How to stop thinking?

By Being! When you think you are an object, a person, a body or some other idea, but by Being there is nothing. Just Being! And this Being is already Here. You are always Being. To become something you must meditate and perform some mantra, ritual or practice. Just to BE is simple. Without Being you can’t do any practice.

So don’t think of anything else. Just Be!

It is so easy to Be.

Thinking happens when you want to become something. Then you must think. But to not become something what is there to do? Stay as you are!

Be as you are

in whatsoever circumstances,

just always Be.

It doesn’t need any practice. Whatever you get by practice you will lose, but Being will never be lost because you will not get it by any experience or practice. It simply is. Simply Be.

Don’t stir your mind in Being, don’t think and don’t make any effort. I will tell you how to Be the Being itself: No effort, no thinking. Avoid thinking and avoid not thinking. What is between these two?

Don’t move, don’t move,

don’t move your mind. That is all.

Keeping Quiet is the Highest Tapas, the Greatest Yoga,

and the most beautiful Devotion.

This is Being.
