It is interesting how powerful the mind is. What’s more interesting is that the mind is not like the face. The face expresses itself publicly and people make immediate judgment about one just by looking at the face. But the real truth is that face is not where the real matter lies. It is within the mind that lays the formation of ones’ true self. Within the mind resides the initiation of decisions, actions, and emotions, and it’s the constant encore of actions past and present. For those of us who enjoy the gift of a creative mind, we notice that with it come the troubles of a bubbly and ever busy imagination. Your thoughts travel far and wide, create images that are yet to be from images of things seen already, and even cause you to live in the reality of the unreal with the attendant satisfaction derived from the former. The more creative you are, the more troublesome your mind becomes.
Sometime ago I watched the stories of some serious offenders who were apprehended and interrogated. One common feature they all possessed was a powerful and creative mind. In the case of a guy who was a serial killer, he skillfully attended to his evil craft and avoided being caught for 30 years, with 10 murders in his trail. He wrote letters to the police and often left mysterious clues for them to solve and still no one could unravel his identity. His mind was obviously being fully engaged in his imagination that, up to the point of being caught, he was still actively enjoying the whole process of being traced for 30 years. Several others as well are undeniably very intelligent men who simply fell for the overpowering of their minds and let it totally out of control.
