MENTAL SLIPPAGE - CONTROL OF YOUR THOUGHTS
The first type of mental slippage
focuses on controlling your thoughts. When you lose
control of your thoughts, you lose control of your life.
Imagine that you are an air traffic
controller at Los Angeles International Airport. You track
aircraft on radar and tell them when and where it's safe to fly.
You assign altitudes and courses to planes to prevent mid-air
collisions and to safely bring them in to land.
Similarly, you assign courses and
altitudes to planes as they take off. If everyone does
exactly as instructed, planes don't collide with each other, and
the airport runs efficiently without mishap.
Imagine what would happen if suddenly
incoming aircraft chose their own altitude and landed whenever
they wanted. Imagine that each aircraft took off whenever
it pleased. Total chaos would ensue. Approaching
aircraft would run into airplanes sitting on the runways.
Mid-air collisions would happen all over the sky.
Without command and control, a modern
international airport would become a disaster area.
Command and control are everything. Someone has to be in
charge and make sure that aircraft do exactly as instructed.
That's why we have air traffic controllers.
Imagine what would happen if you lost
command and control in your mind. Instead of you running
your mind, your mind ran you. Your incoming thoughts and
outgoing thoughts zoomed around totally out of control.
That's what happens when you have mental
slippage. You no longer control the thoughts that pass
through your mind. You lose control of your mental
traffic. Your thought controller no longer functions
properly, and thoughts fly in every direction.
Fortunately, when your thought controller doesn't function
correctly, you can use medication to stop the mental slippage
and reestablish command and control.
