"We are what we think.
All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts we make the world.
Speak or act with a pure mind,
and happiness will follow you
as your shadow, unshakeable.

How can a troubled mind understand the way?
Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much
as your own thoughts unguarded.
But once mastered,
no one can help you as much,
not even your father or your mother."

Buddha (from the Dhammapada, translated by Thomas Byron)

This reminds me... I'm gonna post the lyrics to "Om Song" here next week- after I get back from a much needed vacation. Till then, I've got two words for you...
