The Art of Meditation - Alan Watts

This quote was added by trans1000
A person who thinks all the time has nothing to think about except thoughts. So... he loses touch with reality, and lives in a world of illusions. By thoughts I mean specifically, chatter in the skull. Perpetual and compulsive repetition of words, of reckoning and calculating. I'm not saying that thinking is bad. Like everything else, it's useful in moderation. A good servant, but a bad master.
