It is now widely acknowledged that deep within us is a field of creativity, energy and intelligence. This inner field is the home of happiness within us - the 'kingdom of heaven within'.
Science tells us, however, that we as human beings use only a very small portion of our full human potential. So, most people don't utilize much of what is available to them from their inner resources.
As a result, most people do not live a life of fulfilment, peace, joy and daily happiness.
This field of energy, intelligence and creativity is the inner creative consciousness that causes and manages our entire physical growth and development.
This creative and intelligent consciousness creates our entire body-mind system and manages our growth all the way from conception. It heals cuts and wounds to our body. It assimilates the nutrition absorbed from the food we eat, and so on and so forth.
And it does this constantly, all the time, whether we are asleep or awake, and also with or without our conscious cooperation.
Some people describe CMR as an effective meditation technique for better health, greater energy, less stress and generaly experiencing more happiness in life. It is regarded by those who use it and one of the meditation techniques that actually 'work'.
Even with the basic CMR course anyone can easily allow the mind to commune consciously with its inner source more often than usually happens in our hectic modern lifestyle.
The result of this daily tapping into in these quieter levels of consciousness is that more and more of our untapped potential comes to be expressed spontaneously in our daily living.
By that I mean, without effort or contriving, we start to notice that something subtle and good is happening in the quality of life as we experience it each day. Life just starts getting better for us, all the time.
This happens quite spontaneously. We start to become aware of how things have shifted within us, and how stress seems to have been dissolved from the body-mind system.
Often, people who use such a method notice also that their environment has become more supportive too.

CMR, then, is the primary do-able key that unlocks the treasure chest within us to allow more of our inner happiness and creative consciousness to flow into every aspect of our life experience.
There is, however, a second do-able key to happiness that we can also - and in fact should also - know about so that we can apply it to further assist the unfolding of happiness, creativity and peace in our lives. This second key is what I call Conscious Mental Attention (CMA), which is the subject of this particular theme.
Whereas Conscious Mental Rest involves the skill of efficiently using our attention to allow the mind and body to rest and rejuvenate, Conscious Mental Attention is the skill of efficiently using our attention in daily living.
We do this to support the growth of creative consciousness and the expansion of happiness by minimizing the obstacles we so often place in the way, through old habits of thinking, speaking and doing.
If someone ever tells you to follow your bliss, Conscious Mental Attention is the way to do this. We'll cover this in more detail in the pages to follow.
