Doctor: You silly child. You cannot make a decision with your heart because its function is to pump blood through your body. Your brain alone aids in decision making. Your heart only wants blood and that would make you like a vampire to think like that. Unless you desire to have more blood pass through your heart, don’t rely on your heart for decisions.
Assistant: Why do you have to be so literal? Why can’t you tell this child what he wants to hear.
Doctor: A human that only wants to listen to what others feel to tell without asking questions is a human that has given up on life. Now kid, do you want to hear the cliche answer that you want me to give that will get you no closer to making a decision or do you want the truth.
Kid: The truth.
Doctor: Good. Very good. There is hope for humanity after all.
Doctor: While the heart has no capability of telling you how you should make this decision, you should rely on your brain’s kidney to assist your mind, which can be likened to your brain’s heart, in making the right decision for you.
Kid: My Brain’s kidney, what is that?
Doctor: If you would take a second to think about it then you will be using your brain’s kidney in the process.
Assistant: He is just a kid. You cannot expect him to know.
Doctor: Alright. The brain’s kidney is your frontal lobe. You know what that is right.
Kid: Yes. It is one of four lobes that make up the brain.
Doctor: Like blood flowing through your kidneys, your thoughts flow through your frontal lobe. Just as blood does not originate from the kidneys, your memories and thoughts do not originate from your frontal lobe. Your mind or brain’s heart is what pumps all your memories and thoughts through your brain and just as your heart works in unison with your kidneys to filter, clean, and regulate your blood so that it can be used properly, your mind should likewise work in unison with your frontal lobe to make sure that your thoughts are filtered and regulated so you can make the right choices and decisions at any time or when necessary. This however is not always the case as…
Kid: Then, based on what you have said so far, I should be able to make this decision with my mind because I already made up my mind.
Doctor: If you made up your mind then why are you here getting extra opinions on the decision you should make. Let me finish. Now where was I… Oh, right. Blood does not originate from the kidneys but the heart pumps the right portion of blood through your kidneys to keep your blood healthy and enriched. Your mind should consistently send your thoughts through your frontal lobe to filter your thoughts and memory sequences so you can make clear decisions at the right times in life but unlike your heart and kidneys that naturally work with each other even without us realizing it, you have to control how you filter and apply your thoughts. It takes time and much effort to get your mind and frontal lobe to work in a timely manner as your heart and kidneys. Seeing as you are a child and inexperienced at making life choices, this is why you are so confused on what you should do; despite having your mind made up. Now my question for you is, what is your frontal lobe relaying to your mind that you actually need to do? Answering that question will allow you to balance what your mind tells you that you want to do and what your frontal lobe is telling you what you need to do. Learning how to get your mind and frontal lobe to agree effectively and promptly will allow you to make decisions without ever questioning them; unless you are deciding to do something you know you may regret from the start. You seem like a bright child though, you should figure this out.
Kid: What can I do to get my mind and frontal lobe to work more naturally with each other?
Doctor: You have to constantly meditate on everything you learn and reflect on the things that matter most to you. As a child you are not inclined to examine things you learn and you tend to focus more on things that mean more to you. If you don’t meditate on things you learn then your brain will be flooded with extra unfiltered information that will get in the way when it is time to act on what you need to do in a situation; this causes the decision making process to be more difficult. Instead making a quick and concise decision, you are bombarded with extra information that you do not know what it may or may not have to do with what you should actually do when it is time to act on a decision. When you meditate on something you are removing unneeded information on that subject that has nothing to do with things that have meaning to you. This is how meditation along with reflecting on what is important to you will make it easier to keep your thoughts filtered and understand what you want in life thus making the right decisions in your life more natural for you to accomplish.
