Infinite loop of thoughtsIn software programming, there is a term called infinite loop which means that computer program gets stuck into a loop and keeps on running doing the same thing without terminating. We need to give some commands to break this loop.
Similarly, I find that sometimes when we tend to keep thinking on and on continuously our mind also gets into this infinite loop mode where different thoughts keep on coming without a break and you really cannot come out of it and focus on required things. Sometimes this happens during sleep time and you are not able to sleep for long hours till this loop is broken.
In software we have means to break the infinite loop but how can we handle this when our mind gets stuck in the infinite loop of endless thoughts. How do we break this loop? Well, meditation can be one technique.
Have you ever experienced this infinite loop of thoughts and how do you handle it?
