To forget how to dig the earth and to tend the soil is to forget ourselves.

Thoughts into joy

Your thoughts are what frighten you. Choose to change them, and the fear is gone.

Your thoughts are what cause you to be frustrated, angry, disappointed, impatient and uncomfortable. And your thoughts can also take you far away from all those things.

For your thoughts can transform anger into forgiveness, disappointment into determination, discomfort into inspiration, and fear into love. The choice is always yours.

The world is what it is. Yet your thoughts determine how you situate yourself into the world.

By controlling your thoughts you control the kind of world in which you live. At the times when you realize it, and at the times when you don’t, you are always controlling your thoughts.

Deep inside you is a beautiful, unique person who seeks true joy and fulfillment. Let your thoughts resonate with the genuine person you are, and that joy does surely come.

— Ralph Marston
