An idea is a form crafted by self-conscious mind through a process of reflection upon experience whether originating in an external environment or the inner life. Human ability to contemplate ideas is associated with reasoning and a capacity make direct application of the intellect. Ideas may also be developed into more formal concepts through sustained and systematic evaluation as a means for expressing knowledge.
Words form as the result of thought, and thought constructed is a result of many factors such as insight, intuition, inspiration, and impressions. Though they be yours, the thought and the word, the initiation is complex. I remind you of the Divine Indwelling, my presence, my friends, your subconscious, your memory. It is a manifold interplay.- Darid
