I always wonder with television.
Television projects thousands of images at all times.
Our mind projects thousands of images at all times.
But, the difference is clear.
Television is never distorted and got confused by thousands of images projected by it.
Because television knows all are just the play of light - electric signals. Television sit still nicely in front of the table, never ever shake even for a second, extreme still in the middle of tornado images.
Without any intention to remove the images, the television is extremely still because it knows the images are just not real.
But, we always get agitated by the images in our head.
Because we do not know the nature of those images, which is actually just an electric signals as well. In case we can just know the nature of the thoughts, we will be still in the middle of tornado images (thoughts).
Without any intention to remove the thoughts (images), the perfect meditators is extremely still, because they know the thoughts (images) are just not real.
