Daily all of us could have at least 6, 00,000 thoughts and hardly a few thoughts register. How many of us are keeping note pads and pens to take it all down that passes through our mind daily? Answer is none.

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. Thoughts make an impact only when the mind is clear from ill will or hatred; happiness follows and this happiness never leaves us as it emanated from the soul. Good thoughts make lasting impressions. Possessing a Mercedes Car or Sony TV or a Rado watch do not. Nor can any clothes create an impression. Remember external impressions are ephemeral as your future lies inside in our thinking.

What is inside thinking? It is purity of thought and clarity of purpose, of course. Your thinking is destiny. Whatever you think you are.

You are part of Supreme intelligence and so too is the Universe. How you come into sync with it depends on what thought processes you generate and if it is purity of thought it brings eternal joy.

Thinking is in imo animou or which springs from the depths of one’s soul. It is the very essence of Universe. Even, if you reject this idea; it does not make any difference to universe as it is the everlasting truth.

Your thinking creates your destiny not what others think. Reality emanates from our own thoughts. We don’t know how it happens, but it does. If we knew, then maybe we would be gods. One who believes in the purity of thought is the one who strives to live by it. But whether one believes it or not, it does not detract from the fact that this is how it is. Those who do not believe are those who are restricting the concept of godhead that prevails within them. We are responsible for ourselves and our thoughts eventually make our ideas crystallize into actions. Thought begets reality. Period.

Albert Einstein said profoundly, when I examine myself and my methods of thought, I come to the conclusion that the gift of fantasy has meant more to me than any talent for abstract, positive thinking.

Through our thoughts we build up our understanding from our parents and our immediate environment, then add onto that the knowledge we received in school, college etc eventually sorting out the goodness from the bad to fit our character. Sometimes parents mindlessly push their children into thinking like themselves that is alien to child’s nature. This is harmful. Let the child generate its own noble thoughts without turning it into a robot.

Kindness in thinking adds confidence. Power to lead in life becomes stronger. There is harmony in thinking and action which lead to happiness in life.

Time and space are interconnected. Anything, happening in time will be executed in space .Time is invisible. Mind is invisible. Space is within our realm of thinking. All said and done we come to the question, “What do I want from life?” The simplest answer is “Well…I want to be happy.” You had many reasons to be happy: Your wife is truly beautiful or husband tall, dark, handsome; you have wealth, happy family and happy neighborhood. But yet you seem dejected when life fails to move exactly the way you think it should have. Let us remember that basic understanding of purity of thought is analyzing our own innate imperfections. It can be summed up as: Imperfections being the hallmark of life happiness is how we come to accept and live with it by kindling our thought process.
