RIGHT BRAIN ACTIVITY.
Right brain activity tends to be creative and innovative in character while left brain activity is rational and step-wise. The left brain controls the right side of the body and the right brain controls the left side of the body. Although it is not true that all left-handed people are more creative than right-handed people, many lefties are indeed creative. Ideally, both left- and right-handed people would be able to combine brain hemispheres and be both creative and rational. Unfortunately, most of us are either one or the other and combining both is not taught well in our schools, society, or by our peers.
The right brain contains the fifth brain circuit which is a holistic, superconscious state and is a major goal of Tantric rituals. Opening the fifth brain circuit, represented by Tiphareth in the Tree of Life, brings the feeling of bliss, a vision of wholeness, the abililty to see holistically, and a neurosomatic ability, among many other benefits. It is also the first step to even higher brain circuits with abilities we almost never tap into.
Another right brain activity is sex. The fourth brain circuit, the sexual circuit is located in the right hemisphere of our brains. When this brain circuit is energized, chemical changes are made in the body and brain which are enormously healing, inspirational, and energizing. This energy and chemistry can be used to awaken and energize the fifth brain circuit, creating even more chemical changes in the body of a highly desirable nature. We can heal our bodies with the chemical changes these brain circuits produce (neurosomatic means mind over matter) and many Tantric rituals, many techniques of the Tree of Life, and much of the teachings of the Tao are designed in such a way as to energize these two circuits.
Methods of opening the right brain functions abound and include music, sex, art, exercise, massage, color therapy, aroma therapy, accupressure, polarity therapy, and much more. This book is about Tantra which is the attainment of spiritual values through control of sexual energy. Therefore, we will discuss principally the manner in which sex is used to open the right brain functions and specifically the fourth and fifth brain circuits. In our fore-brain, the frontal lobes, there are several more brain circuits seldom or never used consciously by the average person. We will also discuss later how to open these brain circuits by using the paths created by activating the right brain circuits. The reason sex is emphasized here is because this is the energy which is used to open the even higher and more powerful brain circuits available in our frontal lobe areas, the so-called “new brain” unique to humans and so seldom used by any of us.
The first goal of a student of Tantra is to overcome Ego and Biosurvival circuit control. To do this the student focuses on the Rational and Sexual circuits, excluding the control of sex by the Ego. In this manner, the right brain circuits are opened by the Rational brain circuit and not controlled by the childish and selfish Ego. When this is successful, the student will undergo a major change and the further opening of the right brain will commence with the influence of the fifth brain circuit, the most powerful of the right brain circuits. The Ego has seniority in the circuitry of the brain and normally controls all but the even more senior Biosurvival circuit. It takes a retraining method to move control of the brain from the Ego to the Rational mind, more training to be able to control the energy of the Sexual brain circuit, and even more training to be able to learn to think from the activity of the fifth brain circuit instead of thinking from the Ego or even the Rational mind.
