We are what we think...
All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make our world. -Buddha
Often we find pearls of wisdom from many different people and cultures. When I first read this I wasn't sure that I agreed with Buddha's statement. We don't always act on what we are thinking, and thankfully so or many of us would be in a world of trouble.
However, I believe there is some truth here, and most certainly something to be taken away from this quote.
On the negative side, too often we are hit with "What was I thinking" so we should guard our thoughts and be aware when what we are thinking is something with which we would not want make our world.
The converse is also true, and if our consciousness is filled with good, kind and loving thoughts, we can indeed make a better world for ourselves.
Have a safe and happy Fourth of July, everyone!
