Consultant Ken Verni writes about meditation in his book, page 110: “The more you meditate, the more your brain changes – for the better! Scientists are constantly adding to our knowledge of how this works. Learning about some of the important discoveries made to date can be a great motivator at this early stage in your mindfulness meditation program…Scientists have located several brain areas of structures associated with changes in mind-state brought about by meditative practice…Meditation helps to weaken the connections between the ‘self’ center and the fear and sensation centers, and boost the pathways through which the assessment center works.”

Random Acts of Kindness
You don’t need money, just a little time to give mental support and be kind to all. Check on the elderly, bring their Newspaper to their door in bad weather, say hello to your neighbors when you see them, wish them happy holidays and birthdays etc. Call your parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles; talk to them to make sure they are not lonely. Thank the soldiers when you see them for keeping us safe; thank priests, police officers, teachers, postal workers, newspaper persons, trash collectors for their services. Write notes to a lonely and unknown person and make his or her day. These acts of kindness have a trickle-down effect.
