    I have learned a long time ago that our mind is the cause of liberation or bondage. How do I use my mind is in my hand. If I dwell on negative thoughts negative feelings and actions I get negative outcomes. Research studies done by positive psychologists show how we create our own happiness or misery by what we think and what choices we make. We can reinforce our brain's negative bias by thinking negatively. It is up to us to decide how to use our mind. The inner light of wisdom os pure consciousness helps us to make positive changes in our mind and that way rewiring our brain. And this way we are creating positive or constructive brain's habitual patterns.

    It is helpful to have information about how the application of positive psychology creates positive changes in our brain and in our personal behavior and our social transactions. Transformation takes place when we apply the information in our actions.I know what I need to do to preserve and enhance my physical health. It is hard to break the harmful habitual patterns such as what to eat, when to sleep, and when to do physical exercise. Practicing self-discipline has helped me to walk on the healthy path.

    Knowing what is good and what is helpful and doing what is good and what is helpful has been very helpful to me. Living mindfully is my way of retraining my brain. I want to be master of my brain and not its slave. This is challenging and I love it. I am with the author Leah Perlman when he says, " I'm voting with my attention."
