Thought is not evil

Where are your thoughts coming from? Are your thoughts coming from Godliness, goodness, and Shiva-ness? Keep thinking. It’s just that you won’t be able to think for too long, just as Shiva does not keep dancing always.

You will think, as a kid plays, and then the kid goes to sleep. Thoughts too will go to sleep. Thoughts will have no obligation to indefinitely continue. Thought is sick when thought is circular-constrained and continues indefinitely in its vicious circle.

There is understanding without thought and there is understanding with thought as well.

Just as there is Truth, formlessly, and there is Truth, formed as well.

There will be occasions when the Truth will strike you like a thunderbolt, like a flash of lightning.

And understanding will be complete in a split second. And there will be occasions when you will be required to think.

Thought is not a taboo. Thought is not evil. You have no mandate to chase thought with a double barrel gun. Let thought be.
