My Brain is a Ninja

During my morning meditation, I had this crazy thought. I mean, I have multiple crazy thoughts during meditation…which is why it’s called a practice…so no judgement here. Anywho, today’s thought really was an AH HA moment. Maybe I’m late to the party, or really on to something, but here goes…

My Brain is a NINJA. I mean I know the brain is important…but have you really thought about everything that it does. For example, when you have a conversation, your brain processes the words that the other persons says, breaks down sentences to words, recognizes inflection and underlying meaning and makes sense of it all. It then goes on to creating a thought which is your response. Now, your response is made of past experiences that have been recalled to help frame the response - so she went on a deep dive into a library of your mind, checked out a few books, read them, and then crafted the right response. She ain’t done yet! Your brain then goes on to send a signal to your mouth and vocal cords that allow you to respond. The most fascinating thing to me is that this all happens at the same damn time…and you could also be doing a whole other activity. I have conversations while walking, while running, while hiking…while carrying on a conversation via text message…and baking a cake.…and my Brain is managing those activities as well. The Brain is a Ninja. Even now, thoughts are circling in my mind at the same time my fingers are identifying letters on a keyboard that helps me create sentences that now appear on my screen in front of me - like WHOA! We as humans should be amazed and grateful by what our Brain allows us to accomplish. I say all this to…Your brain is capable of amazing things..and it doesn’t even need to be plugged in or updated…so what is holding you back from creating the life you want - cuz your brain is already clearly on board!
