Have you ever had thoughts, feelings or acted in ways that were unacceptable to yourself but felt powerless to control? The purpose of this post is to help you find ways to manage your mind so that you can live your life more in accordance with what your own judgment says is best for you.
As we grow up, we gradually become aware of the many things in the external world which are largely beyond our ability to control. These include other people in general and most events in our lives. Initially this is difficult to accept, but a more shocking realization is that there are many things about ourselves that we seem powerless to control.

Last weekend while breaking my fast in a fine hotel restaurant, a young Caucasian couple made a very noticeable entrance and sat at a nearby table. Both were at least 6 feet tall (tall by Asian standards), and attractive looking. She wore short shorts and a clinging tank-top, revealing her well tanned bronze skin. He wore a sleeveless shirt so his muscular arms, both of which were covered with eye catching tattoos, were plainly visible. His presentation was topped off with a blond mohawk haircut.
As two waiters rushed to attend to them, I got the feeling they quite enjoyed the attention and were completely oblivious to the fact that they were dressed in a manner quite inappropriate for Asian culture!
