We all have things we'd like to change in our lives. But when we try to make those changes, we often find it difficult, if not impossible. Our mistake, says Dr. Miller, is that we try to change what is before we're fully aware of who we are and what we stand for. If we wish to achieve goals that truly satisfy and fulfill us, we need a true awareness of who we are, how far we want to go, and in what direction.
Change the images and strategies that your mind uses to re-write the script of your life. Dr. Emmett Miller is a physician, health educator, author, and a pioneer in the field of mind/body medicine. For over thirty years, he has taught that when you are responsive to your internal as well as your external environment, most difficulties are eased. The mind and body become alive and attuned, and act in accord with changing experience. The result is wellness and high levels of performance and creativity.
This book focuses on truth, beliefs that best match empirical evidence. Truth contrasts with truthiness, beliefs supported primarily by emotions and feelings. When political satirist Steven Colbert celebrated the rise of "truthiness", he called attention to an important pathology in our body politic. Over the past decade, it has become increasingly common and acceptable for public figures to boost whatever beliefs they feel will help their cause.
