Thoughts are nonexistent in and of themselves. Rather, they occur in the mind.
The mind derives from desires.
Our desires derive from the desire that exists in nature.
The desire that exists in nature derives from the intention that exists in nature.
Such a chain manifests in us in order to create desires. Accordingly, desires surface thoughts, and thoughts weave together the mind.
When a certain network of thoughts forms within us, which we can own and operate, we can then evaluate our desires—the influences from nature—and try to connect our mind with nature’s mind, and our desires with nature’s desires.
Desires are primary, and the mind serves them. It turns out that the size and versatility of our desires corresponds to the size of our mind that tries to serve and satisfy them.
