Our life is what our thoughts make it. -Marcus Aurelius
Trust the emperor. Right thoughts and right actions equals right living.
Wherever the head goes, the body will follow. This is a truth that goes beyond the physical realm. You are what you believe. If you believe you will never amount to anything, chances are you never will. If your head is continually in the gutter, it won’t be long before the body is there in the trash as well.
Henry Ford said, “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.”
If your body will follow your mind down, it can also follow your mind up. If you saturate your mind with positive thoughts, your body will reflect it. If you change your mindset for the better, your life will eventually get better. It starts with the belief. Powered by action, that belief will become reality.
The Virtue of Justice
What does it mean to live a just life? If right thoughts and right actions equal righteousness, can we be righteous? Our hope is that others treat us with justice. This of course is no guarantee, but it does not change our responsibilities. It is our responsibility to be honest in our deeds and in our words, and that we treat others with justice.
