Meeting your thoughts with understanding. A thought is harmless. Unless we believe it, it's not our thoughts, but the attachment to our thoughts that causes suffering, attaching to a thought means believing that it's true without inquiring a belief is a thought that we've been attaching to often for years. Most people think that they are what their thoughts tell them. They are. One day I noticed that I wasn't breathing. I was being breathed. Then I also noticed to my amazement that I wasn't thinking that I was actually being thought and that thinking isn't personal. Do you wake up in the morning and say to yourself? I think I won't think today it's too late. You're already thinking thoughts just appear, they come out of nothing and go back to nothing like clouds, moving across the empty sky. They come to pass, not to stay. There's no harm in them until we attach to them as if they were true. No one has ever been able to control his thinking. Although many may tell the story of how they have. I don't let go of my thoughts. I meet them with understanding. Then they let go of me thoughts are like the breeze or the leaves on the trees or the raindrops falling, they appear like that. And through inquiry, we can make friends with them. Would you argue with a raindrop? Raindrops aren't personal and neither are thoughts once a painful concept is met with understanding the next time it appears, you may find it interesting. What used to be the nightmare is now just interesting.
