The Power of the Mind

Your mind will always serve you when you need it to,
By bringing memories of times you long for and happy days long gone…
It also possesses another power, the power to protect you,
From the deepest horrors life has forced you to face,
The tragic molestation, the horrible and monstrous actions you’ve taken to defend yourselfFrom the monsters that walk this earth.
It is fascinating as well as scary the  power the mind possesses, to what extent it can make or destroy a person, It’s manipulative and persuasive ability…

To what depth evil can be conceived in it,
despicable acts, some beyond human reasoning.
I once heard that, no one is born evil, they choose to be who or what they are,
which means that “our choices define us“.

Some people mistake morality for religion and some the other way round.
my being moral doesn’t mean I am religious,
it simply means i am ‘human’ in the literal sense,
it means have the an intelligence that allows me to distinguish good from evil
and act on the good while eschewing the evil.
It simply means I am ‘strong‘ enough to suppress the demon when it rears its head.

While one may be moral in the eyes of the world, though,
They may be satisfying the evil in them in the darkest closet in their room,
which brings back the saying, “never judge a book by its cover“.
It is sad that even though most people know this today, just a few actually live by it…
A multitude of people fall victim of this negligence because of their levity and insouciance,
and unfortunately some never recover from the aftermath of their error,
while some just never come out the other end.

The way my mind works is beyond me
I mean, I think of some things and connect some dots and
I wonder how I could have made the connection or come up with such brilliant idea…
This same mind, that makes beautiful things, helps you imagine ways to be useful, ways to be successful…
this same mind is as frail as it is powerful.
Easily swayed to the dark side when ‘will’ is weak.
This is when the evil, the demon in a person can no longer be tamed,
thus sociopaths and pure evil are born…
And sometimes just a little darkness nurtured in an innocent mind quickly sucks out the thousand little burning lights in a person till there is no more light in them.
All because, the will to fight it was too weak.

Note that, the mind works the way you allow it to.
Note that, what you allow is what will continue…
And note that, your mind is your greatest weapon against evil and your mightiest tool for good.
