmission from the spiritual realm.
Also, our sportsmen who have one-sidedly train their bodies in order to be able to perform during sporting events and all others whose activities are only geared towards the physical things of this Creation shall be labelled “intellectuals”. The Pharisees and the Scribes during the time of Jesus could be seen in this category and for that matter, Jesus could not call any of them as His Disciples.
Knowledge is nothing but acquired experiences. You could be knowledgeable about a particular subject or area of life like accountancy, medicine, legal matters, etc. Most often, knowledgeable people combine both spiritual part and physical parts of things together and, therefore, are better placed in creation than the intellectuals; better placed in the sense of the Almighty God. This has nothing to do with earthly possessions which even Satan has in abundance!
Wisdom is a special grace of dispensation from the Lord God Almighty. To have wisdom, you are fully dependent on the transmissions from the Spiritual Sphere; where the back brain is fully functional as compared to the other people. We have read of Solomon being a man of wisdom; a dispensation granted by God. In this wise, Solomon’s brain would have been completely taken over by transmissions from God; in the early years when he hadn’t given up to vanity! Wisdom, man, is transmissions from God. Anybody who makes himself available shall receive from the Lord.
Over-cultivation of the intellect, that is the frontal brain, has led to what is called the hereditary sin. Over the ages, the back brain has been shrinking in activity, transmission from God is cut or limited and people have actually turned against things of spiritual activities. Even today many people including churches are afraid to use the word “spirit”; forgetting that we are spiritual beings. People have turned against godly things and are pursuing only intellectual or earthly things.
Now the part of the hereditary sin is that children born are now having enlarged frontal brains as compared to the back brain. With this, children would not even like to follow their parents to church or participate in any spiritual activities but they have given up to night clubs, drinking joints, bad literature/videos, drugs, sexual activities and all forms of evil. Man, that is how you have caused your defection from God; you have departed from God through your intellectual activities which your children have now inherited.
Go back to where you’ve fallen!
Man of today, with your lust for the intellect and hatred for spiritual things, are you ready to return home?
If the man fails it is always through his own fault, never because of the strength or weakness of his specific gifts; for just the fundamental gift, the actual power, the strongest part of man, which is the bearer of all life and immortal, is given to all alike. In this respect, no man has an advantage over another. All differences are due only to the way in which it is used.
Neither can this fundamental gift, the immortal spark, ever be dimmed or tarnished. It remains pure, even amid the greatest filth. You need only tear the veil which you have wrapped around you through the voluntary limitation to which you have subjected your perceptive ability! Then, without any transition whatever, it will flare up again as pure and clear as it was at the beginning, unfolding itself fresh and strong to unite with the spiritual.
Rejoice that this treasure lies inviolable within you! It is of no importance whether you are esteemed by your neighbours or not. Every bit of dirt that has gathered like a dam around this spirit-spark can be cast aside through honest goodwill. If you have achieved this and again liberated the treasure, you are worth just as much as he who never buried it.
But woe unto him who through indolence completely closes himself to willing what is good. In the hour of Judgment, this treasure will be taken from him, and he will then cease to be.
Therefore awake, you who keep yourselves closed, you who have drawn the cover of your intellect, with its limited ability to understand, over your intuitive perception!
