Electric Currents And An ‘Emotional Awakening’ For One Man With Autism

Reminds me of Flowers for Algernon. The book poignantly reveals the tragedy of getting what we wanted and realizing that it isn’t what we wanted. The grass looks greener on the other side, but who said green grass is what will make you happy?  You can cross the fence and get to the green grass, only to realize that it isn’t everything you thought it would be. It doesn’t satisfy… and it’s a tragedy.

Lesson to be learned: You don’t get happiness by changing your circumstances, you get happiness by changing your heart.
