Have You Ever Had a Heart to Heart with Your Brain?
March 23, 2018
So I'm having this conversation with a friend of mine, and she mentions how she feels she needs to “try harder” because she was facing challenges. Intuitively on some level I understood that her challenges weren't anything she needed to “try harder” at overcoming, but I didn't even expect my response to come out the way it did.
I often uses analogies and parallels or parables, like many of us do to explain things and I find myself using the analogy of Humans and Computers alot. Like, ALOT. You’d think I was some “woke” IT guy or something. But I mean the comparisons are pretty obvious, to me at least. Plus I'm pretty much constantly in a state of self referral, where I'm always reflecting or referring things back on to the Self or individual self, seeing how they mirror one another. But I’ll save that for another time.
This day I didn't do my Falun Gong and Meditation until late at night, which I suppose was due to me starting my day off on my phone and not to myself. But it happens... can't beat myself up about it, which I would've because “I know better”, but I digress. I only say all that for transparency and to give more context. So anyway 🙄, I do my practice around 11pm and I come out of my rest at like 2am 😅. Now I was going to take a shower and go to bed, but while I was in the shower something strange happened. I started having a conversation with my Brain.
I don't know what made me think about the conversation I had with my friend earlier, but it inspired this imaginary conversation I would now be writing about. Even though it started in the shower, I felt it would be dope to write it down. Turns out it became even more profound. I never actually even thought about literally talking to my Brain. I mean yeah, I talk to myself but never did I think to talk to my fuckin Brain - that's crazy! Surprisingly enough it was an awesome healing experience for me. Here's how it went:
"So Brain, ya know I love you and I appreciate you, right? And I know your doing your best to keep coherence, or familiarity in my life. Your doing your best to protect me from things unforeseen, things that aren't apart of your original programming, just trying to protect me. You do an amazing job at that, honestly. But the same thing you protecting me from, is hurting me, because you insist on running a program that no longer serves me. So your desire to protect me and keep things familiar, is hurting me, stagnating me, suffocating me. Why do you think I'm constantly trying to install new programming? I desire expansion, growth, and the opportunity to extend my limits. So how best can WE WORK TOGETHER so that WE can successfully install this Operating System that allows for you to do your innate function and for me to express my desires?
I apologize, I never recognized that I was hurting you or impeding you from living a more fulfilled life. I thought you were fulfilled, I thought you enjoyed the predictability I provided you. I guess I didn't predict this. You have been trying to introduce new patterns and programs, some have stuck while majority of them were discarded. But I never deduced that you were trying to override the original Programming because you were unhappy with the projected reality and operating system you’ve been functioning with since the beginning.
See that's the thing, Brain, for the most part, that Operating System that was installed when I was manufactured and in development wasn't complete and it wasn't designed by me, or us. It was more or less designed for us. Plus you and I never really sought to operate like the others, that should've been a clue. It's ok though. I guess I could've had this conversation with you before, instead of simply trying to force install new programming. I wasn't aware of your inner workings as much as I am now. Plus, I guess I felt that you were a part from me..and I never thought about communicating with you. It's crazy to think about it now actually because you communicate with me all the time. So wait, am I the Mind communicating with the Brain? That's Meta AF. Either way this feels to be very healing honestly. I feel like I should apologize to you, for taking you for granted, for being oblivious to your intelligence and even your sentience. You're an amazing instrument, essential to my experience and without you..well this wouldn't even be happening.
(I ask my brain is there anything else it wanted to say and what I got back was)
Nah. I've been acknowledged, without even knowing thats all I wanted, it all I could ever ask for. To be acknowledged, accepted and appreciated. It would be my honor and pleasure to install a greater program that is in more alignment with your wishes and desires, as it is my desire to serve you. Always has been, always will be."
Bro, I cried. I fuckin cried talking to my Brain. And I loved it. I had a real life heart to heart with my Brain. Trust me, I thought that shit was crazy too but it was beautiful! We're all broken pieces seeking healing and wholeness. What better way to do that than healing the lines of communication, especially with your own Self; Mind, Body and Spirit? I don't know if it's from me being a raw/live Foodist now, listening to “GREATER .”, Rebounding, or a combination of it all that facilitated this Psycho Spiritual Healing, but whatever it is I'm immensely grateful for it.
I highly recommend you have your own heart to heart with your Brain, it might be the beginning of a greater relationship between you and your Self. After all, all great relationships are built through communication.
