Intelligence & Thought

Thought is always divisive. Thought arises from a point of view (identification) therefore there is only a partial view. If I were to identify with a view then I am likely to miss the point.



Silence

The only problem is that we focus on our thoughts and forget the background.



Man's thoughts

Trilok's picture



If a man's thoughts are muddy,
If he is reckless and full of deceit,
How can he wear the yellow robe?
Whoever is master of his own nature,
Bright, clear and true,
He may indeed wear the yellow robe

— Budhha

Your worst enemy

Trilok's picture



Your worst enemy cannot harm you
As much as your own thoughts, unguarded.
But once mastered,
No one can help you as much,
Not even your father or your mother

— Budhha



In Harmony

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

— Mahatma Gandhi



Love

Love is not an emotion or thought. Both pleasure and pain are equally binding. They condition and prevent fresh experiences of life and we do not have experiences as a child has.



"Amness"

MAI's picture



The consciousness, "I am" or just simple, "amness" with no "I", is not a thought. It is the very essential nature of our deepest being prior to thought. It is here before thought arises and it remain after thought subsides.

— Francis Bennet
