WISDOM THROUGH EMOTIONAL HEALTH.

The whole world is looking for answers to fix the ills of society. All efforts are directed to changing minds through mind education; while it is the emotional baggage of the brain that needs to be healed. The time has come to focus on healing the brain.

Governments try to fix, manage and control the ills of society by passing better and better laws based on carrots and sticks. It is like passing a law to make a nitrogen producing machine to produce oxygen; because what they do is they try to fix emotionally challenged brains by passing laws.

There is a one step Solution to improving the economy, education, crime, greed, corruption, rivalries, relationships, parenting, health, happiness etc. By introducing Brain Education and creating emotional health for the young and the old; the path to a Wise Society is not via Teaching Wisdom; it is through creating Emotional Baggage Free Brains. Emotional Health is the Key to a Wise Society!

As wisdom springs from emotional health; the focus must shift from trying to understand, define and teach wisdom to creating emotional health. The following steps are needed to ensure wisdom/emotional-health:

1) Creating a compulsory program for training parents in nurturing
healthy self-identity/emotional-intelligence/brain/mind/wisdom/emotional-health/self-image
in their young.

2) Create brain/mind/self-identity/emotional-health/wisdom/emotional-intelligence-
inspectors/coaches who must track and guide/coach the
brain/mind/self-identity development from birth onwards till th
infant enters school.

3) Train teachers to detect and heal emotionally challenged
self-identities of the young and the old students.

4) Create self-identity/wisdom/emotional-intelligence/self-image/happiness seminars for those older.

5) Create a whole new subject for all grade levels; that transforms brains and minds into super-emotional-health/wisdom.

6) Our leaders must use the bully pulpit to wake up America to the damage that we are doing to our future generations by raising them on the false belief that each one is the best. Each must be raised as Tiger Woods’ dad raised Tiger. He did not tell Tiger that Tiger is the best; he made Tiger become the best.

7) Just as learning each extra subject like math and science; even painting and learning to play music adds extra brain power to the brain, similarly learning computer coding/programming adds extra power to the brain. Computer programing must be added as a compulsory subject for PreK-12 and beyond.

8) We create emotional health in our girls as we bring them up humble. We bring up our boys macho. It is the macho-ness in our boys that generates emotionally challenged brains that lead to all these ills of society. No wonder our girls are better in most fields compared to our boys. We must create a Wise Parenting law that ensures bring up both our girls and boys as humble as possible.

Our Leaders Must Wake up to the Fact that Mind Education is Built on the Foundation of Brain Education and Yet Brain Education is Ignored, Neglected and Above all the Brain is Miseducated.

2) EXPLAINING AND CREATING WISDOM THROUGH APPS

Please consider my apps to optimize the hidden brain potential and experience the sheer effortless joy of pure wisdom through emotional health.

For thousands of years our wisdom experts have been asking the same old question again and again, ‘What is wisdom?’. The answer after all these years is still pretty much elusive because of the very nature of wisdom. Wisdom is a symptom of an emotionally healthy brain. Focusing on the symptom is like trying to understand smoke to understand the fire. Thus teaching wisdom is like trying to create smoke on its own without even knowing that it is generated by the fire. Even when we know what is wisdom we still have to figure out how to become wise.

Too much focus is on trying to figure out wisdom and hardly any on how to become wise; when becoming wise is what is essential and is all
that counts.

The tragedy of wisdom education is that our experts are still confused about the functions of the brain and mind. The mind functions in words while the brain in biochemical reactions that are generated by the existing brain wiring. When the mind is taught wisdom knowledge in words, it wants to follow but the brain biochemically filters the lessons based on past fixations. The mind tries to soak up the inspiring insights but the brain’s existing beliefs alter and pollute the new knowledge. So all this wisdom (mind) education falls on
deaf/emotionally-challenged brains.

The brain is like a movie projector that projects a self-conscious self-image. An emotionally challenged brain continuously projects an emotionally challenged self-image and current wisdom education is like instead of repairing the projector/brain the projected self-image is taught to educate itself into wisdom. It is like the movie projector is projecting a black and white image and attempts are made to change
the image into color through educating the self-image! Say if the self-image is physically red; can it be educated into becoming blue? It is very clear that creating wisdom has little to do with educating the mind and has everything to do with healing the brain; the source of the mind.

When defining wisdom none of the wisdom experts nor any of the dictionaries will say that wisdom above all is
pure/emotionally-healthy love. As love is an emotion; so is wisdom an emotion. Even a child knows that love is a function of the heart. The heart is an agent of the brain; as it has 40,000 brain neurons. Thus wisdom is a function of the brain and heart. No wonder all these tens of thousands of books on wisdom do not make one wise; as these books
try to teach the mind wisdom; when it is the brain that needs to be changed/healed physically. The focus has to shift to making the brains emotionally healthy.

Our wisdom sages think that wisdom is a body of knowledge that needs to be discovered and taught. So they keep putting wisdom under the microscope and all they find are the attributes of wisdom. So they try to define wisdom by its attributes. But they miss wisdom as wisdom is much more than the sum of its parts. Wisdom is like a cake and so by
describing the cake as sugar, butter and/or flour they totally
misdefine the cake! If someone has not seen a cake and is told that the cake is sugar, butter etc.; then how can he perceive the cake and much less understand and experience the cake? Just imagine giving someone sugar and saying, ‘Here, have a cake”!

Human nature/consciousness is like a bicycle that runs on a mind wheel and a brain wheel. The mind wheel we keep improving and the brain wheel we ignore, neglect and damage without even being aware of the implications. Naturally consciousness is messed up and as a result, all
life and society are messed up for the vast majority. Any wonder why in spite of all this great progress in civilization; crime, economic struggles, unhappiness, class, and race divides, are all still stuck in the stone age? It is because our experts try to fix the bicycle of life by trying to fix the mind wheel by educating the mind wheel; as the mind wheel is all they are focused on. It is time to wake up to the fact that the brain wheel has to be fixed directly through brain education; where brain education for the young is upbringing and is
brain therapy for the old.

Rather than asking ‘What is wisdom’, the winning question is, ‘What is wisdom made from?’

Wisdom is generated by selflessness. Like wisdom; selflessness is misunderstood as considering one’s self as an insignificant zero. Just
like zero is not just any number, it is the essential number that has given man the foundation for solid science, the computer age and the web cloud; selflessness is the power that generates wisdom.

Selflessness does not stand for putting one’s self down as nothing. It stands for being so fully satisfied and confident with one’s own self-worth that one does not need to focus on the self being less or more.It enables one to just not focus on one’s own self-worth at all and be fully immersed in living in the now. Selflessness provides the unconscious supreme confidence of being equally significant in a world
where everyone else is just as precious; regardless of
race, color or class.

The face of selflessness is humbleness. We already bring up our girls humble. As a result, our girls are far more emotionally- healthy/wise. No wonder our girls are better in every way except in science; even that is because we have created a wrong belief that boys are better in science. We bring up our boys macho. Machoness is the very opposite of
humbleness. It is macho-ness that leads to most of the ills of society from crime to drug addictions, to child and wife abuse, student failures and all the other mess in society. Imagine if we brought up our boys humble; just as we bring up our girls. Both our boys and girls need to be brought up as humble as possible.

It is upbringing that determines humbleness. As wisdom education is over by the time the child is five years old; the road to wisdom is first and foremost through Wise Parenting for the young and Brain Therapy for those older who have missed the bus.

Wisdom education is like farming. You do not need to know what is involved in the seed becoming a fruit bearing tree. All you need is good farming principles. What you need to know is how to become wisdom. According to the latest advances in the mind sciences, wisdom is the highest level of emotional intelligence; that springs from an emotionally healthy brain. An emotionally healthy brain is a brain free of all emotional baggage. Thus wisdom education for the old is brain therapy that removes the emotional baggage from the brain.

Our experts try and fail to create wisdom as they leave the ignorance generating emotional baggage in place in the brain. It takes decades of experience to grind out the emotional baggage that blocks wisdom. Our app Emotional Health grinds out the emotional baggage now.

We have created Emotional Health Apps(TM); a startup that has apps that will replace wisdom education that tries to teach wisdom knowledge to the emotionally challenged mind with the road map to make the brain emotionally healthy. These apps show the path to emotional health that generates wisdom.

Wise/Emotionally-Healthy Parenting

The vast majority of parents provide emotionally challenged parenting that creates emotionally challenged brains and to correct this we have developed the app — Wise Parenting. This app will enable parents to ensure emotionally healthy brains in their children.

Emotional-Health/Wisdom

Our experts try and fail to create wisdom as they leave the ignorance generating emotional baggage in place in the brain. It takes decades of experience to grind out the emotional baggage that blocks wisdom. This app will heal/grind out the emotional baggage now.

Shyness

Over a third of the population is shy. This app shows how to
overcome shyness and harness its advantages. This app reveals why mild and moderate shyness has to be celebrated as it is the health club of the mind and brain.

Happiness/Relationship

The most important research on Happiness has revealed that it is the quality of relationships that determine the level of happiness. The fundamental relationship that colors all relationships is the one that each individual has between one’s own brain and mind. This app will create an emotionally healthy relationship between the brain and mind.

So please consider my apps to optimize the hidden brain potential and experience the sheer effortless joy of pure wisdom through emotional health.
