Sunshine Psychology MOTIVATION AND BREATHING By The Editor "How can I tell when opportunity 'knocks' at my door?" Answer:' We would advise that you do not pay too much attention to the quotation, "Opportunity knocks at every man's door." The sentence is very misleading and elusive. O'pportunitv is a very important in- centive in Motivation. Its intrinsic and extrinsic properties are well-de- fined in criminology. Criminally in- clined persons "watch for opporttmi- ties" so that they may carry outacts of deception and dishonesty. But we assume that you are not interested in overt acts and that your letter refers to the opportunity for worth-while achievement, honesty, and a high so~ cial standard. In the finn analysis, it is possible that "opportunity"--a fit time--de- pends largely upon the correct use of the faculties known as intelligence and discrimination. A keen intellect is necessary if one hopes to distingtiish "opportunity", and make the best of the advantages that time and circum- stances afford. Perhaps there is no organ of the human body more important than the nose for "sensing opportunit.y". How is your nose ? This questmn may seem irrelevant. It isn't! For exam- pie: The nose reaction often stimu- lates much curiosity. Curious people usually have "sensitive noses." A smell of burning immediately suggests a fire! As an organ the nose ~s equipped with a very delicate mechan- ism consisting of turbinates, nerves, and minute blood vessels. If this mechanism becomes defective, "cor- roded" or infected with disease, the individual usually suffers not only physical pain but the "mental equip- ment" is retared from receiving much of its external stimuli. No one denies the importance of "biological influ- ences" on human thinking. There- fore, it is not putting too much strain on human credulity to assume that the nose, throat, adenoids and tonsils when infected, also influence the men~ tal processes. Most persons, who give such mat- ters attention, realize that it is diffi- cult to "concentrate" or direct ideas and thoughts into a continuity, when they are suffering from "head colds" or other acute respiratory inflamma- tion. There is a Hindu belief that action is the purifier of intelligence, that is, by mental and physical action the body and mind eliminates waste and is kept clean and free from tox- ins, infections and the residues of stagnation. Therefore, to keep the faculties alert, the intelligence keen, the mind in "good humor" and re- sponsive to the worth-while oppor- tunities that our social system affords, attention should be given to personal habits, to breathing for health and the acquisition of psychic stimuli. Knowledge and wisdom to be ac- quired and developed from the pro- cesses of thinking needs opportunity for expression and it is in this field of human activity that man excells above the activities of all other ani- mals.
