The Secret To Lasting Change

The heart of change: It is only when the totality of the human mind – mind being the nervous responses, the emotions, the everything that is you – completely responds, without any fragmentation in that response, that there is a new action taking place.  – Krishnamurti

sheer will power

Do we have the will to do it? How many times do we ask ourselves and others the same question? And how many times do we all fail, repeatedly? Why is it so hard to stick to something even when we want to?

our full attention instead

Deciding something at the mind level is not enough by itself. We must involve our emotional (mind) and spiritual faculties. This is the secret to lasting change. This explains why most of our New Year resolutions fail. For the mind to be involved there must be meaning attached to the goal. For our spiritual self to be incorporated the goal must align with long term purposes including higher desires such as self-actualization. Approaching any endeavor with our full attention and our complete being is the key all successful change!

Daily Affirmation: Today I AM fully present.
