The Power of Brain

We talk about the power of the mind. Where is the mind? In our anatomy where is the epicenter of this power? The Western response to this question is the brain but in many cultures it is the heart.

In ancient Egypt they mummified not the brain, but the heart.

When Dr. Richard Davidson, who has worked with H.H. the Dalai Lama on measuring the effects of mediation on the body, was measuring the activity of Tibetan monks’ minds, the monks began to laugh as he hooked up the electrodes to their heads.  Dr. Davidson and his team assumed that it was the funny look of a man’s head with wires coming out of it that amused the monks, but later discovered that the monks were thinking: if you are measuring the activity of the mind, why are you hooking it up to the head and not the heart?

We live in an electro magnetic field. We at once affect and are influenced by this field.

The electric power of the heart is 100 times more than that of the electric power of the brain. And the magnetic power of the heart is 5,000 times more powerful than the magnetic field of the brain.

Our emotions are not only affecting our own bodies; they effect our environment, too. The feelings of compassion, forgiveness and love send strong positive energy (electro magnetic), whereas the feelings of hate, jealousy and anger send negative energy that ripples outward to our environment in which we stand at the epicenter of this source and as such are affected first.
