INSTRUCTIONS for Creating Your Definite Chief Aim
Follow this format and write your own Definite Chief Aim and revise it as you are inspired to do - you can revise it from time to time as you wish, but try not to be indecisive. Read the statement out loud every morning when you get up and every night right before you go to bed. Keep this private and do not share this with other people. You will be working with your subconscious mind and it is also helpful to create a Treasure Map of images that represent your Definite Chief Aim.

1. Look at the People You Know

Meditation Found To Increase Brain Size

4 10 2006

By William J. Cromie

People who meditate grow bigger brains than those who don’t. Researchers at Harvard, Yale, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have found the first evidence that meditation can alter the physical structure of our brains. Brain scans they conducted reveal that experienced meditators boasted increased thickness in parts of the brain that deal with attention and processing sensory input.

In one area of gray matter, the thickening turns out to be more pronounced in older than in younger people. That’s intriguing because those sections of the human cortex, or thinking cap, normally get thinner as we age.

“Our data suggest that meditation practice can promote cortical plasticity in adults in areas important for cognitive and emotional processing and well-being,” says Sara Lazar, leader of the study and a psychologist at Harvard Medical School. “These findings are consistent with other studies that demonstrated increased thickness of music areas in the brains of musicians, and visual and motor areas in the brains of jugglers. In other words, the structure of an adult brain can change in response to repeated practice.”

Why Learn to Meditate

3 10 2006

The purpose of meditation is to make our mind calm and peaceful. If our mind is peaceful, we will be free from worries and mental discomfort, and so we will experience true happiness; but if our mind is not peaceful, we will find it very difficult to be happy, even if we are living in the very best conditions. If we train in meditation, our mind will gradually become more and more peaceful, and we will experience a purer and purer form of happiness. Eventually, we will be able to stay happy all the time, even in the most difficult circumstances.

Usually we find it difficult to control our mind. It seems as if our mind is like a balloon in the wind - blown here and there by external circumstances. If things go well, our mind is happy, but if they go badly, it immediately becomes unhappy. For example, Read the rest of this entry »

The Three Most Powerful Principles I Have Learned from Millionaires

2 10 2006

By Dr. Robert Anthony

Over the years I have had the privilege to spend time with some very financially and spiritually enlightened people.

As a result, my personal life and the way I do business has changed…

In listening to these people talk and observing how they handle their personal and business lives, three very distinct and powerful traits came to my attention.

I believe if all these three traits were applied to your life, they would make such a dramatic change, that in a short time all the things you desire would show up in your life…including as much money as you desire.

The Art of Manifestation

2 10 2006

by John Gaydon

There are times in life when we wish to create something. Perhaps it is a new relationship, car, house, or a special holiday. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a formula which works. A systematic way to create in life that which we desire. This is not only possible, but I have used this formula many times and it works really well. Take the manifestation of our current place of residence.

Eleven years ago, Linda and I were married. We had a wonderful wedding at Sublime Point Lookout in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, Australia. There was torrential rain all day and the just before sunset the sun burst forth creating a powerful energy. There were spirits at work that day, and everything went like clockwork. The staff at our reception place commented that they had never seen an event run so smoothly. Everything was provided, including a cottage with a Hot Tub for our wedding night.

How To Choose The Right Goals To Focus On

2 10 2006

By Christos Varsamis

Sometimes setting goals alone is not the only problem that you must face. Sometimes, choosing the right goals to begin with is harder.

Basically, you can choose to work any goal that you feel is necessary for your health, stability and happiness.

Goal setting is nothing more than a formal process for personal planning. By setting goals on a routine basis you decide what you want to achieve, and then move in a step-by-step manner towards the achievement of these goals.

The process of setting goals and targets allows you to choose where you want to go in life. By knowing exactly what you want to achieve, you know what you have to concentrate on to do it. You also know what nothing more than a distraction is.

If You Don’t Run, You Rust

1 10 2006

by Travis Wright

If you leave a car sitting for too long, it will rust. If you remain inactive in any area of your life, you too, will start to decay. If you don’t consistently read and use your mind, your brain’s synapses will begin to atrophy, and the connections will be lost forever. If you no longer consistently exercise, you body will begin to die. Use it or lose it.

I need a Big Weekend.
Kick up the Dust.
Yeah, a Big Weekend.
If you don’t run, you rust.
- Tom Petty, Highway Companion

The line, ‘If you don’t run, you rust’, on the song “Big Weekend”, stuck out in my mind and made me ponder these things while driving back from a family reunion this weekend.
