More Powerful Than You Know

Yes, it’s a big, wide world
full of powerful forces we don’t control.
There’s another Truth operating in your life, however.
 
The Buddha said: “We are what we think. 
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world.”

Maybe you can’t stop the flood
from washing away your house,
but you can avoid taking it personally,
and you can be too busy
helping your family and friends recover
to be upset about having to replace some material stuff.
 
You can make yourself miserable with your habits of thought.
You can also be constantly filled with gratitude and the joy of living.
 
As Maya Angelou said:
“If you don’t like something, change it.
If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”
Happiness is an inside job.
