Wisdom to Increase Mind Power

Descartes, the great philosopher, once said, “I think, therefore I am.” What he means is that your mind makes you become who and what you are right now. In other words, your thoughts are the materials with which you weave the fabric of your life. Therefore, it is important to know how to increase your mind power through human wisdom

Knowledge is different from wisdom in that the acquisition of knowledge does not necessarily increase your wisdom.

I have just published the 2nd edition of The Book of Life and Living. This 200-page book explains in detail how we can use the ancient wisdom of Tao (taken from Tao Te Ching, an ancient classic on human wisdom, written by the ancient Chinese sage Lao Tzu).

True wisdom is the ability to penetrate deeply into the meaning behind superficial knowledge, to integrate related thoughts, facts, and experiences into a structural framework that reveals a deeper, more synthesized meaning than what an ordinary person perceives. Wisdom is internal; it comes from the inner self.

Focusing on so-called goals in life, many of us lose our true selves in the pursuit of our dreams. If you are one of them, you must re-direct your life. If you wish to re-discover your "new" self, or never want to go back to your "old" life, THE BOOK OF LIFE AND LIVING is right for you.

Albert Einstein once said: "A human being is part of the whole called by us 'universe,' a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts, and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison . . . . "

One of the objectives of THE BOOK OF LIFE AND LIVING is to free yourself from the self-imprisonment of self-delusions created by your self-consciousness, as pointed out by Albert Einstein. This book not only explains in simple terms and plain language how you may unconsciously create your self-limiting thoughts that prevent you from truly understanding who you are and what you really want from life, but also shows you how to create a substantially new manner of thinking to increase mind power through the integration of ancient wisdom, conventional wisdom, and Biblical wisdom.  It is a holistic approach to empowering the mind with wisdom.

Meditation to Cope with Grief and Tragedy

During the mysterious disappearance of Flight 370 of Malaysia Airline jet in March 2014, Malaysia Airlines offered to fly K.S. Narendran to Kuala Lumpur because his wife, Chandrika Sharma, was one of the 239 people aboard the passenger jet

But Narendran declined. He didn't see any point to leaving India when there was no information. He preferred to stay at home in the south Indian city of Chennai, surrounded by his family and friends.

We all have our different ways of coping with grief and tragedy. Others who had relatives on Flight 370 have publicly expressed their anger and frustration as the days marched on with few clues about what happened to Flight 370. For example, two mothers wailed at a press briefing room in Kuala Lumpur; their grief echoed around the world on television sets and on the Internet

Narendran said he has drawn strength from his recent experience with an ancient technique of meditation in India that enabled him to see things as they really are, and not as they appear to be.

According to Narendran, meditation has taught him the essential message of transience and impermanence, letting him see everything in perspective. More importantly, meditation allows him to practice being in the "present," however difficult it may be. In coping with grief and tragedy, it is important to know how to manage "the menace of an overworked imagination”

Generally, there are different stages for an individual to go through with the pains of grief and bereavement: denial; anger; bargain; depression; acceptance. At first one may look at the grief with disbelief; may become angry with the thought of “why me?”; may even bargain with a Higher Power to reverse the situation; may become depressed; and finally may have to accept the reality of grief and tragedy.

Narendran chose to use meditation to cope with his grief and tragedy. There is much wisdom in that choice and decision. Meditation not only relaxes the mind, but also enables the individual to stay in the present moment, and thus seeing things as they really are. That explains why Narendran seems very composed despite the tragedy of losing his wife. Meditation has been used since time memorial to heal the body, the mind, and the soul.
Life is never a bed of roses. Even if it is, there are thorns, and somehow we all have to live with them. Given that everything is this world is impermanent, grief and sorrow is inevitable. But don’t let your grief and tragedy make you live as if nothing is a miracle. Protracted grief and sorrow may lead to depression and negative thoughts that may haunt you for the rest of your life. Use your mind through mediation to help you cope with grief and tragedy that may come your way on your life journey.

Improve Memory Skills for Quality Living

As you continue to age, don’t let your memory decline affect your quality living. Improving memory skills can maintain and sustain quality living.
Your mind holds the key to the wellness of your whole being. You are the sum of your thoughts, and your mind is the creator and interpreter of your thoughts. So, for quality living, improving memory skills to boost your mind power is important. To do that, you need to keep your brain active and in good shape. Improving memory skills can keep your brain in optimum conditions for quality living.
Improving memory skills means sharpening your awareness of and attention to your senses, such as sight, sound, smell, and touch. How your brain collects, stores, and processes information holds the key to a powerful memory. If you sharpen your senses, you also sharpen your brain power. Memory is no more than a learning skill, which has little to do with aging. As long as your cognitive skills are functional, improving memory can be achieved through acquiring memory skills.
1. Perform any activity that is out of the ordinary, that is, something that you normally do not do. For example, learning a new musical instrument not only demands reading music notes, concentration and mental focus, as well as coordination of hands and fingers, but also involves general sight, sound, and touch. Alternatively, you can do small tasks using your non-dominant hand, such as writing your name with your left hand, if you are right-handed. According to Professor C. Katz Lawrence of Duke University, performing several non-dominant-hand tasks in your everyday life will enable you to tap into a certain part of your brain you seldom use, as well as to force your brain to concentrate on doing something that you would normally breeze through. Genius Brain Power keeps your brain fit and enhances mind power for quality living..
2. Improving memory skills can be achieved through relaxation to remove undue stress and to rejuvenate brain cells for optimum performance. Deep Zen Meditation is the effortless way to recoup your mind power through total calm and peace of mind, which are the ingredients of quality living.
3. Aromatherapy activates your mind and harnesses its potentials through the scents of herbs, such as basil and rosemary. Research shows that inhaling these scents increases beta waves that heighten mind power through the awareness of the brain. For hundreds of years, healers from all over the world have applied aromatherapy to stimulate the nervous system to boost mind power or improve memory skills.
4. Improve your mind power with your green thumbs. Gardening is a good exercise for the brain: knowing the plant names and their growth characteristics, the soil conditions, and abstract spatial thinking, among others. Why don’t you start your own Organic Food Garden to enhance both your physical and brain health?
If you wish to increase your mind power through improving memory skills, you can. If there is a will, there is a way. Don’t let forgetfulness get you down as you get older! Your brain has over 100 trillion cells, and you use only five to ten percent of them. So, the more connections you can make between your brain cells through seeing, hearing, touching, and smelling, the better and more efficient your brain becomes in collecting, storing, and processing information. Aging cannot slow down the brain, but non-doing will. Always increase memory skills for quality living.

Breathing to Increase Mind Power


According to Buddha, we all have a "monkey mind" which is forever riddled with anxiety and worry. The human mind has a tendency to shuffle between the past and the future, except the present, which is the time that is real, and that is why it is called “present”—a   a gift in itself. Most of us not only plan for the future, but also worry about its outcome. Accordingly, we often go back to the past to look for clues to help us fulfill our hopes and expectations in the future, as well as to avoid errors and mistakes made in the past. In the process, we not only create undue stress for ourselves but also deprive ourselves the opportunity to live in the present mind. A mind that stays in the present moment is calm and relaxed. Living in the present is moment-to-moment mindfulness of breathing. Mindfulness of breaths increases mind power.

Unfortunately, most of us don’t live in the present moment, especially in this age of speed and technology. With so many daily chores and life goals to accomplish, we find little time for ourselves, let alone time to remain in the present moment. Even if we are fortunate enough to have some time for ourselves, we may spend it to go online or to watch our favorite TV programs. Living in the present moment is a gift that is often ignored and rarely appreciated.

But things don’t have like that. We can always find time to do little things that enable us to let our minds stay in the present moment. Learn to focus your breaths on the present moment, which is no more than awareness or mindfulness of your breaths. Focusing your breaths on the present moment makes you become more aware of what is happening around you at that present moment, thereby instrumental in releasing stress from your body and mind, as well as enhancing your clarity of mind. 

Practice diaphragm breathing to help your mind stay in the present moment. Diaphragm breathing is using your diaphragm muscle -- muscles between your lower lungs and your abdomen -- to fill your lungs with life-giving oxygen, and to push toxic carbon dioxide from your lungs to achieve the complete breath. Diaphragm breathing is achieved through your nose, and not your mouth. Practice diaphragm breathing by placing one hand over your chest, and the other over your diaphragm muscles: you should feel the hand over your chest not moving, while that over the abdomen moving up and down as you inhale and exhale. Diaphragm breathing gives you complete breaths. For thousands of years, Chinese physicians have believed that an individual is given only a certain number of breaths during his or her lifespan. If the breaths are shorter, that individual then has a shorter lifespan. Therefore, the key to longevity and anti-aging is to prolong the breaths. Breathing right makes you live longer and look younger.

When you focus your mind on your breaths, you breathe better. Remember, your breaths are vital to your health, especially your brain health because your complete breaths bring more oxygen to your brain cells. Mindfulness of breaths plays a pivotal part in meditation, which is critically important to your mind power. 

Read my most recent book publication: As If Everything Is A Miracle. Learn to rethink your mind through your breaths to live your life as if everything is a miracle.

Also, learn Chinese exercises, such as Qi Gong and Tai Chi to enhance your breaths to increase your mind power.

The Miracle of In the Now

Mindfulness holds the key to the art of living well. Why do we need to live well? Because we all want to be happy. Without happiness, living is meaningless and life is purposeless. The goal in the art of living well is to activate happiness in our lives through our minds. The human mind is powerful in that it can make heaven out of hell, or hell out of heaven. It's all in our minds; they can be our friends, or our enemies. 

The essence of happiness is freedom -- not freedom in getting what we want out of life, especially our material wants, but freedom from our self-imposed bondage that prevents us from enjoying the happiness that is within each one of us. In many ways, we are like the proverbial bird that will not leave its self-imposed cage even when the cage door is opened. To illustrate, each of us has set certain conditions in our minds that dictate how we look at our happiness. These pre-set conditions have become the criteria for our happiness. If our marital partners do not meet our conditions or expectations to have those conditions fulfilled, we file a divorce; in other words, our love is conditional. We have no real freedom if we keep on thinking about something in our minds, such as the new car we want to get; our happiness becomes conditional on getting what we want.

The problem with conditional happiness is that we have knowingly or unknowingly created energy that is forever pushing us forward. It is like a carrot-stick in front of us, forever unreachable. Even when something becomes attainable, we create another carrot-stick, and yet another one. Isn't this the kind of life most of us are living? We have created one life goal after another, and our minds have become compulsive. In truth, we are unable to slow down because we are living in the past and in the future, but not in the now

Our human experiences are perceived by our bodies through our five senses (seeing, smelling, hearing, tasting, touching), which are then stored in our subconscious minds in the form of feelings, emotions, and memories. Our subconscious minds tell us what to do and what decisions to make through our conscious minds. Living in the past means we keep on going back to the past to find out what to do in the future. Our minds predict our futures in the form of desires and expectations, and that is how we live in the future. But the past was gone, and is no longer real; the future is uncertain and unreal, except in our minds. 

Only the present moment or the now is real. It is a gift, and that's why it is called "present." But many of us are unaware of it, let alone appreciative of the now. Are you thankful that you are breathing right now? Only when a person is drowning, gasping for air, or having difficulty in breathing due to some lung disease, will that person be mindful of breaths. 

Mindfulness is paying attention to what is happening right now. It can work miracles. First of all, mindfulness relaxes your mind because it stops the mind from thinking -- at least temporarily. Mindfulness enables you to perceive the truths or separate the truths from the half-truths through clarity of mind and thinking. Mindfulness lets you appreciate what is happening right now, instead of going back to the past or worrying about the future. Only with mindfulness can you become the person you are meant to be, and not the person you wish you were. Without mindfulness, there is no concentration, and without concentration, there is no wisdom that plays a pivotal part in your success in anything you wish to accomplish in life. Don't deny yourself the miracle of the now, and pursue your life in the past or the future.

As If Everything Is A MiracleMy book recently published explains in detail how you can "rethink" your mind to make it powerful and fully functional to work to your advantage. Albert Einstein once said that thinking is hard and that is why so people do it. But to live in this world as if everything is a miracle, you need to know "how to think" in order not to live as if nothing is a miracle. Learn how the mind works. This 125-page book is available in paperback or the kindle edition for immediate download ($3.49). .

Believe In Mind Power As If Everything Is A Miracle

Your brain is the most powerful organ in your body: it controls what you do in the physical world. 

Your body perceives all sensations and experiences in the physical world through its five senses. Your mind interprets and records them in your subconscious mind, which controls your conscious mind. You conscious mind screens and filters all your mental input, while your subconscious mind remembers everything indiscriminately and stores in the back of your mind. When your conscious mind makes your daily life choices and decisions, it is actually your subconscious mind that controls your thinking thoughts, resulting in your actions, non-actions, and reactions of your body in the physical world. Therefore, your subconscious mind holds your mind power. If you can "rethink" your mind, you can control your thoughts in your conscious mind through empowering your subconscious mind. Believe in mind power as if everything is a miracle.


My recent book publication As If Everything Is A Miracle explains in detail how you can "rethink" your mind to make it powerful and fully functional to work to your advantage. Albert Einstein once said that thinking is hard and that is why so people do it. But to live in this world as if everything is a miracle, you need to know "how to think" in order not to live as if nothing is a miracle. 

The important role of mind power cannot be overstated. Be that as it may, the mind power may easily be compromised by toxins from the body. As a result of the toxic contamination from the body in the physical world, toxic emotions and thoughts may be formed in the mind, leading to toxic memories that may ultimately devastate the mind, given the close body-mind connection. 


A compromised and toxic mind needs to solicit help from the soul, which feeds the mind with spirituality that provides connection and interconnection with others through empathy and compassion, gratitude and generosity, as well as love and forgiveness. The body, the mind, and the soul—all play a pivotal role in wisdom in contemporary living. It is their “alignment” with one another for balance and harmony in the being of an individual that holds the key to living in wisdom in this day and age. This 125-page book is available in paperback or the kindle edition for immediate download ($3.49). .

How Active Is Your Brain?

Brain activities are critical to your mental health and your overall well-being. Your brain is one of the most important of your body organs because it controls and directs your thinking, which results in your life choices and decisions, leading to your actions and reactions in your life experiences. Your brain is the source of your thoughts, the materials with which you weave the fabric of your life and being. The importance of the brain is never an overstatement.

The brain is just like the rest of your body: it requires both tender love and care in the form of rest and activities to keep it in optimum functioning. You need to exercise your body to avoid muscle atrophy. while you also need to give it sufficient rest to recover and rejuvenate. Likewise, your brain needs activities, as well as a meaningful break, to hence its mental power.

What are brain activities?

Brain activities are metal processes that activate the brain cells in terms of association, cognition, connection, communication, and interpretation. It is a myth that mental functions decline with age. The decline is probably due to disuse and inactivity of the brain. Mental functions can improve at any age with practice.

How active is your brain?

It is not difficult to not think. In fact, thinking is difficult, and that is why, according to Albert Einstein, so few people do it. Your mind can be filled with rambling and compulsive thoughts, such as what you are going to do tomorrow, what dress to wear, what to eat for dinner, what TV program to watch, but your mind is not engaged in activities that really benefit your brain, because your mind is not "thinking.".

In this day and age it is easy to acquire mental disuse, which is inadequate use of the brain. If you spend much of your time before the TV screen, you are not keeping your brain active. As a matter of fact, an average American spends more than 4 hours watching TV, which is the main source of mental disuse.

Keep your brain busy by engaging in activities, such as learning (a skill, a language, a musical instrument), writing (a letter, a journal or a blog), reading (a non-fiction book); doing things that are out of your daily routine. The busier you are in mental activities. the larger your brain cells (neurons) become, making some of your DNA repair more efficient. Mental activities increase your neurotransmitters responsible for communication between your brain cells, leading to better mental processing by your brain. If your brain is active, you have better memory and overall more efficient mental functioning. Your brain cells are just like your body muscles: use them or lose them.

Like your body requiring rest and sleep, your brain needs mental relaxation too in order to maximize its mental functioning. Relax your brain by quieting the mind with daily meditation, which slows down the brain activities. The difference between watching TV and meditation is that the latter puts your brain in different brain-wave patterns that lead to total relaxation, whereas in the former brain is inactive but still working.

The bottom line: keep your brain active to keep your mind and body healthy. Science has attested to the body-mind connection. If your mind is healthy, your body will naturally become healthy too; after all, the mind controls the body.

Mind Secrets Exposed: Learn the art of getting what you want out of life by keeping your mind active. Use state-of-the-art subliminal messages to transform your subconscious mind in order to change your conscious mind to do what needs to be done to keep your mind healthy and functional.

How the Mind Can Help Healing the Body

The mind can help healing the body in many ways.

The body and the mind are interconnected. The body has its innate mechanisms responsible for self-healing, such as the immune system, the liver, the kidneys, and the skin, among others. Unfortunately, a toxic body can compromise the functioning of these systems and organs to bring about natural self-healing.

How can the mind help healing the body?

First of all, the mind can do disservice to the body by thinking toxic or negative thoughts that create toxins in the physical body in the form of choices and decisions of actions, and reactions; for example, choosing junk food, and reacting in anger. Thinking positive thoughts can eliminate body toxins.

If the body is in disharmony and a disease is imminent, it will send out messages to the mind in the form of signs and symptoms. Again, the mind may play a pivotal role in perceiving and deciphering those messages, and taking appropriate actions to stop the onset of the disease. To do this, mindfulness is required, which is essentially the awareness of the mind.  

Your mind ages as much as and as fast as your body does. The good news is that you can use your mind to stop the aging of both your mind and body: just put your mind where your body is! Healing begins when you put the mind where the body is.

Your body is now  right here. But your mind may be elsewhere: your mind may be preoccupied with thoughts of the past in the form of memories, or of the future in the form of desires and expectations. In other words, your mind is rambling and disconnected, although you may be unaware of it. A chaotic mind produces adverse and detrimental biological and chemical changes, such as the production of stress hormones, and the reduction of human growth hormone (HGH), among others, that not only bring about the aging process in both the body and mind, but also make the body vulnerable to disease..

To remedy the situation, put your mind where your body is.

(1) Sit comfortably. Place the back of one hand in the palm of the other, allowing your thumb tips to touch lightly. Rest your hands on your body in line with your lower abdomen.

(2) Breathe mindfully for a minute or two; that is, be aware of your breaths, noticing how you inhale and exhale..

(3) Gently close your eyes. Focus your attention on the flow of your bodily sensations within your awareness, such as the beating of your heart, the tingling and twitching of your muscles, as well as your sense experiences, such as the sounds, smells, and tastes surrounding you.

(4) Meanwhile, thoughts may arise. Release them without any effort or struggle: just let them drift away. If needs be, direct your attention back to your breathing, and again notice your awareness of your physical sensations and experiences.

(5) Continue this process for as long as you like. You will feel the interconnection between your body and mind; it is your conscious awareness of your body that connects your body and mind in a unique way. Essentially, you are putting your mind where your body is in the present moment.

Becoming mindful of your body in the present moment is putting your mind where your body is. This is deep relaxation for both body and mind—the best way to sharpen your mind to help healing of the body and mind.

For more information, visit my web page: How To Meditate.

Mindfulness helps your mind stay in the present moment; this reinforces your awareness of your body, thereby instrumental in helping its healing. You will become more alert to the signs and symptoms of any disease and disorder.  In addition, you will become more aware of your posture, such as maintaining a straight spine, which is the river of life. A straight spine optimizes breathing. Yoga, for example, is an exercise that heightens awareness of the spine in all yogi poses to attain a more centered consciousness. Centeredness in the spine is also instrumental in enhancing spiritual awakening.

101 Yoga Poses: Learn yoga in the comfort of your home with 500+ step-by-step color photos. Use yoga for body awareness, optimal breathing, and good posture.

Mind Secrets Exposed: Learn the art of getting what you want out of life. If you find yourself facing constant frustration from never-ending problems in life, or you feel as though your life is a proverbial treadmill, not going anywhere. Now is the time to take charge of your life. It is all in your subconscious mind that is the real power center of your being and the "headquarters" of your body. Use state-of-the-art subliminal messages to transform your subconscious mind in order to change your conscious mind.

The Mind Power to Quit Quitting

The mind is powerful if you know how to harness its power.

Most recently, it was in CNN news about a guy by the name of Jonathon Walters who lost 200 pounds within a matter of months -- it was a matter of the mind.

Over the years, Jonathon had quit school, college, relationships, and multiple jobs -- quitting led to his weight increase through overeating as a result of his inability to face reality. He weighed 477 pounds, with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and all sorts of health problems. 

Jonathon's father, who died prematurely in his early fifties, once told him: "Quitting is unlike anything else in life. It is only hard the first time you do it. After that it is a habit and almost impossible to break." Quitting had caused his binge-eating, making him obese. He knew he would not live long unless he would quit quitting. He decided to harness his mind power to quit quitting. 

The human mind is powerful. Jonathon never looked back, and he quits quitting; he has exercised, and he has completely changed his diet. To quit quitting has completely changed his life -- has made him lose 200 pounds without surgery. 

Jonathon has taken back control of his life because he quit quitting. You, too, can follow his example, if you know how to control your mind without quitting 

The Secret of Deliberate Creation is a life-changing course by the famous Dr. Robert Anthony, the bestselling author of many mind power books. This groundbreaking course is like driver’s education to change your life through the mind. It’s hand on, and it will make you a better driver  You’ll know everything you need to know to get from point A to point B faster than the 'walking around' or 'bumming a ride' through life you are doing now. After the course, all you’ll need is practice. And just like a car, the practice is actually nothing more than going through your life and driving your new car.

Deliberately create your reality through your mind!

Moment-to-Moment Awareness

It is an erroneous belief that time is often our enemy: with more time, we could do much more to improve our lives. Dissatisfied with life, many of us would strive to do more, to attain more, to be more. But time cannot increase our mind power, nor can it change our lives; time keeps on flowing, just like water, forever flowing downwards. Time is neither our enemy nor our friend. Time does not change; only we do, and it's all in the mind.


Increase our mind power with moment-to-moment awareness, which can change our perspective on life. The human mind is burdened with emotional baggage from the past and worries about the future. Many of us do not see how our past experiences in the form of memories can affect, positively or negatively our current behaviors, choices, decisions, and actions -- the realities of our lives. Only with moment-to-moment awareness can we understand how we may have become slaves to our memories, letting them become our masters controlling our lives.


With emotional baggage from the past and worries about the future, we subconsciously make our minds compulsive; that is, overly preoccupied with past memories and future expectations, such that our minds do not quiet or slow down and do not stay in the present. To illustrate, many of us have many career goals, planning this and that for our families; our minds are forever on the go: we talk on the phone while we are eating, or even driving, and we wish we had more than 24 hours a day to finish our daily chores. 

But with moment-to-moment awareness, you may realize that not going through your children's homework tonight does not mean that they will not go to Harvard some day; even not going to Harvard does not mean that they will not receive a good education. It's all in your mind -- your conditioned mind. Just learn to let go your attachment to time. It is your ego that makes you think you can make the world do your bidding. Given that your ego is focusing on the past and the future, and not the very present moment, your ego is not aware of what is going on in the world right now, therefore, letting your ego decide what is best for you is unwise. That is why moment-to-moment awareness is important because it enables your mind to stay in the present so that it can perceive and understand what is the best for you, what is real and what is unreal. 

With moment-to-moment awareness, you will do, by doing and no more, what you need to do, and you will learn, by going, where you have to go. Life becomes simple and stress-free. It is not easy, but with practice, you can do it. Remember, you always have choice, but you don't have control over the consequence of your choice, nor over what others may or may not do in response to your choice.

Practice meditation to enhance your moment-to-moment awareness. Learn how to think, as Albert Einstein once said: "Thinking is hard; that's why so few people do it.".
