I found this on a magazine site I follow; Parabola.  It is ringing truer and truer for me now ...more than ever in my life, I am connected to my thoughts..


H.H. The Dalai Lama from sapru on flickr.(*)

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.

—Guatama Buddha, Dhammapada
