I read a passage in a book by Neal Donald Walsh which describes the impact of your thoughts in a very straightforward manner. The passage was entitled “A Thought Is Forever” and went on to describe how thoughts generate energy which then create an impact upon the surrounding world, the universe itself:-
“Thought is pure energy. Every thought you have, have ever had, and ever will have is creative. The energy of your thought never ever dies. Ever. It leaves your being and heads out into the universe, extending forever. A thought is forever.”
A Stanford University study which was undertaken several years ago concluded that the average person has sixty thousand thoughts a day, fifty nine thousand five hundred of which are the same as the day before. We think many of our thoughts without planning to do so; they just happen in an instinctive and spontaneous manner, springing from our subconscious mind in a similar manner to spring water suddenly spurting forth above the ground.
An interesting exercise which you might like to try is to plan to only think about what is happening right now for a short period of time; to spend even five minutes “in the now” can prove to be an incredibly difficult task. Most of us are just so used to a constant commentary of thoughts running through our minds that we have forgotten what it feels like to still our minds and therefore be able to place our full focus upon the current moment.
Not only have we forgotten what this feels like, we somehow can also feel that we do not know how to still our minds and STOP these myriad thoughts from interfering with our enjoyment of the current moment. Perhaps if we realized the true impact of emitting such a mixed bag of thought energy we would try a little harder to still our thought s and focus our energy more positively and more effectively.
Not only would this have a major impact upon our own immediate life and environment, it would also benefit the big wide world far away from us; the entire universe is affected by every thought each of us has. We tend to think that our thoughts are our own individual and private “property” and believe that they only impact on our own immediate environment; but as Neal Donald Walsh points out so succinctly in the quote above, this is not the full story of a thought’s impact. Your thoughts affect the world around you.
