The power of thoughts
The power of our thoughts is limitless. It can break or create your destiny.
As will be your thought, so will be your feeling;
As will be your feeling, so will be your attitude;
As will be your attitude, so will be your action;
As will be your action, so will be your habit;
As will be your habit, so will be your personality;
As will be your personality, so will be your destiny.
Light travels at a speed of 300,000 kilometres per second. It is not per hour but per second. Can you imagine how fast is that?
Just close your eyes and visualize yourself driving a car at 200 km/hour. It is indeed very fast. But if you convert this speed to kilometre per second, the number is very small. The car will be travelling at a speed of 0,056 km in one second (around 56 meters in one second). This speed is negligible as compared to the speed of light.
Thoughts virtually travel in no time. A thought is finer than ether, the basis and essence of all things in the material world.
The ripple effect
When you drop a little stone in a pool of water, it produces a succession of concentric waves travelling all around. This is known as the ripple effect. Similarly, the light from a candle produces such wave vibrations. These vibrations get scattered in all directions, thus enlightening the place where the candle is.
Likewise, when you think about something, creating a thought (good or evil), it gives rise to vibrations in the mental atmosphere (known as manas). These thought vibrations travel far and wide in all directions.
But how is it possible for thought vibrations to be transmitted from one mind to another? The best possible explanation is that mind-substance (manas) fills all space like ether does. As vital life force or energy (prana) acts as a vehicle for feeling, ether (aether) for heat, light and electricity, and air for sound, likewise, mind substance serves as a travel mode for your thoughts.
Thoughts have gigantic and unimaginable power. They can be transmitted from one man to another. The powerful thoughts of great sages and knowledgeable geniuses can be found recorded in the sky (akasa) as the akashic records.
People with supernatural ability (those who have clairvoyant vision) can understand and read those thought-images.
Thoughts are living things and they can never die. As a thought changes, so does the vibration associated with it. The stronger the thought becomes, the earlier you will see the results of the task upon which the thought is focused.
“Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.”

You are the food that you eat
You have heard innumerable times that you are the food that you eat. The thought is a finer force that is supplied to you by food. If you consume pure food, your thoughts become pure. If you have pure thoughts, you will speak very powerfully. You will thus create a very deep impression on the minds of people, thus influencing thousands of them just through your pure thoughts.
Thought-culture has been revealed to be an exact and perfect science. Thus, you must always harbour pure and sublime thoughts.
Avoid people who entertain thoughts of hatred, malice, jealousy and revenge. Since these types of thought vibrations are sharper than the edge of a razor blade, these people can be very dangerous. They are the real cause of unrest and ill-will amongst men. Their thoughts and feelings are captured by like-minded people who respond favourably to such vibrations.
World War II was the consequence of the thoughts of a person who wanted to control the world.
A thought is a dynamic force produced by the vibrations of the vital life force or energy (prana). It moves with an unimaginable velocity and has got extraordinary power which can do wonders. It can heal diseases and transform the mentality of persons.
Thus, it is advisable not to store any useless information in the brain. You must learn how to unwind the mind. If something has been of no use to you, just remove the thoughts completely from the mind. You must not keep thoughts of resentment, jealousy, hatred and revenge in the mind.
“If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.”
~ Peace Pilgrim ~
You must annihilate these thoughts as soon as they arise in the mind. Otherwise, these harmful thoughts will lead to diseases. Replace them with divine and positive thoughts. You will notice that after doing so, you will gain mental strength and inner peace. This is the pathway to true happiness.
“A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.”

Transition from Iron age (Kali Yuga) to Golden age (Satya Yuga)
Right now, we are living in the iron age, the age of darkness and ignorance. The world is in a state of degeneration, chaos and eventual collapse. We, human beings, lack virtue and have become sinners. There is a decline in knowledge, wisdom, intellectual capability, lifespan, and physical and spiritual strength.
The direction of our moral compass is not directing to the north anymore, as compared to the golden age. We have become slaves of our senses, desires and passions. We have polluted our mother earth (environment) to such an extent that this process is irreversible now. Water and food have become scarce. Wars and social unrests have become the best and most profitable businesses. Family values are non-existent.
“We are shaped by our thoughts. We become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”
~ Buddha ~
Our thoughts have brought us to where we are right now. But we are still capable of creating the atmosphere of the golden age, the age of truth and perfection where virtue will reign supreme. We just need to change our thoughts to more positive and noble ones.
Here is how the golden age (Satya or Krita Yuga) has been described in the Mahabharata, a Hindu epic considered as the longest poem ever written.
“..there was no poor and no rich; there was no need to labour because all that men required was obtained by the power of will; the chief virtue was the abandonment of all worldly desires. the Krita Yuga was without disease; there was no lessening with the years; there was no hatred or vanity, or evil thought; no sorrow, no fear. All mankind could attain to supreme blessedness.”
We all want such a world
So, who would not like to live in such a world? No matter in which part of the world you are right now, you are craving for such a beautiful, paradise-like place like it was in the golden age (Satya Yuga).
The starting point, of making our world such a wonderful place to live, is to start creating positive and divine thoughts.
“Change your thoughts and you change your world.”
