A great many people believe in destiny or karma or divine grace and so on. But these beliefs are human constructions that provide a level of comfort depending on one’s upbringing, culture or traditions. The fact of the matter is that we are what we think. If we think thoughts that are happy then happiness will result. If we think thoughts that are angry then we will experience anger.
We humans are great projection machines. We project our inner world onto the outside world and then give the outside world the quality of that projection. If we are feeling and thinking loving and happy thoughts, the world outside responds as loving and happy. Not only are we what we think but the response is also what we projecting.
“Sow a thought, reap an action
Sow an action, reap a habit,
Sow a habit reap a character,
Sow a character, reap a destiny!”
