Is there literally a distinction, or physical distance, such as space or miles, BETWEEN two (or more) thoughts?
In other words, if I choose to think one thought versus another, is there distance between the two choices? Is the distance just linear, is it horizontal or vertical, or both?
How can a group of people in the same or similar circumstance have completely different experiences? Why is there thought distance between people having the same experience?
Where do thoughts come from?
Why are some people peace-filled and happy, while others constantly disgruntled, fearful, and anxious?
Why does our human journey have ups and downs?
Actions follow beliefs.
Words carry creative power.
Thoughts, like the rudder of a ship, steer the vessel.
Actions, words, and thoughts are springs, sourced in the heart.
To what Kingdom is a spring sourced?
Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Guard your heart for it is the wellspring of life. As a man thinketh, so is he. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. Set a guard over my mouth. He rescued us from the domain of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the son he loves. Be rooted in Christ, firmly established in faith. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world. Come to me, all who are weary…
Then the man and his wife heard the sound of God…and hid among the trees of the garden. You belong to your father the Devil...you want to carry out your father’s desires. Get behind me Satan. Go away! Why are you interfering with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? The demons begged Jesus, "If you drive us out, send us into the herd of pigs." Then everyone deserted him and fled.
Yes, there is distance between thoughts. Choose wisely.
