We build our future thought by thought
For good or bad and know it not:
Yet so the universe is wrought.
Thought is another name for Fate;
Choose then thy destiny and wait,
For love brings love and hate brings hate.
Mind is the master of the sphere;
Be calm, be steadfast, and sincere;
Fear is the only thing to fear.
Thought, like an arrow, flies where sent:
Aim well, be sure of thy intent,
And make thine own environment.
