Unity. Here is a subversive idea. Most self-improvement material is written by the writerís language channel, for other language channels to read. Your language channel is the part of your brain that talks and reads. Other modules in your brain handle the job of doing things. The modules donít always work together. Ideas have to get past your language channel to help the parts of your brain that get things done.
The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.
You sometimes hear a language channel complain about how it canít control the other parts of the brain. You often get advice from somebodyís language channel about how your language channel can get better control of what you do. You often hear a language channel make a resolution.
I give myself such very good advice,
Language channels donít always get their way. Then people talk about internal conflict. As if different parts of themselves were working at cross purposes. As if they had different parts of their brains with conflicting objectives. As if they could not get those parts to cooperate in a team effort. As if there were something wrong with that situation.
You can do more if you get your whole head behind you.
Unity, the alternative, is a team effort inside your head. If you practice it, the quiet modules of your brain will get more of your attention. You will get more use out of them. They will have more influence in what you do. You will begin to see them as part of you.
I've got brains I havenít even used yet.
Why is this subversive? We are not going to say. The quiet modules of your brain will figure it out. Language channels, we hope, wonít even notice.
You donít want to be too open about
Zen and existentialism
Do you sometimes feel that parts of your mind are pulling in different directions? You may be right. Your brain does a number of jobs at the same time. Those jobs are in different parts of your brain. The parts donít all march to the same drummer. Here we suggest a few simple things you can do to get the parts in step. Then you are the drummer.
