Ask Amy: How do we make it through life ignoring thought?

Azra says she understands that it’s “all just thought” and we should ignore it as such, but then how do we make it through life?

But there’s a simple, misunderstanding in her query.

Seeing that we can only experience life through thought doesn’t mean we should ignore it. We couldn’t if we tried (and trying would only bring more attention to it!)
