6th and 7th Senses


Many people know about the commonly spoken five senses – sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste, but they are often do not discuss the sixth and seventh senses…conscience and sense of humor.

We are confronted daily with the choice between doing what is right or what is wrong, and every decision we make is based on the result of a feelings fight. To do the right thing, we must have this internal argument with our conscience, and we must emerge the victor. Your conscience has a voice, a voice that represents the metamorphosis of insight words from parents, teachers, and advisors through the years into what is today your voice.

 I am forever present

residing in your head

silently persuading you

to do the right thing, instead.

People of all ages and cultures respond to humor. Laughing can lower your blood pressure, reduce stress, and trigger the release of endorphins which are our natural pain relievers. Laughter is a vital source in maintaining your overall well-being. Make friends with at least one silly person, or even better, be one. You know the type of person I mean. The type of person who laughs more, criticizes less, and is generally friendlier than other people.

 As my heartless mirror reflects the years

I’ve come to the realization

that my attitude has opted

to join a younger generation.


I admit my youth has faded;

It just seems as though time took it,

But I do not intend to act my age…

Just because I suddenly look it!
