  • So then let's consider first of all what is a mind in the grip a vicious circles.

  • Well one of the most obvious instances that we all know is the phenomenon of worry.

  • The doctor tells you that you have to have an operation.

  • And that has been set up so that automatically everybody worries about it.

  • But since worrying takes away your appetite and your sleep

  • it's not good for you.

  • But you can't stop worrying

  • and therefore you get additionally worried that you are worrying.

  • And then furthermore because that is quite absurd

  • and your mad at yourself because you do it,

  • you are worried because you worry because you worry.

  • That is a vicious circle.

  • So now, can you

  • allow your mind to be quiet?

  • Isn't it difficult?

  • Because the mind seems to be like a monkey,

  • jumping up and down and jabbering all the time.

  • Once you've learned to think you can't stop.

  • And an enormous number of people

  • devote their lives to keeping their minds busy

  • and feel extremely uncomfortable with silence.

  • When you're alone

  • nobody's saying anything, there's nothing to do

  • just this worrying, this lack of distraction.

  • I'm left alone with myself

  • and I wanna get away from myself I always want to get away myself.

  • That's why I go to the movies,

  • that's why I go to the biscuit stores,

  • that's why I go after the girls or anything or get drunk or whatever.

  • I don't want to be with myself.

  • I feel queer.

  • So well why do you wanna run away from yourself? What's so bad about it?

  • Why do you want to forget this? Why do you want to become yourself?

  • Because you are addicted to thoughts.

  • This is a drug, too dangerous one.

  • Compulsive thinking, on and on and on and on all the time.

  • It's a habit.

  • So there's a difficulty about stopping that activity.

  • And you really have to stop it if you want to be sane.

  • Because if I talk all the time I don't hear what anyone else has to say.

  • And I'll end up in the situation of having nothing to talk about but my own talking.

  • And so exactly the same way if I think all the time

  • I won't have anything to think about except thoughts.

  • So in order to have something to think about,

  • there are times when you simply must stop thinking.

  • Well, how do you do that?

  • The first rule is don't try to.

  • Because if you do,

  • you will be like someone trying to make rough water smooth with a flatiron.

  • And all that will do will stir it up.

  • So in the same way as a muddy turbulent pool

  • quiets itself when left alone,

  • you have to know how to leave your mind alone.

  • It will quiet itself.

So then let's consider first of all what is a mind in the grip a vicious circles.
