Watch out for intruders

You can keep unwelcome visitors from stealing your peace.

Once, as a student, I was in a very poor financial situation. I realized that I had come to dread all the mail that I received. Everything in an official envelope seemed a demand for money, often because I had failed to make a payment on time. Every piece of personal mail also seemed demanding of me, since I owed the writer a reply. I found myself taking the mail from my mailbox and piling it at the back of my desk, delaying opening it because of my anxiety. This, of course, delayed my responses and payments, and it was indeed an unpleasant circle.

When I was in this rut, the following idea came to my rescue: "Stand porter at the door of thought. Admitting only such conclusions as you wish realized in bodily results, you will control yourself harmoniously" (Science and Health, p. 392).
