We Don't Think As Often As We Think We Do

Wednesday, 21st November 2012

I am not referring to the automotive kind of thinking. That's the normal, continuous activity of our autonomic nervous system. Wilfully directing the mind to a chosen object for an elongated period of time requires a lot of energy but it also produces great satisfaction.

The majority of us deliberately think only for two wasteful purposes: that of sexual arousal and worry. Outside of these, we rarely think.

Thinking is a satisfying experience. Most of what has been created resulted from it. We (individually) must do it more often.
