"What you give out is what you create." David Icke
There are many people - past and present - who can help you understand the power that your mind and heart have over your body. Our perspective is our reality and once this concept is embraced, freedom can be achieved. Abraham Lincoln said "People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be." It was as true then as it is now.
Long before The Secret, there was As a Man Thinketh by James Allen, written in 1902. It is a beacon in my library. You can read the short book in totality online here. Or you can order a copy from DeVorss Publications for a mere $3.50.
Mind is the Master-power
that moulds and makes
Man is Mind,
and evermore he takes
The tool of Thought,
and shaping what he wills
Brings forth a thousand joys,
a thousand ills
He thinks in secret,
and it come to pass:
Environment is but his looking-glass
Decide for yourself how healthy you want to be in body, mind and spirit. See it. Feel it. Embrace how it will feel when it arrives. Stay focused on that feeling and you'll be amazed what changes you'll attract. Become a magnet for good stuff!
Some of you out there are like "Yeah, right, Carla, you're whacked. Get a real obsession. Institutions like the FDA and Big Pharma are there to protect us, to keep things like sawdust out of our food* and make drugs that will save us."
And then I say "Read this:
According to the Journal of Medical Ethics, it has been proposed that happiness be classified as a psychiatric disorder and be included in future editions of the major diagnostic manuals under the new name: major affective disorder, pleasant type.
In a review of the relevant literature it is shown that happiness is statistically abnormal, consists of a discrete cluster of symptoms, is associated with a range of cognitive abnormalities, and probably reflects the abnormal functioning of the central nervous system.
One possible objection to this proposal remains--that happiness is not negatively valued. However, this objection is dismissed as scientifically irrelevant."
Happiness is soon to be a classified disease! And YOU KNOW that a bevy of pills will soon follow. Good gravy, we just can't have a bunch of folks out there HAPPY. How dangerous and unfair to the unhappy. Let's numb them all down so that no one attempts to break through the doom and gloom that keeps them all under control.
Maybe the people behind these proposals are just jealous that we don't have to sit around and try to invent imaginary diseases to convince people, by preying on their fears, that they need to buy really expensive medications from self-serving mega companies. That has got to be the most unhappy job!
