Destino no se queda en las estrellas, pero ella vive dentro de nuestros personajes imo. Nuestros personajes se rigen por nuestras acciones, mientras que nuestras acciones son impulsadas por nuestros pensamientos. Así que en última instancia son nuestros pensamientos que realmente controlan nuestro destino. que somos hoy en día, y que nos convertiremos mañana es por lo tanto puramente dirigidos por nuestro proceso de pensamiento. Por lo tanto, pensar en positivo se convierte en la clave de la impresionante "ahora" y sorprendente "mañana". destino no es una cuestión de suerte, sino una cuestión de elección que hacemos a cada momento. Así, pensar en positivo - siempre!
– Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
