Inspiration: Conditioning the Mind

“Just as we condition our bodies in different ways through exercise or lack of it, so we also condition our minds. Every mind state, thought, or emotion that we experience repeatedly becomes stronger and more habituated. Who we are as personalities is a collection of all the tendencies of mind that have developed, the particular energy configurations we have cultivated.”

– Joseph Goldstein & Jack Kornfield, Seeking the Heart of Wisdom
