Today noticed some Traffic sign boards on Highway during morning walk , a thought came what is the speed limit of our thinking and imagination ?
Are we HOT ( Highway of thoughts ) ?
Mind is a Highway of thoughts generated by activation of our senses and nonsenses and most of the time it may witness Traffic Jam of various thoughts of different colors and our inclination on any thought get it parked in our Brain’s memory temporary or permanent slot .
A new study has suggested that an average person has 6,200 thoughts per day. Thousands of thoughts cross our mind through the day. Many people even complain that they can’t sleep immediately after going to bed as their brain does not stop thinking.
Mind is a bridge between I and Eye or Self and Senses.
Brain is a Super computer of immense capacity and users friendly .
But most of the people complain about Monkey Mind and Donkey Brain . Why ?
Enjoy the story before we Stop at Zebra Crossing for us to cross the river of thoughts with a Cool mind and Silent Brain .
Story: One day while Zen monk Tanzan and a young monk were traveling, they came to a river with a strong current. As they were preparing to cross the river, they saw a young lady in distress also attempting to cross.
Tanzan offered, “Here, let me carry you across,” and placed her down gently on the other side.
The lady said, “Thank you very much. Goodbye.” The two continued on their journey for more than half a day.
Finally, the younger monk could not contain himself any longer, and blurted out, “I thought we monks were supposed to avoid women. Why did you just do that?”
“Oh, you mean the woman way back there? I put her down long ago. Are you still carrying her?”
Love this Sign of Zebra Crossing where a Pedestrian crossing the Stripes of Black and White with Cool mind and Silent Brain .
Black and White are synonymous with Detachment and Attachment , Dislike and like , Negative and Positive , Past and Future , Time and Timeless and Body and Soul …… and many more faces of Duality.
Brain get activated by stepping on Black as well as on White , so if you say Yes to a thought or say No to any thought but it get parked into the memory space of brain so how to have silent Zone in our Cluttering Mind and Overloaded Brain .
Pedestrian is synonymous of Referee who is neither attached nor detached with any Players of Duality who walks in Silence Zone of Now .
Referee is one who is alert , aware in present moment with Cool mind and Silent Brain
Enlightenment 360 degree is to be a Referee in Game of Time and Timelessness witnessing it with Neutral Mind.
