How do you navigate your own mind?
originally posted by: LucidWarrior
My question for you is, like it says in the title, How do you navigate your own mind? Is there different techniques? I read in a fantasy book once a most intriguing concept which wasn't elaborated upon, of mental geometries. Like I kid you not, I have a hard time searching my own memories at times.
Physics is governed by metaphysics, though the latter presupposes the former, and I feel lost amidst the sea of philosophy with no oar, only a makeshift raft and a net. Wonderful things, I find, I feel, I see. And yet... With no way to be, other than to become; for one lost in stagnation it's hard to overcome The battle is never lost, remember this All you ever do is your best Just remember to try Always, and you will fly
We occasionally asked Moshe why, with his background and other abilities, he decided to teach in this way, through the body. He reminded us first of all, that movement is life, and explained in detail how the nervous system is already in movement even as we think of doing something, before any outward movement is evident. He often had us imagine movements to perfection before attempting them outwardly - a surprisingly effective way to improve out functioning. And, secondly, he used the metaphor, "If you want to get somewhere, why not go down the broad avenue?" By this he meant that a good 90 percent of the information coming into the brain at any moment is triggered by the body's minute movements in space; thus it makes sense to get into the brain through the motor cortex - the broad avenue of movement.
However, our body is a primary part of us as we live in human form. Too often this part of ourself is neglected. We attempt to become spiritual by leaving our body behind, by numbing it, or disregarding it, and then turning our total attention to our mind, emotions, psyche, or spirit. It is clear to me that we must bring our bodies along, and that our challenge as earthly beings is to bring enlightenment to our full and total being, to embody spirit fully. Moshe's focus on awareness and on the body helped bring the light of consciousness into each cell of our bodies, and to very effectively bring our fully integrated self into the process of personal growth and spiritual work.

...the sadness I continually feel for the things I have failed to do, failed to be, and have become in times of dire loss, wrecks me...
What can one possibly do about the past? Does anyone have the ability to affect the past?
The only sense that rings true: is right-here, right-now.

As far as I know it is 20 or less. You could ask any Mod or try to find the answer in the freshman forum. I tried quickly to find it, but gave up. LOL
I often listen to my heart and let out whatever feelings or emotional residue needs to come out, not in this case expressed through art but a kind of energy through my mind and body, that releases like an invisible steam, if you know what I mean.
When comfortable I allow myself to drift down into the lower reaches of myself, but only where it feels comfortable.
always try to keep my heart centred in myself and feel my way through the rest of me
