"Someday, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love. Then for the second time in the history of the world man will have discovered fire."
Teilhard de Chardin
Welcome to another of our free information sections from SUNRISE for you to enjoy and perhaps apply in your own personal journey of life.
This topic has been quickly put together for our readers to help you gain an understanding of the essential knowledge surrounding the way your brain and mind works and the likely problems that can afflict it, what you can do to avoid the problems, and how you can enhance the functions of the brain to achieve accelerated learning, modify your beliefs to become more balanced, and give you the power to adapt to a wider range of changes in the environment and other people. It will cover all the relevant groundwork on how your brain works, how behaviour is formed, the importance of positive emotions for improved memory and other functions. and the types of common behaviours generated by the brain when we choose to think in a particular way in what we describe crudely speaking as left- or right-brain.
We will then discuss the principles of accelerated learning. And finally look at some of the biggest problems of the world to see if there are simple solutions we can all implement, irrespective of how complicated world leaders would be inclined to see them from their perspective.
It is hoped by the end of this research topic that you will gain a better appreciation of the power you have to solving virtually any problems set before you. The fact that you can achieve anything thanks to your amazing brain through the choices you make today should inspire you to move dramatically ahead and make the most of your life, move society toward a more balanced future, and ensure the world is filled with the love and hope we all deserve.
Happy reading...and learning!
