I’m no scientist, so don’t bother being a big-dumby-left-brain by scrolling down and looking for statistics. You won’t find them. You will, however, find this lovely picture…
And that makes me happy. My right brain and my heart are in cahoots, so when I engage the right brain, I see the good in the world and I’m happy (and happiness is contagious).
But when I engage my left brain (without any help from the right brain), it’s dismal. See, I have these difficult days when my left brain kicks in and hunts down the “truth about the world” that I tell myself I deserve to know. And I go from one subject to another (and another) and within a few hours, I sink into a pit of hell as my left brain races off the track like a train out of control – I’m talking way past the usual things like financial pressure, lack of work, health issues of family members, world hunger, a skin tag growing in an uncomfortable place, biting mosquitos, rising gas prices and too much traffic.
No, no, no…it’s much worse. This train goes way off the track towards GMOs, Chemtrails, New World Order, Human Trafficking and a slew of other horrendous issues that pull my interests away from normal-everyday-annoying-bull-crap-type-stressors and into hours of concern which leads to hours of research, where I learn about even bigger and nastier atrocities that are supposedly hidden from us…which in turn leads to way more concern and ultimately, depression.
And that, my friends, renders me completely useless. My energy plummets. I can’t smile. I’m not fun to be around. I become paranoid. Possibly even snappy. I basically land up in HELL and stay there until I finally get a grip and make a conscious decision to “smell the roses” again and get back into my Right brain.
My left brain can be my biggest enemy when I let it loose. I take myself too seriously at times. I take the world too seriously. And the bottom line is, I land up perpetuating the problem. Of course I know some people will jump all over that – yes, I’ve heard it before. Like the time, I commented on a Facebook post, and some other commenter (a guy I don’t know) labeled me “sheeple” and “weak” and told me I was part of the problem and said “Do the world a favor and educate yourself before you comment on something you don’t understand!”
Oddly, he and I were in agreement about the horrendous issue (it was an upsetting quote by a certain Rockefeller), but when I mentioned (in my comment) the need for us to create more love in the world, he completely lost it and launched his attack on me.
My last comment to him was “Whoa dude! I am not the enemy!” That didn’t stop him – he continued ranting about “ignorant people” [like me] “who hide [their] head in the sand!” I let it go and he got the last word – why argue with an unreasonable person who makes claims about someone they don’t even know? But he helped me to realize how a “concerned citizen” can actually perpetuate the very problem that he/she hates so much! His negativity and hatred for the elite, for GMOs, for NWO, etc., only fuels that fire. It feeds their cause! Hatred and negativity only breeds more hatred and negativity!
While he may think he’s making a difference, I can only base my opinion on energy. If it feels good, my energy is pumped up and I’m contributing good vibes to myself and to the world (like I said, happiness is contagious) and people like to be near me. If it feels horrible, my energy plummets, I’m filled with fear and negativity – and not a lot of fun to be around! That’s not helping anyone! So judge me if you will, but that’s on you.
I will say this – In a world where we all play teacher and student, I did come to the conclusion that as much as I didn’t like to be judged by some stranger, maybe, just maybe, he taught me (in an odd sort of way), that I have no right to judge either. I had based my opinion on research, but who’s to say for sure? Only the supreme creator.
Regardless of the issue, my biggest lesson is this: My left brain can be beneficial if my right brain supervises (because my right brain is led by my heart). Right brain is light, happy, hopeful, fun, creative, open, carefree, and and even manifests MIRACLES (as I mentioned in a former post about a miraculous meeting with Wayne Dyer).
Left brain, on the other hand, is often serious, suspicious, paranoid, fearful, hopeless, withdrawn, or closed off to miracles. And when it’s off on it’s own, all HELL breaks loose and it isn’t pretty!
So repeat after me: Right Brain = Heaven. Left Brain = Hell.
