Taken from "As a Man Thinketh"

Anxiety quickly demoralizes the whole body, and it lays it open to the entrance of desease; while impure thoughts, even if not physically indulged, will soon shatter the nervous system.

Thought is the font of action, life, and manifestation; make the fountain pure, and all will be pure.

I am home, with a new outlook on bringing on my own anxiety. A friend of mine let me borrow a book called As a Man Thinketh. I am more than half way through the book.

I am tired of beating myself up, and I AM looking forward to now. The realization of being the happiness that I desire. I will share a few more quotes on the book.

Man is made, or unmade by himself

We are anxious to improve our circumstances, but unwilling to improve ourselves; there fore we remain bound.

How many times do you think about situations that you wish you can change, but either afraid to, or do not want to?

  1. There are two kinds of anxiety: Anxiety about the future (fear) and anxiety about the past catching up with us (terror). As well, anxiety is endogenous (internal) or exogenous (external), diffuse or specific. Externalized diffuse anxiety about the past is terrorISM; and we're all suffering from a war on terror (understood as a holy war against hell and the devil). Agoraphobia is the WORST: It is "separation anxiety" (separation from our own body / death) and the "great unknown" (heaven). Religion is both the disease and the cure; though, Eastern religion suggests "embracing the fear" (by NOT THINKING about it).
