Great article and excellent Emerson reference. Reminds me of a similar quote from a Pali Canon translation:
“What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday and present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: our life is the creation of the mind.” -The Buddha
We all thought our way into our desk chairs and may think our way out of them if we so desire. Such a liberating thought to realize that nobody is ever truly stuck. Thanks for the great read.
