While preparing for meditation this morning I came across this lovely contemplative writing that I share with you today. Be mindful dear reader.
“After a long, hard climb up the mountain, the spiritual seekers found themselves in front of the great teacher. Bowing, they asked the question that had been burning inside them for so long:
‘How do we become wise O Master?’
There was a long pause until the teacher emerged from his meditation. Finally, the reply came, ‘Good choices.’
‘But how do we learn to make good choices?’
“From experience,’ responded the wise teacher.
‘And how do we acquire such experience?’ They inquired.
‘Bad choices,’ smiled the teacher.
Watch your thoughts, they become your words. Watch your words they become actions. Watch your actions, they become habits. Watch your habits, they become character. Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.
Be mindful of what you think, how you speak, and what you do.”
We are more than this…
