Actually, you do not live in the world, or even in your body. You live only in your mind. Every moment of your life that’s where you are. Your mind is your home, and your thoughts are the furnishings. You can decorate with negative thoughts, or with positive thoughts. You can live with the filth of self-pride, hatred, vengeance, and hurtful thoughts, or you can live with the joy of hope, excitement, curiosity and loving thoughts. No one can make you think ugly thoughts. Within the home of your mind, you, and only you, are in charge. You may encounter a lot of filth outside the door, but you needn’t bring it inside.
Notes to myself while reading various authors.
