AN INGENIOUS WAY SHARED BY MASTER JUN HONG LU ON HOW TO DEAL WITH DIFFICULT SITUATIONS BY COOLING OFF FOR SIX (6) SECONDS
Master Jun Hong Lu: Based on research done by psychologists, before information enters into the consciousness of the brain and is stored as knowledge / experiences in our brain, it will have to be first processed by the part of human brain that controls our emotions, which is among the most ancient of human brain’s limbic systems.
Whenever we encounter a situation, the brain’s limbic system will be the first to react. This explains why we develop feelings like fear, anger, and joy towards the situation. Thus, the information acquired from the situation will not reach our conscious mind until six seconds later. From there, our brain will process the information and translate it into our knowledge of the situation. Essentially, impulsiveness is the act of a primitive person while careful deliberation is the act of a civilized person.
Therefore, in today’s world, many of us have committed crimes and did something awfully detrimental to our family in a moment of impulse. To help us break away from impulsiveness, we have to make use of our civilized sense of rationality.
The fact is, whenever you encounter a situation, you should cool down for six seconds. At times when you are unable to curb your temper and are tempted to resort to violence, you have to exercise control, take a few deep breaths for six seconds, recite Xiao Zai Ji Xiang Shen Zhou once, and you will free yourself from yet another worry and difficulty.< Words of Wisdom
