The Illusion of "me"
Apart from the futility of effort itself, any attempt to prevent thoughts from arising divides the mental artificially into that which does the prevention against that which is being prevented, creating only neurosis and conflict. Whatever thoughts arise (being without substance) will promptly vanish by themselves if they are not accepted and pursued as effective reality. To try to erase thoughts consciously and deliberately is like trying to wash away blood with blood.
All action is spontaneous, and all volition is an illusion. Once this is realized, one ceases to try to be spontaneous. Seeing the falseness of volition makes all action automatically spontaneous.
