Knowing oneself is central to personal development
According to author and philosopher Ilchi Lee, brain education can play a central role in an individual's pursuit of spiritual growth. It is central to developing a strong understanding of the self, which is a necessary first step in any plan to seek improvement.
"To know the brain is to know oneself, and to understand the essence of life," Ilchi Lee said. "Without knowledge of your brain, you cannot truly know yourself or your life."
This knowledge can be attained through a number of methods. One of the most prominent advocated by Ilchi Lee is meditation. This can help individuals calm their brain and empty it of all the negativity that has built up over the weeks and months. Once this debris is cleared, long dormant regions of the mind can again blossom.
Many people go through their entire lives without thinking to question who they are or why they think certain things. However, without asking what the basis for their thoughts are and seeking to understand their inner selves, positive personal change is impossible.
