not really!! he basically said that we think what we think because it is necessary.
Unlike Descartes, Spinoza believed that the mind was an extension of the body, and vice versa. He thought that there was only one type of substance, a divine substance, of which the mind and body were part. As one thing, the mind and body could interact in harmony, not the discord Descartes was concerned with.

mind body dualism, the belief that the mind is a spiritual entity not subject to the physical laws that govern the body. monsim holds that the mind is not a separate spiritual entity, mind and body are one, and mental events are simply a product of physical events.
So a living person, from Spinoza's point of view, is not the composite of two different things. The living person is a single unit or "modification" of substance that can be conceived either as extension or thought. Your "body" is a unit of substance conceived as extension; your "mind" is the selfsame unit of substance conceived as thought.
To my mind this problem is quite complicated and might resolve with the help of one tool, which I discovered some days ago. What is more the software would help in this problem.

According to Rossman, imagination is the key to understanding the self, and can be used to resolve many issues of mind and body fitness, including stress.
Philosophy of mind is a branch ofphilosophythat studies the nature of the mind, mental events, mental functions, mental properties,consciousness, and their relationship to the physical body, particularly the brain. The mind-body problem, i.e. the relationship of the mind to the body, is commonly seen as one key issue in philosophy of mind, although there are other issues concerning the nature of the mind that do not involve its relation to the physical body, such as how consciousness is possible and the nature of particular mental states.
Suppose you would be hypnotized. Then the person who does the hypnotizing could have you sit in an awkward position for a long time. So the point is that sitting still is not really a problem of the body, but of the mind. The body often reflects your state of mind. So if your mind would be made 'visible' like the body is, then it would seem quite restless. So the real question is: how to comfort and relax the mind? The answer is simple. Meditate. After a while the mind will settle down and then the body will follow.
