When I watch the mind , thinking stops.When I am in the present or focus on breathing thinking stops. Is this correct?
If yes,how do I take this forward for longer time.

Awareness and thinking

Yes, the gross thinking stops. Note that there is still subtle waves of thinking (like the one who notices that thinking stops, the thinking that decides to stop the awareness, etc.).

The reason is that until a very advanced stage, our observer involves also our mind. At some point you will see that you are witnessing the thoughts and they continue on their own.

Why take it further? Focus on the awareness rather than on the thinking. It is only a by product of your awareness.
