Why Embody Serenity?

Choosing serenity opens a fundamental question: What do you want?  What we focus on is what we become, and our brain neurochemistry follows. In 1949, neuropsychologist Donald Hebb discovered that “Neurons that fire together, wire together.” In other words, what we focus on is powerful as our brain is formed and reinforced through repetition. I choose serenity because it positively touches all 8 dimensions of the embodied mind: emotional, social, cognitive, physical, behavioral, cultural, spiritual, and philosophical.

  1. I like the site. Liked the quotes on scrolling down, particularly, ““We do not see things as they are. We see things as we are.” Also the question, “What do you want?” Up bubbled, the only things I want are things I cannot have, world peace and immortality… sigh. Guess that means I have all I want. Guess it does. Good job. How come all the Spanish on the video page?
