With a radio, when you change the channel, you change what you hear. Your mind can be likened to a special radio show. You are the producer of the show. You choose what messages are broadcast. A standard radio offers limited programs; your mind offers unlimited choices. You have the ability to decide what mental channel you want to listen to right now. Think about the worthwhile mental channels from which you can choose. You can create new ones at any moment you wish. When you aren't satisfied with the channel you are listening to, just choose a mental channel that is worth choosing.
