Peace Of Mind

he does not possess enough for his own wants but that others possess more.
The time has come to say: "I am no longer going to be interested in how much power or wealth another man possesses so long as I can attain sufficient for the dignity and security of my family and myself. I am going to set my goals for myself rather than borrow them from others. I refuse any longer to destroy my peace of mind by striving only for money; I will also judge myself in the scale of goodness and culture."
We have learned that unexpressed emotions ultimately have their vengeance in the form of mental and physical illness. This truth illuminates for us the problem of achieving peace of mind in the face of bereavement and grief.
Dr. Erich Lindemann, in clinical work at the Massachusetts General Hospital with hundreds of grief patients, has uncovered the basic fact that to repress real feelings of grief may lead to morbid reactions later. Dr. Lindemann's patients included some who developed severe illness or depressions years after the loss of a loved one. Amazing cures of the mental and physical ills resulted when patients were persuaded to express the,pain and sorrow that should normally have found outlet before.
How absurd is that notion which has gained currency in modern society that men and women must repress emotional outbursts. It is not those outbursts but the avoidance of them which scars the fabric of the soul.
The first law, then, which should be followed in the time of the
loss of a loved one is: give way to as much grief as you actually feel. Do
not be ashamed of your emotions; released now, they will be the instrument of your later healing.
The discoveries of psychiatry-of how essential it is to express rather than to repress grief, to talk about one's loss with friends and companions, to move step by step from inactivity to activity again -remind us that the ancient teachers of Judaism had an intuitive wisdom about human nature which our more sophisticated age has
