As a kid,
I’ve always wanted to capture
but I wondered what
would I’ve done
if I actually caught one?
So day in
with a smile on my face
just for the chance to write
my own story.
Because isn’t that the only reason
why we do anything?
Why we abuse
until we are halfway to our graves.
We want to be remembered.
We want our words
to live on past the afterlife
making us immortal.
We are tired of not being the narrative
because we want to stand out.
We want to become heroes
in our own story.
So, I remain steadfast
with my pen
waiting for the opportunity,
still chasing that dragon.

1. MEDITATION SPEEDS UP BRAIN PROCESSING POTENTIAL
According to a research journal article published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience in February 2012, meditation can alter the geometry of the brain’s surface. There was a study done at the University of California in Los Angeles involving 50 meditators and 50 controls that addressed a possible link between meditation and cortical gyrification, the pattern and degree of cortical folding that allows the brain to process faster. This study showed a positive correlation between the amount of gyrification in parts of the brain and the number of years of meditation for people, especially long-term meditators, compared to non-meditators.
This increased gyrification may reflect an integration of cognitive processes when meditating, since meditators are known to be introspective and contemplative, using certain portions of the brain in the process of meditation. Despite articles written from this journal article, more research is still necessary to…
