How To Live Life Without Any Thoughts.

36 posts in this topic

I know that there have been some people in the past who have managed to stop all their thoughts and they lived their whole lives from that state. It's a pretty extraordinary thing to achieve, and I was wondering if anyone knew how to achieve that. Are there any practical ways to do it?

@How to be wise daily meditation and patience.

Really? I mean everyone meditates and virtually nobody reached it.

I don't know about no thoughts at all... but about the end of suffering and living your live in complete bliss 24/7 there are plenty of sages that have reached that state.

There have been sages in the past who have managed to turn off their thoughts and live in bliss. You can't live in bliss 24/7 without turning them off.

"How To Live Life Without Any Thoughts."

 

You can either be mindful (aware) or lost/immersed in the world (of thought). There is no other alternative.

You mean you don't want chronic fear/emotional suppression (and the fearful thought streams it creates).

Thinking in and of itself is no problem, but it usually is because thinking is used to avoid certain feelings.

Never heard of anyone who managed to live without thoughts.

@Toby I don't know about that, but the quote I just mentioned made my case. And anyways, I asked if you had any practical tips. If you don't believe that someone can stop their thoughts, please don't post here.

I think you are to stuck on the idea of thoughts. You can be enlightned and have no suffering and be in a 24/7 bliss state with thoughts. What more do you want?

You want practical tips? get your ass off this forum and start meditating on the I-feeling.

No one is going to do it for you.
