Buddha’s Brain: Rick Hanson; limiting life with PTSD behavior!


.
.
“The brain is the primary mover and shaper of the mind.
.
It’s so busy that, even though it’s only 2 percent of the body’s weight, it uses 20–25 percent of its oxygen and glucose.
.
Like a refrigerator, it’s always humming away, performing its functions; consequently, it uses about the same amount of energy whether you’re deep asleep or thinking hard.
.
The number of possible combinations of 100 billion neurons firing or not is approximately 10 to the millionth power, or 1 followed by a million zeros, in principle; this is the number of possible states of your brain.”
.
.
My two cents: PTSD limited me to one or two dominant trigger thoughts all day in the past.
.
See, barriers are created by thinking with PTSD, not directed thought, meandering in the minefield of trauma memories type of thought.
.
Look how much mind, opportunity we are wasting on worthless, powerless, the unreality of dissociation.
.
Do not add to your suffering, take action, fight for your freedom, for the use of the rest of your mind, fight, you do not have to win to heal, just fight.
