MIND: Consciousness

If her past were your past, her pain your pain, her level of consciousness your level of consciousness, you would think and act exactly as she does. With this realization comes forgiveness, compassion and peace.

MIND: Shuttered

Your days are numbered.
Use them to throw open the windows of your soul to the sun.
If you do not, the sun will soon set, and you with it.

MIND: Rewire

The human brain is incredible in its capacity to heal and rewire itself.
The human brain can be shaped and trained to be more resilient, calm, compassionate and alert – we can condition ourselves to be successful.
Through mindfulness meditation, we can literally re-wire our brains through new experiences, which modify our neural network and our neural chemistry. Mindfulness also enhances gamma synchrony and improves the function of the human brain.

MIND: Source

When another blames you or hates you, or people voice similar criticisms, go to their souls, penetrate inside and see what sort of people they are. You will realize that there is no need to be racked with anxiety that they should hold any particular opinion about you.
