Ruth taught me how to pay attention to what I want from life. Did I ever expect to live in poverty? Did I expect my life to be meaningless because I was receiving government aid and growing up in a family destroyed by addiction?

All along before Ruth, had I expected that I would be a failure because of where I lived or who my parents were?”

More quotes by Joe Dispenza

“I spent many late nights during medical school using my brain to think about the brain and then using my mind to ponder the irony of it. How exactly do we separate and distinguish the mind from the brain?

I can operate on the brain but not on the mind, but operating on the brain can forever alter the mind. It's a dilemma of causality – a circular reference problem like the perennial question of what came first, the chicken or the egg.”

“It takes work, and some things will take longer to happen than others. And sometimes it won't happen exactly the way you expect. But I promise you, everything you put on your list, everything you feel in your heart, everything you think about and imagine with your mind, if you truly believe, if you work very hard, will happen.

You have to see it and then you have to go after it. You can't just wait in your room. You actually have to go get good grades, and go to medical school, and learn how to be a doctor.

But in some mysterious way you will also be drawing it to you, and you will become what you imagine. If you use your mind and your heart, it will happen.”

“It's the same with the wound in our hearts. We need to give them our attention so that they can heal. Otherwise the wounds continue to cause us pain. Sometimes for a very long time. We're all going to get hurt. But here's the trick – they also serve an amazing purpose.

When our hearts are wounded that's when they open. We grow through pain. We grow through difficult situations. That's why you have to embrace each and every difficult thing in your life.”

“One thing every human has in common is the first sound we hear. It’s the heartbeat of our mother. That steady rhythm is the first connection each of us knows, not with our minds, but the knowing is there in our hearts.

“Research has shown that the more connected we are socially, the longer we will live and the faster we will recover when we get ill. In truth, isolation and loneliness puts us at a greater risk for early disease and death than smoking.

Authentic social connection has a profound effect on your mental health — it even exceeds the value of exercise and ideal body weight on your physical health. It makes you feel good.

Social connection triggers the same reward centers in your brain that are triggered when people do drugs, or drink alcohol, or eat chocolate. In other words, we get sick alone, and we get well together.”
