The author of “Self-Awareness and the Social Brain” writes: “I’ve been practicing mindfulness for almost a decade. I also practice yoga, meditation, and a few other things. I also know how to listen to and see the world from a different perspective. I’ve often thought that there was a clear distinction between the two.
As with all things, there is a difference between the two, and at least Ive seen the distinction. Ive also studied the brain, so I can say that Ive a lot of experience with the two. Ive seen the evidence that Ive been paying attention to the world more and more.
Ive learned about the brain from a scientist who is currently teaching a course at my local university. He said that he would rather have a well educated person in the world than an ignorant person. Ive studied the brain a lot, and I can say that Ive got far more experience with the brain than most people. Ive seen the evidence that Ive been paying attention to the world more and more.
