Laura Hansen's curator insight, July 22, 12:46 PM

Brilliance doesn't originate in the brain. Brilliance is flow of the universe through the mind effectively expressed. The mind is a vast network of connected thoughts in a field of limitless possibility. Each of us has a brain and a mind. And, we are neither. We are here to experience and become by using both.

 

During your day today and before you go to sleep, give your brain permission to rest. Give permission for your mind to rest. Allow yourself to rise out of your life for a while, resting in the arms of the universe -- the source of  yourself.

 

When you wake up, take a few minutes to experience the unity and power of the universe flowing through your rested mind and brain. I know it seems like a wild thing to ask, but you may find it easier than you expect.

 

Let me know how it goes.

 

Enjoy your brilliance.

Sharing is What Makes the Internet Work


The Web gave people the ability to share images easily. That’s why there are thousands of image sharing sites like Flickr and SmugMug. People want to share images that excite and motivate them.
