Our thoughts as a source of suffering

How powerful are our minds? Fear can cause our bodies to produce energy, preparing the body for fight or flight. Anger and stress causes our hearts to work harder.  Some consider our thoughts as energy. This energy is converted to another form of energy, affecting other parts of our bodies, like the heart and our muscles.

It is this reasoning, that some consider our thoughts as a source of energy. Can evil thoughts be a source of energy that causes suffering to a healthy body? Let us propose that evil (greed, arrogance, and self love) thoughts generated in the mind are converted to negative energy. This negative energy may travel to other parts of the body converting to chemical energy like toxins that affect our healthy tissues. Can disease and illness originate from our minds?

If these negative energies from our thoughts are released from our bodies, can they bring upon natural disasters? Are destruction from hurricanes and earthquakes a result of the negative thoughts produced by the world?  Can negative thoughts bring upon individual sufferings like accidents and tragedies?

Where does God play a part in this scheme of energy transfer from our minds? In the Tip of the Writing Brush it is foretold that God will work to teach the world that our thought have an affect on our future. It is with this plan that the prophets and messengers have been sent to teach the world about the consequences of our negative thoughts.
