The Space in the Mind | May 2, 2015
Most of our suffering comes from
habitual thinking. If we try to stop it out of aversion to thinking, we
can’t; we just go on and on and on. So the important thing is not to get
rid of thought, but to understand it. And we do this by concentrating
on the space in the mind, rather than on the thought.
