Mind Over Matter

There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so. (William Shakespeare in A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle, p. 111)

Isn't it odd that no one ever taught us about mental hygiene? But good mental and emotional health habits were never mentioned, let alone explained. (Larsen and Hegarty, Believing In Myself, 13 March)

How much simpler it makes living through even our most feared experiences when we have acquired the wisdom to know that the mind we carry into the moment, any moment, will be reflected in the outcome. (The Promise Of A New Day, 10 March)

It's not at all unusual for grown men and women still to be operating on the same emotional level as they did when they were twelve. (Larsen and Hegarty, Believing In Myself, 25 March)

Being angry, being neurotic, having a less-than-perfect childhood do not excuse you from the obligations of the mentally competent. (Harold Kushner, To Life!, p. 187)

"This is my secret, I don't mind what happens." (J. Krishnamurti, the great Indian philosopher and spiritual leader in A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle, p. 198)

"It's a question of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter." (Mr. Dickie)
