Quote: All that we are is the result of [. . .]

Personal note: My life changed when I stopped thinking about what I don't have or don't want in life and instead started thinking with gratitude about what I do have and want.

Amazing things began to occur! 

In fact I soon started to prosper and have continued doing so ever since.

All manner of positive things and people and situations began to enter my life.

I have since gained an understanding of the immutable Laws of Nature. 

One of those Laws - the one Emerson referred to as the Law of Laws is the Law of Cause and Effect, also known as Karma.

I am not Buddhist nor Hindu but I do like the above quote.
