Recently, I read a story to my son called ' Malala's Magic Pencil ' and I found it very inspiring.
If I had a magic pencil I would draw a world where the crime rate was plummeting
I would draw a world where people lived safely in their own homes without fear of abuse.
Peace in the world starts with peace in the mind. I would draw a world where people slow down to think and reconsider before committing malicious acts. I would draw the minds of potential villains and bullies being reformed; rewiring taking place where people are proud to be in touch with their human sides. I wish for emotional control to be so powerful to enable resistance to cruel and harmful behaviour. Evolution could progress so well that we humans develop such a high degree of emotional intelligence that our own thoughts would not cause harm to us or others, instead they would enable our best selves to flourish.
I want to speak on behalf of those who have lived in fear and have been controlled by the negative thoughts of others.
Let us raise our voices together in chorus to oppose those harmful, destructive and aggressive thoughts. There are no current world wars. The wars continue in peoples' minds. With my Magic Pencil I would draw mind tools to motivate and guide people to challenge their harmful thoughts. My dream and passion is to see a world where people want to refine and condition their minds. I can visualise peoples' minds resisting impulsive harmful thoughts thus preventing horrific acts.
I have been reading the remarkable work of Dr Norman Vincent Peale who was an author priest. He wrote the bestseller ' The Power of Positive thinking' He also wrote Thought Conditioners in magazine ' Guidepost'.
I have decided to start a project called ' Thought Conditioners' to enhance and guide our next generation with emotional intelligence.
The purpose of these tools would be to prevent aggressive behavior, bullying and intimidating behaviour.
