What Are Moral Values - Scientifically?
In this world full of suffering and struggle, I present you the key which unlocks the doors to success. And in this materialistic world, it won't cost you a single penny. These are the moral values, developed and maintained by your soul. I know that your obvious reaction would be like this,"Hey, what is he talking about? We don't believe in such mythological and atheistic words like 'soul'. We live in 21st century." I am aware that you don't believe in these, but you surely have faith in science.
What Does Science Say About Our Thought Process
Quantum Mechanics, or the Quantum Theory is the most praised, celebrated and important theory of the twentieth century. Without its discovery, we would have still not known what is the structure of an atom, how charged particles behave, what is entanglement and many other answers to the greatest mysteries at that time. Due to Quantum Theory, we succeeded in unlocking their complex truths.
This great theory in the recent years has also reigned in the field of the science of our thought generating process. Heart and soul kind of words are irrelevant and unscientific in quantum theory. Instead, it demonstrates that our brain has, according to mixed states theory of solid matter, three states which simultaneously exist and are 'entangled' or 'correlated' to each other. These work together to create thought and hence command our body to take and do necessary action. These states are the Consciousness or the brain itself, the Subconsciousness and the Conscience. All the three have vital roles in thought generating process. If one looks through a spiritual point of view, the consciousness is same as the brain, the subconsciousness is similar to our heart and the conscience is synonymous to our soul. All your day-to-day chores are the result of your thoughts. And your thoughts are generated by your brain. They are rejected or accepted by your subconsciousness. The soul, or conscience in scientific terms, acts as a guide to the subconsciousness.
So, What are Values and How Does A Person Generates Thoughts?
Today's generation is a pampered one. Their parents fulfill their children's every demand without giving a thought about its result in the coming years. If they do wrong, their parents usually ignore it and leave them. Whenever their child commits a big mistake (not to mention what), instead of making him realize or admit that mistake, they usually prefer to hide it, mould it or blame others like his friends or relatives. But they certainly do not want to expose their child's mistake. The child's subconsciousness assumes it to be right, because their parents, and relatives too, quite surprisingly, are the role model of their subconsciousness. It has been designed to imitate their parents actions. So if they ignore or hide their child's mistake, the children's subconsciousness starts believing that what they did is indeed right. Thus when parents ignore or hide their children's mistakes, it is the beginning of suppression of their conscience. Scientifically, values are the set of assumptions assumed automatically by our subconsciousness without the awareness of our consciousness or the brain. These values can be both negative or positive, depending on what their circumstances are. Negative values give birth to an ample number of troubles. Due to these negative values, your brain and conscience becomes so weak that your subconsciousness becomes a one man army and rejects or accepts thoughts as it wishes. Conscience is an advisor. It can give you advice, but you aren't bound to act accordingly. It is you who has to listen to your conscience. In order to do so, your brain has to be strong enough to be able to command your subconsciousness to obey your conscience. For this you need to prey and meditate.
If We Possess Negative Traits or Values, How to Change Them?
Negative traits or values disrupt or disorder the whole life of a human being. Changing these values is not at all a child's play. Only by meditation and prayer to God.
I don't see God as The Gurus or Devas. But I see him as an inexhaustible source of energy, really. By prayer and meditation we can acquire the energy required to conquer our subconsciousness. There is no hard and fast rule to do meditation. Sit for 5 minutes in a dark room, close your eyes and think of what you have to do today. Try to listen to your conscience and command your subconsciousness to follow it. And your meditation is over. See, it is so simple. But it is the golden egg. If you want to act according to the mentioned steps, it is mandatory for you to practice meditation, otherwise you are free to waste your life in useless thoughts and actions. It is only meditation that will erase your negative traits and implant positive ones.
Meditate to be great, it is yet not too late.
