we are what we think

Posted on feb 12, 2018

We are what we think, having become what we thought.
Like the wheel that follows the cart-pulling ox,
sorrow follows an evil thought.

We are what we think, having become what we thought.
Like the shadow that never leaves one,
happiness follows a pure thought.

Dhammapada
