A beautiful thought given as a warning and advice, I found it was very truthful, I hope you like it.
“Watch your thoughts,
they become your words;
watch your words,
they become your actions;
watch your actions,
they become your habits;
watch your habits,
they become your character;
watch your character,
it becomes your destiny.”
- Lao Tzu
We should look out for the most basic things,
even what seems to be the most unimportant,
because much of what seems to be of little importance
is really the source and root of many problems.
Let's watch our thoughts, what we envy,
what we allow ourselves to feel, the bad feelings,
the ones that help us let off steam for a while
but that can end up making everything worse
if they were to become true, or if they were to become known.
Let's watch what we say, our words,
what we say almost without thinking,
what we say on a whim,
what we say to sound clever
and to try to attract attention.
Let watch what we do, our actions,
because they are a reflection of who we really are,
because it is what we will be judged most,
because it is not the same to think something as to do it.
Let us take care of our habits,
because it is one thing to do something once,
or to say something on one occasion,
or to think something at some point...
and quite another to be doing it over and over again.
And let's take care of our way of being,
because it is a reflection of our habits,
actions, words and thoughts,
it is who we really are...
and it would be very sad
if because of something
as simple as an uncontrolled thought
our whole became affected.
