Are you afraid of thinking?

Are you afraid of thinking? Why are you so? What makes us think that thoughts are not perfect. Is it not because that we want thoughts to stop because we dont want its consequences? Say it is bringing confusion, conflict and all that and thus pain. But it one can just patiently wait conflicts merge and pain seize to be. I am evident to it. It is O.K. to think as it is O. K. to eat. It is perfectly o.k. if thoughts are not coming.

Not the thinking itself

I reaaly like your clear and direct approach, aditya!

It is not the thinking itself but the identification with the thinking, the absorbtion into the thinking which is on top of just being.

Thoughts can be there like clouds on top of the being sky but as soon as one is taken by the trhoughts, he is not just being.

again in the same trap

what is the problem in getting obsobed in thinking? Is it not because that at some point of time and space you might have experienced something that you explain as nonthinking and "just In the being" and that you want to experience that moment of clarity again. But this wanting is what not allowing you to be peaceful. Do u think that being is different from thought. BEING by defination is so big and vast that it is all inclusive. It is NOT going to be effected by weather thoghts pop up or not. REST and RELAX

Why sit silent?

Must we restrict ourselves to sitting? Must we force ourselves to be silent?

Silence does not mean physical silence and siting is not cross legged. by "sitting silently" I maen our addiction to need of cahnaging things , inside or outside. and this is not compulsary at all. if one loves to run enlessly he can and should. if one wants to enjoy or blame a flower he should b efree to do so from all sides. one should not blame himself or others for not being "SILENT SITTING". iT IS JUST ONE LUXURY
