If you asked me, “How can I take control over my pancreas?” I would give you a similar answer. You can’t. It functions outside of your control unless you totally destroy your body through unhealthy living habits. Then you can destroy your pancreas too, along with the rest. But even if you have excellent living habits, you can still have pancreatic cancer—regardless of your best efforts.
Few things are actually within our control, when we really look at it. Our circulatory system, our heartbeat, our digestion. We can’t control any of it. But we can control our conscious mind—our thinking. We can choose our thoughts. Those are under our control. And that control makes the difference between a happy and an unhappy life.
