Not afraid to think

Sometimes it looks like the ears of a lot of teenagers are a little different from those of other human beings. They contain something that's round, and most of the time black, from which a thin wire exits, goes down the neck, and enters the clothing through the collar. Since this thing is usually there, it's almost as if it were part of the ear's anatomy. But no. It's actually a headphone that's connected to a radio, a tape player, or a CD player. It's an inseparable companion, all the time.

To go around with a Walkman and enjoy music is cool. But it's also cool for people to listen to their own thoughts. And if they do, they'll hear some amazing things. Maybe they'll even hear the divine intelligence of the universe — God. Maybe they'll find out that God speaks to every one of His children. Because God is Mind, and we are like Mind. And since we are, we're always open to what is good. We're thinking with every step we take.

Today, information is transmitted to us at ever-increasing speeds. Every minute, new activities come up to fill our time. They come so fast that it's hard to keep up with all of them.
