' Thoughts will vanish '...

Apart from the futility of effort itself, any attempt
to prevent thoughts from arising divides the mind
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.
