What You Don’t Know May Be Killing You
When American troops liberated the death camp survivors, one single man was found untouched by the six years of miserable circumstances.
He had lived on the same starvation diet, slept n the same airless and disease-ridden barracks as everyone else, but without the least least physical or mental deterioration.
This miraculous survivor had no control over his outward circumstances. In fact he shared the same misery inflicted on millions of Jewish.
What was his secret?
He told the author( Return from Tomorrow) and psychiatrist, Dr George Ritchey, “ I had to decide…
whether to let myself hate the soldiers who had done this…I had seen, too often,what hate could do to people’s minds and bodies.
Hate had just killed the six people who mattered most to me in the world.
I decided then that I would spend the rest of my life,
whether it was a few days or many years,
loving every person I came into contact with.”
This man immediately went to work with the liberators, working fifteen to sixteen hours per day
serving his fellow death camp survivors.
Dr Colbert observed in his book: What You Don’t Know Might Be Killing You:
“ He had learned the secret that Negative Thoughts Lead to Negative Words, Which Lead to Negative Attitudes and Emotions.”
