The limits of mental introspection

So introspection, also, if it brings about depression and demeaning of your personality, best is not to introspect also. Because all these mental activities, I have seen, create problems. But in a state where you are thoughtlessly aware, introspection comes to you automatically. You see it automatically. You understand it automatically. You do not think about it, it just comes to you. The whole picture comes to you and you are at peace with yourself. You are never in turmoil, never in trouble. Then you don’t get angry. Then you do not argue, then you do not discuss, but you become as if dropped in to the ocean of awareness and you don’t have to worry as to solve something. When you are reflecting, then you find that this power works.
