Question: Can our thoughts develop our desire, and if so, how?
Answer: Thought influences desire and desire influences thought. We see that through our daily struggles.
If I have a very small desire for something, but I begin to think about it more and more and thus constantly develop and nurture these thoughts, as a result, my desires grow many times more. And vice versa, the desire can influence our thoughts, and if the desire changes, a certain thought can disappear.
Our desires are the main thing, whereas our thoughts were given to us in order to increase the desire, to focus, format, and fulfill them.
