How To “Think” Yourself To Great Health: Meditation & The “Cell Membrane”
Think of your body as a “community” of 50 trillion living cells.
While each “citizen” (cell) is a conscious, living, breathing, sentient being, interacting with all other community members — they are also part of the much bigger, much more wonderfully complex “whole.”

A Master of Memory in India Credits Meditation for His Brainy Feats
Munishri Ajitchandrasagarji, a Jain monk who captivates audiences with his ability to memorize hundreds of random items in sequence…
The young man sat cross-legged atop a cushioned divan on an ornately decorated stage, surrounded by other Jain monks draped in white cloth. His lip occasionally twitched, his hands lay limp in his lap, and for the most part his eyes were closed. An announcer repeatedly chastised the crowd for making even the slightest noise.
From daybreak until midafternoon, members of the audience approached the stage, one at a time, to show the young monk a random object, pose a math problem, or speak a word or phrase in one of at least six different languages.

After six hours, the 500th and last item was uttered — it was the number 100,008. An anxious hush descended over the crowd.

The Art of Self-Acceptance
One of Bob Ross’s most famous kernels of wisdom tells us so much about self-love, self-acceptance, and embracing life on life’s terms.
We all learn and grow when we push ourselves to try something new, or to improve on something we’re already good at. When we accept that we won’t be perfect, and indeed should not expect perfection, we open our minds to the possibility that making mistakes will help us discover some new part of ourselves.

Mindfulness and Meditation
“Mindfulness is not about being positive all the time or a bubblegum sort of happiness — la, la, la,” she said. “It’s about noticing what happens moment to moment, the easy and the difficult, and the painful and the joyful. It’s about building a muscle to be present and awake in your life.”
