The Potions of Truth

We live in an age of pharmaceutical explosion. There seems to be a pill, a capsule, or a bottled concoction for everything from the "blahs" to birth control. Television, radio, the printed page, keep up their mesmeric drumbeat, extolling the so-called virtues of this or that material remedy.

It all sounds so easy. Swallow a pill and presto! all is well. The pain, stiffness, or tension is gone. But is it? Granted, the surface evidence may subside. But is the basic cause of the trouble removed? Isn't it still lying deep in human thought ready to manifest itself over and over again until it is destroyed in the right way?
