Uncluttered thinking liberates

Putting Away "childish things"

The family was on the move again, and there was packing to be done. A well-worn, very tired toy was held up, accompanied by a questioning look—was it to be carried along or discarded? Without hesitation the little child answered firmly, "Throw it away! I'm too grown-up for that now."

If only all of us would express such quick decisiveness and an equal willingness to acknowledge what thoughts, habits, attitudes from our past should be discarded! We would be healthier and happier. We would be making room for increased consciousness of the spiritual.

The opinions, theories, fears, and forebodings of others may have left negative impressions on our thought over the years. An early planting of bad seeds, where only the good should have been sown, may be limiting our potential or robbing us of our rightful heritage of health.
