– So …The Question IS:
How do we get the conscious, thought-processing-part of our individual minds into a loving relationship with the automatic processing part of our mind …that part which regulates the natural functions of these body-bags we occupy, such as breathing and the beating of the heart, without thinking about it, including but not limited to the ability to heal these bodies, when/if we don’t interfere in some of the crazy conscious AND unconscious ways in which we do that?
A dialogue on the phone with publisher Ryan Bruce, yesterday, unraveled a huge mystery for me. I’ve mentioned before that, in our seventeen year history of working together, I have often noted his superior (to mine) conscious intellect; I’ve often referred to him as one of the brightest, most well-organized people I’ve ever met.
So how come, I’ve asked myself, many, many times, does he seem so slow to understand what, to me, are simple things that work for me …particularly in what I refer to as the spiritual arena? He can seem, to me, to be stubborn and arrogant about his resistance to what I’m seeing.
I’ve often stated that we process things differently and, until the phone call yesterday, I never had a clue as to one reason he cited.
We often share what we get during our separate early Morning Prayer and meditation times alone. What he shared with me yesterday was earth-shaking because it opened the door in the conscious part of my mind to understanding something over which many people apparently stumble related to what I teach and share about transcending; meaning getting beyond my own challenges – the causes for which I am unaware.
One of the mental/spiritual tools I use and recommend for transcending mental/spiritual blocks is something that Gospel writer Luke reported that Jesus taught and which was confirmed (from a different point of view) in Mark’s Gospel; that tool is, continually demanding and knocking UNTIL I get the answer.
I don’t know or even care about the reason this tool is so effective for me in breaking through challenges in certain instances, I just know that it VERY effective.
I don’t know whether it is the sub/unconscious part of the mind OR our SPIRIT-PARENT …OR a mixture of both that brings about the breakthroughs. It simply doesn’t matter to me …all I’m concerned with is the result.
One difference between Ryan and me …and which we’ve both known for a long time: I tend to view our SPIRIT-PARENT as being separate from, or beyond all parts of the mind, as I categorize them. Ryan, along with millions of other folks, thinks of my view as “duality,” whereas he tends to view all parts of the mind as unified or “one with SOURCE” in some sort of seamless way. To me these are merely different points of view over which neither of us feels the need to argue, but I do detect an occasional tension within me over it.
Here is a difference between how we currently see things that I was not aware of until yesterday …I think of all the subconscious (which, for reasons that will immediately be clear, I will no longer refer to by that terminology) parts of the human mind as powerfully superior to the conscious part …a concept that scientific research has proven beyond any reasonable doubt.
What became apparent to Ryan, during his meditation time yesterday, was something he understood previously, but I didn’t – to Ryan, the prefix “sub” (conscious) indicates inferior. To me it simply means submerged or below the surface and, as I just indicated, I consciously consider that the other-than-conscious-part(s) of the human mind as being powerfully superior to the conscious part of the mind, but NOT infinitely so (as is our SPIRIT-PARENT, by whatever other term or name – “Infinite Intelligence,” seems an apropos title at this instance).
In other words, the other-than-conscious parts of the mind, to Ryan, ARE infinitely superior and thus equal to and with God, by whatever other title or name; and why is the distinction important to me?
The reason this is important for me (currently) to make the distinction has to do with how I employ the knocking and demanding tool and the reason it is so effective for me.
Now, get this: Ryan had a conversation with that other-than-conscious part of the mind – which from now on we will both refer to as “master mental processor” (hereafter mmp) – which (the mmp) admitted to Ryan that it had been blocking him from receiving or achieving several things.
Ryan asked the mmp why it had been blocking his progress in a couple of areas and the mmp told him the reason was because of what Ryan told me was “separation anxiety” on the part of the mmp due to its fear of separation at physical death.
I’ll leave it up to Ryan to editorialize about however my interpretation, of what he shared, differs from his interpretation, but when he discovered that his conscious mind and the mmp were not in harmony, he began consciously working at coming to an agreement with the mmp to bring them into alignment in those various areas and into singularity of purpose. I talk enough with Ryan that I have no difficulty understanding what he’s talking about here …how about you?
In, Is a New Improved Model of YOU Possible and Will You Allow it? …the previous article, which Ryan posted on Sunday 10/5/14 and to which this is a second part, I talked about the “language barrier” and if you listened to the podcast, which accompanied the article, on 10/5, you may have heard what I referenced above as a bit of tension regarding our different points of view – THEY ARE ONLY AND JUST THAT …differing points of view.
Which point of view is the correct one? If you pay attention closely enough to what Ryan said; you’ll see a key to something …the issue of singularity AND duality. The way I deal with that issue and, with which so many people enjoy bringing up with me, is that I don’t know squat, but I assume that so many people who insist upon bringing up the point are far smarter than I.
I also assume, however, that since my point of view and the tool referenced above works for me (and Ryan admits to using it on occasion) that both points of view MAY be correct …and just as the tension between scientists in the newer Quantum Physics camp and the older Classic (or Newtonian) Physics camp resolved their differences by realizing BOTH/AND are correct – just that data and experiments must be understood on the basis that the results appear different when applied differently. Neither is right or wrong or correct or incorrect, simply different.
Here’s the difference …one reason the knocking and demanding UNTIL (the point of breaking through) tool may work so well for me is because, ONE, I do believe (which doesn’t make it true) that our SPIRIT-PARENT is infinitely and inexplicably more powerful that any parts of the human mind, but that, TWO, the human mind can access the SPIRIT-PARENT through persistent use of the tool …hold on there’s more:
I also believe (which also doesn’t make it true, at least for anyone except me and those who happen to share my point of view) that part of the effectiveness of the tool has to do, in large part, with the fact that it is also aimed at the mmp to release its blocks in cooperation with our SPIRIT-PARENT as an automatic function …just as it keeps the body I occupy regulated and in perfect health …AUTOMATICALLY.
I consciously and lovingly instruct the mmp to be in constant cooperation with our SPIRIT-PARENT and it assures me that it is in total agreement, without exception. Do I claim to understand this process? No I do not; neither do I concern myself with even wanting to understand.
Now then, what difference does it make – particularly if this entire subject seems off the wall to you from your point of view?
Frankly, it doesn’t matter …and since I don’t know squat anyway, I’ll simply continue dealing with issues and people who come to me for help the way I get help …that is, by engaging BOTH the mmp AND our SPIRIT-PARENT in the way that works for me …and Ryan and others who have a different point of view will continue helping people who come to them, from their points of view.
It doesn’t matter since the evidence seems to indicate that BOTH streams of thought produce results for those who believe that either or both are possible.
Now, as the true story in the previous article about the rather amazing results during the aptitude testing at the mental health hospital indicates …by instructing the patients to approach the test in the way they would if they were “normal” made all the difference in the world as to the rate of success, just imagine the difference in results that await you if you will accept the possibility that BOTH Ryan’s AND Brad’s different seeming approaches about ways in which to attain rather dramatic improvement to LIFE and perceived reality are available.
Now consider that the repeat of what was the final paragraph in the former article is a joint effort of Brad AND Ryan AND those who participate without need of argument:
“Spiritual Healing Source will be introducing a brand new Brad Cullen book …Integration of the Mind and a work book called The Companion in the next few weeks along with a brand new website called www.lightchoiceworks.com* [no, we are not discontinuing www.spiritualhealingsource.com] and some exciting, but very practical personal growth services including FREE online, webinars called Virtual Reality Workshops.
* www.lightchoiceworks.com is under construction and while already online during the assembly of the content it is not yet even partially functional.
Those of you who subscribe to SHS will be receiving an invitation to participate in a pilot Virtual Reality Workshop via a conferencing telephone system.
