Hello friends! A little bit of wisdom for you today, courtesy of The Guru.
Now generally, we tend to think our Guru is a little bit loopy (much as we love him) but sometimes, he is surprisingly profound.
The Guru, doing what Gurus do.
“It is important what we think, because thoughts are ‘things’,” he says. “They are energy! If we worry, for instance, that things could go wrong, that illnesses may occur and people might die, we are actually giving breath to those probable realities. This is important. Don’t think for a moment that thoughts don’t matter and aren’t important! They are! Period.”
I actually believe in the power of positive thought. And although having a Guru for a father may have caused me to rebel against spirituality, I definitely have him to thank for my pretty rock-solid upbeat disposition.
And if you ever had even the tiniest inkling of doubt about the power of belief, this might change your mind. The Guru, at 64, has recently developed a humungous pimple on his cheek (almost as if there were another Guru trying to get out!) which is PROOF that he has actually manifested the age of twenty in his consciousness. Problem skin and all.
N.B. If you’re wondering what that brown mark is across The Guru’s leg, it’s a scar from when he decided to stand on a rickety, antique chair (not a ladder) to fix the bird feeder for his beloved avians, high up in the Jacaranda tree. Of course, he crashed to the ground, gashing his leg in spectacular style, proving that sometimes, Gurus are humans too. (And very silly humans, at that).
