There is a quote on the first page of Deepak Chopra’s book ‘The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success‘ that I have always liked. It is from the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad which is an ancient set of writings from India dating back to around 1000 B.C.E.
A teaching generated thousands of years ago that still resonates today. So good.
“You are what your deep, driving desire is.
As your desire is, so is your will
As your will is, so is your deed.
As your deed is, so is your destiny.”
– Brihadaranyaka Upanishad IV.4.5
