See yourself sitting on a hill above a busy highway. The vehicles rush by. Think of all that traffic as your thoughts. They just keep going, don’t they?
If you try to prevent yourself from having thoughts, it’s like rushing out onto that busy highway and trying to stop the traffic. But that’s crazy!
So, just as the traffic keeps zooming by, let your thoughts do that.
YOU simply stay calm and serene sitting on that hill observing them. Pick the ones you will focus on. Let all the others just rush on by.
