TARGETED THERAPY is a term used in the medical sciences. There are about 25,000 genes in the human body. Targeted therapy is a type of treatment that targets those specific genes that contribute to cancer growth, while leaving out other genes.
To bring about change in human life, the starting point is to first change the human mind by bringing about change in the thinking process
Targeted therapy includes drugs that are aimed at specific genes that are only found in cancer cells that contribute to cancer growth and survival. This selective treatment carried out on a selective basis, is called targeted therapy.
The same technique is required with regard to human reform. The basic factor governing the human being is the mind. There is a saying in the Bible:
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.
Proverbs 23: 7
Therefore, to bring about change in human life, the starting point is to change the thinking process of the human mind. The method of targeted therapy is useful for most aspects of human life. This principle is beneficial for maintaining the physical health of the human body and also in developing a healthy personality.
Many people speak about the necessity of social reform. In spite of all the enormous efforts being done in this regard, there is a lack of results, because the starting point is not correct.
The correct starting point is to address the individual mind with the aim of revolutionizing the thinking of the individual. This is the right way of social reform. No other method will work in this regard.

One has to accept certain things in life
either willingly or unwillingly.
Learn the art of acceptance.
It is easy to reject, but only a great mind can accept.
Acceptance is a phenomenon of maturity.
Man is a justification-seeking being.
So, maturity means the ability to justify your action.
Maturity means more knowledge, more experience.
It is a process that occurs on
an unconscious level.
If you are a developed mind then consciously or unconsciously
you will be able to analyse things instantly.
You will not need to
refer to books, data or an encyclopedia.
