One way to not think is below thinking…

… the knee-jerk reactions of that coiled reptile, salivating dog, and pecking pigeon inside of me–all primed to fight, flee, or freeze without deliberation.

Another way to not think is above thinking…

… the bare-naked ability to experience and respond to things as they truly are–beyond the stranglehold of reflex, instinct, ignorance, preconception, self-deception, self-righteousness, and conditioned response.

Ascending to this rarified vantage point is no small feat and is not for the faint of heart. Getting there requires something extraordinary, yet utterly simple: the uncommon honesty, humility, and courage to see, hear, and admit what is right before your eyes and ears.
