How to Neutralise the Self Perpetuating Wheels of Thought.
Being now, is much more than just not thinking. But not being able to think at the same time, is the first, most noticable and practical effect of broadbanding. This is relevant for human life, today more than ever, because of the need to be able to stop the continual repetitive chatter in our minds, we need to get a bit of simple and direct peace of mind.
Throughout evolution, broadbanding has been the unquestionble and natural way to switch off, stop doing everything, thinking anything, and be still for a moment. Animals can't be fully aware if they are thinking at the same time, they know they have to concentrate only on being broadband if they want to secure their survival. So, it's vital, to periodically check their surroundings, and be fully aware and receptive.
For animals, this is recurring experience of how it feels to be now and still, eliminate all distractions and all focussed activity; and be actively receptive to everything and anything.
Without trying it out, you might feel as though there is so much happening, that it would make you crazy to be aware of it all. And it would make us crazy if we had to focus and then think about it all; but to be aware of it all, you can't think at the same time.
In effect, for humans who are so out of practice, broadbanding has the effect of temporarily slowing down the thinking.
It depends how much you do it. There are many different degrees and qualities.
Without focussing on anything you can't start thinking about it, and consequently you can't want it or want to repeat it. Broadbanding disconnects the regenerating basis for thinking. It devolves the system.
In order to be now, aware and awake, and feel a sense of connection with what is actually happening, nothing surpasses broadband sensing.
The senses are seen as the door between us and the world outside of us. In a broadband reality our senses connect us with the world. The irrational feeling is : we are the door.
Doing things which are in keeping with nature
Broadbanding actually stimulates inner peace by trying to do it. This is important to understand. People who meditate often say that 'it comes by itself' so 'don't try so hard'. But broadbanding is something which wanting to do it, and trying to do it, and being attached to it, doesn't prevent it happening. It encourages it. It's reliable because it's the natural way.
If we want eternity, we probably have to focus on eternal things. But if want to be now, still our thoughts, with a basic feeling of connection with our world, we need to learn from animals, and how they use their broadband sensing.
