    Bringing this back from the dead.

    I just started reading a new book. A few pages in, I stumbled across this. It explains what I was getting at with the topic question...but just couldn't explain well:


    The mind is a superb instrument when used rightly. Used wrongly however, it can become destructive. To put it more accurately, it is not so much that you use your mind wrongly - you usually don't use it at all. It uses you....

    Just because you can solve a crossword puzzle or design an atom bomb doesn't mean that you use your mind. Just as dogs love to chew bones, the mind loves to sink it's teeth into problems. That's why it does crossword puzzles and builds atom bombs. You have no interest in either. Let me ask you this: can you be free of your mind whenever you want to? Have you ever found the off button?


    The book is called "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle if any one is interested.

    YOu have no idea.

    I started listening to this HOLOSYNC stuff, thats really supposed to help with mental stability.
    I realized that yesterday ( first time trying it ) i feel asleep faster than i have had in 2 months, acutally remembered my dream, and woke up at 730 am with out an alarm!!!!

    hopefully, this will teach me to have an Off switch for my damn brain!!! ><

    practice meditation and thought distraction.
    Try to take up a hobby that will distract from overthinking.

    Erm, does anyone here just shut off sometimes? Like you enter a catatonic state where your brain is just sort of droning, but not really thinking? Maybe that's my brain's onn/off switch. Now if I could learn how to control it...

    My brain doesn't need an off switch. It needs a refresh button for when a bug occurs.

    EDIT:

    Make that an auto refresh every couple of weeks.

    The off switch would be handy for falling asleep, but for the daytime what I need most is the ON switch.

    ^Yes, I need that refresh button too! I often have that hourglass thingy (yes, my mind is old-school) frozen in my head from minutes to hours.

    Sometimes I wish I had a reset switch for when I am grappling with frustrating problems but going over the same ineffective points over and over.

    Spacing out. I have no idea why I do that (and so often) and neither do I know of a useful purpose or reason of being in zombie mode. Sometimes I'll be drifting along some train of thought... and then wonder where the hell I was for the last x seconds (or minutes? I can never tell.)

    yes, especially during bouts of insomnia
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
