"Awakening is beyond time and is more a state of realization that we can come to that is the nature of who we always were."
A recent "thought" occurred to me that paradox is very important on the spiritual path. Our brain has two hemispheres, right and left. The left hemisphere is where most logic and reasoning takes place and the right hemisphere is where most creative and holistic thinking takes place. My theory that I would like to propose is that ego lives primarily in the left-brain and that a move "mind to heart" on the spiritual path is a movement from left-brained to right-brained thinking. In this theory, I propose that paradox is a tool that we can use to help confuse the left-brain and encourage right-brain function.
