Sam came to Mr. Counselor’s first conference on Breaking free. He met some guests seated around a round table. He greeted then, he was received warmly. Soon after other guests appeared and Mr. Counselor started by sharing his view about the mind.
The mind is likened to a market place where a whole lot of people go to buy and sell and go out once all transaction is done. Come to look at it critically, the market place accommodates both the righteous and cruel sellers and buyers. So is our minds, it is a marketplace for but the evil thoughts and the righteous thoughts.
Every modern marketplace is deemed to have a security man at the gate who selectively gives preference to who goes into the marketplace to buy and sell. The preference given to people who go to the market place is often based on appearance (neat or rough, hard-looking or business looking), the type of business intended, and the kind of goods in stock.
The selection based on preference is so important. Select what goes into your heart through the eye, mouth, and ear!. Set a watch on your ears, eyes, and mouth.
The mind is the laboratory for the formulation and processing of both good and evil thoughts. Guide thy heart with all diligence. Mind what you hear, mind what you see, mind what you eat.
Mind what you hear
We live in a world where what sells, trends and attracts people the most are immoral songs, slangs, and talks. It is almost impossible to go through the day and escape such songs, slangs and talks. But the good news is that: ”we have the power to minimize the level of such which goes into our heart”. We can mind what we hear by staying clear of the place, friends, news that injects such unholy language into our hearts. Perhaps it’s time to get new friends, change your route or passage to your home, change, unsubscribe or even block some channels that you listen to. Remember the race is to break free from all limiting habits.
Mind what you see
The eye, the most sensitive and powerful organ in our body have the power to control the whole body. Sounds funny right?. Here is why:
Any person without an eye is handicapped and can rarely do anything without the help of others. Such a person will be dependent on others and thus, there is a need to break free. It is good to note that we learn faster with visuals, what we see stick tighter. This is why it is almost harder to break free from pornography. You see it once and the picture sticks forever.

Mind what you eat
Hey, don’t even try to smell. Yes, this is so true for people seeking information on how to break free. The moment you smell it, an attractive force pulls you on to taste it, and this is all you need to find yourself deep inside it eating it.
Runaway from where you can smell the flames from smoking if you are running away for cigarettes, increase the speed at where you can smell booze if you are running away from alcohol. Take to you heed from free there is too much food and there is a propensity for you to overfeed. Remember, if you smell it, you will taste it and before you know it, you will be gulping it. Your health matters, your weight matters!.
Mind what your heart process
The living word (the Bible ) says: whatsoever is good, whatsoever is holy, whatsoever is of good report meditate on them. Evil thoughts will always flow into our hearts daily, alas, only the dead are free from evil thoughts. Lol!.
The good news is that when they come, you have the power to trash them and focus on greater things.
The task at hand matters,
It must not be a delay, focus on it
Your vision matters
See it, not bottles, not porn
Your pursuit is very important.
