I recognize what you are talking about. And I have some answers to it though. I do want to mention first though that often when I give advice to
friends and family its in the form of streaming. Think that for a moment that yourself becomes a medium for your greater self. It happens also when I
draw, I let it flow through me as a form of creative energy.
Ok, lets step back a bit and think first about the brain. How is it that is is like it is? Well if you are not in favor of the idea of evolution then
you might want to skip this part. as a visual aid I will use the development of the fetus.
Ok as you can see we all go through a truly amazing transformation from the moment the egg is inseminated in the mother.
Now another visual aid, this time of the history of building over the old.
Ok, lets head back in time to out more distand ancestors which for our example here haven't even begun walking on land. What sort of mind did these
creatures have? What did they need to grasp about their environment? What sort of competition were there between them over food and mates?
Lets think of the very basic thought processes you can. A mind without introspection, reactive to its environment and to its hardwired instincts. Lets
think of it as the very center of an onion.
Now we head forward some million years *poof* like that.
The descendants are now on land, with a rich landscape of plants, rocks, eventual pray and predators in more forms then before. The brain now have a
couple more "modules" in place, another layer on the onion.
Think now for all these millions of millions of years, that the brain has developed in a myriad of ways, the onion now have a great deal of layers.
The brain have processes going on not just from the outer layer but also from its more primitive past. It still react in a fearful way when it happens
upon something its not seen before. A member of its pack that shows sign of being "different" will be pushed out because of this primeval survival
Now we get to us. We now have a great deal of processes going on. The onion now have a great deal of layers. We have the verbal language we use every
day and that needs processing power and a place in the brain to do it. But we still have the instincts of our now very distant past. All this is part
of your physical ego.
Now we get to the part where different processes in the brain want different things. One part of the brain want to sleep more when another part knows
that if you do you will get fired for coming late (fierce social group rules).
You want to eat that pizza but you also know that it isnt good to do that (becoming fat, unhealthy, and not seen in a good light by society).
Ok now we come to the other part of this post, until now we have covered the physical ego. Now we get to the part in which I cant prove anything but
will continue stream anyway. Think of your body as a part of yourself. Your vessel to see the world. outside the multiversial sphere of existence lies
our true selfs.
Our true selfs exists in a state of love, like if it was light it would be like being in the center of the sun. Love is everywhere. now think for
example if you lived in the hearth of the sun. You cant know color because the searing white light exists everywhere. You cant know darkness and the
cold. So how would they be able experience anything else?
here comes the smart part, Like in a game they pick a character and a "theme" to play. Like they want to be a man and a doctor from a rich family
dealing with his entitled existence when the poor and suffering exist around him and is treated by him. Or "play" a women living in a country hostile
towards women. They are all opportunities to learn and experience. lets say the woman in this case gets murdered by her husband, she will "return".
All the things that the woman learned will be part of this greater self.
Now think that for this "game" to be effective you cant remember that it is a game. You always have to begin as a "blank slate" memory wise. Skills
though is a different thing entirely. Often we are drawn to that we have done "before". Another is in the form of intuition, the feel of knowing.
So we now have the ego of the body and the shard of our greater selfs in us. Often enough we come to the crossroads where you either trust your inner
knowing or bend to your ego.
I could go on forever, but I wanted to finish this up by saying that it is a good idea to try to "feel" where your different thoughts come from.
