Thought is Everything!

Below is an excellent article by John Hill that I hope you'll like:
"When I say thought is everything I mean that literally everything in your life could be a construct of your thoughts. According to Albert Einstein and other brilliant scientists like David Bohm, it seems reality is nothing more than the projection of thought. Everything in life that we perceive with our 5 senses comes firstly from our habitual thinking. The fact that we all see the same things when we are in a group of people means that collectively our thoughts work together. This togetherness of perceiving the same things makes sense since we know the entire universe is made up of energy vibrating at different rates. Everything in the universe is connected on some level even though it might not seem that way.

Although we may view the same scenery or landscape when we are standing in a group, when we walk away from each other we go back into our own seemingly separate little world. Some of us live in the lap of luxury and some of us live in total poverty. Some of us are happy with ourselves and our lives, some of us are dreadfully unhappy and cannot see a way out from the problems that seem to engulf us.

If thought is everything we should able to change virtually every aspect of our life by simply changing our habitual thoughts. Although this is a difficult concept to prove scientifically, you only have to look over your own life and look at the ups and downs you have gone through to see that this concept seems valid. I can only speak for myself but when I look back over my own life I can clearly see how when I am thinking positively and optimistically I have experienced success on so many levels and have felt content during those periods. At times when life has not gone so well, it was my thoughts that let me down, not bad luck or misfortune.

I enjoy reading biographies and almost all biographies are written about successful people, I guess a biography written about someone unsuccessful would not be very successful. There seems to be a common theme with all successful people and that is, they thought about being a success in a certain area of their life long before, perhaps many years before, they became a big success.

One other very fascinating aspect of the lives of many successful people was the fact that in other areas of their life, these super successful people were quite unsuccessful. Perhaps they were successful in their primary field but many suffered failures in their relationships, financially and in other important areas of life. Many of these people claim the same story and that is they never gave much thought to success in other areas of their life other than their primary goal.

If you believe in the concept that thought is everything, you could probably make incredible changes in your life that lead to greater happiness and success. If this concept seems like fiction I guess you just have to leave your life to the winds of fate, but for me I like the idea that my thoughts do control the outcome of my life and I feel I have seen enough evidence over the course of my life to know deep inside that thought is everything". John Hill, Universe of Success
