“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”Buddha
You could argue that all the friction I was dealing with while traveling to Thailand was through circumstances I created myself.
Where my thoughts of ”this day isn’t going to go well for me” contributing to my seemly random poor luck?
Can you think reality into existence?
I don’t know if I would go that far. But our thoughts do affect our emotional state and our actions. And our decisions established on our thoughts can have massive effects on our lives. So in a way our thoughts do change our reality.
Can I think ice cream to magically appear into existence? No(t yet anyway). But I can focus on ice cream mentally. I can dwell in the cream texture and imagine the taste. And the more I think about it, the more ill try to figure out a way to get it.
Thought correlates to reality.
The more we focus on something, the more we see it, the more we are drawn to it. Sometimes without even realizing it.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
