There is nothing else but thought, except in those moments of no thought.
People tell me I need to clarify this, so I’ll try. The only thing that can ever give us an experience is our own thinking. But what exists in the seconds or microseconds in between thoughts? I would say it’s pure consciousness–consciousness uncontaminated by our thinking. It’s the formless energy of Mind becoming One with our consciousness in the purest form we can experience it. It’s pure peace of mind, pure love, the incubation space for pure wisdom to come through, and the ability to have thought waiting to happen. Yes, we can only have an experience of the “pure”t through Thought, but that is already contaminating it somewhat. However, in those moments when our mind does shut down and our thoughts clear, what is left? Something way bigger than thought.
