Right Thought is thought that supports Healing and Connection. Right thought is thought that supports the expansion of consciousness into the physical unit. Right thought is thought that is in perfect alignment with one's own Resident Monadic Self, Highest Self, or "soul."


Right Thought is one of a trinity of considerations (the others being Right Environment and Right Action) that, when taken together, provide the foundations of Healing and Connection. Taken together, right thought, action, and environment constitute the LPs Alignment Rule Set

Right thought is established by replacing Old Energy ideas and archetypes with New Energy ideas and archetypes. Use the Triumph of Spirit Archetype System to help.

Right Thought and Right Action are particularly important when it comes to the process of aligning the physical unit with its resident monadic consciousness or "animating spark." Since alignment of the physical unit the resident monadic consciousness is an essential prerequisite, establishing right thought (not to mention right action) is a critical precursor to unfolding of consciousness into the vessel.

On the Lightning Path, right thought is the equivalent of the Jainism's samyak darshan (right perception) + samyak jnana (right knowledge). On the Lightning Path, right thought is a combination of right perception and right knowledge.

The Zoroastrian Gathas open with statements about "good thought", good words, and good deeds. "I praise good thoughts, good words, and good deeds and those that are to be thought, spoken, and done. I do accept all good thoughts, good words, and good deeds. I do renounce all evil thoughts, evil words, and evil deeds. " GBd Introduction, 4

GBD 11. 17 "I celebrate my praises for good thoughts, good words, and good deeds for my thoughts, my speeches, and (my) actions. With chanting praises I present all good thoughts, good words, and good deeds, and with rejection, I repudiate all evil thoughts, and words, and deeds"

Emanuel Swedenborg speaks about right thought in the context of his discussion of Inner Self and Outer Self in New Jerusalem, though he does not give it a name, and his discussion is vague and confused (Swedenborg, 2016: 3: 42-).
