One should remain detached from the process of thinking. They will come, they will surround you from everywhere. They will be like clouds; even the little bit of sky will be lost.
And when there are too many thoughts, the natural instinct is to fight with them, because you have read that meditation means thoughtlessness.
But by fighting one never becomes thoughtless. If you fight you will be defeated. The very fight becomes the cause for your defeat.
You cannot fight with shadows, otherwise you will be defeated. Try fighting with your own shadow and you will be defeated — not that the shadow is very powerful, but because the shadow is not. And fighting with something which is not, how can you win?
Thoughts are shadows, don’t fight with them!
