The Whole Brain Path to Peace commences with studies of the left and right brain tendencies towards particular modes of behaviour in life, that James Olson has clearly studied in great detail, allowing one to see with utmost clarity where our actions arise from. I have seen many different types of knowledge regarding the tendency towards the logic of the left-brain or the more artistic freeform modes of the right brain, yet the deeper explanations offered by James Olson allow you to fully acknowledge where your actions are generated. Somehow just in the full knowledge of such, it allows a release, if you are ready for this stage in evolution, to a rebirth into unified thought. Personally, my greatest creativity arises following meditation, where I enter fully into states of unity. Many people identify more strongly with the logic left brain, and see the thought processes here as more solid and stable, and as I read through the chapters detailing typical left brain behaviour, I was relieved to release such from my life. The studies are reminiscent to myself of when I studied psychology, and felt subsequently that there was something missing that left a wide void in life, by viewing life through the perspective of purely left brain – which can become to logical and “dry” without the nourishment of the right brain and all its creativity and joyful emotion – yet without the balance, that too, will feel devoid of real peaceful harmony and equilibrium in life. Rising into unity answers this all. Although, for example, in the writing of my reviews, I share what people will find within each product or service, I also write from a whole brain perspective – a unified perspective, and will often delay a review until I reach this state regarding any given product or service. Somehow this allows one to feel the depths and heights of life in new and profound ways previously unimaginable. If one waits until the unified perspective is found, this is true alignment to unity, which contains the whole perspective in perfect balance, allowing for full expression and the ability to encompass life fully.
Important perspectives on relationships are discussed such as separation and feeling: - “ If you want to know how separation feels, remember how it feels to be jealous. Remember how it feels to be lonely. Remember how it feels to be separate from something you want really badly”. James Olson shares the synonyms of separation: - withdrawal, alienation, segregation, disconnection, and isolation. Interestingly most people have felt separation at some point or other in their life.
Sacred Geometry is discussed, including the flower of life and the vesica piscis. I found the section on Linear and Holistic Patterns in Sexuality to be most fascinating: - “Completion, in a dualistic system, means we require a compliment – in the choice of a mate, for example. But the diversity of life ensures that there are exceptions. A mate can compliment us in one energy form and not in another – as when our mate complements us physically (sexually), but not mentally – or vice versa. Sexuality is described from a sacred geometric point of view and the balance of such, as male and female join as one.
