"Keeping A Sound Mind"
How to evaluate your mental health:
  1. Are you happy?
     A. Happiness is a symptom that
        things are going well.
     B. Do not ignore unhappiness
        /// Seek its cause & gain the
            courage to right the
            conditions which caused
            the trouble
     C. The essential task of
        life is to adjust to anything
        & anything that comes &
        happiness or unhappiness
        is merely an index of the
        degree of success or 
        failure one is having in
        making such adjustments.
  2. Have You Breadth of Vision?
     A. Breadth of vision comes from
        a true evaluation of each
        experience & relating it
        to all others which
        have preceeded it.
     B. Narrowness no matter
        how cleverly cloaked under
        the guise of virtue, is a
        sign of weakness, cowardice,
        or lack of experience
  3. Can You Do Things Easily
     & Smoothly
     A. Bodily activities express
        personality better than
        anything you make think
        or feel inwardly
