Feature Article:
Mind or Heart?

It is difficult to say with any certainty where the notion of "an opening heart" originates, but it exists in all cultures. What gives rise to the equation that somehow the heart is the source of caring and emotion is also somewhat of a mystery. However, there is no mystery when it comes to knowing what is meant by a "broken heart" or "opening our hearts."

Many people nowadays think of mind power as some force that exerts itself in inner and outer ways as with self-discipline or in some psychic manner. For me, after over a quarter of cenury studying mind, motivation and behavior, mind power is simply the starting point or ignition for "heart power." As with our thought of this month, "a change of heart is a change of mind."

Many believe that self-help and self-improvement is about rags to riches, failure to success, and so forth, when indeed it is the beginning of journey into self-discovery. Inside every human being is an eternal truth and a life purpose. Using our mind power is simply starting the engine on that journey of self-discovery and highest self-actualization.

An enlightened mind is an open heart. An open heart is warm, understanding, loving, forgiving, compassionate and so forth. Indeed, it could well be argued, and has been in various religions, that an open heart is that path to the Divine. It is the path because it is the way in which we see the Grand Organizing Designer (GOD). With that in mind, I am sometimes bewildered by those who would argue that mind power, "messing with the mind or fate" or what have you, is somehow iherently wrong. Cultivating an enlightened mind is opening the heart and opening the heart begins with changing the mind.
There's a wonderful story that was passed around on the Internet recently by Temple of Peace (templeofpeace.net). The story goes like this:
"A University professor at a well known institution of higher learning challenged his students with this question. "Did God create everything that exists?"
A student bravely replied, "Yes he did!"
"God created everything?" The professor asked.
"Yes sir, he certainly did," the student replied.
The professor answered, "If God created everything; then God created evil. And, since evil exists, and according to the principle that our works Define who we are, then we can assume God is evil."
The student became quiet and did not respond to the professor's Hypothetical definition. The professor, quite pleased with himself, boasted to the students that he had proven once more that the religious faith was a myth. Another student raised his hand and said, May I ask you a question, professor?"
"Of course", replied the professor.
The student stood up and asked, "Professor, does cold exist?"
"What kind of question is this? Of course it exists. Have you never been cold?"
The other students snickered at the young man's question. The young man replied, "In fact sir, cold does not exist. According to the laws of physics, what we consider cold is in reality the absence of heat. Everybody or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (-460 F) is the total absence of heat; and all matter becomes inert and incapable of reaction at that temperature. Cold does not exist. We have created this word to describe how we feel if we have no heat."
The student continued, "Professor, does darkness exist?"
The professor responded, "Of course it does."
The student replied, "Once again you are wrong sir, darkness does not exist either. Darkness is in reality the absence of light. Light we can study, but not darkness. In fact, we can use Newton's prism to break white light into many colors and study the various wavelengths of each color. You cannot measure darkness. A simple ray of light can break into a world of darkness and illuminate it. How can you know how dark a certain space is? You measure the amount of light present. Isn't this correct? Darkness is a term used by man to describe what happens when there is no light present."
Finally the young man asked the professor, "Sir, does evil exist?"
Now uncertain, the professor responded, "Of course, as I have already said. We see it everyday. It is in the daily examples of man's inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil."
To this the student replied, "Evil does not exist, sir, or at least it does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when Man does not have God's love present in his heart. It's like the cold that comes when there is no heat, or the darkness that comes when there is no light."
The professor sat down.
The young man's name -- Albert Einstein. A true story."

As a new spring season is upon us, I wish you all the budding opportunities, flowering possibilities and new growth that this wonderful thing we call life has to offer. May your minds be enlightened and your hearts opened and made light.

Thanks for taking the time to listen. Eldon

Science Briefs:

Spatial advantages may be due more to wealth than sex Researcher Susan Levine of the University of Chicago has found a link between the nature and variety of stimuli available to young people that threatens the old adage that males outperform females on spatial tasks due to inherent propensities. What Levine found strongly suggests that if such a propensity exists for young males, tys and activities that promote spatial skills crucially influence it. In Levine's study, the children of poor families faired much less favorable between sexes than did the children from economically advantaged families. (Bower 2005)

Menstrual cycle changes women's brain According to the findings of David Silbersweig of Cornell University an area of the brain known as the orbitofrontal cortex changes during monthly cycles. This area of the brain is involved in regulating emotion and is more active "in response to negative words" than to neutral or positive words during menstruation. (Brownlee 2005)


Nonstick chemicals make for sticky behavior Niclas Johansson and fellow researchers have shown that nonstick products such as those found in kitchen pots and pans "can rewire the brain in ways that dramatically affect behavior." (Raloff 2006)


That moldy smell may kill brain cells. Reporting in Science News about an upcoming report in Environmental Health Perspectives, Janet Raloff warns Katrina victims to watch ut for a "common black mold that blooms on moist cellulose-based materials--from wallboard and ceiling tiles to cardboard." It seems that this black mold creates a toxin that can kill brain cells. The toxin called satratoxin targets certain neurons according to Jack Harkema of Michigan State College. (Raloff 2006)

Brainy Babies come from Fitter Moms Gerb Kempermann of the Max Delbruck Center for Molecular Medicine in Berlin, Germany reported finding that fit moms provide neurological benefits to newborns in the March 7th Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Kempermann's team compared brains of children during gestation and after birth. The team focused on the area of the brain thought to be important in the consolidation of memories, an area known as the dentate gyrus. Where the findings are suggestive, other researchers caution exercise during pregnancy. (Brownlee 2006)

Placebo or mind power? According to the research findings of Jian Kong of Massachusetts General Hospital in Charlestown, pain enters in the brain respond to placebo treatment. Kong used functional magnetic resonance imaging to track blood flow in the brain and found that "pronounced blood flow, a sign of intense neural activity, in six brain regions" emerged when subjects reported less pain. This study can be contrasted with the work of Tor Wager of Columbia University who found that blood flow decreased under similar conditions. The exact mechanism is not known, but the differences could be due to designs. One study looked at "elevated activity in pain related brain regions" while the other examined a later phase of pain. Of this there is no disagreement, "positive expectations can reduce pain." (Bower 2006)
