One who controls the mind is more powerful than one who controls only the body.
As children, we spend the first few years of our life learning how to control our bodies.
We learn to stand, to walk, and to run.
Later in life, we learn to count, to do math, and to figure things out logically.
Most of us have even learned to control our emotions, and to remain calm when everyone else is frantically rushing to meet a deadline, or to consciously choose to maintain a positive focus when things look rather negative.
With each level of control we master, we find our lives becoming more and more enjoyable.
Affirm: I am able to stay calm and centered in any situation, and respond with love, compassion, and strength.
