Always thoughts of the future, thoughts of sorrows of the heart, happy things, sad things. So much thinking, so many wants. Approximately 70,000 thoughts, actually, daily, and we try as hard as possible to chase every one of them. No wonder there is no balance. No wonder there is no harmony. Approximately 7 billion beings each with 70,000 thoughts, all chasing as many of them as possible, creating a world in the image of their own thoughts. It is a mess! Pure messiness!
Put them down!
What would happen if the next desire that popped into your head, you simply didn’t follow it? Instead it just came and went like a crowd of people passing by a street shop window; Their reflections showing when they are there, but gone when they are not. The glass does not follow the reflection, but reflects anything that is in front of it, nonetheless — and nothing when it’s not.
