The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts.
Many people believe that their thoughts don’t really matter. They think that their thoughts don’t matter as long as they don’t act on their negative thoughts. What they fail to realize though is that everyone’s thoughts contain certain energy patterns. Physicists are now proving that your thoughts actually do have power; they are not just harmless little things that don’t matter.
Thoughts are forces.
Ralph Waldo Trine
Every single thought you have can be assessed in
terms of whether it strengthens or weakens you.
Heraclitus knew this many centuries ago. He tells us that your thoughts have an effect on your soul. He goes on to say, “The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you choose, what you think and what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny…it is the light that guides your way.” Your thoughts are much more important to your character development than you may suspect.
Be careful of your thoughts;
they are the beginning of your acts.
The whole dignity of man is in thought.
Labor then to think right.
Thought precedes action. Many scientists today believe that if you continue to think about something, what you think about will eventually find a way to manifest itself in your life. If this is true, it means that what you think about is extremely important. It has already been proven that your thoughts control your emotions, thus to control your emotions, which every warrior must do, you must control your thoughts. Controlling your thoughts is the ultimate test of your self-discipline. Control your thoughts; control your destiny.
When we direct our thoughts properly,
we can control our emotions.
W. Clement Stone
You should keep your mind pure, for what a person things,
he becomes – this is the eternal mystery.
The Maitri Upanishad
Understand that what you think about expands.
