To understand things sufficiently you need a body and a mind that works optimally. A strong mind or brain grasps information more effectively, so it is a key organ that needs as much care as our physical body. The more you train both of them, the better your capacity will be for understanding things and gaining new knowledge. When we learn, we need to provide space for the new information in our brains.
If you want a well-trained mind, you will also need to train your body, as the two work in tandem to create better results. Your brain has no power on its own, if it is not supported by your body, it is fading away. To bring out the best of your mind and get prompt understanding, you need to maximize your body circulation. If you want to improve your blood flow toward your brain, you need to make your heart pump more blood and circulate it more efficiently.
Only by enhancing your blood flow can you free up new space in your mind for the new knowledge you wish to store. What do you need to do to help your heart to deliver larger amounts of your blood? You need to move and exercise consistently. When you move your body or exercise, blood flows more in various parts of your body. But we forgot about the importance of this since we weren’t taught much about this.
We have some kind of prejudice about exercising or working out too much. Some people think such people are muscle heads. There is some truth in this. If someone over-exercises, and doesn’t do so out of gaining optimal health, and adding something through knowledge to the world, their body gets more aesthetic accordingly. When your body becomes more aesthetic, everyone should feel good around you, since you supposedly also radiate health.
On the contrary, if your exercise routine and your body doesn’t reflect health but imbalance, you haven’t improved the state of your body, but made it worse. Why does this matter? Because if you don’t want to understand that your body changed in a way that you may be impressed with, but other people will be looking at you with pity. Because your body reflects obvious imbalance.
This can harm you badly.
But if you also want to understand why you need to train your body, you surely won’t over-force your muscles, instead, you will build up your strength gradually and evenly. This will result in delivering information, or blood consistently to your body parts. Therefore both your muscles and brain can develop equally. In this way, you won’t be on the two extremes of the spectrum, being either a muscle head or a bookworm.
None of these extremes are healthy, and they only result in more social contrast and conflict. This opposition can emerge for life between us because we don’t understand that we need to strive for balance. And balance can only happen when we can connect with everyone with the best intentions. But this is not our current state. Several people though have understood some knowledge that others haven’t perceived yet. It is an awakened state.
It is okay that no one understood some things until now, but it is not okay if we believe that no one will ever understand those things. And why we are currently stuck in our world is because we don’t realize that if we only learn and aren’t willing to understand new knowledge, then we can only perceive and understand what we already know and understand. We are stuck because we don’t believe that someone can understand something that no one has understood yet.
But it will eventually happen. Everything will be understood in time, depending on our speed of grasping things. If we don’t want to receive new knowledge then new ideas are born in vain. More and more new knowledge can be wasted if we are not ready to accept them. It hinders social development if we believe that we already know and understand most of the things. A true awakening of humanity cannot happen this way.
If we observe people in our society who have some knowledge, we will see they are usually the ones who stop progress. The ones with little knowledge. If someone hasn’t understood things for a long time, then gets a bit of knowledge, believes that he or she knows everything. Then, by feeling strong, they want to pull others down to their level. These people lack true knowledge, but we made them believe they know everything.
We live in such an age and time, that people who are unwilling to grow and stop others in their growth, cannot go on anymore. Because they interfere with human development. Expansion cannot be stopped as long as we don’t understand things. And if we have difficulties understanding things, we become foolish, therefore, we need to compensate. We do so by building extra large muscles or learning things that are not too important.
For instance, if you learn to speak more than ten languages, have many degrees, or have lived in plenty of countries, chances are, you cannot utilize a big part of your knowledge well, and they will be wasted. If I want to work in a position that isn’t currently needed because it is obsolete, then I just wasted my time learning it, but cannot make society benefit from my knowledge. Many people currently engage in learning things they won’t use.
There are two ways of acquiring knowledge: by learning, we understand something which other people haven’t understood yet. The other way is memorizing something others have already understood. Through which of these two ways can we develop? Both of them. By memorizing something we can understand where we are at, whereas by learning things we understand we have to continue learning new things. This is our progress and growth process.
When we understand more and more things and are looking for new knowledge, we are getting closer to our awakening. When gaining new useful knowledge you can feel alive as long as you utilize it well, for example, giving them away by educating others. Problems occur if you stop learning new things because someone says this is the highest knowledge you could learn. Yet, knowledge shouldn’t be limited. What happens if they make you believe there’s nothing else to learn?
If you are taught there is no new knowledge, you wouldn’t want to live after a while. But if you are told there are plenty of other things to learn, then you become open, curious, and hungry for knowledge. It gives you the strength to go on and live life to the fullest. You will recognize the miracles of anatomy, such as operating your hormone system well constantly, which will create a forever young-looking, high-quality body. When you realize this, you will search for the how.
Finding answers to the hows? Because our current knowledge is not enough. When you understand this, you will know what’s the next step. You will seek to understand more miracles, and after some time you will realize, they are all within you. Your brain stores all the knowledge that the human has experienced. Everyone’s brain. Therefore, if you want to access all the knowledge that the human has experienced, you have to start with your brain.
And for your brain to get enough blood, and experience all that knowledge, you have to exercise. People who exercise healthily, are more clever, wise, and live further, than those who exercise less, or not frequently. Exercising is also a key factor of health, but we overestimated it. How can we know? We respect our Olympians more than our geniuses these days. Why? Because sports are available these days, and we can compete through them.
We are competitive creatures, willing to be good at, and win in something. If I am not good at human subjects, for instance, I will do sports and will gain more recognition than anyone else, who could be a future Einstein for example. Why do we want this? Because we are not in balance, we don’t understand that we cheer for such top sportsmen who are often unhealthy. We need to realize their body state to wake up and ask ourselves if we want this truly?!
There is no propaganda about the state of the body our Olympic athletes compete with, and no information is available on the dying body they end up having. Because then the game and our entertainment would end. And then, we would need to realize we should develop in other, more intelligent ways. But this would end many positions from which certain people make a good living, and we would stop blindly following our current role models.
