The mind is a great and useful instrument, but it should not be allowed to rule our lives. If you follow every thought that enters your mind your attention would be close to zero. It would be a great advantage if were able to silence it when you want to.
Thoughts constantly come and go, but with a little training, you will be able to choose to ignore them when you want to. When you are without thoughts, you enjoy inner peace and inner happiness, but at the same time you can also go on living your life, and doing everything in a better, focused and efficient way.
By reducing the amount of thoughts in your mind, you attain mastery over your mind, and become able to focus it on whatever you want. You will be able to use it in better and more useful ways.
