Regular breathing puts the body in a harmonious condition; and it is then easier to reach the mind… Simple breathing is all that is necessary in that line… In this way we get control of the body, and then we begin to feel the finer working of the body, the finer and more interior, and so on till we reach the mind… Thus, the mind brought under control.

Education is not filling the mind with a lot of facts. Perfecting the instrument and getting complete mastery of my own mind[is the ideal of education]. If I want to concentrate my mind upon a point, it goes there, and the moment I call, it is free[again].
It is only when the mind is very calm and collected that the whole of its energy is spent in doing good work. And if you read the lives of the great workers which the world has produced, you will find that they were wonderfully calm men.
Concentration is the essence of all knowledge; nothing can be done without it. Ninety percent of thought force is wasted by the ordinary human being, and therefore he is constantly committing blunders; the trained man or mind never makes a mistake.
How are we to know that the mind has become concentrated? Because the idea of time will vanish. The more time passes unnoticed, the more concentrated we are. In common life, we see that when we are interested in a book we do not note the time at all, and when we leave the book, we are often surpr...

Our Higher Mind and the Primitive Mind always have a tug-of-war like conflict. The degree of the conflict can be placed in a spectrum, which is called a Psych Spectrum.
If the Higher mind is in control, we are placed higher in the Psych Spectrum and have the Primitive Mind under check.
The process of breathing creates a link between the physical body and the mind. The effects of yogic breathing techniques are quite different from the usual breathing, as it stimulates the unconscious mind also.
Pranayama in itself comes under physical activity but its effect is beyond phys...
Breathing is the only autonomic system we can wrest control of.

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.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
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!
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.
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!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
