You order your toes and your legs to maneuver and so they stream. if you say cease, they cease. you're the grasp. If i would like to maneuver my hand, I stream it. If I don’t wish it to maneuver, I don’t stream it. The hand can't say to me, “Now i need to be moved. ” The hand can't say to me, “Now i'll stream. whatever you do, i'm really not going to hear you. ” And if my hand starts off relocating inspite of me, then it is going to be a chaos within the physique. an analogous has occurred within the brain. You don’t are looking to imagine and the brain is going on pondering. you must sleep – you're mendacity down in your mattress, altering facets; you must doze off and the brain keeps. The brain says, “No, i'll take into consideration something”; you pass on asserting, “Stop! ” and it by no means listens to you. and also you can't do whatever. brain can also be an software yet you will have given it an excessive amount of strength. It has develop into dictatorial, and it'll fight difficult when you attempt to positioned it in its correct position. Buddha additionally makes use of the brain, yet his brain is rather like your legs. humans come to me they usually ask, “What occurs to the brain of an enlightened one? Does it easily disappear? He can't use it? ” It disappears as a grasp, it is still as a slave. It is still as a passive tool. If a Buddha desires to use it, he can use it. whilst Buddha speaks to you he'll need to use it, simply because there is not any risk of speech with no the brain. The brain should be used. if you happen to visit Buddha and he acknowledges you – that you've got additionally been sooner than – he has to take advantage of the brain: with out brain there might be no attractiveness, with no brain there is not any reminiscence. yet he makes use of the brain, take into accout – this is often the excellence – and also you are getting used through the brain. each time he desires to use it, he makes use of it. each time he doesn’t are looking to use it, he doesn’t use it. it's a passive tool that has no carry upon him. So Buddha is still like a replicate. in case you come prior to the replicate, the reflect displays you. if you happen to circulate the mirrored image is long gone, the replicate is vacant. you're not like a replicate. you notice anyone: the guy has long gone however the considering keeps, the mirrored image maintains. You move on wondering him, or even so that it will cease, the brain won’t pay attention. Mastery of the brain is Yoga. And while Patanjali says, “Cessation of the mind,” he ability cessation as a grasp. brain ceases as a grasp. Then it isn't lively, then it's a passive tool. You order, it really works; you don’t order, it continues to be nonetheless. it is only ready, it can't assert on its own. The statement is misplaced, the violence is misplaced. it is going to no longer try and keep watch over you: now simply the opposite is the case. easy methods to turn into masters? and the way to place brain in its correct position the place you should use it, the place for those who don’t are looking to use it you could save it and it continues to be silent? So the entire mechanism of the brain should be understood. Now we must always input the sutra. the 1st sutra: The changes of the brain are 5. they are often both a resource of distress or of non-misery. first thing to be understood: brain isn't really whatever diverse from the physique, keep in mind. brain is a part of the physique. it really is physique, yet deeply refined; a kingdom of physique, yet very gentle, very subtle.
