MIND – MEMORY
We have learned about the WILL and the PERCEPTION faculties of the MIND. MEDITATION aids focus, which strengthens the WILL power. Our view, others view and DUALITY are considerations for the faculty of PERCEPTION.
Today we will consider another faculty of the MIND, the MEMORY.
MEMORY is the faculty for retaining and recalling, events, impressions, previous experiences etc. This essentially means all information that we have been exposed to and experienced.
There are three types of MEMORY. These are
- SENSORY MEMORY which is an important part of imagination
- SHORT TERM MEMORY which allows us to remember information for up to about a minute and
- LONG TERM MEMORY where information
- that is important
- related to very strong emotions (good and bad)
SHORT TERM MEMORY is where we make conscious decisions related to our WILL. Stored information will be recalled from the LONG TERM MEMORY into the SHORT TERM MEMORY for decision making.
The picture shows this diagrammatically.
