Nature of thoughts

I keep exploring the nature of thoughts, seeing thoughts as thoughts, their insubstantial and fleeting nature, how they mimic the five sensory fields (sight, sound, smell, taste, sensations), and how – when attention goes into their content and, crucially, take them as real – a whole world is created. A world that, since it is taken as real, appears as real, and create consequences in our experiences as if it was real.

As usual, thoughts can be explored from their emptiness and form sides.

I can see thoughts as thoughts, in their insubstantial and fleeting nature and mimicking sensory fields. And I can investigate the content of these thoughts, revealing that they have only a relative and limited truth. In both cases, we see them more as they are, and the tendency to take them as real weakens.
