Mindfulness Matters Part I

Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become actions.
Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your habits, they become your character.
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.
Take a deep breath as you are reading this and observe your thoughts. Repeat this as many times as you can remember to do so throughout the day. Begin to realize that your thoughts are secretions of your brain, just like any other organ, and let go of any judgments about your thoughts. This is the first step to developing a compassionate mind.
