All bad habits must be broken! Otherwise they become addictions that you can’t control! And then they dominate your life! And make you miserable!
Thinking is an addiction – it’s a habit of the mind that must be broken – and the only way to stop a bad habit is to quit it! So meditation is the practice of NOT THINKING – until you’re no longer addicted to it! Thinking dominates your life and dominates your mind and dominates your consciousness – all you can think about is your next thought! And you don’t even think that you can do anything about it – or that you should – and you think you’re a hopeless victim of your own mind – with no way to stop it and no way out!
