There's so much I have read about having a normal functioning brain being the most wonderful thing one can possess. Intellect, emotional balance, and creativity comes from that slab of gray matter between the ears.
Thinking one is unwell leads to disease. Thinking one is unappreciated makes you feel worthless... and to stop thinking dries up the creative juices.
Nearing senior citizenship I am finally comforted at the thought that GOD together with his assigned angels love and take care of me. I can almost feel their presence in my daily struggle with disease.
Peace and Happiness -"Brainwashing" if you will: that -- I subject my everyday thoughts. I think only of the good -- in me and in others.
My daily mantra: The Lords Prayer whenever there is pain.
