"Is that product of mine the reality, or is it the thought which caused the product the reality? We all look in the direction of our product, thinking mistakenly that the thing which we have created is the real thing."
I say that the real substance of any product whatsoever is not in the product at all, but is only in the thought behind the product. The thought itself is never created; it is but given symbolic form. The thought belongs to the thinker and to other thinkers who are capable of interpreting the symbolic form in which he expresses his thought. Thought and inspiration have no dimension whatsoever; they belong to the unseen and unseeable world. Those things you and I produce –things which can be seen, felt, sold and bartered –have no meaning whatsoever except the meaning that people can give them by the ability of the original creative thinker to transfer his thoughts to other people, and by their ability to reflect the light of another thinker upon their own consciousness.
