126. I Was Free When I Realized

I was free when I realized the cage was made of thoughts.


By Mississippi Sound

Negative thoughts capture you until you are no longer free. 
They imprison you in fear, anger, and depression and you have to heal that broken mental attack to walk in freedom again. 
With God all things are possible! God said be sure my Son to take those thoughts and bring them in that which I created you for. So the evil one, not flesh and blood, but those spirits attached to flesh and blood can not use your negative thoughts because the are in alignment with my purpose for you. I have not given you a spirit … of fear .. but in my alignment releases power, love, and a sound mind. I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you in hope and in you a prosperous future! 
The weapons that are formed against you by the evil one will not prosper but will fall at the wayside with no penetration. And we in our power are the weapons that penetrate evil!

Organized Networks


By Boston C!

(Inspired commentary based on “Switch On Your Brain” by Dr. Caroline Leaf)

The Organized Networks in the Brain. 
These coordinated and organized networks in our brains work together in a busy, integrated, and balanced way, helping our brains maintain a high level of activity 24/7. 
These networks form the brain’s inner life with the default mode network (DMN) dominating and becoming especially active when the mind is introspective and thinking deeply in a directed rest or an idling state. The DMN acts much like the conductor of an orchestra giving timing signals and coordinating activity among the different brain networks and regions and getting the brain ready to react on a conscious level. 
For example, the DMN coordinates the activity in a variety of networks.
Networks that become active during a mental task. 
Networks that are active during memory formation 
and when we pay attention. The salience network, which helps determine what we pay attention to. And the sensory-motor network which integrates the brain’s control of body movements with sensory feedback. 
When your mind is busy with intrinsic activity (Basically directed rest) such as introspection and thinking things through, letting your mind wander, sleeping, and deep thinking, the energy consumed by this messaging and thought building is in the nonconscious level of our mind. 
When we move into an alert conscious state, the energy consumption in the brain increases by 5 percent. In fact, 60 to 80 percent of all energy used by the brain occurs in circuits inside the brain that are unrelated to any external signal. This is all predominat DMN activity and good to know!
Up and away!

We heard there’s new management over at the blue coup.  And he’s ruffling ALL the feathers. We’re enjoying the spectacle.
So we think now is a great time to bring free speech Above The Sun.
