Thinking too much results from viewing your mind within the ego mindset. That is one thing humanity is terrible at is believing that the mind is much powerful than the heart. When we think too much our brain goes into analytical mode, it moves away from the present and into the illusion of time, psychological time. It distinctively makes us aware that we need to be better, we aren’t good enough, we’re not pretty enough, we place ourselves above others, we only think of ourselves, the objective gets lost within the substance. This means your mind goes on a vacation for awhile, it travels around your thoughts, first you’re sitting in class listening to a lecture then next you’re questioning yourself, you’re moving yourself through time. Your mind can only be a prison for you if you let it be. When you are born you are a soul and what happens is through the imbalance of time on this planet you develop learned tendencies associated with ego(psychological time) past & future. I stress this sooo much because when you think in ego you bury yourself within a hole, you put yourself in a loop and as our aura is a blackhole matrix your mind is ALSO a blackhole torus matrix. So what happens when you think outside of time? Your mind projects ego, it creates imbalance within yourself, FEAR, DOUBT, WORRY, this stops the prana from flowing. Doubt doesn’t exist. Fear doesn’t exist. Worry doesn’t exist. you create doubt yourself, you create fear yourself, you create worry yourself, you see?
Ego is created from the concept and illusion that we are all separation when we are actually deeply connected to one another, from the microcosm to the macrocosm. Everything is a reflection of the other.
If you truly are having trouble with this concept, i strongly, STRONGLY suggest to check out Eckhart Tolle. google, youtube, lectures, his books, anything, there’s something out there for everyone. I know i say this a lot but his philosophy over the ego is right on point with everything we are experiencing. I’ll have to start posting more of his work because it’s pretty genius.
“letting go of psychological time” is the perfect article for you. It’s in my tagged section:
Transcending the egoic mind and tuning in to cosmic consciousness:
i’ll try to post some more of his stuff soon to further this example.
Hope this helps
p.s. i also have a bunch of ego posts/questions here
