STORMS OF THE MIND
Surviving sandstorms is easy. All you have
to do is hunker down and hang on until the storm is over.
Surviving the storms of the mind is an entirely different
matter. The last time I checked the statistics, over eighteen
thousand people used guns to commit suicide in the USA in a
single year. When I listen to the news and talk with my
patients, it's clear that there's an epidemic of depression
sweeping over the land. Now is a good time to buy stock in drug
companies that sell anti-depressant drugs.
People are smoking dope, sniffing cocaine, and taking
methamphetamine in record numbers. Just a few years ago, those
same people were happy children without a care in the world.
Even being a baby isn't safe anymore - fetal alcohol syndrome
and cocaine babies begin life in a hellish hole.
So what went wrong?
Lots of things went wrong, and nearly all of them are
preventable. We have met the enemy and he is us.
Believe it or not, we are responsible for the storm of thoughts
that blow through our mind. If we want to create violent
children, then turn on the TV set and fill their mind with
violent images. Teach them that violence is an acceptable way
to resolve conflict. If you want to raise sick people addicted
to drugs, then simply dump the garbage in their mind, and watch
them self-destruct. If you want to become depressed, then fill
you mind with depressing things.
It really does matter what you put into your mind, and if you
want to have healthy happy children, it matters what you allow
into their mind as well.
I don't know about you, but I've got my mind made up. Nobody's
going to dump their garbage into my mind. My brain isn't a
dumpster. and nobody's going to fill it with their trash.
There's no room for violence in my mind, and there's no room for
dysfunctional thoughts. There's no room for addiction and no
room for depressing thoughts.
My mind belongs to me and
I'm going to fill it with good things. What I put in my mind is
important because it becomes the wind that blows there.
