Are you also someone who studies endlessly in spiritual books, and thinks that your spiritual development goes too slow? Chances are great that you suffer from ‘right brain blockage’.
How do you know whether you have that, and how to get rid of that?
The general assumption is that the two halves of the brain are specialized. Your left brain is specialized in numbers, logical analysis, objective observations and critical thinking.
Your right brain is specialized in intuition, creativity, emotional expressions, art and imagination.
In our Western society the left brain is trained intensively from the moment we go to school. The training for the right brain systematically disappears from the educational system, and becomes sidetracked ever more in our society. The consequence is that you are trained to dismiss everything that is not logical. The consequence is also that the creative expansion of most humans is discouraged after leaving kindergarten.
The experience of spirituality belongs to the creative part of your brain. When you try to experience spirituality by studying books, you use your logical brain. This does not fit well together.
The logical brain tunes up best with a materialistic worldview. The materialistic vision of life oppresses the spiritualistic worldview. This is at the expense of nature, of your personal wellbeing, your health and your spiritual experiences.
Two Eyes of Horus
The materialistic world vision is relatively young. It is only 300 years ago that the ‘age of reason’ began. Before that, humans experienced reality as totally ensouled. Only in an ensouled world you can truly experience spirituality.
The ancient Egyptians talked about the Two Eyes of the God Horus. One eye was the Sun, and the other the Moon. Also in the Jewish tradition the two aspects of Divinity were called the Countenance (Resh) and the Back of the Head (Qoph). We would say: the left brain and the right brain. In the ancient worldview these are the worlds of day consciousness and the magical ‘Otherworld’.
When you start to develop your creative part, the right brain worldview will slowly start to mature, and you will develop an experience of a parallel reality to the ‘ordinary’ world’: the Other World which is ensouled, where other natural laws are valid, and where true miracles happen.
Contemplate on this concept: The nature of reality is not material but spiritual. Matter is crystallized consciousness. The spiritual worldview says; The Divine is comatose in stones, asleep in plants, dreams in animals and is awake in humanity. Look around you and try to see this. The more you open yourself for this experience, the more your consciousness will expand to an ensouled reality.
