How the Mind Functions

 Date Palm Somewhere in Spain
(Excerpts from MIND, TIME, AND POWER by Anthony Hamilton)

"If you change your understanding of how the mind functions, the belief of what's possible also changes."

"Thinking of the mind as a receiver of information opens up the possibility of receiving information from a virtually infinite number of new sources."

"The mind, like the ground, will produce any kind of seed you put in it.  It takes time, cultivation, and decision."

"We all have the power to transform ordinary experiences into extraordinary lessons."

"The life I want to create is calling me, trying to manifest itself through me, if only I have the courage to accept responsibility for living my dream."

"The key to mastery over the outer world is gaining mastery over the inner world--to choose for ourselves what we think and how we feel."

"The journey to the inner self is not for the faint of heart."

"The mind operates simultaneously in two worlds -- an outer physical world of events and an inner non-physical world of thoughts.  Like a cat perched on a windowsill, your conscious awareness sits at the interface of both worlds, looking both outward and inward."

"At first glance the outer world seems separate from the inner world.  But this is an illusion.  The two are intimately connected.  In fact, your two worlds are really just different aspects of one overall reality, reflecting something going on deep inside of you.  Your job from now on will be to figure out what that something is."
