Master Your Thoughts

That early-20th-century Happiness Guru, Dale Carnegie, echoed the wisdom of the ages when he wrote:

"It isn't what you have, or who you are, or where you are, or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about."

The Dhammapada (again!) starts out on the same note. The first two verses read:

1. All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts, it is made up of our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him, as the wheel follows the foot of the ox that draws the carriage.
2. All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts, it is made up of our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.

Yep. It's all in your head!

Remember that, and you'll be happier.
