Sometimes the mind is a place of great turmoil & havoc.
When it seems you cannot control your own thoughts & every thought seems to have a mind of its own, to say.
There seems to be a way of controlling the turmoil, that works for meat least.
Remove the self from your thoughts & look at the thoughts from a third-person-perspective, so that suddenly it is as if you are in another person's mind. It acts like a feedback loop. The more distant you become from your thoughts, from your self, the calmer it gets. & then only the important thoughts remain. But removing yourself from the frame is important.
