“You can also think of mindsight as a very special lens that gives us the capacity to perceive the mind with greater clarity than ever before. This lens is something that virtually everyone can develop, and once we have it we can dive deeply into the mental sea inside, exploring our own inner lives and those of others. A uniquely human ability, mindsight allows us to examine closely, in detail and in depth, the processes by which we think, feel, and behave. And it allows us to reshape and redirect our inner experiences so that we have more freedom of choice in our everyday actions, more power to create the future, to become the author of our own story. Another way to put it is that mindsight is the basic skill that underlies everything we mean when we speak of having social and emotional intelligence.”

    How does one defend oneself against the Devil's most effective weapon in Satan's constant fight to end our very existence - doubt? Do you remember the story of how the serpent tricked Eve into eating the apple by making her doubt God's command not to eat the apple? Never for even a fraction of a second doubt your constant need to be a friend to God, and God will in return never doubt His need to be a friend back to you and help you in life. There is no better friend to have than God. How does one be a friend to a symbol of good that one can not touch, see, smell or talk to? All we know about God that is thoroughly documented in the book of Genesis is that He made everything in six days and He then rested on the seventh day. One way for us to be God's friend and to honor and respect God is to copy what God did by working hard for six days by helping God create a better world and then resting ourselves on the final seventh day for a period of not less than 24 hours. Resting means the absence of work. We all need a day off from the weekly grind. To satisfy the minimum spiritual/religious/legal definition of rest consider the following: Rest means to completely cease from all monetary transactions (Stop buying groceries and things!), to stop gossiping about those around you (Be quiet for heavens sake!), to stop traveling to places outside the city in which you live (Put a damper on your travel!), and to stay away from public events such as live concerts (Rest your ears as well!). When you rest for twenty four hours or more following six days of hard work trying to make the world a better place to live, then God will support you and everything you do in life as He feels that you are on his side and are truly trying to be His friend. God will then without doubt help you find purpose and success in life. Many people think observing a day of rest per week is optional. It is not. In fact, refusing to rest one day each week is not only a violation of one of the 10 commandments, but it is a blatant denial of the existence of God as well as an open invitation to Satan which has its own extremely serious unforeseen consequences! A few have asked who wrote this. This is a tough question to answer as the writer's role sometimes frequently changes depending on the writer's wishes. A few have asked about the writer's motivation which is really an unnecessary question as the writer's motivation will become evident.
