Isaac Luria This kid's inspiring words make me think about how I want to "brainwash" my own kids. How about you?

That's a little brain washing the whole world could use. Religion is one element that can bring some together, but set aside religion and each of us can still respect the other.

We should ALL be so lovingly fortunate as to have parents that lead by example, that teach us as he was taught. This world would not be in the mess it is, if we all had parents like that. I include, most certainly, the parents of the one percent whose children could, had they teaching like this, change the world forever virtually by themselves. That is one fortunate, wise and needed, young man.

It was just before I finally said good bye to the church of my childhood.

I was sitting in adult Sunday school class. I looked at the others, looking at the teacher, soaking it all in without the questions that obsessed me. I thought, "They're all brainwashed."

But you know what, my brain could use a good washing.

Too many hurtful memories that serve no purpose. Too many negative thoughts eager to rise. Too many instilled ideas that I'm just not
good enough.

"Lord, you know, I could use a good brain washing."

Truth is, I think we all could.

Smart kid... It's too bad a lot of other kids weren't brain washed along the way!
