“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”
As a rational being, thinking is a vital faculty in the human’s brain. Most times we end up in an endless loops of thoughts in the mind.
WHAT IS THINKING?
Thinking is the cognitive activities you use to process information, solve problems, make decisions, and create new ideas. You use your thinking skills when you try to make sense of experiences, organize information, make connections, ask questions, make plans, or decide what to do. Thinking is the activity of using your brain by considering a problem or possibility or creating an idea.
Close your eyes for a few moments. You’ll soon be aware of thoughts streaming through your mind — thoughts reminding you of the jobs you haven’t done, anxious thoughts about the future, fragments of memories, images of people you know, or snatches of songs you’ve recently heard.Now try to stop this stream of thought. See if you can experience a clear, empty mind, with no impressions or associations running through it. Hence, without thinking it will be impossible to do such mental exercises.
Thinking is impossible until death comes.! Our brain is always active whether we’re fully conscious or asleep. In fact, it’s even more active while we sleep.Whenever we try to rest and not think anything, our brains reverts back to these activities. This is the theory of the mind.
However, just as thinking, meditation and mindfulness practices enables us to identify the rights and wrongs and in decision making, it’s important we need to note that “a brain without the thinking faculty is a no brain.” Thoughts are fuelled by the attention we give to them.
