"I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet."
-- Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
Ah, another hero of mine, along with Albert Schweitzer. I read Gandhi's autobiography MY EXPERIMENTS WITH TRUTH. I also saw the movie. "Rama" was his last words in that film. Of course, Rama governs the heart center. So, in effect, Gandhi was actually blessing his assailant at the time of death.
Another great line from the autobiography was (paraphrased), "Ride third class and complain about it." He spoke of traveling by train in India and the deplorable conditions allowed for the poor, those who could not afford first-class status. The caste system was unyielding in India.
I love this saying. It's inspirational and something that I want to keep in mind. The photo that you've shared is interesting.
One does have to learn how to dismiss negative thoughts. Darned difficult, but it can be done. What's frustrating is that the subconscious just keeps serving up more.
This is a great thought to make a life philosophy. Like one christian author says, you are what you think.
To do this, you have to learn to control your thoughts and choose what you are going to think on. Do not be controlled by your emotions, but you can change your emotions by what you choose to think. All kinds of crazy thoughts can jump into your mind, but you can learn to boot out the ones you do not want. This is also achieved by what you choose to watch on TV and what you choose to read.
Thank you for the comments. I love this quote because it can be interpreted from different points of view. What an amazing being!
I saw the big movie on Ghandi. He was a very remarkable man. Although he was not a christian, he said he liked the christian Jesus as he read of him in the Bible. He just did not see much of Jesus lived in the lives of Christians.
