The mind is powerful. It is more powerful than any weapon ever invented - governments, societies and foundations have spent millions to try to influence it.
A private inner thought can put you on top of the world, or make you want to hide away from everyone and every thing.
Our mind is where we experience our relationship with Jesus, make choices, try to make sense of what we see, what we hear, taste and feel. It is also the place where we judge ourselves.
