"Using Your Brain For A Change" is a great book by Richard Bandler, that covers how to regain or in some cases gain control over your life by using your brain, what a concept. Richard Bandler is the Co-founder of Neuro Linguistic Programming, NLP. The Brain is the thing that fills most of your head and it is located behind the eyes, under the scalp and between the ears and learning to use it will improve your life. The Mind is the non-local thinking parts of your body, it contains much of what can be considered your essence, your intelligence. Yes, most of your body thinks and is intelligent, but that is another very long article.
The Brain, in Consort with your Mind has the ability to create and re-create you. Your thoughts and beliefs reside in your brain and mind, which doesn't narrow down their location and it or they, like everything else in our universe is energy. You are an electro-chemical, biological, energy based spiritual being that produces or rather can produce everything you need to thrive, naturally. So, why are so many people just surviving, why are so many taking drugs (prescription or non) to help them make it through the day. The answer is quite simple, you have been taught and conditioned to not be in control of you, taught that you need them to maintain what you consider a life, or what a life is to you. As Richard Bandler puts it "Who Is Driving The Bus"? And, if you are not a self affirming being, if you are not creating the chemicals you need naturally, if you think you need "them" (people institutions outside of you), you are not driving the bus.
