[1: 1,426 of 10,000] Good News: Inner Peace is at the Right Side of our Brain

In Article on April 1, 2015 at 12:38 PM

I am grateful that Oprah Winfrey interviewed Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor. If you haven’t got a clue about inner peace, this video is a good platform to start.

She was a brain scientist from Harvard who had a stroke and was only left with a perfectly working right hemisphere of her brain. A damaged left hemisphere is the same as not being able to talk and not knowing who she was including her own name.

Here are the beautiful things I learned from the talk.

  • Throughout the interview, she is joyful! Her smile were wide and genuine. Leaving her with only the right hemisphere of her brain to be working, it then magnificently allowed her to experience (a) deep inner peace, (b) innocence, (c) beauty, (d) purification, (e) nirvana, and (f) and in total awe with the miracle; despite drooling and acting like an infant from the outside.
  • The challenging state she was in was a realisation that people don’t have disabilities, instead they are different and Jill wondered what did they gained. It is true that her motor and language skills were impaired but she could sense the energy of a person, if they mean well or not. She couldn’t recognise her own mother but her love, patience (a lot of it), and nurturing made her try to relearn everything otherwise she would have just given up and stayed in her la la land (happy place).
  • She said that all humans have the same atoms and molecules by 99.99%, it is only the 0.01% that makes us unique. That is fascinating to know because with that 0.01% difference, we kind of forget to consider other people as our brothers and sisters; there is really no reason to battle it out to cause sufferings! We could love one another and appreciate our 0.01% uniqueness.
  • The circumstance made her lost her ego. Ego as she described are neurones with a size of a peanut at the left hemisphere that continuously chatter past pains or future fears. Letting ego control our mind, detriments us to live in the present, be calm, be at peace, and be truly loving. So we have to pay attention and stop our focus from emotional baggages, find greatness to focus on.
  • Ego, the story telling chattering, is the price we pay for language. To be able to speak, well I then is grateful that with my ego, I am able to type this post. 🙂 It gives me joy to type this post.
  • Anger only lasts for 90 seconds and after that it is flashed out from our system. The only reason it stays is because we let our ego to keep replaying the scenes that have happened in the past or may be we even make assumptions to fuel the fire.
  • I love how she never let people throw their baggage at her. When Oprah asked her if she care about what people think of her. She answered, “I don’t care what you think of me. I am as big as the universe.” and she is right, and so each one of us, we are as big as the universe, we are one with the universe.

I don’t know if you think the above ideas are foolish, since today is April Fool’s Day, but it is good that we do find inner peace so we may love everything and everyone around us. We expand ourselves and all the limitations, fears, and prides that caused us to suffer will diminish. We will live a blissful life that is full of wonders and that is a complete blessing.

[1: 1,411 of 10,000] Grievances or Miracles But Not Both

Mary Ann Williamson

I am amazed with the wisdom that Marianne Williamson shares to the world, I wish I would reach that state too.

She said in one of the interviews with Oprah Winfrey, it is either you have grievances or miracles but not both. She described that if we are open to love, when we truly forgive, when we don’t let hate and fear to remain in our lives, we are able to download all the blessings waiting for us.

I highly recommend if you have 2 hours and 40 minutes, listen to the audio book of “Return to Love” from YouTube. She explained what the elusive EGO (basically my fears that give all its efforts to sabotage my inner peace) is and she opens my heart to recognise GOD who is within me and is LOVE. Also, she shared various beautiful prayers that are authentically loving. Here’s one…

Dear God,

Please give my life some sense of purpose. Use me as an instrument of your peace. Use my talents and abilities to spread love. I surrender my job to you. Help me to remember that my real job is to love the world. Thank you.

Amen.

I love this line too – “With prayers we speak to God; with miracles HE responds.”

May your life be full of LOVE.
