thinking mind…

I think
we think too much.
Everyone’s always
just thinking.
Thinking about this, thinking about that.
Someone wrote today something along the lines of “we become what we think the most of”.
I can see this true.
But why think at all?
We must make reasonable decisions for our health and safety and all that other stuff but all of that mind all of that chitta;
Why must we think at all?
Some people are afraid to be alone.
Afraid to hear what’s in their mind.
How can one live with oneself when all they do is run from it?
How can we escape the mind?
How can you escape the things that lie within it?
Are the things that lie within our heads the same that resides in our souls? In our essence??
The thinking mind…
The monkey mind…
Can we escape the thoughts?
Can you escape your urges?
Your need for things that matter in the matter but nothing beyond?
How can we move beyond this–this,
Escape your feelings, escape your thoughts, run away from it all. Tell me how far you get.
Are you surviving?
Are you living?
Are you hiding?
Have you found the no-mind my masters have talked of?
And have you gotten there gracefully? Truthfully? Naturally?
Escape the mind because you know what’s underneath.
You know what’s within.
Escape the mind because there’s something in you that see’s beyond the veil. That see’s your hands and words pass through matter in particles of vibration piercing the ears of delicate ones.
Not for your sensual gratification.
Because it feels good.
Because it’s better than what you call reality.

Om shanti shanti shanti
