    this is not to sound condescending to anyone because if you take this as condescending then truth does hurt as they say because this is not MEANT to discourage people but to EMPOWER. power of the mind we underestimate ourselves everyday so maybe maybe a spark will start a revolution.

    a revolution of the mind. now "think" about that!

    ok with that said i will begin

    Let's Start From The Bottom and Work Our Way UP!

    YOUR FEET "KNOW" WHEN THEY HURT

    YOUR KNEES "KNOW" WHEN THEY'RE WEAK

    YOUR THIGHS "KNOW" WHEN THEY'RE SORE

    YOUR URINARY TRACT "KNOWS" WHEN IT TIMES TO USE A BATHROOM

    AND WHEN YOU HAVE TO USE THE TOILET UM YOU "KNOW" LOL

    YOUR STOMACH "KNOWS" WHEN IT'S UPSET OF FULL OR EVEN EMPTY IT "KNOWS"

    YOUR CHEST "KNOWS" WHEN IT HURTS

    YOUR THROAT "KNOWS" WHEN IT'S SORE

    YOUR MOUTH "KNOWS" WHEN IT'S DRY

    YOUR NOSE "KNOWS" WHEN IT ITCHES OR IS RUNNING

    YOUR EYE "KNOWS" WHEN THE LIGHT IS TOO BRIGHT OR TOO DIM

    BUT ALL OF SUDDEN WHEN YOU GET TO THE BRAIN ALL "KNOWING" STOPS
    AND THE BRAIN (ONE OF THE MOST ADVANCE ORGANS IN THE HUMAN BODY)
    SUDDENLY SAYS I "KNOW" WHAT I "BELIEVE" now the rest of the body "KNOWS" but the BRAIN "BELIEVES"

    i don't get it :?::?::?::?::?::?:

    somebody help me here please that's all i'm asking

    am i asking too much? then i apologize

    feet and knees can't be smarter than the brain can it?

    are feet and knees smarter than a fifth grader?

    we don't want to know......

    the brain knows, the mind believes.
    what we know is that we don't want to stray out of our comfort zone.
    might be dangerous. might have to do certain things. might get hurt.

    interesting point brother....
    imagine if all of the bodily functions you illustrated were happening at the same time....
    your body wouldn'y know what to do first...take a ish or rub your feet....lol

    this is the level of convolution the brain is under....so instead of working thru this convolution....most people just choose to take the easier route and just believe...

    one love

    The body can only do what the mind tells it to do. When the body is hurting, a message has first come to the mind to allow you to feel the pain of the afflicted area; however the mind can be very dangerous, because your mind can tell you, that I am your enemy, and you will react accordingly, even if you may be wrong. The mind allow people to think that they are addicted, that they are in love, that they need something that they in fact do not need. If we can somehow change the way that we look at things, then the way we look at things also will change. There are wars to be fought, often times it lives inside of us.If the head is chopped off suddenly, and the mind does not send a message to the heart, the body will not know that the fight of life is over, that is until the oxygen stops. If we can learn to change the way we speak, then we will ultimately change the battles we seek.
    Bless Brother!

    i appreciate your comment

    ok then what tells the mind what to do?

    i overstand you point of all the messages to these parts of the body stem from the brain, so if the brain can send CLEAR messages to these body parts
    why is it so difficult for the brain to send itself a message?

    The brain is like a computer, and we get out of it, what we put in. If you believe in a higher power, there stems the main frame so to speak( I don't know computers, I barely know how to use this thread, or edit my page, but that's another story).We learn what things are and what they mean to us, and we react, when things happen based on this knowledge or lack of.This is the reason why two people witnessing the same thing can have two very different emotions, and react in two very different ways. What out rages some, may make others laugh. What may break my heart may make you say Girl, man up! We have been taught certain things and we are inevitably tied to them. Imagine there is no greater sin for most black men,then if when a man hits his mother or sister. I know I taught my son very young to protect me and his sister's and he will give his life to do so. Someone who wasn't taught this might be hurt that someone has hurt their family member, but may not react in the same way as my son would. Risking life and liberty to that cause. As we learn we grow, we build on the chip that is the brain of our computers, when we cross a road of un chartered territory, we pray for understanding and discernment. So if you encounter a person, that does not react the way that you would in a given situation, maybe they just wasn't taught what you have been taught. We learn in different ways; for many of us, it's hard knocks, and some die, with out ever knowing what others know.
    Bless!
