You Are What You Think and Do


It’s not too original to say that your thoughts and actions have dramatic effects on your life, but medicine had largely forgotten about the link until the 1950s. I was looking to create a pithy sentence to summarize the interaction. But I could dono better than this one, from almost two thousand years ago.

“This body, full of faults, has yet one great quality: Whatever it encounters in this temporal life depends upon one’s actions.”       

–Siddha Nagarjuna (Indian Philosopher and Founder of the Mahayana School of Buddhism, c.A.D.150-c.A.D.250)
