October 11th - Day 284
No thought lasts. You can check this out easily by just observing your thoughts. Notice that they just keep on falling, like rain - pitter patter, pitter patter, endlessly, until they don't. But when they don't fall, you don't notice it because there is nothing to notice. The mind can only notice what is evident to it, therefore, when there is no thought, there is no you (as in ego). Just like when you go into deep sleep, there is nothing at all - no time, no you. This happens countless times during the day but you don't notice it because you are not there then. You only know of you when there is a thought. All the rest of the time is Peace.
