The Brain Code




I am amazed at the power which can be yielded by the mind


I have the same mind, each day when I awake


I am influenced and sometimes changed by the environment


Yet, its core remains


My brain causes me to see different things and think different thoughts


I then react and communicate in different ways


How are you today?


I’m good


Hanging in there (but there’s little to grasp)


You don’t even want to know (got some bad news but you and I aren’t close enough for me to say)


Some days, I wake up with an acute expectation that something totally wonderful will happen that day


My belief in the coming pleasantness makes my heart joyful


I leap out of bed


Joy remains even when night falls and the ordinariness of the day continues


Nothing happened


Other days, when I awaken, I feel a heaviness


My feet seem shod in cement


Its source is unknown to me


I followed my same nighttime routine


I am always careful not to deviate from my routine


Lest I am doing or not doing something to somehow cause the heaviness to descend


No deviation, no misstep


Yet, the heaviness greets me as soon as I realize it is the dawn of a new day


Nothing happened


Even when the sun shines brightly


Even when good news comes


I feel the heaviness


It feels eerily similar to my toiling away in the factory years ago


Faced with an eight-hour shift in humid conditions


From midnight till eight am


Each step I took required super-human strength


I had big plans and so the weight, while heavy, was more easily borne


I did not know when it would end but took solace in knowing it would


There is no set pattern to help me determine whether I will face joy or heaviness


I have tried in vain for years to crack the code


My eyes open and my brain decides
