. . . is the discovery that human beings, by changing inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives." William James
They say that we only use 5% of our brain. To become aware of other abilities and capabilities that we have beyond the 5% can expand our thinking and feeling about our self and life. To change negative thinking or feeling into positive takes awareness of our thought/feeling patterns and the awareness that we are actually not our thoughts or feelings. By using our higher consciousness, we become aware that our awareness itself is aware of the thoughts and how we feel, which means through consciousness, we can shift the negative to the positive. In this process, we are able to transform our perception and perspective of life and our self.
