We often feel that analytical meditation is too hard because we have to expend a lot of intellectual energy checking this, checking that, and conclude it would be better just to stop thinking altogether, to completely empty our mind. Thatís just ego. How can you stop thinking? Thought runs continuously, like an automatic watch. Whether youíre asleep or under the influence of drugs, thought is always there. Your stomach can be empty but not your mind.

--Lama Yeshe
