I am a gransdon of immigrants and a veteran of military service overseas. I hold the constitution of the United States of America in very high regard. I believe in the spirit of these words:
"GIVE ME YOUR TIRED, YOUR POOR, YOUR HUDDLED MASSES YEARNING TO BREATHE FREE, THE WRETCHED REFUSE OF YOUR TEEMING SHORE. SEND THESE, THE HOMELESS, TEMPEST-TOST TO ME, I LIFT MY LAMP BESIDE THE GOLDEN DOOR!" by Emma Lazarus
The current leadership of our country denigrates American values.

Biofeedback (bottom-up influence) is active within, and bridges the gap between, the mental activity of thought and the visceral experience of emotion. The reciprocity of thought and emotion can be harnessed.
Mindfulness (top-down influence) floats in the mental atmosphere affecting experience in a top down way whereas biofeedback piggy-backs on the flow of sensory input acting from the bottom up.
