There are few things that most of us in this world seek and value more than health and happiness. In an attempt to attain health, we go through diet after diet, workout routine after workout routine trying to figure out what works best for us -and in many cases will keep us interested long enough to attain results.
What does it mean to be? What is being? How are you who you are? Also, how do you know who you are?
There is no way to be who you are if you don’t take action to be who you are. Who you are comes from deliberate actions you take. Thinking, visualizing, and following the image of who you are, are actions you take on purpose. Before you take an action, you are presented with a situation, event, or condition. This presentation is the first thing you experience.

Did you ever have it all mixed up?
Happiness, I mean. I once thought that a university degree and good grades would make me happy. I thought that traveling the world would leave me feeling fulfilled. I thought that moving abroad and getting that top-notch job would make me satisfied and content.
They all did, but only for a while.
Where does happiness exist in the brain? Are the brains of happy people different from those of unhappy people? Researchers from Kyoto University, in a new study published in the journal Scientific Reports, say the precuneus region is larger in people who report more happiness in their lives than in people who aren’t as happy.
In the study, neuroscientists first scanned the brains of 51 participants, 26 of them female, using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
