My mind is always thinking.
I am having thousands of thoughts and over some time I have realised that most of them are useless.
What’s a useless thought? Anything out of your control and without a useful purpose. Do you ever think about the past? That’s the perfect example of a random thought that lacks a purpose unless you’re reflecting on a past decision or a mistake you made. In the case of reflection, you’re doing something useful. But other than that, thoughts about the past serve no purpose. From this point of view, they’re useless. Ever fantasized about the future? That’s also useless
