Spiritual Intelligence (Sq): the Symbiotic Relationship Between Spirit and the Brain
Imagine, you're like a little fish in the ocean that swims to the bigger fish and asks, ""Excuse me sir, where is the ocean, and tell me how deep is the ocean?"" The big fish replies, ""Are you kidding! You're in it; keep swI'ming! The little fish is not satisfied with the answer and keeps swI'ming to the next, and to the next, asking the'same old question. What is spirituality? Spirituality is vast, deep, holistic, intensely personal and elusive to our human categories of thinking. Like fish that swim in the ocean, we can only share our experience of swI'ming in the ocean of spirituality, but we do not possess the ocean. The fish did not discover water. We do not know who discovered water, but we're certain it wasn't a fish. Imagine having the'spirit as we all do and wanting to swim in the ocean of spirituality and your brain is not functioning right or you can only swim in the'shallow waters because you have not developed the courage and confidence to swim in deep waters. In his groundbreaking book, Spiritual Intelligence (SQ): The'symbiotic Relationship Between Spirit and the Brain, Charles W. Mark takes high risk of opening the ""Pandora Box"" into the world of history, religion, culture and spirituality. Without discounting the intangible part of us-spirit or the'soul that transcends our brain apparatus, the author seeks to demonstrate that there is nothing like an awareness of spirituality and the ability to use spiritual intelligence without having a thinking, feeling and working brain. While walking a thin line, Charles seeks to demonstrate that the lopsidedness in the world or religion, culture and spirituality might very well come down to the way human species have been using our brain-predominantly left-brain or right-brain. With penetrating insights and pointed anecdotes, Charles seeks to develop a new hermeneutics (interpretation) of spirituality for post-modern culture. The author seeks to demonstrate that science is not he enemy of God but a new way of looking at God. Brain is the new location for seeking this mystery. Written in a simple style, Charles brings both Eastern and Western perspectives into the debate as he'seeks to bring them together in the holistic paradI'm of spirituality. In this you will: --Discover the'spiritual maps that have changed during the generation of Baby Boomers; --Gain insights into how Spiritual Intelligence (SQ) is related to Rational Intelligence (IQ) and Emotional Intelligence (EQ); --Learn how gaining a new perspective on the'study of left-brain and right-brain might help us understand differences and similarities between Eastern and Western paradI'ms and practices of spirituality; --Learn how to re-conceptualize your version and vision of spirituality in light of brain study and findings - a dynamic reconciling of the ""Alphabetic Mind"" with the ""Spiritual Mind;"" --Gain a new perspective on making spirituality into a verb, an activity - left-brain, right-brain and whole brain experience.
