Unchain Your Brain!
Release Illogical Thoughts!
If you have problems you cannot seem to solve or relationships you cannot seem to work out, you should get this book. People unknowingly lock their brains in chains. As Wetherill makes clear in HOW TO SOLVE PROBLEMS AND PREVENT TROUBLE, people's behavioral problems are caused by their emotionally charged commands to themselves. You can "unthink" your way out of problems.
Introduction:
"Whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." Those words are often quoted but seldom understood. What they mean is that we think our way into trouble. Most of us are proud of our brainpower, but we are not proud of our ability to get into trouble. That is something we do inadvertently until we understand. The process by which we do it is extremely subtle. Lust, for example, is an emotion that has the effect of driving a person in a wrong direction while reducing his intelligence. He is busy with consideration of what he wants. Therefore, he does not realize what he is doing to his mind. As everybody who understands the law of absolute right is aware, he is installing distortions of logic. What is a distortion of logic? It is a wrong idea accepted as a right idea, an untruth accepted as a truth, an emotional command to self. Once installed, it operates as if by compulsion. "If ever I get the chance," a young person might say to himself, "I'll certainly take advantage of it!" He or she may suppose he is engaged in harmless but pleasant reverie; instead, he is moving into a mental trap. He may assert that by today's standards sexuality is no sin, and he may argue that fantasizing about it has no really harmful effects, but such considerations are beside the point. The point is that he has deprived himself of volition on that topic.
