Rewiring

As we know the body, mind, universe are all interconnected. Rewiring the mind is the most useful technique in Dharma.
Some start with the heart eg Sufism.
Some with the body eg Hatha Yoga.
Some with the Universe eg. Kabbalah.

In a sense, as simians, we are not configured in an optimum way but randomly put together by karma, evolution, chance and OM IC ARE ON viral manifests etc

    I think the mind is the place to begin. Insight into what is wholesome and beneficial, and what is not is a good starter which makes you stop feeding a lot of negative impulses.

    The 4NT & 8FP are this simian's bananas.

    As @how already mentioned, by studying the 4NTs, and at every opportunity PUT INTO PRACTICE ...after a while the Jackeline of all trades (master of all) "Awareness" will use its electrical skills to gradually start to rewire the neuropathways (out with the old and in with the new)...and in doing so, this vibrating bundle of energy flux which BTW is held together by karmic glue, aka the psycho-physical phenomenon called the self, will flow more smoothly...

    Thus have I heard Neurons that fire together wire together better...

    You could say that mental rewiring is the objective of practice, as much as it is a technique.

    To that end, mindfulness is a broadly useful tool to reach that objective. The 4NT are in fact pointing to mindfulness - mindfulness of suffering, of the arising of suffering, of its cessation, of the path to get there. Mindfulness focused on one objective.

    An enlightened mind is a rewired mind, you think?

    Agreed.
    Some good pointers from everyone.

    The mind responds well to techniques. For example I am burning lemon grass essential oil in an oil burner at the moment. Sounds very new agey but …

    Promotes mindfulness: Lemongrass is a good oil for meditation as it clears the mind, aids concentration, and promotes a feeling of centeredness.

  • Our first evolutionary (most primitive sense gate) is smell. This is one of the quickest ways to rewire/change the mood of the human monk monkey.

    Just for example:

    pure essential oils can:

    • sandalwood = increase concentration/focus
    • citrus based = lift the spirit/mood
    • eucalyptus/tea tree = aid breathing

    and so on …

  • Sometimes wires are not the only means of interior communication

    … wifi was developed by surprising historical wireless work. Just a side circuit.

    We may find wires are not required and many preprogrammed networks are not needed or counterproductive.

    In a sense we have to disconnect, allowing lesser fusings.

    New wiring carries our current destinations. We may have bells and tangles, circuit breakers and sparks.
