When a monk was traveling on the road, he met an old woman, and asked:
-I would like to know which way that leads to Chao-chou, would you please give me the direction?
The old waman replied:
-Just go straight, don't make any...
Sometimes I am confused whether I am thinking thoughts, or whether thoughts enter from elsewhere. Because it is impossible to think a thought and recognize you are the thinker while you are thinking the thought.
Try to be aware of a your mind and at the same time try to recite something in your head. It doesn't work. At best it is an on-off switch (thought-thinker-thought-thinker...)
