We are what we think

All that we are arises with our thoughts.

 

With our thoughts we make the world.

 

Speak or act with an impure mind, and trouble will follow you, as the wheel follows the ox that draws the cart.

 

We are what we think

 

All that we are arises with our thoughts.

 

With our thoughts we make the world.

 

Speak or act with a pure mind, and Happiness will follow you, as your shadow, unshakable.

 

How can a troubled mind understand the way?

 

Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own thoughts, unguarded.

 

But once mastered, no one can help you as much, not even your father or your mother.
