As you think, you travel;
and as you love you attract.
You are today where your thoughts have brought you;
you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.
You cannot escape the result of your thoughts,
but you can endure and learn … .
You will realise the vision (not the idle wish) of your heart,
be it base or beautiful …
for you will always gravitate towards that which you, secretly, most love.
Whatever your present environment may be,
you will fall, remain or rise with your thoughts, your vision, your ideal.
You will become as small as your controlling desire;
as great as your dominant aspiration.
~~ James Allen
This quote has accompanied me for more than half my life now … I found it printed on the bottom of a box of herbal tea … I was still at school back then, had just started high school. What did I know about life … I thought I knew it all and yet I knew I knew nothing and had everything to still discover :) … I had little idea of the meaning or implications of this quote … yet it struck me as profound and important. I cut it out … and to this day I have the same piece of cardboard, slightly faded and worn, with the quote ever so faithfully accompanying me … and with each passing year, as I discover more and more, the quote grows in meaning and magnitude …
I hope it stirs some fresh thoughts for you too :) … happy journeying :) Question remains: Where are you headed?
