Go figure. It's certainly not one of MMY's sayings because MMY believed in karma - that you are what you are due to being bound by your past actions. All the six systems of Indian philosophy and Buddhism agree with this. You can't go back and change the past. If you could do that, you'd be a Super Man - you could become God Shiva. > It is, "What you focus on, you become." > You're not even making any sense. If you had free-will why would you need to focus on anything? If you were free, you could be anything you want to be - you could cause change at will. But, we know this is impossible - you can't leap tall building even if you want to, even if you focus on doing so for a thousand years. All things fall down is the law, without exception; even Rama fell back down after his levitating event. LoL!
