Mind to everything

“The mind is everything. What you think you become.”
 - Buddha

You are what you think. If you let the outside influence you, then you choose that to be your reality. Nothing outside can force your thinking. It’s always about your will to resist the influence and make your own choices. Too many people don’t take the time to think before they choose.

“We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.”
 - Swami Vivekananda

Too many people think they think, but in fact they only reproduce what they were told. Make up your mind on your own. Take the time to build your thinking and choose what is of value to you. Don’t become one among the many that think they know what they should think because many think like them.

“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”
 - Steve Jobs

Learn to listen to your intuition. Not what others have told you to think, but the little voice inside of you. That little voice is there for you and you alone.

“There is no logical way to the discovery of these elemental laws. There is only the way of intuition, which is helped by a feeling for the order lying behind the appearance.”
 - Albert Einstein

Your intuition will help you understand what lies behind the appearance. It will guide you into the world of the real under the seams.

“Intuition is a spiritual faculty and does not explain, but simply points the way.”
 - Florence Scovel Shinn

It’s a little weird to talk about thinking and intuition in the same text.
