Quote of the day

13 November 2019

Before a thought arises, do you know it is going to
come? You cannot decide, ‘Oh, I’m only going to have
Jesus-thoughts today,’ or, ‘I dedicate this space for
only Buddha’s words and contemplations this week.’

Thoughts arise arbitrarily and unannounced, but this
by itself is not thinking. Thinking begins when the
arising thought connects with the thinker-thought,
the thinker-identity. Out of this communion, thinking
is produced. Know that both the thoughts and the
thinker of thoughts are one: mind. When it is seen that
even the thinker is a thought believed into existence,
the power or force of the psychological mind dissipates,
and peace prevails.
