right and left brain plus heart

However the discovery that the left hemisphere of the brain performs functions involving logic and language, and the right hemisphere is more adept at music, art and spatial relationships occurred in the 1960s.   -Ariana Khent:  A Pathway to Union, 2010, p. 123              content.jpeg

II, iv, 7.  There is a center in the brain which is called the bell.  Like a resonator it gathers the symphony of the world, and it can transform the deepest silence into a thundering chord.  It is said:  “He who hath ears, let him hear.”         –Leaves of Morya’s Garden 1925

155, 167.  One must give attention to the middle brain, for in its development lies the attainment of yoga in life.  This development, as experienced in one’s life, proves to what extent the yoga of everyday life is superior to any artificial ascent achieved in isolation from reality….Of course the path for the person carrying Truth is hard.  The fiery path can never be made easy.  It is as if a dome descends upon the head of the bearer of Truth and presses upon the centers of the brain.  Only conscious battle can lead the spiritual toiler to the fulfillment of his task.  And a cloud of malice will pursue him because he strives to bring the planet out of its isolation.            -Morya:  Agni Yoga 1929

220, 601.  Any forcing of the solar serpent can result in injury to the brain.  Equally dangerous is any interruption of the functioning of the center of the chalice (heart).  Of course any poisoning by narcotics such as opium will stop the movement of the centers, but then decapitation would be even simpler!… Is it possible that dialectics and materialism are only limitations?   The development of consciousness brings us into closer contact with the entire mighty energy.  Is it possible to think as before, with only half one’s brain, not caring about the locked-up treasures?      –Agni Yoga 1929

627.  Not in the fissures of the brain but in some other repository are gathered the treasures of memory–indeed it is in the chalice….The peculiarities of the brain are a matter of heredity, but the properties of the chalice are the result of one’s own actions.       –Agni Yoga 1929

397.  Hierarchy stands upon exact laws.  We who have realized them take upon ourselves the responsibility of protecting this ladder of light.  One must repeat this untiringly in order that the structure of Hierarchy may be impressed as a design upon the brain.   -M:  Hierarchy 1931

74, 334.  The will of the brain has become the citadel of the West, whereas the East has maintained its stronghold in the heart….Ask a clever man what has most often warned him of danger, safeguarded him against errors and deviations.  An honest man will say the heart.  He will not name the brain or reason.  Only a stupid man will rely upon conventionally rationalized deductions.  The heart is permeated with straight-knowledge.       -M:  Heart 1932

339, 358, 399.  The brain and all the centers are the estates of the heart, because nothing can exist without the heart….One cannot build up the brain without refinement of the heart…. Immunity is in the heart, and even active resistance is not in the brain.  Only the energy of the heart makes a man invulnerable and carries him over obstacles.  Thus one should remember the heart as a weapon.  Precisely–the heart is the weapon of light!  But let them not suspect us of being opponents of the brain.  Let the good ploughman, the brain, labor over his sowing; let him nurture the seeds and bear thought, refined and sharpened by battles.         -M:  Heart 1932

546.  And when we speak of the significance of the heart it is explained (by others) as superstition, yet neither the brain nor the solar plexus nor the kundalini will give the signal about the plundering of the strength.

6, 190, 194.  One can imagine how easily the undeveloped brain deteriorates when the heart is silent; the morals of the peoples droop like a withered appletree.  Thus the danger of fiery epidemics is now great….culture will be proclaimed as the one defense against disintegration.  Nowadays one should strive only in this direction.  Our command is to miss no opportunity of reminding people about culture.  Though we be regarded as fanatics on the subject, people will nevertheless harken and become accustomed to it….What good is education if the brain remains crafty and the tongue false?  People can be divided according to refinement of heart but not according to falseness of consciousness.         -M:  Fiery World 1933

Hokhmah (wisdom) correlates with the right brain and is manifest as genius, inspiration, revelation and originality.  Binah (understanding) represents the left brain, our ability to reason and discriminate.  As a stepdown from the internal thought processes of hokhmah and binah, da’at (knowledge) is our ability to express our thoughts.  It is also spiritual knowledge and the omniscience and universal consciousness of God.       -Messenger ECP et alia:  Kabbalah, 1997, pp. 72, 74.

The devotion of thought to honest achievement makes achievement possible.    -Mary Baker Eddy:  Science and Health, p. 199

…………………………………………………….

The heart is indeed the altar of being.  If the body of man is to express the health of Almighty God this wonderful center within the body temple must be bathed daily in a pool of unselfed love.  The love of which I speak is too pure to be dissipated in feelings of self-righteousness which do subtly steal God’s vital energy.  Such love is held inviolate through a grateful sense of expanding light energy whereby the merging of the individual self with God transforms the human monad into a radiating orb of God’s all-encompassing grace and perfection….

The melody of pure love is so stirring, so soul-thrilling, so informative and infilling that it is difficult to conceive that any who have lived in love very long should ever wish to leave its citadel.        -Nada:  Pearls of Wisdom 8:30
