Happiness and peace of mind follow pure thinking and virtuous living as the shadow follows the substance of material things. – The Urantia Papers on Buddhism, (131:3.3)
what it takes
Do you buy this quote? That what we truly seek (peace and happiness) is simply the result of high living and purity of thought?
Pure thinking is thinking that’s selfless, not self-focused. It’s broad thinking, it cares for the well-being of the largest group possible. It is also about self-honesty and growth via increasing self-knowledge.
While pure thinking is more about being, pure living is all about doing. Doing that, which comes from thinking of the highest kind.
