Abilities and Afflictions of Mind - Part 9 : Curiosity and Thinking

January 11, 2018

In this part we see that curiosity is an essential and necessary ability for a seeker. It is something much deeper and meaningful than merely questioning. Curiosity is identified as the main reason that puts anyone on a path. We see thinking as a complex of mental activities that are almost impossible to stop, and we discover that thinking is not a problem for a seeker, overthinking and unconscious thinking is. Afflicted thinking is nothing but suffering, an uncomfortable and negative state of the mind.
