What is thought?

Is life possible without thought?

Obviously. Animals live before thought. Sages live beyond thought. Sages know thought. Animals don’t. Sages see and understand thought. Animals don’t. (Animals sense in humans the mood produced by a certain thought). Sages hold the entire human psyche (manifested as “the world”) in the palm of their hand, constantly observing it, never interfering.

Then, what is thought to life?

“Every twist of thought must be understood; for all thought is reaction and any action from this can only increase confusion and conflict. “
