***Thoughts Create Things***
If you THINK that you’re going to go shopping tomorrow then all things being equal, you will probably go shopping tomorrow. On that trip, you will buy things. Things that would not be in your possession unless you had that initial thought. You see, thoughts precede action, that action creates ‘things’. In other words, thoughts create things (cutting out the middle ‘action’ man).
Now, this is where it gets tricky.
To borrow a concept from the immortal John Lennon, imagine there’s
no God. Imagine there’s no heaven. No reason to live or die for.
Imagine there’s NO law. So, with that imagination firmly in place,
you’re left with now. Just this life. Just today. Just this minute.
So, without any thought of reward in the afterlife, or fear of
being punished in this one, what are you going to do? You’ve no
need to be scared of prison or of being caught, so why not go and
rob a bank, even an old lady? What’s to stop you? In your imagined
world, there’s no God. No retribution. No law. Just you and now. If
you imagine that nothing really matters (words of another great
immortal; Freddie Mercury), you could become a worthless robbing
murdering drunk. Not giving a damn about anyone or anything. Just
Maybe that’s enough imagining for one day. It’s not a pretty world
we’re creating. But we could imagine another world. One where we
only did good. For no other reason, than good feels better than
bad. Where we ‘added value’ to everyone around us. Where we smiled
at strangers. Where we went ‘over and above’ for our employers,
friends, families and yes, even those strangers. Where we
selflessly gave, our time, our money and our resources, to those
less fortunate. Where people didn’t starve to death. Especially
children. Where there was no incurable disease. Where there was
enough medicine to go around. Where everyone on the planet had the
right to strive. With adequate shelter, education and freedom to
achieve their dreams. Where we didn’t falsely hurt, maim or
imprison. Where we didn’t go to war. Where we didn’t have a
‘defence’ force (that is used to attack). Where we all got on,
regardless of our colour, creed, race or religion.
Go on try it. It’s just your imagination. But here’s the trick.
Today’s thoughts create tomorrow’s reality. Thoughts create things.
Those things could be a better world.
So THINK of a better world. Today.
If enough of us THINK that way, then that world will become our
Pass it on.
