Maybe it's like becoming one with the cigar. You lose yourself in it; everything fades away: your worries, your problems, your thoughts. They fade into the smoke, and the cigar and you are at peace.
The degree of freedom from unwanted thoughts and the degree of concentration on a single thought are the measures to gauge spiritual progress.
Really, I'm incredibly disjointed and not candid. Just in general, my thoughts tend to come out in little spurts that don't necessarily connect. If you hang around long enough, you can find the linear path. But it will take a second. That is why these interviews never go well for me.
I want to know all Gods thoughts; all the rest are just details.
The actions of men are the best interpreters of their thoughts.
My mind withdrew its thoughts from experience, extracting itself from the contradictory throng of sensuous images, that it might find out what that light was wherein it was bathed... And thus, with the flash of one hurried glance, it attained to the vision of That Which Is.
There are a thousand thoughts lying within a man that he does not know till he takes up a pen to write.
William Makepeace Thackeray
Poetry should... should strike the reader as a wording of his own highest thoughts, and appear almost a remembrance.
Words ought to be a little wild, for they are the assaults of thoughts on the unthinking.
John Maynard Keynes
You need not aspire for or get any new state. Get rid of your present thoughts, that is all.

Whether he is an artist or not, the photographer is a joyous sensualist, for the simple reason that the eye traffics in feelings, not in thoughts.
Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends... Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts.
Henry David Thoreau
Man, alone, has the power to transform his thoughts into physical reality; man, alone, can dream and make his dreams come true.
Men use thought only as authority for their injustice, and employ speech only to conceal their thoughts.

Thoughts are the gun, words are the bullets, deeds are the target, the bulls-eye is heaven.
That's the most terrible thing about being an author - standing there at your mother's funeral, but you don't switch the author off. So your own innermost thoughts are grist for the mill. Who was it said - one of the famous lady novelists - 'unhappy is the family that contains an author'?
We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not figures on a dial. We should count time by heart throbs. He most lives who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.
Philip James Bailey

With the help of the Holy Ghost, we can watch over ourselves. We can pray to recognize and reject the first thoughts of sin. We can pray to recognize a warning not to speak words which would hurt or tempt someone else. And we can, when we must, pray for the humility and the faith to repent.
Henry B. Eyring
Your brain sends out vibrations all the time, and your thoughts affect your life and other people's. They pick up these thoughts and get changed by them.

Such as are your habitual thoughts, such also will be the character of your mind; for the soul is dyed by the thoughts.
John F. Kennedy
