Write something about the book you read recently. 最近読んだ本について
The book by which I was most impressed nowadays is "The Analects of Confucius".
Before, my friend recommended this book to me because of my personality defects.
At that time, I did not expect this book to give me anything.
However, the content of this book gave me the solution to my trouble.
Do you know the word "温故知新" in this book?
This mean that you can find a guide into tommorow by taking lessons from the past.
As this word suggests, the old and refined words that have remained to this day must have the truth in the world.
This book is a compilation of such old learnings.
And you have to be surrounded by good words.
Once Mother Teresa said as written below.
Be careful of your thoughts, for your thoughts become your words;
Be careful of your words, for your words become your deeds;
Be careful of your deeds, for your deeds become your habits;
Be careful of your habits; for your habits become your character;
Be careful of your character, for your character becomes your destiny.
So, the first step which makes your destiny is thoughts.
Then, what do you think make your thoughts?
In my opinion, surroundings make your thought such as words,friends, and teacher.
Of course, you cannot control things as far as other people concerned, but you are all given only a discretion of words which surround you.
Accordingly, to change your destiny you have to change your words which surround you.
