wisdom of God

Eye contact is one of the important factor in effective communication.the colour of the eye is important.I am talking about the colour of sclera……it is white.

It is  because of the wisdom of God,the creator. The colour of sclera is white in all human beings,inspite of the colour of skin,if the colour  of the sclera was black, (imagine the boy in picture with black scelara ),we could not even make out where the person is looking….a complete black eye (both cornea and scelara) is scary……and may make our verbal communication,a difficult task.

 

a burning bush

I was watching “The Power of Persistence Part 2 -by  Reinhard Bonnke in YouTube.

unexpectedly I got a feeling of fire, a cool ‘burning bush’ within my heart

Anatomically it is very difficult to locate the area,

it is behind the sternum, the lower part of the sternum.

it is a kind of burning sensation…but cool,

a kind of  pulsating electricity due to

so much electrical activities in solar plexus

This celestial experience of a touch with God’s being

is difficult to explain.

it is a kind of extra sensory perception

a perception with sixth sense

a sense of soul…..or spirit.(both are indistinguishable for me)

a perception without any external sensory stimuli.

I asked him…..God ,if you can give this kind of perception

why cant you appear in front of me?

He never replied

he was so silent

I know ….a person without faith cant please God

 

emotionally charged thoughts

a mind is a colash

of ideas,images, impulses ,  and emotions.

the cognitive field of ideas is made from the assemblage of different ideas contributed by many people.

The only space which I can occupy in it , is my own imagination(creativity).

this imagination has my own ideas(synthesis) from thesis(others ideas)challenged by the

antithesis of logic.

These ideas are in the form of thoughts.

every second, mind is getting renewed by a process of accomodation and assimilation of new ideas, and gain new  insight and emotional state.

(if an axe of cast iron is an idea,an axe of stainless steel with a long hand  is assimilation, minor changes and a saw is a product of accommodation,major changes)

there is nothing changes so fast as mind

no clouds in the sky

no waves in the sea……….thoughts are quicker than lightening.

A normal person may get 36000 to 60000 thoughts in a day

most of them are repeated thoughts(rumination)

and 60 % of these repeated thoughts are negative thoughts

the speed of thought processing varies with the individual

the people who process thoughts quickly are more intelligent .

and they talk rapidly.

however I think speed of thought processing is linked to content of thoughts

because content of thoughts makes it emotionally charged

when we get angry we process thoughts faster

this is true with anxious thoughts too

In other words,mood  and affect are  important contributor to the speed of thought processing

a depressed person process thoughts slower than normal person

and manic faster than normal person,is a well known fact

but similer condition is applicable to normal people with normal changes in   emotional states -(affect).

the content of thoughts changes emotional state  and vice versa and that in turn changes the  speed of thoughts .

the scientific dreams

Science is a half truth……..

it is  based only on objectivity….and that  makes it incomplete.

it excludes subjectivity…a vast realm of truth.

And truth has two wings-objectivity and subjectivity.

how can we assess objectively a dream or dreaming?

Dreaming is real…it is a truth….even the content appears real during the dreaming.

but we can’t objectively assess any dream

Physiologically…..dreaming is

a state in which there is increased eyeball movement…rapid eye movements(REM)

there is decreased  muscle tone,

EEG changes -sawtooth waves-similar to the wakeful state

and human beings are poikilothermic during the state…..

This is the objective assessment of dreaming.

or as an objective abstract  of  science, psychologically,  a dream is a meaningful reflection of unconscious mental functioning,

an adaptive function related to emotion,   may not be even meaningful at all.

or as a cognitive view, a dream is a kind of learning and memory consolidation.

These assumptions are somewhat objective because they are based on the areas of brain getting stimulated(fMRI)  or neurotransmitters released during dreaming.

Still, the objectivity mentioned above is nothing closer to the truth.

I believe subjective experience (subjectivity)is greater truth than objectivity of science in some areas of human experience.

This is true with some of the spiritual(I dont want to call religious) experiences.

My dream is a world with soulful interactions between people beyond the half truth of  objectivity ….beyond science…even the logic.

stress


stress

has two components

cognitive stress(stress as thoughts)

affective stress(stress as emotion)

both can evoke physiological changes(increased glucocorticoid)

both can evoke physical responses(increased heart rate)

stress can appear with its only one component

and stress can express through the body without any of its components

it can express through organs(diabetes)

or through body parts(aphthous ulcer in tongue)

it can express through multiple body parts or organs simultaneously

or just through one organ or two organs.

these two organs act as companion organs

gastro intestinal tractGIT) and skin are two such companion organs.

some people express their stress as allergic reaction in skin

if it suppressed using some anti allergic drugs,stress will manifast as excessive gas&/movement disorder of GITand vice versa.

fluidity and flexibility of body to tackle the stress is amazing.

and the person may not even aware that he /she is stressed.

 

attention

vincent-van-gogh-selfportrait

-from Vincent-VanGogh-self-portrait(detail)-

Attention is a kind of state of mind,

in which, there is a maintenance of awareness, persistently, on particular mental activity for a period.

Neuroanatomically,three structures in the brain is important for attention: Ascending reticular activating system, thalamus, and cortex(mainly right frontal lobe).In terms of neuronal activity, it is the result of synchronization of neuronal firing in various parts of cortex .

Why some children are unable to focus on particular activity?

It is because of easy distractibility or attention deficit.

And they became hyperactive, jumping from one activity to another.

Which may be socially inappropriate.And society may respond negatively to such children.

The children may develop low self esteem and defensive kind of rebellious behaviour,even to conduct disorder and substance abuse

Modern science is searching for the reason.

It can be due to prenatal(during pregnancy) exposure to food additives, food colouring agents.preservatives,toxins, and sugar.In my experience of clinical evaluation, most of the mothers of children with ADHD have a history of  exposure to ‘moderate to severe’   stress during pregnancy.

silence is golden

song1

(“Song of Solomon” oil painting by Slavujac)

In the eyes,we could see the

undercurrents of unspoken feelings……

we were sitting together….

spending lavishly  the time,in oblivion,

the space between us was in blissful  silence,

sharing a harmonious responsiveness…..

we were learning a lesson…..

‘communication can occur in several levels”

and imbibing the feeling….the reflection….

“there is nothing more than us”.

(Song of Solomon 7.12“Let us rise early and go to the vineyards; Let us see whether the vine has budded, And its blossoms have opened, And whether the pomegranates have bloomed. There I will give you my love. 13“The mandrakes have given forth fragrance; And over our doors are all choice fruits, Both new and old, Which I have saved up for you, my beloved.…)
