What is amazing to me is the power of the mind. It grabs onto something, exaggerates the situation, and then tenaciously repeats the situation over and over again until you start believing the nonsense that the mind is asserting. You know, if you listen to the same lie repeatedly, it eventually becomes an accepted untruth. Think about that for a moment. The lie is still a lie, but you’ve heard the mind repeat it so often that you come to accept the lie as if it were a truth. Folks, that’s scary! A lie is a lie. And an untruth remains an untruth no matter how many times it is repeated. But the mind, over time, convinces you that the untruth is a truth.
