The Power of Thought

    In my childhood, I used to get angry at injustices.  One day I saw how foolish it was: I could not change the world in a minute by a display of wrath.  I raised my hands and vowed: “I will never be angry again.”  Since then, I have never been angry within, though I can be outwardly fiery when necessary.

    Just as by the power of thought you can change yourself to be whatever you want to be, so most importantly, you will be able to change your consciousness from that of a mortal to a divine being.

~ Paramahansa Yogananda (1893-1952)
