The mental soundness that God gives

Years ago I visited a facility for people diagnosed as mentally ill. One day at lunchtime I heard a ruckus upstairs, and since there was no staff around, I ran upstairs to discover a young man angrily overturning chairs. When he saw me, he made a beeline to where I was standing at the top of the stairs.

But just a step or two before he reached me, he abruptly stopped in front of a glass case on the wall and raised his clenched fists over his head to break the glass. Since there was no one around to help and I had only seconds to react, I simply yelled, “God is Love!” 

Divine Mind alone governs man.
