The whole fun of wisdom

That is the whole fun of wisdom, of spirituality—certain thoughts just don’t come to you.

It is not that new thoughts of a special variety start coming to you; not at all.

It is not that a spiritual man thinks differently;
it is just that he does not think most of the stuff that you keep thinking.

It is not that there is some special characteristic about his mind;
it is just that his mind does not carry most of the diseases that your mind carries.

Spirituality simply means that most of the thoughts that are so automatic right now with you, will stop occurring.

And it is such a relief, such a mercy.
