Thoughts are truly hard working…. ;-)Is there ever a break in the flow of thoughts?
No. I was surprised to find this.
Can’t you daydream of flying on a dragon or inventing the cure for cancer?I am not sure if 'everything is possible' in my thoughts. I may again be getting confused as regards thoughts and feelings but my upbringing didn't develop an 'anything is possible' vibe. Instead, it developed restrictive thoughts and feelings.
Doesn’t it seem as if thoughts have power, at least several meters of book try telling us how we can influence our future? This “create your own world” books?
I think therefore I am????
Did you find this ’I’ anywhere when directly looking?If there is no ‘I’ as controller, thinker, decider, what we try to prove here, how can the ‘I’ stop a thought?
It looks like it can't.
How can something which is a figment of mind/aka thoughts stop something or do something?
The ‘I’ is either an existing something or not.
This is a cool but slightly confusing thing, we can explore thoughts with thoughts.This is more difficult to answer using solely AE. Maybe because thoughts never stop, ie. they are ever present, they appear to be so important and therefore that there must be an important 'I' controlling them. All my other answers to this question depend upon thought...
A little bit of confusion here too.
And yes, they never stop telling this self referencing story.
