Water is all over the air, but when air is subjected to the process of condensation, we get water. Similarly, ideas/ thoughts are all over, but when subjected to the process of contemplation, they become accessible to us. When a thought is held for a long duration of time and processed though the machinery of contemplation, then life sutras are produced. Open-eyed Meditation is a book of 'thought sutras' that can become 'life sutras'.
