THOUGHT AND ACTION
What this power is I cannot say:
all I know is that it exists and it becomes
available only when a man is in that state of mind
in which he knows exactly what he wants and is
fully determined not to quit until he finds it.
-Alexander Graham Bell
Create your new life every morning before opening your eyes using new thought. Inventor, sailor, tinker or tailor. Imagine yourself a modern mystic with all the power of the universe available for you to access. You create your reality every morning with your thought life. Intentional thought combined with the right skill set will create the modern man.
Both frontal lobes are most active when the task in novel or new. The more familiar the activity, the less the frontal lobe is required. When a new task was introduced that was similar to the first but was not exactly the same, the frontal lobe activity increased but not to the same level as the initial level. This means that the more a task is “relatively” familiar by association, the less the activity that is required of the frontal lobe. In essence, familiar tasks or routine information are easier for the frontal lobe to process because they require less concentration and focus. Because there is an element of familiarity, the brain can associate with the preexisting task based on how we have already wired the experience neurologically.
When we are learning unknown information in an attempt to make it known, the right frontal prefrontal cortex is mainly activated. As the task begins to become routinely familiar by mental rehearsal and practice, activation moves to the left prefrontal cortex. Brain activity ultimately moves toward the posterior (back) of the brain as we begin to wire the task and mold the experience in the brain’s very fabric.
In many ways, the frontal lobe is a lot like what we think of as our personality self and thought. It loves to learn new things and keeps us focused on what’s novel and exciting. When a skill is new and essentially “fun,” the frontal lobe is all over that activity. After a few repetitions, when all the surprise and newness is gone, the frontal lobe passes the work off to another area of the brain. New thought creates new excitement for the brain.
The definition of the mind is the brain in action. Transforming to a new level of mind and thought function creates a new physical brain.
We can learn only when we selectively place our conscious awareness on the inputs and information we choose, based on our free will. As human beings, we have the privilege to choose where to put our attention, and for how long. Reality exists wherever our mind is. We can unfold a painful memory from a dark closet deep within our mind (memory), and within moments, it will come to life. We can even relive the experience emotionally. When we do, whether we like it or not, our brain creates an onslaught of chemical signals to the body, and it produces almost the same chemical effects as the original experience. That is how mobile our attention is—we can cast it into the future or we can anchor it to the past. Our free willed attention can be our greatest gift or our biggest curse.
Consequently, if we can use the frontal lobe to help us to achieve focused concentration, our thought life can be made more real than the external world. How is that possible? We are talking about controlling the elements of our reality on which we choose to focus.
Intentional Thought Life
The one word that describes the frontal lobe is intent. I am now exercising my intentional exercise of compassion and humility. It is my intention in this present moment to have this present mind of love, nobility, and greatness, coupled with humility, love and compassion. It is my intention to purify my thought life.
The purpose of a life coach is to create mental mind exercises in the present moment just like an athletic coach works his client out in the sports club.
Now I am working out my frontal lobe’s ability to inhibit random behavior through its process called impulse control. My frontal lobe is getting much better at holding the reigns of my emotional self. My distinct and unique emotional personality is becoming more loving and attractive to others.
The frontal lobe is what enables human beings to dream about what-ifs, new possibilities, and unlimited potentials. The frontal lobe is actively involved in creation.
Science recognizes the prefrontal cortex as crucial to our species’ ability to activate the highest order of free willed intentional behavior. By possessing such a well developed prefrontal cortex, we own the autonomy of complex choice and imagination. As our ultimate reward from the fixed routines and predictable reactions that are common to all species lower on the evolutionary scale, the frontal lobe endows human beings with the virtue of conscious choice and free will. Without it, much of what we believe makes us human would be absent.
Who we are as individuals, what we want, who we want to be in the future, and what kind of world we want to live in, are all determined by how we use our frontal lobe. The frontal lobe has the capacity to formulate goals, to make plans for their execution, to carry them out in an effective way, to change course and improvise in the face of obstacles and failure, and to do so successfully, in the absence of external direction or structure.
I align with an internal representation of the concept of my intention. The universe wants me to assist in evolving human consciousness and sexuality. I make up my mind, without considerations or concerns as to how my choice to do or be something might happen and the frontal lobe is now fully activated. When we make our thoughts all that is real and we pay attention to them as if they were, we unite the frontal lobe’s primary functions into a force as powerful as anything in the universe.
The greatest achievers of history were Masters of the Frontal Lobe. It didn’t matter if their body was in danger how difficult the obstacles were in their immediate life, or how long it would take to overcome almost unanimously opposed circumstances. Only the ideal mattered. Throughout history, our heroes have demonstrated total focus of thought and intention coupled with consistent behavior and action. In effect, they molded reality to match the internal image they constructed. That is true power, and the frontal love is the structure that gives us that ability. This is what we secretly admire about greatness. It speaks to our own potential.
Faith can be defined as believing that the only real thing is thought—independent of the circumstances. When we pray to a higher power for change in our life, we believing in and making thought more powerful than our present reality. The frontal lobe makes this happen. Faith is the exercise that the only real thing is thought followed by congruently consistent words and actions.
FOCUS X BEHAVIOR = ACCOMPLISHMENT!
THOUGHT, WILL & ACTION
A hero simply learns to live in his frontal lobe more frequently than everyone else does. When we are clear about what we want, and hold that in thought, the frontal lobe forbids anything from distracting us from our purpose and intent. How often am I aligned to this single minded function of the frontal lobe? Thought, will and action must be focused.
The mind coach focuses intention to will high performance thoughts that achieve the successive steps leading to fruition of long-term goals. Mental losers absent mindedly distract themselves with thoughts that create emotions yielding short-term gratification.
In this way the frontal love restrains/retrains the mind from paying attention to external stimuli that don’t pertain to our higher goals. In addition, the frontal lobe gives us the internal strength not to respond to stimuli that create feelings of immediate gratification. Instead, our frontal lobe gives us the ability to hold on to long-term dreams, ideals, purposes, and goals instead of what might feel better in that moment. It restrains us from knee-jerk reactions.
The frontal love gives us the ability to choose what stimuli we want to pay attention to by monitoring diverse signals from the external world and prevents the mind from wandering off of this chosen path of mental activity.
When the frontal lobe lowers the volume on emotions and sensations, and quiets down the motor cortex, we actually move into a trance, and the body follows.
When we are no longer turning on the circuits of the visual cortex, we will stop seeing the external world, and our thoughts will take front and center stage in our mind. I then go deeper and deeper into focus on my mental rehearsal of our internal representation as a motivational speaker by turning off my auditory cortex and ultimately my limbic (emotional) brain. As a result focusing on being a motivational speaker is now more real than the external world. I am a mental motivational speaker, no longer conscious of my body, the environment, or even time or space.
In neurotheology I perceive myself as endless and intimately interwoven with everyone and everything because spiritual oneness is my only reality. A religious experience and a particular spiritual neurological response are no different from the human sexual response. The magnitude of the reality is in the perception of the believer.
My experience as a sexually enlightened experience of pure conscious energy is manifested by my androgynous body, my motivational speaking, and my mature, higher level of mind and emotional awareness. I literally become the thought I am thinking about.
Know me as guru by the intensity of my Soul Gaze as I lose my ego and become pure conscious energy. Genius is at hand for anyone who chooses that path. Mediocrity and conformity have never been my choice. In this present moment, this present mind, I choose to extend the length and frequency of my stay in the zone of transcendence.
My identity is no longer the self with a history; instead, my new identity becomes the thought and intention I am holding. My mind becomes one with (unified) with my focus on spiritual sexual hybrid consciousness. My mind is now in the best position to intentionally learn, create and perform skills as a motivator of human potential.
I no longer make choices based on memory because my frontal lobe is actively performing free willed decision making of innovative choices.
I don’t choose what I think will make you like me. It is too late for group conformity leading to my personal unhappiness. I let my frontal lobe (God) choose what my innate (God) intelligence knows is best for me.
- The frontal lobe has been crucial to our survival and evolution as a species. When activated, it frees us from repetitive or routine results, granting us a heightened awareness so that we may experience a different outcome.
- The frontal lobe has been crucial to my survival and evolution as an individual. When activated, it frees me from repetitive or routine results, granting me a heightened awareness so that I may experience a different outcome.
- The frontal lobe evolved The Rainbow Method for individuals seeking transcendence. It frees them from repetitive and routine live, granting heightened awareness so that they may experience different outcomes.
The choice to use a form of the verb “to be” says a lot about what we believe regarding our ability to change. To say, “I am” is a shorthand way of saying, “My state of being is, was, and will always be.” I chose “to be” a sexually transcendent hybrid expression of pure conscious energy.
There is only one admirable form of the imagination:
the imagination that is so intense that it creates a new reality,
that it makes things happen.
The keys to breaking emotional addictions and the habitual routines of our daily lives are based on memories of the past contained in thought. We all possess the ability to alter ourselves, change our behaviors, undo the effects of certain traits, and break the links that chain us to our inherited propensities. By breaking the thought pattern we can break the negative thought habit.
We all possess the skill to tune out our environment and tune into our authentic selves. Aroma therapy candles, soft instrumental music, mood lighting can assist the senses to journey to the calm center of our heart mind. You will intuit the benefits of focused concentration and devise your own way of getting to that calmed state. Begin at the beginning—with the skill of observation.
1. Mastering the Skills of Observation
Although it has become a cliché, it remains true that the first step in healing ourselves is recognizing that we have a problem. Recognition depends on our ability to observe ourselves—that is to become self-aware.
Most people lack my highly developed self-awareness, and also lack the patience necessary to slow ourselves down and really examine or analyze our life and personality. These skills require a lifetime of development and practice.
I’m sure we’ve all been in countless situations when we’ve wondered about someone else’s ability to see themselves clearly. When I observe Judy’s utter lack of ability to see herself, her life, and her situation clearly, I use this as lesson to check my own current level of self-observation. Am I deceiving myself, acting like a jerk, blocked or self-limiting is any way? Most people simply cannot, or will not honestly look at themselves honestly. Ego, personality and other defense mechanisms prevent most people from becoming self-aware. They haven’t taken the time to self-reflect, or they have failed to develop an awareness of how they behave in certain situations. They haven’t even considered the more important questions: Why is it that I keep producing the same self-destructive feelings? Why is it that I keep expecting that my behavior and comments will elicit one response, yet in return, I get the complete opposite of what I expect? If we don’t ask ourselves these crucial questions, about our very nature, we can’t see who we truly are.
If we activate our frontal lobe, however, we will be able to see ourselves with astounding clarity.
Being predisposed to the contemplative life probably sets me apart from most people these days. I fill the hours that I used to spend staring vacantly at the television and numbing myself with alcohol and drugs, by immersing myself in the natural world and in interesting books and instructional media. I have sharpened my skills of observation while hiking, by observing wildlife and cataloging many of the wild flowers and plants that grow in my area. And I have applied those same skills of observation to myself.
In my life’s work I have had to be aware of exactly how my own mind was working.
2. DESIRE: Making the Commitment to Change
To change takes a great deal of effort, will, and commitment. Most of us have learned to survive—in fact, that’s what we do most of the time in our life. We get by.
Keep in mind the importance of finding motivation. Once we do, we’ll be amazed at how our powers of observation improve—we’ll no longer be satisfied with getting along in any part of life. We’ll find that discomfort no longer acts as a deterrent—it will motivate us to move out of that mode and into a new and improved comfort zone.
3. Mental Rehearsal:
Magical Thinking and Getting Wired
I rehearse performing The Rainbow Method with a more focused and purposeful intent. I don’t simply run through a routine set of exercises; I perform as if the occasion were a concert. That’s the key difference in the mind. A rehearsal is supposed to replicate the experience of the actual doing of the thing. I this case, mentally rehearsing and the actual doing are one and the same. Each time we initiate some action, engage in a behavior, perform a skill, express an emotion, or make a change in our attitude, we should get better. That’s why we rehearse—so that we can get better and so that the next time we perform that experience, it becomes easier for us to do it.
Mental rehearsal is remembering what we want to demonstrate, and then cognitively experiencing what it is like to physically do the action step by step. It is mentally seeing our “self” physically demonstrating or practicing an action or skill. In terms of personal change, mental rehearsal is conceiving ourselves in a situation and behaving differently (or simply being a different person) from how we acted (or who we were) previously. Instead of being in survival and being angry, depressed, a victim, a victimizer, in ill health, or any of those limited things that we allow our emotional additions to impose on us, we can rehearse, from a purely cognitive standpoint, being healthy, calm, compassionate, or an of the other more positive things we’ve wanted to be.
The initial quieting of the brain and focusing on a skill at hand are the first steps to ending our pattern of thinking via familiar feelings and a reliance on emotional states. Quiet all emotional and non-frontal lobe areas of the mind, relax and find calm to enter a trance-like state. During those moments when we are truly quite, we can learn and change how the brain regularly works, and therefore change our mind.
When we are not using the frontal lobe at its functional capacity survival-oriented questions inundate us. What do I look like, am I accepted by this person and will we have sex? Go beyond survival, always look your best, don’t care about if you are accepted and just fucking know that you are going to have sex.
The frontal lobe can act like a mental bouncer to clear the mental lounge of all the smoke, noise and bad thoughts for the higher-order processing powers to be now used by The Rainbow Method. These higher order questions have to do with our future or potential self:
What am I wearing when I give a motivational speech?
What am I saying?
How am I feeling?
- How can I become better?
- How can I modify my behavior?
- How can I reinvent myself?
What would my life be like if I were loving and compassionate?
What do I have to change about myself to achieve this?
How can I become different from how I am now?
What is my highest ideal of myself I can imagine?
WHAT DO I REALLY WANT?
The frontal lobe is able to silence the inner critic and nurture the inner divine power. It can tune out what hasn’t worked in the past and give us the blank slate we need to produce a new level of mind. We will get so good at it that we will be able to produce that new level of mind whenever we want to. The Law of Repetition & Hebbian learning tell us that nerve cells that fire together wire together and therefore we are producing mind.
In order to mentally rehearse at winning the game of life we have to be an astute observer of the other players tendencies and already be in a winning frame of mind. Practice joy. Mentally practice love, acceptance, joy and success.
4. TURNING OFF THE NEGATIVE
An added benefit of employing the frontal lobe to quiet the other centers in the brain and focus on mental rehearsing is that we interrupt the programs that are routinely running all the time. We shut down the negative self talk cold! When we meditate new mind the mind that is usually produced is now turned off.
In Hebbs law, neurons that no longer fire together, no longer wire together. This means that if we slow ourselves down, get our mind focused on specifics of who and how we want to be, and start to put a mental image of that new person in the sights of the frontal lobe (or mentally practice a new act of any nature), by our cognitive effort, we get a double bonus. Not only are we able to wire new circuits, but also prune the previously hardwired connections of negativity and other behavior that we no longer want or need.
The good news is that those newly unwired nerve cells don’t want to remain inactive. Instead, they seek out new connections and they use recycled neural growth factor to attach themselves to new neurons. It’s a shuffle. Neural growth factor is shuffled from the newly disconnected set of circuits to a newly connected set of circuits. We can take those old patterns and the sequences we routinely fired and reuse the neural growth factor in forming new and improved patterns and sequences, bonding the synaptic connections to cement the new connections we are forming.
We lose our old mind of impatience, anger and negativity and make a new mind of patience, love and good vibrations. This Hebbian transfer is the true biology of change. We unwire the warped mind and rewire a clean and beautiful new Rainbow Method Mind. After a few weeks of mental rehearsal the old circuits have sat idle. They don’t like being ignored and they are eager to go to work. They see activity going on in another part of the brain, and they decide to get out of this dead town and move to where things are happening—over on good vibrations street. So they disconnect from the other nerve cells in the neural network and join the newly formed neural network of patience. Not wanting to be viewed as party crashers, they come bearing a house warming gift of neural growth factor.
USE MY CONTEMPLATOR:
What if I decided that from now on, I was going to be a more evolved person?
What would my life look like?
What do I already know or what have I just learned that I can apply in the next moment so I can do it better next time?
The great thing about the frontal lobe is that it loves to be engaged in this kind of speculative contemplation.
The frontal lobe is designed to synthesize sources to create a program for “future life as a free-thinking genius.” For those about to reinvent themselves, we salute you!
5. Mapping Change
The moment all our awareness converges on an internal representation, and that picture becomes more real to us than the external representations surrounding us, we begin to rewire new connections in our brain. The prefrontal cortex creates new wiring outside the familiar territory of our personality, so the brain can store, and then experience, new data.
When we are first learning how to focus, it is more effective to find a quiet place, sit down by ourselves without distractions, and mentally rehearse what we want to learn. Results can only be achieved using focused attention and concentration.
6. Falling in Love With Evolving
Fall in love with some idea of ourselves or our world that we want to see come to fruition. Love is a powerful motivator. By falling in love with our ideal, we are chemically bonding with a new version of ourselves.
We are highly motivated when we first fall in love with someone. No scheduling conflict is so great, no prior commitments too important that they can’t be changed to accommodate this new love in our life. That’s how the process of mentally rehearsing new vision of ourselves should be. We must fall in love with this vision, never tiring of, or becoming bored by, this concept of ourselves. We should always feel that we want to be with our new concept and visit with it. We must bond with a pattern of thinking that repeatedly inspires, enlivens, and heals us. After all, making new synaptic connections is a creative, joyful process. All animals in the wild are at their most playful and joyful during early development, when they are forming new synaptic connections on a large scale.
And just like when we are first in love, when the object of our affection seems to us to be an idealized incarnation of all that is pure and true, that’s the vision we want to create for our new self. After all, what would be the point of not striving for perfection? How are we going to be motivated to spend the hours necessary to sit and reflect and contemplate on anything less than an ideal? As clichéd as it sounds, I do believe that anything worth doing is worth doing well.
The internal image we hold ought to be nothing short of the most highly evolved version of what we are or can ever remember being.
Einstein said that no problem can be solved with the same level of consciousness that created it. This is another way of saying that there is no solution in the problem. The collective consciousness has moved me to a joyful state of being where I have become a new person with new thoughts and new mannerisms.
As we envision a new self, we aren’t simply going to form new circuits. Instead, we will put together a three-dimensional, holographic image or ideal of ourselves through the act of mental rehearsal. The frontal lobe loves to solve complex puzzles. It thrives. in meeting challenges that require it to combine and synthesize newly learned information with bits and pieces of prior knowledge and past experiences fro a wide variety of sources, and then to work those into new patterns and combinations. The frontal lobe is so skillful that the only limitation is in its ability to construct these models is our own skill at envisioning the ideal of ourselves.
If we love the concept of our new self from the start, love is the only emotion we can associate it with, because we have yet to experience that new self. Those experiences are yet to come, and they are an important part of evolving our brain to the highest degree possible. The side effect of this creative process is joy.
Mental rehearsal can be like taking a trip, if we alter our environment in some way so that we have no previous associations with it or with the mental state we bring into the new environment.
How to Create:
The only thing it takes to create any new attribute we desire is:
Then you must rehearse being your new self as if you are already compassionate, or whatever the new attribute you desire is, using the Laws of Association and Repetition, firing new sequences and patterns based on knowledge and experience, learning to quiet the internal chattering that results from an obsessive focus on the external environment and attending to the resultant emotional state we have become newly addicted to.
To truly reinvent, revise and reconceptualize ourselves, we have to use the process of mental rehearsal to fire those new circuits on a daily basis and at every opportunity. If we rehearse every day, especially first thing in the morning, we walk out of the house with those circuits already warmed up. Since we’ve already been that new person in our mind—we are already in that mindset—it’s a lot easier to be that person when we encounter a situation that challenges that new concept.
By firm intention and by quieting the rest of the brain, we can become more astute at observing ourselves. We can better identify our tendencies and weaknesses. Once we’ve become more adept at self-observation we can start to ask the larger questions.
When the foundation of our life is rocked by something calamitous, or if we manage to step out of the fog of our own repetitive nature and our own desire for routine, we can set out to discover new things about ourselves, examining who we are, who we want to be, where we are, and where we want to be.
To change is to break the habit of being yourself. By changing each thought we gradually change the thought pattern and thought life. When we learn to enter a state of being, our mind and body are one, and all the gears are set in motion to have change be a permanent state of mind and body. That is evolution.
