A revolution in science has recently revealed that the adult brain remains open to change throughout the lifespan.
The simple truth is that how we focus our attention, how we intentionally direct the flow of energy and information through our neural circuits, can directly alter the brain’s activity and its structure. The key is to know the steps toward using our awareness in ways that promote well-being
Our relationships with one another are not a casual part of our lives; they are fundamental to how our minds function and are an essential aspect of brain health.
This means that the way we communicate alters the very circuitry of our brain, especially in ways that help keep our lives in balance.
Science further verifies that when we cultivate compassion and mindful awareness in our lives—when we let go of judgments and attend fully to the present—we are harnessing the social circuits of the brain to enable us to transform even our relationship with our own self.
Reasonable working hypothesis is that the mind is what the brain does.
What flows through your mind sculpts your brain. Thus, you can use your mind to change your brain for the better.
All that information is what we define broadly as the mind, most of which is forever outside your awareness. The “mind” includes the signals that regulate the stress response, the knowledge of how to ride a bike, personality tendencies, hopes and dreams, and the meaning of the words you’re reading here.
Your mind is made by your brain, body, natural world, and human culture—as well as by the mind itself.
Like science, Buddhism encourages people to take nothing on faith alone and does not require a belief in God. It also has a detailed model of the mind that translates well to psychology and neurology
One of the greatest remaining scientific questions: What is the relationship between the mind and the brain, especially regarding conscious experience?
Virtue, mindfulness, and wisdom are supported by the three fundamental functions of the brain: regulation, learning, and selection
When you set out on the path of awakening, you begin wherever you are. It takes time to become what we already are.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
