Thoughts Thinking Thoughts?

We've become convinced that the thinking mind must get answers to all our questions. 

But what we fail to see is that the thinking mind generates the very questions that it is trying to answer. In this sense, the thinking mind is trying to control that which it cannot. The thinking mind can't affect this moment. The thinking mind can't change or control anything, even its own thoughts.

All the thinking mind does is divide and categorize and question. We confuse this voice with our identity, if only because it is such a constant part of our experience. But it can't be what we are, because of that very fact--it is an experience, not the experiencer.

The experiencer doesn't ask any questions. And with no questions, there is no need for answers.
