"Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." (Matthew 6:34)
"Don't worry." Sounds so simple, doesn't it? In Matthew 6:34, Jesus is encouraging Christians to live in the present. It has been said that depression is pain from the past, and anxiety is pain from the future. In order to live a happy life, we must learn to live in the present. Learning to live this way-the way Jesus prescribes-requires a change in our thinking. In order for this to happen, an understanding of the inner working of our brains is required.
The human brain is comprised of two components-a thinking brain and a feeling brain. Depression, anxiety, PTSD, and a host of other mental disorders can be traced back to a conflict between the thinking brain and the feeling brain.
Make it to Midnight illustrates that each of us has two sides to our psyche that are often in conflict. Through his research, Jim Denning discovered that we not only have two components to our psyche, we actually have two brains. Jim's goal for this book is to explain the anatomy of that conflict and provide its readers with the tools necessary to achieve a better quality of life and, ultimately, inner peace.
