What The Book Talks About

Some few lessons that you will learn from this book include:

A memory without the emotional charge is called wisdom.

Once you change your internal state, you don’t need the external world to provide you with a reason to feel joy, gratitude, appreciation, or any other elevated emotion?

We should never wait for science to give us permission to do the uncommon; if we do, then we are turning science into another religion.

Meditating is also a means for you to move beyond your analytical mind so that you can access your subconscious mind. That’s crucial, since the subconscious is where all your bad habits and behaviors that you want to change reside.

If you want a new outcome, you will have to break the habit of being yourself, and reinvent a new self.

Psychologists tell us that by the time we’re in our mid-30s, our identity or personality will be completely formed. This means that for those of us over 35, we have memorized a select set of behaviors, attitudes, beliefs, emotional reactions, habits, skills, associative memories, conditioned responses, and perceptions that are now subconsciously programmed within us.

Those programs are running us, because the body has become the mind. This means that we will think the same thoughts, feel the same feelings, react in identical ways, behave in the same manner, believe the same dogmas, and perceive reality the same ways.

About 95 percent of who we are by midlife1 is a series of subconscious programs that have become automatic—driving a car, brushing our teeth, overeating when we’re stressed, worrying about our future, judging our friends, complaining about our lives, blaming our parents, not believing in ourselves, and insisting on being chronically unhappy, just to name a few.

When feelings become the means of thinking, or if we cannot think greater than how we feel, we can never change. To change is to think greater than how we feel. To change is to act greater than the familiar feelings of the memorized self.

To be empowered—to be free, to be unlimited, to be creative, to be genius, to be divine—that is who you are…. Once you feel this way, memorize this feeling; remember this feeling. This is who you really are.

The latest research supports the notion that we have a natural ability to change the brain and body by thought alone, so that it looks biologically like some future event has already happened.

Because you can make thought more real than anything else, you can change who you are from brain cell to gene, given the right understanding.

If we want to change some aspect of our reality, we have to think, feel, and act in new ways; we have to “be” different in terms of our responses to experiences. We have to “become” someone else. We have to create a new state of mind … we need to observe a new outcome with that new mind.

Meditation opens the door between the conscious and subconscious minds. We meditate to enter the operating system of the subconscious, where all of those unwanted habits and behaviors reside, and change them to more productive modes to support us in our lives.

When you think from your past memories, you can only create past experiences. As all of the “knowns” in your life cause your brain to think and feel in familiar ways, thus creating knowable outcomes, you continually reaffirm your life as you know it.

And since your brain is equal to your environment, then each morning, your senses plug you into the same reality and initiate the same stream of consciousness.

You have to break the habit of being yourself and reinvent a new self; lose your mind and create a new one; prune synaptic connections and nurture new ones; unmemorize past emotions and recondition the body to a new mind and emotions; and let go of the past and create a new future.

Best Place to Buy The Book

The place I encourage you to get the book from is on Amazon. It is my personal favorite online store and it comes in handy when you want to do more shopping other than just the book. So if you were planning to buy more stuff online in addition to the book, I would say Amazon is your best bet.

There is also a summary book of this book that cuts across the book and gives you the gist and weighty points you would want to use to make change in your life.  It is also on Amazon and is something I recommend if you are those people who like having most moving points somewhere for constant reference.

My Thoughts
The science behind how our brains work is so valuable. This book shows us how we can improve our life by being conscious of our thoughts and emotions and the affects on our brain and psyche.

However , i think the book is really dense,take your time as you read it.

Feel free to leave in your comments as well
as your questions.

I hope you found this review useful to you.
