Meditation on the Brain, by Kelly Enck
The goal of meditation is to connect with the expanded mind, the mind outside the brain. It is a state of being, in which the brain relaxes from thoughts. I am working my way through the Teachings and History of each of the Avatars. Buddha the Enlightened One is next! He lived over 2,500 years ago and his teachings are still spreading wildly across the West through Yoga and meditation. Today I heard that San Francisco has Doggie Yoga Classes (Doga)! I'm sure Buddha is laughing!
That’s me in a Buddhist Temple in Bangkok, Thailand. I invite you on my journey around the world to stand in holy sites.... From Hollywood to God is my memoir on Amazon and Kindle, below is a tiny piece of this great adventure!
How many hours does it take to have a "happy brain"? Only 10,000 hours of meditation and your MRI will significantly lit up in both the right and left prefrontal cortex, the area of the brain that makes you happy....(....so that's why they're laughing all the time!) I only have 9,999 hours left to catch up!…smile. Try this exercise on your brain: Everything that comes to you, "Disagree with, no matter what the thought, both good and bad thoughts, this will relax your mind. It's a hard exercise because the brain thinks it IS, it's thoughts. :) The exercise proves that the brain is separate from the expanded mind. Bruce Hood would say, our brain collects data, and this data make up a SELF, listening to the thoughts in order to organize them. The Brain is more like a librarian.

The task was to practice "compassion" meditation, generating a feeling of loving kindness toward all beings. (Study conducted by Richard Davidson, a neuroscientist at the W.M. Keck Laboratory for Functional Brain Imaging and Behavior.) Monk's MRI verses Average Man
My memoir "From Hollywood to God" is now on Amazon and Kindle books!
My first stop was to The World Sound Healing Conference in San Francisco. I wanted to understand the science of frequencies, especially if everything in the universe was vibrating to their own unique song!
I waited in the large conference room to hear Dr. Susan Yale's lecture on the Harmonic Oscillator.
The room went black and three pyramids projected on a movie screen.
"You can hear the sound of "nature" between the Pyramids of Giza," Dr. Yale said, pausing, "it's a perfect F Sharp."
No one moved. She spoke slowly, "If you knew there was a place in the world where you could hear God, would you go?"
I always wanted to sleep on the Nile!"
