“The thoughts you habitually think, your mental attitudes and emotional states, reactions to events, personal relationships and actions are chosen by you. How you think and behave determines your existing circumstances and those you will experience in the near and distant future. If you want any aspect of your life to be improved, you have only to exercise your freedom of choice and decisively act in accord with your choices.
Choose to be emotionally mature. Assume responsibility for your thoughts, actions and circumstances. Refuse to allow mental confusion, emotional unrest or psychological conflicts to dominate your awareness. Do not let debilitating habits dissipate your vital forces, weaken your health, diminish your financial (or other) resources, mar worthwhile relationships or interfere with the efficient accomplishments of your meaningful purposes.
Be optimistic, cheerful and calmly energetic. Optimistic people are always healthier, happier, more successful and live longer than people who are pessimistic. Cultivate only wholesome, life-enhancing thoughts, feelings, behaviors and relationships. Be aware of your true nature in relationship to the Infinite. Nurture awareness of the presence of God within and around you. Assume and express the characteristics and qualities you want to have.”
“Remember that you belong to no one, and no one belongs to you. Reflect that someday you will have to leave this world, so make the acquaintance of God now. It is only because of delusion that you perceive yourself as a physical body. Meditate unceasingly to realize your real, divine nature.”
