interesting thread, Sun Chariot!
I do also agree with DownwardSpiral that our thoughts can become our reality. Perhaps that is why prayer works sometimes. I realize that not every prayer is going to be answered the way we want it to each and every time we do pray for something, but I think it can help. Prayer also can be a thought--it doesn't have to be recited phrases that we do over and over again.
Thanks. I didnt see anything about phrases you repeat over and over. More of a heartfelt thought, which would be closer to prayer. But what I got was that itvwas what was in you heart, the strength of the desire and it's source maybe. Not that every heartfelt desire becomes destiny. It seems the universe has the final say, bur what I saw anyway was that when sonething does manage to become destiny this is how it starts. That is what I saw anyway.
