My Thoughts…

I believe the relationship that exists between the mind and the body is very intimate. When one is affected, the other sympathizes. The condition of the mind will affect the physical system. When the mind is free and content from a consciousness of right doing and a sense of satisfaction in causing happiness to others, it creates a cheerfulness that will react upon the whole system causing a freer circulation of blood and toning up of the entire body.

The influence of the mind on the body, as well as, the influence of the body on the mind should be emphasized. The electric power of the brain promoted by mental activity vitalizes the whole system and thus acts as an invaluable aid in resisting disease. This should be made plain: The power of will and the importance of self-control are both necessary in the preservation of health and in the recovery of health. The depressing and even the ruinous effect of anger, discontent, selfishness, or impurity affects the mind and body negatively, while in contrast, there is a marvelous life-giving power that is found in cheerfulness, unselfishness, and gratitude.

It is the duty of everyone to cultivate cheerfulness, instead of brooding over sorrow and troubles. Many not only make themselves wretched in this way, but they sacrifice health and happiness to a morbid imagination. There are things in their surroundings that are not agreeable, and their countenances wears a continual frown that is more plainly than words and expresses discontent. These depressing emotions are a greater injury health wise, because by hindering the process of digestion they interfere with nutrition. While grief and anxiety cannot remedy a single evil, they can do great harm; but cheerfulness and hope, while they brighten the pathway of others, “Are life unto those who finds them, and health to all their flesh.”
