In this weeks collection of topics I am focusing on thought and fabrication. Most people who are practicing Meditation are very aware of their thoughts. They know well that the creative force of them is at the base of their feelings and actions. Thoughts influence the way we perceive this world and ourselves. Knowing this intellectually is still not enough though. If you really want to dive deeper into the practice of Meditation, it is very important to learn the art of letting go. Learning how to let go is a very intricate process. It requires time, patience, practice and qualified guidance. I hope that this little summary will help you a little with this process.

EPISODE 04: Thoughts are Empty
How is it that we can sometimes feel “attacked” or “overwhelmed” by our thoughts? It’s because we see them as something real, something substantial, reliable and trustworthy. In this talk I am exploring the emptiness of thought as an antidote to overthinking.
EPISODE 51: Where Thoughts are Coming from
Have you ever wondered, where the birthplace of thoughts is? Where do they arise and where do they go when they fade? In this talk I am exploring the nature of thoughts and how to observe them clearly in terms of substance and direction.
Blog: Fabricating Worlds – The Power of Thought
Thoughts are incredibly powerful. They are at the root of all human happiness and misery in this world. Most people are completely unaware of their thoughts. Perceiving themselves as the thinker they are lost within fabricating endless scenarios in their heads all day and night. Some people are aware of their brain-movies but have a hard time detaching from them. In this article I am discussing thoughts and how to deal with overthinking.
