No, we cannot stop thinking. Yes, we can stop identifying ourselves with our thoughts. The process of dis-identification begins when we check ourselves for gullibility, when we stop believing every thought we think.

Anger is a stop sign. When we are angry, we are essentially useless. Take 24 hours. Then come back to what offended you. You’ll know what to do. You’ll know what to say.
Have as your goal five breaths per minute. Realize your goal right now.
No one has ever stopped in the future.
It’s better to stop than to be stopped.
