Who and What Are We?

“Be empty of worrying. Why do you stay in prison when the door is so wide open?” – Rumi

According to Buddha, we are what we think. All that we are arises from our thoughts and the world is made by our thoughts.I believe this. Every day, every moment, I have a choice. I can believe that I have a disease that is hurting me, growing in my liver, and displacing healthy liver cells, but I don’t.

Instead, I believe that hepatitis C gives me hope, health, inspiration, and a connection with others that have this disease and share this planet and a passion to change the future. Hepatitis C opened a door to a whole new world, filled with amazing people and opportunities. Even at my lowest, I am grateful for all that hepatitis C given me, and although I would love to get rid of this virus, I appreciate the gifts that came because of it.

What do you think? What do your thoughts say about you? What kind of world have your thoughts created?
