power of intention

A Quote by Brian on god, wayne dyer, power of intention, intention, kindness, power, people, and serotonin

Have you ever heard about the effects of kindness on your brain? Wayne Dyer shares the amazing science of kindness in his book “Power of Intention.” It goes something like this:

Serotonin is the drug that makes you feel good. It’s what all the pharmaceutical companies pump into those wonderful little anti-depressants. It’s also a little drug God decided to pump through our brains when we do things he/she/it likes. It’s kinda like a little reward for good behavior, you know?

Anyway, get this: when you do something kind for someone else, the person you’re helping has serotonin released in her brain—she feels happier.

And so do you.

Good news! Two more serotonin-induced happier people in the world! Woo hoo!

But the most amazing thing is this: not only do you and the person you helped feel better, so does some random person who happened to watch your act of kindness.

Let’s be nice.

A Quote by Sakyong Mipham on power of intention

As I live my day, I always try to have a contemplation going - whether I'm talking to people, riding in a car, giving teachings, or eating.  This can be as simple as bringing my mind back to the thought "May others be happy" at every opportunity. Or I might focus on selflessness or how to help someone who is ill. That power of intention helps me turn confusion on its ear and enjoy my life.  When self-absorption arises, I use the precision of my morning meditation to turn the energy inside out. i find that the more I do this, the less worried I feel. Each day is an opportunity to sharpen and deepen the conclusions I've drawn in my morning practice.
