Thoughts

Religion, spirituality and philosophy are made of thoughts.
Without thoughts there would be no religion, spirituality 
or philosophy of life. But what are they made of?
What is a thought, really?
A fluctuation in an electromagnetic field? Chemical reactions?

What do you experience in the gap between two thoughts?
Well, you see something, hear something and feel something.

Not having thoughts for a moment 
is not necessarily a mystical experience.

Religious and spiritual people's main interest 
is the world behind the world we live in, the metaphysical realm.
Philosophically minded people are more interested in this world.

This is the reason why we don't get along.
Our thoughts separate us.
Thinking is a mysterious phenomenon.
Nobody knows what thoughts are made of.
They can be silly, stupid, funny, clever, dark, elevated, delusional...
Therefore they must always be examined and questioned.
Is this just stupid stuff or is this thought helpful in some way?
