Sir, I am reading superbrain i think I am reading a text full knowledge like any university contextual book. Many many thanks sir.It is really a balm.

Knowing, and acting upon what one feels one knows, is a maturing process. At each, call it higher, stage the previous stages are not replaced but come into service of the next stage. For example, learning to read does not replace the more simplistic and mechanical learning of the ABC’s, in fact the ABC’s become more useful and meaningful. The same holds true for mind-based impulse/reason/intellect which becomes more useful and purified when in service to the heart-based stages of knowing such as intuition, insight, illumination, and realization. Really learning who and what ONE IS is a thoroughly integrated and transformative process. It is a fulfillment and a treasure of untold worth.

Deepak .. you\'ve mentioned \'complementary\' in your previous Posts _ so shouldn\'t it be that sometimes one must respond \'impulsively\' and at other moments _ a slow, deliberate and thoughtful response is required. The God that either is or Who controls the Universe will know when and where the appropriate response is called for. francis a. novello + kissy the cockatiel ( only a bird ) UD 2007

I see many knee-jerk reactions fall under impulsive actions ~ and can lead one to heart-aches and head-aches ~
