Today’s first #kanji is #思. It’s written with 田 (rice field ⇒ to produce) and 心(こころ).

Your thoughts are product of your mind (心), so this makes sense.

BTW, 心 used in the bottom part of a kanji is actually called したごころ(下心), which does not mean the same as a common noun 下心, a secret intention/desire.
