CHAPTER 13

THE BRAIN: A BROAD CASTING AND RECEIVING STATION FOR THOUGHT

The Twelfth Step toward Riches

The Brain is the Central Processing Unit in humans and other vertebrates. In a Human Person the Brain is a complex structure of neutrons, protons and electrons, arranged in definite patterns and interconnected such that it serves two main functions. The first is the control of all bodily functions, internally and externally.

Secondly it is the communication centre being both the transmitting and receiving station for communication internally between the finite mind and the subconscious mind, together with external communication involving other brains and infinite intelligence.

At the time of writing “Think and Grow Rich” little was known about the communicating functions of the Brain other than those described in previous chapters on Autosuggestion, Imagination and the Master Mind. Much of the work establishing that the Brain was both a transmitting and receiving station was carried out in collaboration between Emerson, Edison and Hill, who likened its operation to a normal radio station.

The main focus of this chapter is the function causing communication between the Conscious Mind, the Subconscious Mind, Imagination and Infinite Intelligence, and the need for the Brain to be both a receiving and transmitting station all in one. It is interesting to note that such transmissions can only occur when the Brain is in a state of high vibration caused by the eight positive emotions of which the greatest influence comes from the emotion of sex. Again note the similarity between the functioning of radio waves which are amplified to a very high frequency allowing transmission through the atmosphere and even space.

A state of high vibration gives the Brain the capacity to communicate not only with other brains but also with infinite intelligence from which all ideas and hunches emanate. In previous chapters we have already examined the Imagination, Infinite Intelligence and both the Conscious and Subconscious Minds. This chapter draws all together and gives a more enlightened insight into the working of a Master Mind.

Hill makes mention of his “Invisible Counselors”, discussed more fully in the next chapter. He did however carry out simple experiments with two of his colleges allow the blending of the three minds to provide the solution to clients personal problems.

I believe this chapter is the basis of changing our mode of thinking from our previously imbedded method “what to think” to one of “how to think”.

Thank you to Michael and Linda who have patiently guided me of the past many months in changing my way of thinking. To this wonderful and enlightened Master Mind Group for assisting in teaching me through their inspirational lessons derived from TGR.
