The origin of the English word “thinking” was actually “thanking.” This is also true in French, Dutch, German, fresian, old Anglo-Saxon, and possibly more… 

how does this make sense? 

it could be that originally all of our thoughts were prayers 

all our thoughts served to connect us with creation 

our thoughts are not fenced off in a separate individualistic bubble 

our thoughts are sent out and meet with other thoughts in a field

thought is social and interactive 

it is not an individual thought that creates reality

it is the field of interaction 

between your thought and my thought 

this is the beautify of dialogue and of exchange
