You have probably already read or heard the story that I transcribe below:
A man prays:
- "Lord, make me rich."
Every day, the man prays and utters the same words. Every day, when he goes home at night, he finds that his situation remains unchanged.
One morning, he felt anger in him and expressed it to God:
- "Lord, it's enough! I pray every day and You... You do not even answer the prayer of one of your faithful!"
As man takes his breath again, he hears the voice of God answering him:
- "Have you even thought about buying a lottery ticket?"
I read everywhere - and for several years - that thought is creative. Some even advocate that it is enough to think, to imagine, to dream or to visualize something and this thing become reality. So many sit on their couch or to meditate... to a better world for example!
However, I would like to remind you that we live in a reality that is made up of matter and that, therefore, if you want something concrete to manifest itself, you will have to do the right things.
I give you a few examples: if you want to have a child, you’ll have to have sex; if you want to be thin and healthy, you’ll have to feed yourself differently; if you want to paint a painting, you’ll have to buy some canvas, brushes and paint; if you want the planet to be less polluted, you will have to consume otherwise; if you want the wealth to be better shared, you will have to stop feeding the current system of society; etc., etc.
So yes, thought is the origin of everything, but if that thought is not followed by concrete and right actions, my opinion is that your reality won't change. Do you know what I mean?
