“If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.
A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”
Being stubborn can be a good thing. Being stubborn can be a bad thing. It just depends on how you use it.
Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person’s ultimate good as far as it can be obtained.
In the end
these things matter most:
How well did you love?
How fully did you live?
How deeply did you let go?
When I’m not doing something that comes deeply from me, I get bored. When I get bored I get distracted and when I get distracted, I become depressed. It’s a natural resistance, and it insures your integrity.
