Intransitive actions 自動詞の行動

Walking is an intransitive action which doesn't require an object like breathing. Concentrating on intransitive actions makes it easier for us to stop thinking. That's why we can easily return to true self (non-separate self) through mindful walking and breathing. The subject of walking and breathing is true self who is the root cause of all happiness. On the other hand, the subject of thinking is ego (separate self) who is the root cause of all sufferings. Thinking requires an object which is always an illusion through mental projection created by the subject, namely ego.
