“There must be parallel brain change to match new thoughts, goals and dreams…or they do not become sustainable.” You see, you can have new thoughts, great goals, big dreams and compelling visions…but these thoughts, goals, dreams and visions are fleeting if the Higher Brain does not drive them forward.
