A Holistic car with two travelers
Have you been on a road journey anytime, just you and one other friend of yours, a very close friend but maybe exactly opposite of you…have you been to unknown roads, decided unknown destinations, how did you end up there?
Did you fight with each other, loose track or reached there perfectly as planned?
Take you back to those days right?
But did you have a special car?
No I am not talking about a technically advanced car, what am I talking about then?
You will know soon, first let me introduce you to two types of travellers who have embarked on the Holistic journey.
So our two travelers are The Left Brain traveler, and the other is The Right Brain Traveler, just like one of them is the thinking brain, the other is the feeling brain.
The Thinking Brain , a very methodical thinker, well read, loves logic, science, a traveler who loves to know it all, plan things ahead, read reviews, have a fixed chalked out plan, very factual, let’s say just like a highly logical left brain dominant personality
But the Right Feeling Brain is a happy go lucky person, most unplanned one, who loves to go where he feels at his free will, more intuitively attracted to something, depends on the feel of things rather than logistic, a very artistic kind of person, where logic doesn’t play a role, the day dreamer who could reach any place without at least having an idea about how to get there, he is mostly in his own world, this person is like a right brain dominant personality…
Each of your two brains has its strengths and weaknesses.
The Left Thinking Brain is conscientious, accurate, and impartial. It is methodical and rational, but it is also slow. It requires a lot of effort and energy, and like a muscle, it must be built up over time and can become fatigued if overexerted.
The Right Feeling Brain, however, arrives at its conclusions quickly and effortlessly. The problem is that it is often inaccurate and irrational. The Feeling Brain is also a bit of a drama queen and has a bad habit of overreacting.
Now coming back to our two travelers in this special car,
Who do you think should be at the driver’s seat and who should be sitting next to the driver and the navigator?
If only the left thinking guy is controlling the show, that is navigating and driving then what will happen? But what if the right feeling guy is taking all the controls, what would happen?
What if the right brain traveller is on the driver seat and navigating just listening to its gut feelings and intuitions, his feeling brain will screw the left logical part. He will suddenly stop in the middle of the road and want to explore some other part, take an impulsive turn and reach somewhere else; start partying in the middle of the road. Right brain becomes irrational, meaning it cannot be reasoned with. And this brings us to even worse news; emotional problems can only have emotional solutions. It’s all up to the feeling brain and if you’ve seen how most people’s Feeling Brains drive, that’s pretty scary.
The car then will become something like a clown car, isn’t it? Driven by the haywire unidirectional flow…
But if the car is driven by the Left Brain Traveller then it would suck the joy of the travel, and loose its entire energy in calculations, directions, paths, time management and systematization it would be a left brain dominated will be another type of clown car too!!!
But only left brain or right brain dominated car becomes chaotic, inappropriate at all levels the way we feel, think, perceive, sense and react. It’s like pushing only the left brain to extreme and you have hypertrophy of that brain and the right is not growing and gradually shrieking and vise-versa.
So what do you think our special car should be like?
Should it be a left thinking clown car? Or right feeling a clown car?
Or should it be a balance of both right brain traveller and left brain traveller?
Lets unfold the answer….
In our holistic car the right brain traveller is our driver and the left brain traveller is the navigator. The Left Brain has stacks of maps to reality that it has drawn and accumulated throughout life. It knows how to double back and find alternate routes to the same destination. It knows where the bad turns are and where to find the short-cuts. Left Brain develops a tendency to draw maps explaining or justifying where the right brain has already decided it wants to go.
When The Right Brain comes out with something like spontaneous travel plan, destination, profession, wish, relationship, creativity the left brain with its system, logic and linear steps finds out how to walk on that path, how to drive to that destination. Left like a google map makes a perfect map for a destination, in between even if right brain suddenly changes plan and comes up with something new, the left brain rearranges the destination and give systematic plan again.
So when both work in unison, the right brain playing the role of the driver and the left brain the navigator then our holistic car is balanced. The right brain will drive with ease under the perfect navigational instructions of the left logical thinking brain, the right brain exploration would be without misdirection, a true balanced one.
When only one driver becomes active dominant or controls the holistic car, then everything about the car goes haywire, the destination, the speed, the direction. Only when both passengers are equally present guiding that car then it will move towards its own holistic unique design in a healthy way. The right brain at the driver’s seat and left brain navigating will effortlessly arrive to its destination and the whole journey will be fun, full of life and appropriate.
When the right intuitive non-logical non-linear artistic brain is our driver and the thinking left logical linear scientific brain is the navigator, our holistic car gradually moves towards our individualistic and holistic design. And gradually attracts people, places, relationships, desires, interests and hobbies, profession, higher purpose etc according to our inner holistic design and then each of these areas become a remedy.
Each of these areas keeps us in tune with our holistic pattern and purpose.
