MIND CREATES MISERIES AND HAPPINESS
have mind as their forerunner; they havemind as their chief; they are mind-made.
If one thinks, speaks or acts with an evil mind, misery follows him justas the wheel follows the hoofs of the ox that draws the cart.If one thinks, speaks or acts with a pure mind, happiness follows himlike his shadow that never leaves him
