Have you ever thought about “thoughts”?

Post by AiR_Ravimelwani on Thu Apr 07, 2016 10:20 am

Have you ever thought about “thoughts” and what thoughts do to our life?

In general, we think over 50 thoughts a minute. What happens because of these thoughts? The mind is constantly working like a machine, and hence there is no silence, stillness or peace to actually go within and to introspect and see what lies within. Is it not true?

Try this: Stay still for exactly 60 seconds, just 1 minute, and observe your mind. Check whether your mind can stay still without thinking for just 1 minute. You will be amazed at the result! You will come to know the speed at which your mind produces thoughts.  

Because of this frequent production of thoughts, we are unable to meditate, to contemplate, and to introspect on important questions of life: Who we are? What are we? Where did we come from? Where we will go? What is the goal and purpose of life? All these often-ridiculed questions remain unanswered only because the mind is in constant motion and constant action like a monkey. The mind doesn’t stay still; it keeps jumping from one thought to another. Therefore I believe that, the first goal of spiritual life – yes, you are thinking right – is to still the mind or to silence the mind and then you won’t need somebody else to tell you what the reality is. You will realize the truth yourself!
