Turn On the Learning Switch

"The Learning Switch:  Learning occurs in the brain.  However, for the brain to do its job, the "learning switch" needs to be turned on.  During childhood, the learning switch is turned on a lot.  As we grow and take on the responsibilities of adulthood, we tend to develop habitual patterns, a set way of doing things, rigidity and resistance to change.  Our learning switch turns off and learning slows way down.  We can learn to turn the learning switch back on, regardless of age.  When we do, everything in our lives becomes an opportunity, and miracles seem to pop up everywhere; our lives are filled with movement, new ides, vivid memory, sensuality , and pleasure."
