According to George Lakoff, a specialist in cognitive linguistics, a science which encompasses matching specific uses of language with the activity in the brain, you cannot make a strictly logical decision without bringing your emotions into play. In fact, he speaks of a New Enlightenment, “a deep rationality that can take account of, a mind that is largely unconscious, embodied, emotional, empathic, metaphorical, and only partly universal.”1
Taking it deeper to the nature of my writing, you are choosing the thoughts that nurture your emotions. Your free will is guiding you. If you disagree that you have free will – the mere fact that you debate this is evidence of your free will: and will probably bring a laugh or bounce from the page. Emotional, aren’t we? LOL
Where am I going with this? Check out my link to VIRTUAL DOG TRAINING and you will see me demonstrate. As you observe you will hear me narrate as I offer training tips which exemplify this point in many ways:
1. Marking a good behavior with "YES"
2. Frequent "YES's" mark learning
3. Observing behavior and catching the learning moment with "YES" yields connectivity
How many more benefits of "YES" can you observe?
Join the fun and thank you for contributing to the cause. Sincerely, Sandra
