Wisdom from the Book of Javi; Part One

Pay attention to your thoughts
For they become your words

Pay attention to your words
For they become your actions

Pay attention to your actions
For they become your habits

Pay attention to your habits
For they become your character

Pay attention to your character
For it becomes your fate

  1. "When the Way is lost, there remains goodness.
    When goodness is lost, there remains morality.
    When morality is lost, there remains ritual.
    Ritual is the husk of true faith, the beginning of chaos."

    From Tao Te Ching, verse 38

    I find both of these to be mutually supportive.
    If you do not pay attention to your thoughts, the Way is lost.

  2. Agree with both. Though in my opinion, sadly those who are unlikely to lose the way, will pay attention to it all, and those who need the help, do not know nor understand enough to heed the wise words.
