“Peace in the world begins with peace within, and peace within automatically exists before thought.”
It’s not what we do that is most important to our well-being; it’s our state of mind in which we do it, and we can be in almost any state of mind and be doing the same thing.
No thought has any power over us except the power we give it (with another thought). Jack Pransky
The pathway to love, peace of mind and wisdom is to realize that the only way we cannot experience those is by thinking otherwise. Therefore, a calm mind—a mind not filled with extraneous thoughts—is the pathway.
“We often take others’ thinking personally when it is only their self-created illusion”.
