“Our life depends on the kind of thoughts we nurture. If our thoughts are peaceful, calm, meek, and kind, then that is what our life is like. If our attention is turned to the circumstances in which we live, we are drawn into a whirlpool of thoughts and can have neither peace nor tranquility.”
― Elder Thaddeus of Vitovnica
I have heard this said in many ways. What you think about or talk about is what you bring about. Actions follow thoughts. When I practiced Buddhism, and still today when I meditate, this idea was the key.
I wish you tranquility of heart and mind.
