“While light travels at the rate of 186,000 miles per second, thoughts virtually travel in no time.” Sri Swami Sivananda
Like light is known to be energy, thought is also considered to be energy. It is interesting that by many light has been considered to be the fastest thing in the universe, yet the Law of Attraction states that there can be an almost instant response to thought.
Not only is the energy of thought powerful in terms of speed, but also in terms of it being able to take different forms. We can see visually that water can take different forms with it being able to exist as a solid, liquid and gas. It is similar with the energy of thought, by thinking different thoughts, energy is transformed and this same energy can then manifest in different ways.
The stronger the focus, the greater the transformation
Focused thought or awareness leads to energy being transformed. As with light being focused through a magnifying glass being able to start a fire, the more focused the mind is, the more powerful the transformation.
Therefore practices that develop our ability to focus such as meditation are very beneficial in transforming energy.
Energy transforms in a state of acceptance
One of the most powerful methods for allowing energy to transform is acceptance. In its natural state thought energy is free flowing and what is wanted can manifest. However, if there are any contradictory beliefs these can cause the energy to flow less freely.
As beliefs are only thoughts that we keep thinking any hindering beliefs can be changed by practising better feeling thoughts and this will lead to the energy transforming and what is wanted being able to be created.
The better we feel, the more powerful the impact of thinking
“This moment, this love, comes to rest in me
many beings in one being
In one wheat grain a thousand sheep stacks
Inside the needle’s eye
a turning night of stars….” Rumi
As the excerpt from the poem by Rumi describes, in the state of positive emotion that occurs when energy flows unresisted there is tremendous leverage.
Emotions aren’t dependent on different energies flowing but rather different emotions come from the same energy and the extent to which the energy is flowing freely. Therefore when we are practising any techniques that assist us in coming into greater alignment we can determine whether the techniques are moving us in the right direction by how we feel.
