"It is enough to detach from your thoughts and ignore them. A simile would be, what happens to your friends whom you ignore. If you have a friend and the friend is talking to you, telling you things, and you ignore your friend, what happens? The friend will walk away. The friend will go away and that will be the end of the friend. And he or she will no longer be your friend. For you have ignored them totally, completely. You’ve not scolded them. You have not lectured your friend. You have not been evil to your friend. You have just ignored your friend. Your friend will back away and go away, because your friend gets no response from you whatsoever. This is how you want to treat your thoughts, same way."

"As soon as you see something, you already start to intellectualize it. As soon as you intellectualize something, it is no longer what you saw."
