The Energy follows the Thought!
When the Thought derives from selfishness implies emotions and feelings of possession, then it is the Thought that in turn follows the Energy.
It’s like biting your own tail. It becomes an endless vicious ride that grows more and more emotionally. When you come to the conscious understanding of your selfishness and its effects, then you take a step forward with the will to transform your thoughts, feelings, actions, without the rejection of the effects that occurred in the past. Indeed, thanking the past misunderstanding that has become conscious in the present.
