There is a line from Mikhail Naimy's 'The Book of Mirdad' that resonates with what has been said many times in different ways...and yet never seems to lose its truth:
'So think as if your every thought were to be etched in fire upon the sky for all and everything to see. And so, in truth, it is. So do as if your every deed were to recoil upon your heads. And so, in truth, it does.'
Every thought and act is remembered, and has an effect. Nothing exists in a vacuum.
We can be the creators of our own future.
Love is the Law, Love under Will
