I have an issue with being unable to stop thinking and since I have these crazy complex neural connects between my left and right hemispheres...my
Creative and Analytical sides are always at war...LOL!
1. You put energy to your thoughts when you are conscious of them. Most people are stuck in a world of thought because they have never learned to see
thoughts as phenomenon. They think they are their thoughts / ego.
2. The connection between your hemispheres is not relevant to the ability to be the witness of your thoughts.
I'm speaking of choice-less awareness in the Eastern tradition. For example mediation where you watch your thoughts flicker past not grasping at any
of them while you leave your mind alone.
.. just be okay with everything going on, always.
The worse thing though is my complete and total inability to forget about certain things I want to forget
That sounds bad. This is a fight you can only lose. Practice the mantra "... and this too shall pass".
I get the impression that you are talking about chunks of study material.
I'm out of school. Nobody is going to test my knowledge. I pay as much attention as I need to. I enjoy this topic, especially expansive theories
The aether is like the fungi that span whole continents.
I'm not too fussed about imaginings. It's more important to know what underlies the feelings that evoke the thoughts. You'd be surprised how much
reality changes when you change your perspective.
