Have you been “blocked” mentally? I have been through blocks which take away my strength trying so hard to recovered my “lost”. The “lost” of a memory, information or idea, required in a specific moment. The thought of being dumb or ill comes to the mind making worst the “blocking”. Cognitive science, explains kind of well what is going on in our brains.
The “blocking” is a natural system which the mind is processing. Yeap! Just like our computers. The input is there somewhere…and I don’t know about others but…when I get it…I assure you it is in another place. The bathroom is my inspiration or released moment I guess. When the water is running by my head or back…the precise forgotten “thing” arises like “peak a boo”.
Parents, teachers and health professionals even forget that being blocked has many reasons not necessarily means irresponsibility or not motivated or illness. Our individuality makes it difficult to determine the cause of the blocking. The pessimist thought of Alzheimer's disease takes a first place. Than the optimist mind will search for whatever to deal with this normal (in many cases) process.
Dr. Jordi Mas, made research in cognitive science to human behavior. In his Theory of Silence Reorganization; he explains the "block" as interval. And that the interval is an event. In that moment is where the reorganization takes place...silent lessons learned. Wow!!!! I loved when I read that. Deep! It consoled my many years thinking I had something going wrong. It also helped me understand children around me.
Life is worth living
We are simple complex humans. A body to take care, a mind a soul to nourish and a spirit that keeps us update with God. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law” (Galatians 5:22-23).
Life is worth living even when we forget things. Let's have in mind that forgetting is a natural procedure of being alive. "Therefore once more I will astound these people with wonder upon wonder; the wisdom of the wise will perish, the intelligence of the intelligent will vanish.” (Isaiah 29:14).
Blessings to all!
