Metaphor connects our human brain with spiritual dimensions.
When we shift from perceiving and knowing with our linear, analytical mind to a spatial, artistic way of knowing based in metaphor, we’re able to access a field of divine intelligence.
This was documented in neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor’s book, My Stroke of Insight.
But because our culture is focused solely on knowing through the analytical (left cerebral hemisphere) we have overlooked metaphor’s potent powers.
Metaphor is powerful and at the core of nearly all dramatic scientific breakthroughs or acts of genius. Celebrated scientists like Niels Bohr, Richard Feynman, and Albert Einstein relied on metaphor to help them make new discoveries.
In fact, discovering the metaphor itself is the act of genius.
That’s true in our personal lives as well.
When we can see the metaphor that’s operating under the surface, our lives change.
Change of any sort depends upon our ability to engage with metaphor. 🌟
