Deep in the mountain of Harlan County
Employed by the Cumberland coal company
The pay is short, the days are long
But our labor union laws are coming on strong
So I drink this whiskey for my throat
Wear my hard hat and weathered coat
Early every morning I stand in line
Waiting to work these Kentucky coal mines…
(Kentucky Coal Miner — Aaron Watson)
A coal miner who had Coal Workers’ Pneumoconiosis (CWP), also known as black lung disease or black lung was being interviewed on ABC news. The disease is caused by long exposure to coal dust. It is common in coal miners and others who work with coal and is the worst of the lung cancers. The dying man said to the interviewer while taking a respite from the pumping sounds of an oxygen assistant breathing mechanism: “If I could take off this oxygen mask and return to the mines today, I would! Coal Mining is my life!”
His daddy was a coal miner. His grand daddy a coalminer. And, gosh darn it, he was going to follow in their footsteps. What I failed to mention was that both his grandfather and his father had both died of the same fatal disease. Still, the man being interviewed wore the proud hat of someone who would gladly take his hard-earned death sentence.
This scenario of lifestyles being passed from generation to generation reminds me of “poverty mentality.” Feeling poor and never touching anything that magically turns to gold is not something we just magically get. They typically are handed down to us.
However, the impoverished wise man or woman, at some point, realizes that he or she has no need to accept a poverty sentence from generations past. Your mind is the master of the body and also the master of the future. If change is going to come from somewhere, it must come from where creation begins: in the mind.
Ernest Holmes, who wrote the Science of the Mind, assures us that we are all born—not with the plagues of our fathers and forefathers—but with the potential of a Co-creator, albeit a prosperous reflection of God, our spiritual Father. This is your choice and will always be yours to choose:
Do I want to live according to the laws and reproductive genes of the flesh, or do I choose to see myself as created in the image of God?
I choose the latter and you can do. As I had come from a poor mentality and an equally poor family, I know the feeling of expecting to lose, expecting for the flow of money to eventually dry up, and stocking up for the future. At some point I had to throw away my old thinking and don the ideas of the Divine.
