Be Careful of Your Thoughts Today- Boyace Van Harlan Jr., PhD

“The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny – it is the light that guides your way.”
Heraclitus

Watch your thought life today. Today with purpose think of only those things that you would be proud to see the light of imageday! You are what you think about all day long. Think on things that are lovely and pure! Set your mind on things that are above and not below. You alone are the “gate keeper” to  your soul. Guard your eye, mouth, and ear gates with all diligence!

Cognitive Health- Boyace Van Harlan Jr., PhD

Archives of General Psychiatry May 2012 reports that meaningful activities are linked to cognitive health. A study involving the elderly found that participants without dementia who reported higher levels of purpose in life like working in ministry, the health field etc., exhibited better cognitive function over time compared to others with less purpose, even as plaques and tangles- the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease- accumulated in their brains. We are fearfully and wonderfully made. God sustains those involved in a higher cause.
