At the outset, I feel, Dr. Chopra would never have to pay $ 1 Million to anyone. I give 3 reasons.
First, there can be no true atheist. That’s because the moment someone says he/she doesn’t believe in God, they themselves establish his existence. And since existence is established even not-believing becomes a form of believing. Like in science, matter is matter and anti-matter too is matter.
Second, Modern Science remains so unsure of its own discoveries. What one guy proves at one point, another refutes sometime later. Thus every few years we hear: Newton may be wrong; Einstein may be wrong; Big Bang may be wrong, etc. Another example: When we were young gripe water was seen boon for kids. Which doctor recommends that now? Thus any argument can be negated by a counter argument and debate may carry on for life. (E.g. Recent/ongoing discussion b/w @DeepakChopra & @BrianCox)
Yet the question remains: How a thought is formed?
Thought is formed in mind.
What is mind? Mind is that field of energy which is attached to our being and works as the nucleus of our existence guiding our thoughts and actions powered by the mysterious force that exists within us and makes us run our errands and live the thing that we call life.
It is like the control center where we may be the driver, but not necessarily always.
Now: Why not always? Because we are not the supreme! We are like a drop of the ocean, which though has all the properties of the ocean, yet we are not the ocean. So if the ocean goes on a high tide, so must we; in a warm current, we got to be warm and likewise.
Our thoughts are a result of our experiences and imageries of existence in the ocean. Its best for us to let the God wonder ‘how they are formed’, because more useful thing for us certainly is to understand that with mind, God has allowed us ‘Intellect’ as well. And that’s there because God wants us to use our capabilities to possess positive and progressive thoughts, no matter how rough the ocean may be.
Also, these thoughts, once persistent, can influence the treatment we get from the ocean and that’s perhaps where great leaders, thinkers and doers get born.
I feel, some matters of life are answered better through faith and this was one of them, even if that means foregoing an opportunity to make a million dollars.
Thank you Dr. Chopra for this wonderful thought-exercise. I had a beautiful afternoon figuring that out! Salutations!!!
