The Tool of Thought
Thinking is the highest function we are capable of. It distinguishes us from any other animal. James Allen a philosopher from the early 1900’s said “Mind is the master power that molds and makes
And man is mind,
And the more he takes the tool of thought
And shapes it to his will
Brings forth a thousand joys or a thousand ills,
He thinks in secret
and it comes to pass,
Environment is but his looking glass.”
In his book As a Man Thinketh, he explains in detail the process of thinking.
He also said “Until thought is linked with purpose there is no intelligent accomplishment.”
We think about 600,000 thoughts a day. Our minds are busy with stuff. Let’s give ourselves a tune up and think higher. Let’s keep our thoughts linked to our purpose so that we can create a thousand joys. If we do this collectively imagine what kind of world we will be living in.
Think about it!
