The Remedy for Pollution
One of the great problems facing the populated areas of the earth today is that of pollution of air and water. The impurities discharged from industrial and other sources have rendered the air almost unfit to breathe, and marine life is dying because of the poisonous condition of many waters. While it is gratifying that these problems have been recognized and that biologists, chemists, and government agencies are seeking a solution, much work remains to be done to prevent pollution.
Related to this problem is another phase of pollution even more dangerous and as yet not completely recognized or faced, namely, the pollution of the mental atmosphere of thought in our world. Evidence of this is seen in crime, rioting, resistance to law, injustice, hatred, sensuality, and disease. These evils abroad in the world are the direct result of poisonous, evil, undisciplined thought.
A remedy for these ills of mankind is right at hand. Action is always the result of thought; and when thought is corrected and controlled, evil and destructive action ceases accordingly. Each thought of every individual everywhere goes forth into the mental atmosphere and has a bearing on what happens in the world. Thoughts cannot be seen with the eye, but they can be felt; and their results are evident everywhere we look. Where love and brotherhood reign in thought, peace and happiness prevail. Where hatred and selfishness predominate, crime and destruction are seen. The answers, then, to the woes of mankind lie first in the recognition of the mental nature of all action and then in the consecrated effort to discipline, purify, and elevate individual thought.
