Do you engage in violence?

"There are three kinds of violence: one, through our deeds; two, through our words; and three, through our thoughts. ... The root of all violence is in the world of thoughts, and that is why training the mind is so important."
-- Eknath Easwaran


While there's plenty of violence in the world, not many of us engage in violent actions. But are we violent at times with the words we speak? How often do we think vicious thoughts?

We may assume our thinking is an internal matter that has no bearing on the quality of life in the world. Perhaps we need to think again.



"The ancestor of every destructive action, every destructive decision, is a negative thought."
-- Eknath Easwaran


"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
