I like to Not Think.

In inner-stillness I find peace.

Often, in a wide variety of settings, it is nice to relax the body completely, cease all thought, and just absorb all the sights and sounds around me like a sponge.

I do this also when listening to other people talk.  I just let go of everything, relax the body, look deep into their eyes, and absorb the conversation.

vertical line A novel approach to peace - talking about it and no sign of it - never looked me in the eyes once.  Must be something to do with the kind of thinking you do here. Yes, it must be very tiring, very wearing.

condtioning of the mind to attempt to control way ward thoughts is seen for what it is. i have no artifical discipline.

Love everything as it is

What is the purpose of learning to control your thoughts?

What can we truly control in this world, except out ability to give up the need to control?

It is okay Rustic.

You do not have to understand.  You do not have to do anything.

I am finding you easier and easier to ignore.  And you may yet benefit from the exposure to higher thought and ideals that you encounter here.  If not in this lifetime, then perhaps another.

We are here, in this Zen Study Group of sorts, to help others to find inner peace, as well as to reinforce our own through the sharing of understanding.

Seeing is believing.  You just have not seen anything yet.  Maybe you will.

I have found also that it is hard to think negative thoughts when smiling.

So often when I go to the place of inner-silence inside I set a little smile on my face,

That triggers endorphins too I am told, which make you feel good.

So it feels good to relax the body, set a smile, and kick back in silence for awhile.
