Thoughts

On page 105 of "Miscellaneous Writings" we find these words: "Truth destroys error. Nothing appears to the physical senses but their own subjective state of thought. The senses join issue with error, and pity what has no right either to be pitied or to exist, and what does not exist in Science. Destroy the thought of sin, sickness, and death, and you destroy their existence. "Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."

How little do we realize that the questionable thoughts which we so often, consciously or unconsciously, harbor in our minds are the forerunners of the unhappy conditions that must follow. Later, those conditions seem to govern us, in that we are afraid of them, try to flee from them, and worry over them. If we wished to paint a beautiful picture we would surely think it very foolish to use or allow to be used bad materials (or thoughts) in its construction, and yet are we not just as foolish respecting other things?
