Chapter 13 - The Brain
"Man, with all of his boasted culture and education, understands little or nothing
of the intangible force (the greatest of all the intangibles) of thought. He knows
but little concerning the physical brain, and its vast network of intricate machinery
through which the power of thought is translated into its material equivalent.
They have uncovered enough knowledge to know that the central switchboard
of the human brain, the number of lines which connect the brain cells one with
another, equal the figure one, followed by fifteen million ciphers.
Hill also tells us "Through the emotions, the vibrations of thought may be increased."
When we can utilize the thought vibrations and direct them to the areas of our
lives we want to, we can create and attract anything we desire into our life.
This is a marvelous thing --- when it is working.
What happens when it is not working? What happens with the central switchboard
of the brain when the lines connected to the brain cells don't connect properly anymore?
We have all seen it happen to people when they begin to lose their memory. I see it
every day as I watch my husband lose more and more memory. For him the
switchboard it not connecting properly anymore.
Are we grateful everyday for the things we can do and recognize? Do we even think
about it when we do simple things or do we just do them without thinking and in our
mind we think it is normal.
Do we consider the words we use and the people we know?
My husband does not remember! Words, people, tasks are all becoming a blur in his
mind. His central switchboard is shutting down and disconnecting. He does what he
can to keep busy but he cannot increase the vibrations of thought through his emotions
to do all he wants to.
Do we really appreciate this marvelous thing that we have been given, the brain?
Do we take it for granted?
Gerald Posey said "We can always find something to be thankful for, and there
may be reasons why we ought to be thankful for even those dispensations which
appear dark and frowning."
Are we utilizing all that we have been given to create the life we want? Do we just
look at the things we do not have and fail to appreciate the things we really have?
Adam Grant wrote "It's ironic that when you go through a tragedy, you appreciate
more. You realize how fragile life is and that there are so many things to still be thankful for.
And, Walt Disney said "Times and conditions change so rapidly that we must keep our
aim constantly focused on the future."
