I stumbled on this quote yesterday and, I don’t know if I’m comfortable with it.
“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”
Let me expand on that.
What if I’m thinking about my dog. Do I become a dog then? No.
If I’m thinking about the westher. Do I become weather then? No.
On the other hand.
If I’m thinking about my dog I can be very loving against the dog. If that is the state of mind I’m in.
If I’m thinking about the weather I can be either glad or sad depending my state of Mind.
My thinking is creating my feelings. I’m not becoming my thinking.
Do You see the difference?
My thinking is only creating my feelings. No more. No less.
Thoughts about that?
