The intensity of the inner feeling is the dominating factor here. A sudden but intense feeling of hatred or resentment or fear may cause tragic physical circumstances, for example.
A sudden and intense exaltation, however, WILL have the same immediate and literally astounding but opposite physical effect. That is, pure joy, even of brief duration, can literally change the direction of a life.
Between these extremes lie all the other colors and hues of inner feeling. A variety of poor or negative feelings, however, of fairly low intensity, can add up to a general negative emotional climate, which projects itself outward into physical reality.
These negative feelings will be translated in physical terms. It does you little good to know that physical symptoms or inadequate physical surroundings are symbolic unless you realize that the inner situation can be changed.
Now it APPEARS to you that a difference is worked when you exchange a poor physical symbol for a constructive one. The change of course comes BEFORE this in the inner self. The physical being simply uses the physical system as a checking board.
It must be realized that the physical conditions are NOT permanent, but ever changing. To imagine otherwise is to become HYPNOTIZED by the physical symbols.
Each day should be considered a new day.
Ruburt should not think for example: ‘I have had these symptoms for such and such a time.’ This reinforces the idea of permanency.
The day should be considered as a psychic rebirth.
The self that you know is but one fragment of your entire identity. These fragment selves are not strung together, however, like beads of a string. They are more like the various skins of an onion, or segments of an orange, all connected through the one vitality and growing out into various realities while springing from the same source.

“Don’t film if you can live without filming.
Don’t film if you want to say something — just say it or write it.
Don’t film if you already knew your message before filming — just become a teacher. Don’t try to save the world. Don’t try to change the world. Better if your film will change you.
Don’t film something you just hate. Don’t film something you just love. Film when you aren’t sure.
You need your brain both before and after filming, but don’t use your brain during filming. Just film using your instinct.
Find your own rules. There is always something that only you can film and nobody else.”

The World’s Quietest Room
Scientists at Minneapolis’ Orfield Labs created their own soundless room, an anechoic chamber. Their studies have found that when putting subjects within the chamber, they begin to hallucinate within 30 minutes.
With an average quiet room having a sound level of 30 decibels, the anechoic chamber’s sound level is -9 decibels. The ceiling, floor, and walls of the chamber absorb sound rather than have it bounce off as normal objects do. The chamber is so quiet that the subjects can even hear their own organs functioning.
Although extremely interesting, the experience is rather unpleasant. Not one subject has spent more than 45 minutes in the chamber alone. Leaving a person to only their thoughts, the chamber could drive them insane.

For years it’s been assumed that the onset of a catastrophic mental illness would result in an inevitable and irreversible downward spiral, and for lots of folks that’s true. But a fairly new school of thought, called the Recovery Movement, has emerged to challenge this notion at its core. It contends that even the most serious mental illnesses, like schizophrenia, can actually be beat. (via Keeping the Demons at Bay | VICE United States)
