September, 2008 Newsletter - EARTH TRAINING
A newborn baby possesses the natural potential for unconditional love and trust. So what happens to us as we grow up to change this potential, causing us to shut down, withhold our love, and hide who we are? It is called life. The way in which we perceive the world around us determines our level of success, our degree of power, and our place in society.
According to developmental research, there are eight brain circuits
that determine how we will process and react to life’s experiences and
how we process information. The first four brain circuits in human development
determine how connected or isolated we will be from our family, our culture,
and the collective consciousness. Unless we have balanced these four
circuits, we will never be able to achieve a consistent and ongoing connection
with our Higher Self. Most of the four billion people living in third-world
countries are locked in desperate day-to-day survival and cannot consistently
connect to their Higher Selves.
First Four Brain State Circuits
Here is a quick overview where
you can determine for yourself how balanced you are in the first four
brain states. I am grateful to Timothy Leary for his insights into
Albert Einstein said that the most important thing we can
learn about a person we choose to partner with, either personally or
in business, is how they perceive the world. If a person believes the
world to be unsafe, he or she will get up each morning and circle the
wagons. Good luck in developing a close, trusting relationship.
:Learning About Power
The second brain state, the emotional/territorial circuit or ego, is
imprinted during the toddler stage, when we begin to stand, walk, and
struggle for power within the family. Once activated, this circuit identifies
the stimuli that automatically triggers territorial rules, emotional
games, pecking order, and aggressive or submissive behavior.
When It All Changed
of the third brain state takes place when we begin to interact with
objects in the environment. This state defines our capacity to receive,
integrate, and transmit signals and determines the degree and style
of cleverness/clumsiness with which our minds and hands will handle
ideas and tools. This third circuit deals with the transmission of
culture across generations and introduces the concepts of invention,
time, calculation, and prediction.
Boys and Girls and Letting Go
The fourth brain state is activated at puberty with the glandular release of sexual neurochemicals. Our first orgasms or mating experiences imprint moral, sexual, and social roles that usually remain constant for life, but are influenced by what society considers right and wrong. The imprinting of this circuit determines preferred sexual roles and favorite modes of sexual pleasure, as well as ideas about reproduction and parenthood. Many people spend a lifetime hiding his or her real sexual desires by mimicking the accepted sex roles of society and will only reveal true preferences to a trusted partner.
The fourth circuit could also be called the guilt circuit because many of us modify our behavior based on social acceptance or disapproval. The first effort in most mystical traditions is to change the normal fourth circuit attachment by having their followers either take a vow of celibacy (if they are on the right-hand path) or participate in group sexual activities (if they are on the left-hand path), such as the followers of Aleister Crowley.
