Your Thoughts

My cousin received this 'thought for the day' from her yoga teacher and she passed it along to me.  I loved this.

"The soul is dyed
the color of
its thoughts.
Think only
on those things
that are in
line with your
principles and
can bear the
light of day.
The content of
your character
is your choice.
Day by day,
what you choose,
what you think,
and what you do
is who you become.
Your integrity is
your destiny...
it is the light
that guides
your way."
 
~Heraclitus
Greek Philosopher

Sounds like pretty wise counsel doesn't it? I do believe that it is God that guides my way though- unless I let my stubborn self get in the way- xo Diana

Words worth sharing and everyday I try to be the best I can be. Look up always as when I look down..I seem to lose focus. I dont like to be out of focus. Life is grand.

Very deep and inspiring words Sheri. I've always believed that the soul is made up of compassion, kindness, integrity and most importantly love, all the good things. The soul only knows love and is not made up of negative thoughts and feelings. These traits come from the personality and are learned but can be changed if you have the earnest desire to do so. :)

Great post! :)

I wholeheartedly agree dearest Sheri. We make our choices; that is what I believe God has given us. A free will, a mind, a creative spirit so that we can decide and choose those colors of goodness and not darkness. It IS up to us. HAPPY DAY and may it be full of COLORFUL POSSIBILITIES! Anita

LOVE this! And so true. I wish it was easy to remember every minute of the day. Maybe I'll keep a copy where I can see it on a regular basis.
Thank you for this!
Happy week,
Kirsten
