Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D, is a Neuro-Anatomist who was trained at Harvard Medical School. Her specialty is in the postmortem investigation of the human brain as it relates to schizophrenia and the other severe mental illnesses.
In her book, titled My Stroke of Insight, she writes about her experiences in 1996, while suffering a form of arterio-venous malformation stroke, which allowed her the rare privilege of being able to study a stroke as it was actually occurring. During this stroke, she was able to watch as her own brain functions shut down, one by one – her ability to walk, talk, read and write.
The swelling and trauma of the stroke placed pressure on the dominant left hemisphere of Dr. Taylor’s brain. As a result, she was unable to recall any part of her life. But, in the absence of the neural circuitry of her left hemisphere, her consciousness shifted into the present moment. This was when the functions of her right hemisphere increased. Her right hemisphere left her feeling expansive, totally at peace in the Universe and connected as part of it.
Dr. Taylor was forced to undergo major brain surgery to remove a large blood clot that was putting pressure on her language centers. Although the stroke damaged the left side of her brain, her recovery burst forth an avalanche of creative energy from the right side.[i] She now travels the country educating audiences about the beauty of the brain. In 2008, she was chosen as one of TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World.

The Divine Law of Polarity states that opposites are really two extremes of the same thing. Life is a circle of frequencies. There is neither good nor evil; there is only wisdom and ignorance.
He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good.
The left hemisphere is the side that is concerned only with our human condition. It understands logic, mathematics, sequential relation-ships and the parasympa-thetic nervous system. Its main job is to place everything in this reality into a Time line. This creates the illusion that we are finite, that we are separate from one another and separate from God.
In contrast, the right hemisphere of the brain is the side that represents the creative part of the human biology. This includes music, rhythm, imagination, intuition, humor, dreams and the sympathetic nervous system. The right hemisphere understands that we are infinite, connected in unity to one another and to God.
Peace is only a thought away, and all we have to do to access it is silence the voice of our dominating left mind.

There is no duality of good and bad. Everything is simply an experience. But, since the Fall of Man, we have been opposing the dark side of virtually everything. This has caused us to become imbalanced. And it is the split between the two hemispheres of our brains that causes us to live life in this imbalanced way.
Light is the symbol of objectivity; Darkness of subjectivity. Manly P. Hall
In the current evolution of man, it is the left hemisphere of our brain that is being adapted. This re-wiring process is establishing new synaptic pathways between the two sides, which will promote a new relationship with Space and Time. It’s a process that will continue as we move through the year 2012 and beyond.[ii] The new way in which our brains will then begin to communicate will promote the end of duality and the beginning of Unity consciousness.
To this day the same Veil remains when the old covenant is read. It has not been removed, because only in Christ is it taken away. II Corinthians 3:14
Our true nature is pure, flawless and holy. But we have forgotten that everything else is just the Earth Game.
