Action & Inspiration

"We should be taught not to wait for inspiration to start a thing. Action always generates inspiration. Inspiration seldom generates action." - Frank Tibolt

Thought precedes action or action precedes thought? Sounds like which came first? Chicken or egg?

Even a small action can generate a lot of thoughts. Can a thought generate action? Although it seems like thought is the very origin of action, somehow power of thought seems much less than action. "Thought is the action in rehearsal."

Regardless of whether thought can generate action, scriptures say 'thinking is like action already in progress.' Life cycle of an action begins with the thought. That's why they say we do not necessarily have to do bad things, even thinking about them credits sins into our ever bulging sin account.

'Aim to shoot. Shoot to kill.' - can be changed to 'think to act.'
