Have you ever tried to be free of thoughts?
You must have started thinking.
Am I right?
Did you notice the spontaneity and rapidity of thoughts?
Why do you start thinking without any efforts?
Is it inherit quality?
Is it so from the very beginning of your evolution?
No, it is not that you were thoughtful from the very beginning of mankind.
You have been constantly forced to think and think continuously. Your society, your religion, your country wants you to think.
Thinking capacity has been labeled equivalent to intelligence.
Although it is untrue.
Intelligence is not traditional, intelligence is creative.
Intelligence is not borrowed but thinking is mostly borrowed. You can see the pattern of thinking. You can predict thoughts.
Now you must be thinking that why I am telling you to become thoughtless when everyone else around you is constantly forcing you to accumulate more and more thoughts and organize these in your store room of brain.
I know that the ability to think is the most important difference between human and rest of the animal kingdom. We have this gift. We can think, we can force other to think. We can force others to think like us and this brings the devil inside you. Thinking is important but thinking one thing repeatedly and repeatedly or repeating one thought repeatedly and repeatedly is neurotic or imbecile attitude and unfortunately the same is going on in our family, society and nation.
You are thinking constantly but still very few people lead you to wrong ways and you imbibe their thinking.
This is happening again and again in every nook and corner of this world. This is happening because you do not have the capacity to drop your thoughts, you do not have control over your own thoughts, and even most of you do not have their own thoughts.
Try to learn the state of thoughtlessness, practice thoughtlessness if you really want to master over your own thoughts. Thoughtlessness will bring logical thinking, rational action and will improve your capacity to deal effectively with varying situations.
In simple words thoughtlessness will bring intelligence.
