It's All in Your Head
Taoist author and Master Wu Wei gives a wonderful explanation on how all that we see is in our head, according to master Wei “everything we see is inside of our heads. Inside of each eye are over one hundred million rods and cones. These rods and cones are stimulated by the rays of light that enter your eye which, in turn, create impulses that travel along the optic nerve system to the brain.”
The brain receives those impulses and forms a picture. That picture is inside your head-formed by your brain, within your brain. Master Wei writes “We never actually see an object, the only thing we see are light rays being radiated by, or reflected from objects. The view you have of the world is simply a picture that appears to be outside, but actually is inside your head”.
From a very early age we have been socially programed to see things in a certain way. Consider this if what we see is in our heads, and if we have been taught to see things in a certain way, there may be more to life then what we see and believe to be true; about ourselves and others. Two individuals will see a glass of water but social programing will make one see it as half full and the other see it as half empty.
When discussing this concept at the Ki Center or in workshops I often use the Magic Eye 3D computer-generated illusions as an example of how the brain only sees what it has been programed to see. When you look at a Magic Eye 3d picture for the first time you will only see an arrangement of color patterns. If you are never told that there is more then what you see you will never experience the magic.
If you have someone you trust tell you to keep looking at the picture until your brain allows you to see a 3D image appear. In time you will see that hidden 3D image appear. When that happens for the first time, you realize there is more than meets the eye. I find this a wonderful metaphor to use in addressing the concept of enlightenment.
A deprogrammed mind will see more possibilities then a programed mind.
The first step in deprogramming is to accept the fact that most of your core thoughts about yourself and others are programed illusions of your reality. You then have to work on changing your brain frequency from Beta to Alpha. At the ki center a Chunsoo treatment will allow your brain frequency to change from Beta to Alpha.
I invite you to visit our Harlem Week Ki Center exhibit and experience a Chunsoo treatment. on Saturday August 20th and Sunday HARLEM DAY Aug 21st we will be located across from the 32nd Precinct on 135th street between Fredrick Douglas Blvd and Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd. You can always call 646 329-6727 to schedule an appointment for a Chunsoo treatment. A relaxed brain will allow you to see what a stressed brain will not allow you to see; it’s all in your head.
