The mind can never be peaceful. The mind can never have clarity. It’s not us. Thoughts are intruders.
The mind causes interference which interrupts true thoughts that come from the universal consciousness. Often, making the possibility of true enlightenment difficult.
We live in a world that seems to dislike silence.
No thoughts are original, all thoughts are borrowed. [a thought is a thing, a thing is a thought]
Therefore if we want to truly be at peace, perhaps we should start by listening to the universal consciousness, instead of to a mind that will one day pass away.
