The first thought is an original thought. Either you or someone else thinks of it first.
The source of original thought is the imagination! Original thought is imaginative thought.
Original thought is also positive. To be vital and positive, your thoughts will in some sense be original.
Be careful of recycling old thoughts. Old thoughts can be discouraging and can hurt your morale. It's better to think of something new.
Be careful of borrowing other people's thoughts as well. Let your thoughts be your own.
You don't need to strain your mind to have an original idea. Instead, let your original ideas come as a by-product of being highly imaginative.
You must constantly be returning to the source for your original thoughts. The source is Divine Spirit operating through your imagination.
