It gives a lot of factual information, puts all our experience in a magnificently consistent order, but it is ghastly silent about all and sundry that is really near to our heart, that really matters to us. It cannot tell us a word about red and blue, bitter and sweet, physical pain and physical delight; it knows nothing of beautiful and ugly, good or bad, God and eternity. Science sometimes pretends to answer questions in these domains, but the answers are very often so silly that we are not inclined to take them seriously.- Nobel Laureate Erwin Schrodinger</p> <p>4</p> <p>Bhagavad-gita 6.5 &amp; 6.6:Our mind has self-sabotaging programs, like viruses in a software </p> <p>5</p> <p>M - Magnifies problemsI - Imagines pleasures N - Neglect opportunities D - Denies reality </p> <p>6</p> <p>Delusional parasitosis Eg Woman frog in the abdomen Worry is the interest we pay on loans we havent yet taken</p> <p>7</p> <p>Pavlovian response Eg Dogs salivating on hearing bell</p> <p>8</p> <p>We are present everywhere except in the presentThe future will be brighter if we brighten the present</p> <p>9</p> <p>Duryodhana, I dont see even the slightest fault in whatever I have done.The wound denied is the wound worsened. </p> <p>10</p> <p>M Meditate I Illuminate (your inner world)N Navigate (your inner pitfalls)D Do it with others </p> <p>11</p> <p>The calm within empowers us to cope with the storm without Eg Boat anchor Let spiritual sound empower you </p> <p>12</p> <p>Let spiritual wisdom illumine your inner worldScience can make things better; spirituality can make people better </p> <p>13</p> <p>When in doubt, get it out remove mental congestion Journal to explore and evaluate your thoughts and feelings </p> <p>14</p> <p>Our desires are not just linear, but also triangularEg Soccer mania among IndiansLet spiritual association be the stimulant for your self-empowerment </p> <p>15</p>
