The Complex Mind can handle simple commands

Rick Hanson in “Buddha’s Brain” shares this: “The number of possible combinations of 100 billion neurons firing or not is approximately 10 to the millionth power, or 1 followed by a million zeros, in principle; this is the number of possible states of your brain.”

Extremely complex with incredible chances for opportunity.

Why would we choose negative stimuli to focus on?

We have a choice.

This morning we could only entertain positive, hopeful and soothing thoughts.

Hanson says:

“It’s so busy that, even though it’s only 2 percent of the body’s weight, it uses 20–25 percent of its oxygen and glucose.”

Choose optimism, a bounty of gratitude and kindness.

Choose to be present, in harmony with the earth and others.

Let being special or selfish alone.

Just be an observer for a while, letting the one who judges rest for a long while.

Can you give up judgments today?
