"Most of mental burdens come from our thought or imagination which divides us and things around us.
Therefore, if we could realize this and understand it thoroughly, the burdens would fall off themselves and we are as light as from the beginning. I would like to emphasize this: what we need to do is to watch and see it, to understand thoroughly, entirely and not to try to stop the flow of thought or imagination. Why? If we try to stop it, it may stop a little while and after that it will be running again and maybe it will run double or triple or multiple times...then all of our efforts to stop it would go in vain."
