How elastic the human mind is!
It’s changing and changeable, contracting and contractible, expanding and expandable, a true wonder of nature!
Unfortunately, it’s also elastic in its habits, obsessively returning to them, building their negativity, over and over and over again.
Just when we think we’ve dealt with an issue, moved past a hurdle, forgiven someone, conquered guilt and fear, or grown at last, we find our minds taking that same old trip down that well-traveled, all too familiar negative spiral instead, again and again and again!
What can we do about this insanity, for insanity it is, if insanity really means doing the same thing over and over and over again, but expecting different results?
We must constantly, elastically, over and over and over again, give up our minds to the Great Higher Mind, the One that changes nature, and the One that makes nature willing to change!
