Thoughts to Destiny

The first two quotes deal with how we affect our own destiny, the third one deals with how we affect others. I like the latter one best because we never know how we are touching someone’s life, so we must be on best behaviour at all times. No one is perfect but we should strive to please our Creator always. The latter quote also reminds me to be careful with whom I surround myself and my family. “Birds of a feather, flock together”. If I do not wish (or do not wish my child) to behave like the people with whom we surround ourselves, then they do not belong as part of our every day life.

Watch your thoughts, they become your words;
Watch your words, they become your actions;
Watch your actions, they become your habits;
Watch your habits, they become your character;
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.

The thought manifests as the word;
The word manifests as the deed;
The deed develops into habit;
And habit hardens into character.
So watch the thought and its ways with care,
And let it spring from love
Born out of concern for all beings…
As the shadow follows the body,
As we think, so we become.

A powerful destiny will affect the character of others.
A powerful character will affect the habits of others.
A powerful habit will affect the actions of others.
A powerful action will affect the words of others.
A powerful word will affect the thoughts of others.
