What are you thinking??


By: Dr. Robert Neposlan

In previous articles, we shared research on how our thoughts affect our health. I want to suggest that our thoughts not only affect our health but our world. There are so many books and articles now being written on the subject. It’s my feeling that as important as it is to teach our kids to read and write, it’s just as important to teach them to control their mind and their thoughts. Thoughts become things; they create our reality, our future!!

I recently had an email sent to me. In light of what we’re trying to share in our live well, eat well, move well, and think well articles, I felt it appropriate to share it with you. Hopefully, you get as much out of it as I did.

Excerpts from: A Message by George Carlin (May 12, 1937June 22, 2008):
The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but
shorter tempers, wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more,
but have less; we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and
smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees
but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more
problems, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little,
drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too
little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too
much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to
life not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but
have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer
space but not inner space.

We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom,
but not our prejudice.

We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to
hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate
less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small
character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of
two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes.

It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the
stockroom, a time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time
when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete…

Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going
to be around forever.Compassion towards Children

Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because
that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.

Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the
only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent.

Remember, to say, ‘I love you’ to your partner and your loved ones, but
most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes
from deep inside of you.

Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will
not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious
thoughts in your mind.


Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments
that take our breath away.

George Carlin


Until next week,

Think Well
