|O Arjuna, the faith of each is in
accordance with one's own nature. A person is known by the faith. One
becomes what one constantly thinks. (17.03)
Whatever a person of purified mind desires, one obtains those objects.
The doer of good acts becomes good, and the doer of evil becomes evil. One becomes virtuous by
virtuous deeds and vicious by vicious acts (The Upanishads).
One becomes what one constantly and intensely thinks of;
irrespective of the reasons which may be reverence, fear, jealousy, love, or
even hatred (The Bhagavat Puraana).
We are the product of our own thoughts and desires, our
own architect. Where there is a will there is a way. We should harbor
noble thoughts, because thoughts precede deeds.
