Detox the Mind to Detox Cancer

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” George Bernard Shaw
Your mind is your being, and your brain is the most important of all your body organs because it controls your whole being. How you think, what you do, how you act and react, and what you do with all your life experiences—they ultimately become not only your memories but also your realities.

Cancer is a complex and multi-faceted disease. It involves not just your body systems, and your body organs, but also your mind. Scientists have attested to the inter-connection between the body and the mind. In other words, a toxic body may lead to a toxic mind, and vice-versa. That is to say, having cancer may adversely affect your mind, how it thinks, how it reacts, and how it makes choices and decisions; by the same token, a toxic mind may not only cause cancer but also undermine the prognosis and the recovery of cancer.

Do you have a toxic mind?

You may have a toxic mind if you have depression, or you are regularly suffering from episodes of unexplained sadness.

You may have a toxic mind if your love relationships are always under stress and strain, and your children are forever rebellious and uncontrollable.

You may have a toxic mind if you are always on the verge of good health and success, but you never quite seem to be getting them.

You may have a toxic mind if you have achieved some accomplishments in your life, and yet you are forever plagued by frustration, and never quite seem to be enjoying the fruits of your success.

You may have a toxic mind if you find yourself struggling with something that you can neither identify nor understand.

You may have a toxic mind if you always feel a long, evil arm stretching from the past, trying to grip hold of you, and pulling you back from reaching your life goals and realizing your dreams.

You must detox your mind in order to increase your mind power not only to avoid cancer but also to cope with cancer if you unfortunately have the disease.

Read my book: Congratulations! You've Got Cancer to find out how to use your mind and body not only to prevent but also to combat the disease.

Wisdom in Changing Mindset

The human mindset is often programmed. As an example, it was reported recently in the news on TV that during this holiday season the focus on shopping has been shifted to “ugly” tee-shirts for men. You wonder why on earth people would buy an “ugly” tee-shirt so that they might have something to talk about. The ugly truth is that many people would indeed fall for that “programmed” mindset for the new fashion trend for men this holiday season.

Truly, the human brain is like a computer program. Your whole being is like the computer hardware with the apparatus of a mind, body, and senses. The lens through which you see yourself, as well as others and the world around, is the software that has been programmed by your thoughts, your past and present experiences, your own expectations as well as those of others. In other words, you and nobody else have programmed your mindset; all these years, you may have been trapped in a constricted sense of self that has prevented you from knowing and being who you really are. The power of the mind is that your thoughts can make you “think” and “believe” you are who and what you are; but nothing could be further from the truth than that. Now, you must harness your mind power to change that conditioned mindset. There is wisdom in changing your mindset so that you will know your true self, and not what you “think”  who and what you now become.

Changing mindset means emptying the mind of conditioned thinking, which is a common characteristic of the contemporary human mind. There was the well-known story of a professor visiting a Zen master to get more information about Zen, an ancient Asian philosophy. The Zen master kept pouring tea into the overflowing teacup held by the professor, who had kept on talking. The moral of the story is that you must have an empty mind first before you can receive new and transformative ideas. Having an empty mind is surrendering your mind to transformation in order that you may think differently—a prerequisite for true human wisdom.

In addition to emptying the mind, you must also give your mind a meaningful break so that it can think with clarity, without which it is sometimes difficult to separate the truths from the half truths or even myths. The human brain is like a computer program, which will stop running when the computer is turned off. Meditation is training your mind to switch off your brain for a while to give your mind some rest and mental attention to sharpen your awareness of what is going on in your mind. Seeing clearly what is going on in the mind, you can then choose to ignore or to act upon what you are seeing through your mind. Meditation is the most effective way to achieve clarity of mind.

I have just published my book entitled Be A Better and Happier You With Tao Wisdom, which is based on the profound wisdom of Lao Tzu, an ancient sage from China, who emphasized the importance of knowing one’s true self through reverse thinking, that is, not only thinking out of the box, but creating one’s own box of thinking. Lao Tzu was the author of the immortal classic “Tao Te Ching” on human wisdom; this book has been extensively translated worldwide due to its simple but intriguing thoughts on human wisdom.
 
The wisdom of Tao begins with the power of intent in your mind to know and to learn more about your true “self.” Human wisdom begins with knowing the self: understand how and why it reacts with everyone and everything around. According to Lao Tzu, the absence of the ego-self is the turning point, where you may begin to embark on a different life journey with a different mission. Your “pre-conditioned” mind thus begins the journey of “reverse thinking” which will ultimately transform your life, making you become a better and happier individual.

Part One of my book explains the how to attain true human wisdom, without which it is almost impossible to perceive the innate human goodness in self, as well as in others. If you are not a loving and lovable person, you may never find genuine human happiness.

Part Two is the complete translation of the 81 short chapters of Lao Tzu's "Tao Te Ching" in simple English for readers to better understand the complex and controversial wisdom of “Tao Te Ching.”

Part Three highlights the essentials of Tao wisdom, and shows how it can be applied to contemporary living so that you may become a loving and happy individual.

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.
The Unexplainable Store: It provides life tools in the form of audio brainwave stimulation to enhance your mind power through affirmations, positive thinking, self-improvement, and meditation to help you deal with mental and health issues, relationships, and other life problems.

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.
