Thinking all of the time is a habit, a destructive one at that. In my opinion, thinking is one of the most harmful habits on the planet. It causes a huge amount of conflict, self-violence, stress and suffering. As you let go of the mind you naturally rest back into the deep, clear and infinitely loving sea of consciousness that has been holding you your entire life. For many, it feels like coming home.
Meditation provides a safe arena to practice letting go of thinking too much. You can sit in the safety of your own home and in the comfort of your favourite chair (but not so comfortably that you will inevitably fall asleep!) and explore what it is like to rest in the still silent context of your conscious awareness.
Cultivating the habit of context awareness requires the investment of your time and the courage to stop and meditate for about 10 minutes, 2 times each day. Irrespective of how busy your mind says that you are and how much you need to get done, you do it anyway. With this kind of commitment, you can move mountains.
