The Biological Clock

The word biological would suggest to me that there is a logic in nature that, like a clock, has a rhythm and a pace that is regular and timely. If that is so then how is life meant to be lived? Are we to live like a clock, watching every minute or second that ticks? Are we to regard ourselves as machines, that like a clock, keep ticking over irrespective of how we live? No but like a clock that has a maker who regulates it and sets the time, so we have a Maker who has made our biological clock to correspond with the sun and planetary clock but more importantly to mind and spirit.

We are not machines. Nor is the biological clock a machine. The biological clock is not regulated or set like a timepiece but has a psychosomatic nature. It cannot be separated from the mind for it is a mind related substance. The proof of that is something you can test for yourself at any time and be fully convinced that the body is not a machine.

If you know what a thing is then you also know what a thing isn’t. This is just as true of the biological clock as it is of a timepiece. Both have things in common but they are very different from each other. A timepiece has no emotions, no thoughts and no will to determine its own time or being. Not so the biological clock. Check this out for yourself. When you feel embarrassed do you not blush? What is blushing but the dilation of tiny blood capillaries in your skin that respond to the feeling of embarrassment. When you are afraid does not your heart beat faster? Check it out and you will see that it does. Have you ever had a lump in your throat or a headache? Every cell of your body is responsive to your mind automatically through what is called the autonomic nervous system. Through the autonomic nervous system your thoughts and emotions can actually produce biological and psychological disorders. FULL POST

What Is ADHD?

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affects 11% of children between the ages of four and seventeen in the U.S. These children’s symptoms include having trouble paying attention in school and difficulty in controlling hyperactive behavior.
