Take care of your thoughts and desires – Dada J P Vaswani



Often times, we pay scant attention to our thoughts. But thoughts are forces. Thoughts survive and have forms and colours: and they cling to us. They are never lost. A thought may have the form of an angel or a demon, depending upon its contents. If I think a thought of peace, good-will, love, service, purity, prayer, it will stick to me, wearing the form of an angel. If I think a thought of hatred, jealousy, envy, resentment, ill-will, greed, lust, it will stick to me, wearing the form of a demon.

Each one of us has around himself these forms – angelic or demoniac – depending upon the type of thoughts he thinks.

Take care of your thoughts and desires, your impulses and emotions, your feelings and fancies. With them you are building your own life, your hell or your heaven. You are the builder of your own fate, the architect of your destiny. No one – other than you – is to blame for your present condition. You have built it with your own thoughts and desires generated in the near or distant past.
