Dadi Janki on Pure Thoughts

Love, purity, peace, wisdom the more you think of these things the more you will become them.

Weakness blown out of proportion in yourself or in others invite negative thinking. They will destroy you. Learn to shift your focus. Instead think: Though I am not yet pure, I want purity, God is leading me to my destination, so I will definitely become pure.
I will not become pure unless I think about it first.
When you build a house, every brick counts, When you build character, every thought counts.

Dadi Janki is associated with Brahmakumaris
