In attempting to understand your mind, there is one principle that needs to be understood above all others; let’s call it the “energy-flow” principle. Simply put, the mind is like an energy conductor; it gathers and directs energy. The basic principle of energy in relation to the mind is that wherever energy goes, something grows. Whether it’s good or bad, positive or negative, it doesn’t matter. Where energy goes, something grows.
