Daily Quotations

2014-03-06
A small rock on your foot will not harm your foot, but a small rock thrown at your foot can harm your foot, because it is the added energy that causes the damage.
A small thought in your mind will not harm your mind, but a small thought thrown at your mind can harm your mind, because it is the added emotional energy that causes the damage.
Thinking the thought, “She doesn’t like me,” will not disturb you, but if you add the emotional energy of believing that if anyone doesn’t love you, then you must not be a lovable or worthwhile person—then you will feel disturbed.
Thinking the thought, “Candy tastes good,” will not disturb you, but if you add the emotional energy of believing that you must eat candy because you deserve it, and that you must not eat it because it will make you fat—then you will feel disturbed.

Thinking the thought, “I made a mistake,” will not disturb you, but if you add the emotional energy of believing that you must not make mistakes or errors, because if you do then you are a defective and pathetic person—then you will feel disturbed.
