The Three Brains that Allow Us to Go from Thinking to Doing to Being
Joe Dispenza, D.C. has lectured in 24 countries on six continents, educating people about the role and function of the human brain. He has taught thousands of people how to reprogram their thinking through scientifically proven neuro-physiologic principles.

The Controlled Psychophysical Self-Regulation Process – Why Meditation Works
The following note is from Eckhart Tolle
Almost two thousand years ago, the philosopher Plutarch wrote:
“Most people bypass what is good and refreshing in their lives, and habitually focus on the unpleasant, bad elements.”
How easily all our attention can get absorbed by our “problems”. Thinking and talking about them strengthens a false sense of self. And so we miss the good in our lives. Where’s the good? It’s where Life is: in the present moment. It’s in the clouds and vast spaciousness of the sky, the air you breathe, the life-giving light and warmth of the sun, the silence of the night. It’s in a small act of kindness given or received. It’s in the sound of the rain, the intense aliveness of a flower….the same aliveness that you can also feel inside your body.
Another word for acknowledging the good in your life is – gratitude.
And: what you focus your attention on, grows.
