This article which is supposed to be all about the brain, wont be doing that, but will only be about the mind. You might be having problems like; unintelligency,low assimilation and lack of understanding. The main source of your problem is not the brain, but the mind. The mind is a powerful organ of the human, infact, it is one of the three parts that make up a human. The buddah used to say, that the mind is like a chattering monkey, that jumps from thought branch to thought branch. have you noticed yourself, losted among thoughts. finding yourself thinking of past, present and even future events without your will. This is what i call, mind malfunction. the more this keeps happening to you, the more difficult it gets to read or even understand. For you to read and understand, the mind has to be clear. the mind is like the pipe through which water of knowledge pass through to the tank (brain). so, having a calm mind is having a clean pipe, which will pure knowledge into the brain. this atticle will teach you just how to clear the mind. Meditation is the best process of clearing the mind. but since there are so many types of meditations, am gonna give you just the right one to practice. Have a place where you can meditate at least four times in a week, but two times a day gives a rapid result. your place of meditation should be a quiet place where you cant be disturbed at all. meditate for at least ,five minutes duration, each time you do so. so how do you meditate?, sit down comfortably on a chair, not relaxing on it but, upright. focus your gaze on a point, which you could have marked out on a board on a wall with a marker previously. keep your mind,as much as possible, focus on that point and control your breathing in and out, throughout the period. do this everyday, and you will be surprised. Cheers!!
