How Much Is Your Brain Worth, Part 3

Additional adjustments to a mind valuation approach may be necessary in some instances when minds are held in states like:
  • old-fashioned ideals incompatible with egalitarian values
  • programmed routines that distort behavior, in particular when faced with new scenarios
  • inability to identify mental programs and systems and rewrite them while continuing to function in ordinary society
  • personal biases with respect to ingrained cultural systems
  • excessive behavior overly focused on survival, self-preservation, trust, fear, boredom, hoarding, materialism, greed, lack of discipline, restlessness, an inability to maintain coherent thought strands for long durations of time
  • other behavioral artifacts of mind include body pain, emotional angst, an over focus on self-gratification, yearning, guilt, overcharged emotions, addictions, poor boundary systems, obsessive attachments, frigidity, emotional numbness, and fears of pleasure 
  • still the list goes on... suffering mind's also experience issues with power and submission, ego and aggression, scattered thoughts and inconstancy, weak will and poor self-esteem, passiveness and sluggishness or laziness

At the higher vibratory end of the spectrum of a suffering mind are the following reflections: 

  • an over-focus on personal relationships
  • issues of self-acceptance, maintaining balance, knowing when to exercise compassion, coming to terms with grief, codependencies, possessiveness, jealousies, shyness, loneliness, isolation, lack of empathy, bitterness, cynicism
  • challenges in communication, presenting oneself to others in a way that is consistent with one's own innate perception of self, clear communication, inspiring creativity, sensing when something external resonates within, knowing what energie to send out, the desire to speak and be heard, identifying one's creative abilities, when to talk and how much to talk as opposed to when to listen, the tendency to over-extend oneself, poor rhythms, awkwardness in public, aphasia
  • active engagement in exploring one's own intuitive nature or imagination, self-reflection, inductive perceptions or assessments, complex interpretations, the ability to see beyond, exploration of identity vs. illusions, the practice of searching for patterns, not being as kind to oneself as one is to others, poor memory as a result of an over-focus on fine tuning oneself to harmonize with varying inputs
  • and finally, the biggest challenges suffering minds face relate to awareness, self-knowledge, growth in wisdom, maintaining conscious awareness of one's place in relationship to others, peacefully managing the amount of time inherent in maintaining multiple connections, the desire to connect on a universal level to expand that connective reach with the addition of others, the often time reaction to retreating and lack of desire to return to "reality" due to pleasurable or freeing aspects of disassociation, occasional issues relating to skepticism, and if one is not entirely careful, complete and utter apathy

In this respect, mind valuation can be used as a tool to fight all the complexities of processing both internal external information from the vantage point of a human mind operating in conjunction with a human brain, and after taking all of this in have the strength of mind and desire to reprogram our thoughts to the highest ideal we can conceive. If we can master this modus operandi we can train our minds to operate more efficiently and harness that knowledge for others and in our pedagogic models which aspire to teach the heights of human endeavor to future generations, i.e., those lively and playful minds that are growing profusely.
