A picture is truly worth a thousand words. Why? Well, it may just have something to do with the subconscious mind. Even one of the Greatest Teachers of all time Jesus Christ, spoke in parables. He painted pictures with his words. It was even noted that he would not speak to the people unless he spoke to them this way. This is however, less about religion and more about universal law.
Some say that the subconscious mind is the key to creating whatever it is in life that we desire. Our thoughts in the form of pictures being the seed in the ground of our fertile minds. Some schools of thoughts feel that this all has to do with the law of attraction and our visualization habits.
If it is true that what you focus on grows… some contemplation on focusing on ways to be more productive in creating the life you want is at least worth looking into!
