March 9, 2016 – The Eye Opener

The Eye Opener
Wednesday, March 9, 2016
When we become fully conscious that we, as men, are spirit primarily, that our bodies are but necessary instruments through which the spirit works, that the mind is not a collection of brain cells but is actually a series of thought waves as free of actual substance as the winds or the rays of light or heat, we appreciate the fact that chains are powerless to restrain the thoughts which are actually the mind.

We can and do select the thoughts we store up in these brain cells. We keep what we want and we discard what we please. The kind of thoughts we think become habit and so become us.
