BLURB

When reality hits you with the unreal, the unbelievable, the unexpected, the only problem is within the mind. A simple shift in perception will alleviate your cognitive dissonance. When you hold two opposing ideals within your mind, they tend to endlessly wage war, damaging the surrounding thoughts. The solution is easy, point the two thoughts away from each other, and towards a new enemy outside of the realm of your beliefs. For some, there will always be a struggle. But some choose to free their mind of its struggle, and instead, swim within the greater balance of all things. While standing their ground, what others may see as a struggle is simply what must be done. There is no doubt here. No conflicting thoughts. What once was cognitive dissonance is now resolved into cognitive harmony. [Mychaelangelo Norkus]
