We are what we think.
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts, we make the world.

…the basic stuff of the universe,

at its core,

is looking like a kind of pure energy

that is malleable to human intention

and expectation

in a way that defies

our old mechanistic model of the universe–

as though our expectation itself

causes our energy to flow out

into the world

and affect other energy systems.

So the tree rustles in the evening,

when we stand uneasy before our own childish thoughts.

Trees have long thoughts, long-breathing and restful,

just as they have longer lives than ours.

They are wiser than we are,

as long as we do not listen to them.

But when we have learned how to listen to trees,

then the brevity and the quickness

and the childlike hastiness of our thoughts

achieve an incomparable joy.

Whoever has learned how to listen to trees

no longer wants to be a tree.

He wants to be nothing except what he is.

That is home.

That is happiness.


Herman Hesse

The thought manifests as the word;
The word manifests as the deed;
The deed develops into habit;
And habit hardens into character.

So watch the thought and its ways with care,
And let it spring from love
Born out of concern for all beings.
As the shadow follows the body,
As we think, so we become.

Siddhartha Guatama
