WHAT IS A THOUGHT?

What follows is a beautiful definition as well as elaboration [for brevity, I have deliberately cut out the "extra" bits] of 'what is a thought?', which I have found on the net:

"A thought is an image projected into the ether. It is vibration. It is force and energy...

Every aspect of life is generated by thought...

All success and all failure are the results of our thoughts...

Emotions are brought on by thought. Everything you see is materialized thought... In order to create anything, you must begin by seeing it in your mind. The thought is always first. Action is a direct result of thought.

You can get anything you want if you learn how to control your thoughts. In order to learn how to do so, it is important to understand that thought produces a dual effect: vibration and form.

A vibration is a wave of feeling that comes from the mind of the thinker. It expresses the character of a thought... A vibration is also known as a thought wave...

A vibration emanates as long as the thought is held. Every vibration is instantly followed by a form, which is a picture. This is known as a thought form...

Thought forms are mental pictures in the mind...

The intensity and the clarity of the thought determine the weight, power, and shape of the form...


Your actions were the direct result of the intensity and the duration of the thought form...

Thoughts create a form. The form becomes a picture. The picture may not be instantly apparent to the physical eye, but it is living in the "mental" plane. That is why thought forms are sometimes referred to as "elementals."

A clear thought, visualized and repeated will manifest itself in the physical world. Sometimes it may take time to manifest, but it will happen...

You can develop thought forms that will bring to you what you want. This is a skill. Like any skill, it takes desire, discipline, time, and effort. You have to acquire good habits of thought. This takes concentration and patience. You must see what you want clearly and learn to focus on it with intensity and faith. These are the first steps toward bringing your desire into form. You get what you think."

[Source: 'The 5 Rules of Thought: How to Use the Power of Your Mind to Get What You Want', by Mary Browne;

By the way, here are the five rules from the author:

1) You must decide what you want;

2) You must see it done;

3) You should not vacillate;

4) You must have faith;

5) You must remember, persistence reaps results
