ACCORDING to the author, who is a Guinness world record holder, everything in this world has been created twice. First it is created and visualised by the ‘third eye’ after which it comes into reality which we see with our physical eye. He adds that inventions took place when the third eye discovered the know-how from its subconscious mind and after several experiments, first mentally and then practically, invented the item in reality. He says, at present we use this power less than one per cent; intellectuals use it up to three per cent, scientists, researchers and analysts utilise it up to 10 per cent. Some exceptional powers, like scientist Albert Einstein, used his power of the third eye up to 17 per cent.
The intellect is a faculty of the soul through which it selects the desired thoughts and emotions. The intellect performs three important functions – visualises, discriminates and then decides. Out of the three, the power to visualise is the most important function of the intellect. The author says that it is because of this that intellect is known as the ‘divine experience’ or the ‘third eye’. A soul with a powerful intellect enjoys the experience of its own choice regardless of external stimuli, whereas a soul with a weak intellect is pushed by strong impressions or habits stored in the subconscious mind. It can also be influenced by moods of the others or by the environment around That is why psychologists says that our subconscious/unconscious mind is very powerful and gets things done automatically. The power of visualisation programmes the subconscious mind and hence the powers of the third eye play a vital role in shaping one’s attitude and ‘altitude’ of personality.
The book comprises two sections – Section 1 is related to self-realisation and understanding of the real concept of human memory system and Section 2 provides interesting techniques for enhancing one’s memory power.
On reading this book, one finds that Chapter 17 is of relevance to youngsters and youth as it suggests ways to memorise things which they may tend to forget. Some external memory aids suggested are:
Some of the basic reasons for forgetting are lack of attention, lack of mental exercise, interferences, repression, shocks and drugs.
Factors that contribute to better memory, according to the author are, strong impressions (when the impression is strong, the memory recall will be that much easier and faster), concentration (develop the habit of reining in your mind when it shifts from one point to another), habit (concentration is a habit and habits are perfected through practice) and interests (law of interest is of paramount importance in concentration and thereby for improved memory; things we are deeply interested in are remembered without conscious effort).
The author suggests exercises for the mind and calls them ‘dynamic neurobics’ for building up the power of retention and recall.
