How to differentiate between thinking that comes from the mind and thought that comes from the brain.
We live in a world dominated by thought, our brains taking in information at such great rates. Not many people stop to think of where thought comes from. They really just take it for granted that it is there and part of the makeup of what makes a human’s brain. We characterize that all levels of thought and thinking come from this region of the body, an organ that defines how we see the world around us. This organ, the brain links to our bodies through our senses and the interactions we come across on a daily basis. If thought and thinking were to be defined as being only part of the brain, then how is the brain able to translate thought into reality? Do not think that life comes at all times with definable answers that can fit within a small box. The complexity of thought goes to a much deeper level to the origins of our formation in our bodies as a whole. It does not only link to the brain, but to the mind, which is a component linking all of creation together at the core. The mind has no material foundations like the brain but it can deliver through the use of electricity, possibility that comes from some other place, perhaps at times outside of our known reference plane. This might sound very science fiction, but it can be easily defined within simple logic and explanation. Think about what a ‘thought’ really is. It is a moment inside ourselves (in our brains) where we take in information either as words, feelings, emotions, images, smells, all that is feedback from the senses of the body, able to be manipulated upon. Thought is a process that comes from already predetermined and learnt interaction within the world around us. ‘Thinking’ is however organized in a different way. If thought relates to memory or manipulation founded on our senses and interaction with the world around us, then thinking comes from some other realm or place that does not coincide always with rational or cohesive patterns, concepts or beliefs. These fluid thinking patterns of the mind are often seen as inspiration, innovation and creativity formed from instantaneous ideas. They come as either words or images, or a combination of both never linking to smell, taste, or sound. These images are what I call impulses. They are like flashes of light that are born into the brain, coming from foundation of our own formation, the connection between mind and matter. They cannot be manipulated by our own desires, and come to us more on a spontaneous level.
To see the difference between thought of the brain and thinking from the mind, it is best to see it in relation to our daily activities. Thoughts such as: I want to go to the shop. That is a pretty garden. I do not like that person. I would like to buy that. I will call my friend tomorrow. Thoughts that are based on systematic conceptualization are built within the brain. They are formed on already known concepts learnt through the environment that we live within. All of these thoughts that can be manipulated throughout the day within our brains can also be seen as stories or events. They are thoughts that form the basis of our life, organized through preconceived notions and ideas developed through experience. When we have thinking that stretches outside of the box, things start to get more interesting. The moments where we have inspiration, is where the mind takes over. If we are trying to think of a solution to a problem in life, there is a moment where we say we have had an ‘idea’, or a ‘flash of inspiration’. This is really what it is, a flash coming from the well of the mind which is linked to all possibility within all of creation. Thinking sits outside of the box of structured and organized life and comes often when we ask questions like: What will I make today? What will I write? How will I get there? What can I do? The answers to questions often come to a person in a flash of moment, through a sort of hazy visual or word oriented impulse. This is the electric charge sent out from the mind to stimulate thought patterns. The brain picks up on the charge sent from the mind after it has occurred as a sort of image for the fact that we cannot visualize outside of our known environment, without some sort of reference. It forms pockets of chemicals that hold electric charge within the brain allowing us to store memory of what we experience, to be utilized as a building block to organize future inspiration and patterns of thinking. These thoughts that are stored are reference points for where the mind can develop from, building upon our experience. This means that the mind is the motivator of thinking and what gives us the ability to see the world as a continuous flow and formation. It is one of the core components of creation, in combination with light (matter) it is the creator of thoughts, the brain and the world to which we inspire towards. There is a difference between the mind and the brain. Thinking from the mind is the inspiration behind our motivation for life, and thoughts from the brain are the result from our thinking. The mind creates memory (thoughts) in our brains to be used as reference points for future thinking. By Stacey T Pollock 28th November 2008
