“almost automatic response: “That’s just a senseless obsession. It’s a false message. I’m going to focus my attention on something else.” At this point, the automatic transmission in your brain begins to start working properly again.”
Jeffrey M. Schwartz, Brain Lock: Free Yourself from Obsessive-Compulsive Behavior

“we cannot know what really happens, but only what we observe to happen.”
Jeffrey M. Schwartz, The Mind and the Brain: Neuroplasticity and the Power of Mental Force

“[T]here is no stronger influence on human values than man's belief about his relationship to the power that shapes the universe. When medieval science connected man directly to his Creator, man saw himself as a child of the divine imbued with a will free to choose between the good and evil. When the scientific revolution converted human beings from the sparks of divine creation into not particularly special cogs in a giant impersonal machine, it eroded any rational basis for the notion of responsibility for one's actions.”
Jeffrey M. Schwartz, The Mind and the Brain: Neuroplasticity and the Power of Mental Force
