What we think is what gets manifested, it is what gets created into our actions, words, reactions and so on.
If we attach ourselves to our thoughts, our ego and the stories, then that is what will get manifested into the outside world and it is what we will create.
If we detach ourselves from that, the ego, and let our true essence, soul and heart flow, then that is what the mind will manifest into action, words, and so on. Then the outcome will be a different one in the exterior world, and we and others will see the true person, not our thoughts and ego.
The mind is a tool for us to use to manifest our real self, the only self, not to do the work of the ego, the little story. The mind isn’t there to control us, it is we who uses the mind. We can only manifest the best when it comes from our true being and not from the false ego created self.
