Does anyone “know” the reason Man, especially in the West, worships the brain and thinking so highly?
Well, the paradoxical answer is that the brain [driven by, and controlled by the MIND] continually searches for the Truth.. which neither the brain [which is physical], nor the MIND [which is invisible] will never be able to perceive… but the brain [in those people whose thoughts are largely controlled by the MIND] is incapable of comprehending that Truth is not physical, and cannot therefore be known by physical means. And “physical means” refers to the brain which the MIND must operate through on Earth. But neither the brain nor the MIND realize they search for that which they will never experience… because neither can perceive the unique Energy of the Spiritual dimension [Within which Truth hides].
And subtly “built-into” Man is Delusional Thinking [a part of the MIND] which causes the brain to “think” that if it can spell the term Soul, define it, and use it in a sentence, then of course the brain “knows” what the Soul is.
In 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, we read this: What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which ye have of God and ye are not your own? 20: For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your Spirit which is God’s.#1
In other words… When a Soul enters the physical dimension, it takes-on a physical body which enables it to operate on the physical dimension. A part of this physical body is the physical brain, and being unable to “see” that which is not physical, many [perhaps even most] people do not question what they cannot perceive, except to call everything Spiritual by the name “unknown” [or “not provable”]. And the Atheist just calls everything he or she is unable to perceive by the term “nothing”. And, of course we are all taught that only a fool pursues nothing.
How then do we explain those people who profess to possess a “faith” in the invisible of life? I mean… what explains those people who hold a belief in God that is quite separate from the human [physical] body? A God that the Bible tells us is an invisible Spirit whose existence [other than as the Spirit Within Man], is invisible to both the brain and the MIND of Man?
What is more natural for Man to believe than that which he/she can see, taste, touch, hear, and feel… [which is why we believe the MIND] when it tells us that this physical reality is the only reality there is? And for modern mental health [or what I refer to as “BS&bp” (Behavioral Science and the oxymoron “behavioral psychology”), well, they have done their best over the last century to deny, ignore, and eliminate the Esoteric [invisible] dimensions of Man. And finally, the vast majority of people in science are taught that the brain is the greatest thing mankind has ever known.
So, it is quite reasonable for education [which naturally draws to itself the Intelack type personality] to believe and to teach that worshiping the brain is what every intelligent person should do.
So, if you possess a belief in God, and a sense of the Spiritual Truth from Within yourself, count yourself as more than just fortunate. It is pure Grace that your Spirit has been awakened, and it is now up to you to climb out of the hole most people find themselves in… and worship the God that dwells Within every person, commonly known as ones Soul [the Home of the Holy Ghost in Man, located at the “eye center” in Man].
#1….”Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which ye have of God and ye are not your own?… If a person were capable… this sentence holds the secrets of both the Law of Karma, and that of Reincarnation. Both of which were thought to be erased from the scriptures during the period between the 5th and the 15th Centuries by various Popes.
