As A Man Thinketh

Knowest thou not that thy thoughts formeth impressions which createth illusions that thou referreth to as reality?
If thou thinkesth that thou art in the midst of foes, thou shalt assume that every action emanateth from ill intension.
Such manner of thought encumbereth progress but unfortunately, becometh reality unto him who thinketh asuch.
Knoweth thou not that appearance mayeth be deceptive?
Things, often arth not as they seemeth.
If my thoughts mayesth be true, wouldest thou not think purer thoughts than thou thinkest habitually?
Whither goest thou from hither?
Thoughts which encubereth, thou must banish.
Ponder rather upon thoughts that enlighteneth thee.
Immerse thyself whither thou shalt feel peace.
Make merry in thine heart, for men from yonder speaketh such as this: “as a man thinketh in his heart, so he is”.
Impressions art images begotten from encounters whereby perception conspireth.
Behold beauty. Ponder upon trust, truth, hope, peace, frienship, joy, unity, abundance, mercy, honesty, kindness, goodness, patience, love and such manner of things.
Saturate thine being with good thoughts and a good being, thou shalt become.

This piece is in honour of my favorite writer, William Shakespeare.
I just adopted his stylised language.
See these lines from Macbeth:
“Hear it not Duncan; for it is a knell
that summons thee to heaven or to hell”.
Shakespeare wrote volumes, with rhymes, suspense and numerous literary values.
I didn’t study in his era but I just hope I was able to make my points while sounding like him for a moment.
What do you think?

About teeceecounsel

Who am I really? Can that be defined yet? Probably by the time I'm long gone and all the pieces of my activities are compiled and analysed then you can know what you want to know about me. Meanwhile, I write. Not because I love writing but because I love people. I love to care and love to share. I'm a deep thinker and I love to believe in the impossible. The ideal is attainable and a shot at it must be given. Don't say 'It won't work' rather ask 'how will it work? Nobody is ever doomed unless they made the choice. To resist good and to adopt evil is already doom. To loose hope is to choose doom but to believe that every step is a passing phase leading towards your hope is to choose progress. I may go on and on but my posts say it all. I don't force you to agree, I only say enjoy!
