  1. I read through all the quotes and decided Aristotle had encapsulated it really well: Happiness depends on ourselves.” Then I changed my mind and then I changed my mind again. the truth is there is a lot of truth in these quotes on love and happiness.

    I am a great believer in learning to meditate and am aware people use many methods to enhance the quality.

    Our lives are overloaded with information and can be really stressful. Time out to meditate can be an enormous energiser.

    I understand your jump to sound and brainwave enhancement.

    I love the quotes and will bookmark your site for further reading.
