"Neuroscience does offer new, exciting validation that our thoughts and feelings change the structure and functioning of our brain," Mark Waldman and Andrew Newberg, MD.

There is considerable information out there nowadays that our thinking is what creates our lives. If we expect planes to always be running late, that is more likely our experience. If we expect people to treat us well, that is more likely our experience. Life will treat us better if we treat it better. But the above quote goes beyond that. New research indicates that the thoughts and feelings we choose to have actually change the structure of our brains. Meditating on positive and loving thoughts and feelings changes our brains to generate more empathy, compassion and inner peacefulness.
