Time to say goodbye to your brain!

Why don't we stop thinking any more?

René Descartes said, "I think; therefore I am", but it is wrong.

"I think; therefore I am not" is correct.

The truth is "I don't think; therefore I am".

That's because a thinker is wandering in the past or the future and thinking is a proof of not living in the present moment.

If consciousness is wandering in the past, we suffer from our regrets.

If consciousness is wandering in the future, we suffer from our worries and insecurities.

If we are not alive in the present moment, we can't touch the wonders of life.

If we stop thinking, we will have calm mind and attain insight.

Insight is something like intuition or inspiration.

We don't get tired at all because we don't think.

We don't have to waste our energy by thinking.

The easiest method to stop thinking is to concentrate on our breathing.

Then we can touch the wonders of life.

It's time to say goodbye to your brain.

It's time to live as subconscious.

“You must be completely awake in the present to enjoy the tea. Only in the awareness of the present, can your hands feel the pleasant warmth of the cup. Only in the present, can you savor the aroma, taste the sweetness, appreciate the delicacy. If you are ruminating about the past, or worrying about the future, you will completely miss the experience of enjoying the cup of tea. You will look down at the cup, and the tea will be gone. Life is like that. If you are not fully present, you will look around and it will be gone. You will have missed the feel, the aroma, the delicacy and beauty of life. It will seem to be speeding past you. The past is finished. Learn from it and let it go. The future is not even here yet. Plan for it, but do not waste your time worrying about it. Worrying is worthless. When you stop ruminating about what has already happened, when you stop worrying about what might never happen, then you will be in the present moment. Then you will begin to experience joy in life.” ― Thích Nhất Hạnh
