The Principle of Thought
The Principle of Thought is the power behind life that creates the full range of human experiences.
We live in a world of Thought. There is nothing in our experience, from the moment we are born to the moment we die, that isn’t brought to life by the power of Thought. It is formless and infinite.
Thought generates every moment of mental activity, or thinking, that is going on inside your head and inside everyone else’s head. It creates all the forms of your mental activity, such as ideas, concepts, beliefs, impressions, images, and intuitions. The Principle of Thought is also the power that creates everything you feel and all of your emotions. You are a thinker with free will so you are free to decide what thoughts to listen to and bring to life. You are free to pay attention to a thought or not. You are free to act on a thought or not.
When we talk about the Principle of Thought, we are not talking about the stream of content that is flowing through your head at any given time — that is your personal thinking. The Principle of Thought is much bigger and deeper than that. It’s what allows for the creation of all mental life, everything you think, perceive, and feel. There is nothing before this Principle. It is the unlimited creative potential, or field, from which all experiences arise.
