Yesterday I thought to myself.. Hmmm, think I'll have a cup of tea. (I'd been on a coffee binge.)
So off to the kitchen I went, and got half way through making myself a coffee before I realized that "hey! Damn it, I wanted to make a tea."
So, a little annoyed with myself, I rinsed out the coffee and started making my tea.
That in my mind is an example of first thought failing to materialize because it lacked emotion.. & the 2nd (same thought) and resulting actions materializing because they were sponsored and supported by an emotion, all be it one of annoyance..
I know this example does sound like simple every-day absent mindedness.. But when you juggle both examples around in your head, and compared the 1'st and 2nd instances of making a drink it's easy to see what was absent in my mind when my intention initially failed..
Thoughts aren't half as powerful if they aren't supported by energy (emotion).. They just linger, meander and operate robotically..
