vertical line I knew a guy who had peace of mind not thinking, until his stomach got hungry and he couldn't think how to get food, and then he fell down because he couldn't think to pay attention to where he was going.

vertical line If your "peace of mind" from "not thinking" is something that "you can feel it right away", then that's not endless, pure, clear Mind. It's just some feeling you got, and it will pass just as quickly as anything else.

No peace of mind at all.

Instead of thinking about how to get food why didn't he just look?

vertical line When the body is in need of more food it sends messages via neaurological pathways in the body to the brain, we then experince a thought, i'm hungry, or i'm thirsty, or i have pain, you cannot escape these thoughts. Although however we can stop wandering thoughts of accusation, and discrimination that lead to restlessness and anger this would be really beneficial to our happinness.
