I've always had the tendency to over analyze things. These days I try to do stuff with out double thinking, and sometimes without thinking at all. I sometimes try to let go of my mind and just do it. I find it helps me to get things done way faster and it helps me to not worry at all sometimes. I hear that the more you do something the better you get at it just like with anything else. I sometimes make a decision that I'm not going to think. I let go and blanken out my mind constantly. I let go and then I let go more and more, I don't think about it I just do it. And eventually I forget where I am or what I am doing. This is when I then start taking action. My mind sometimes gets clear in as little as five minutes.

There are times when Thinking is good like if you want to solve a problem or if you want your insights to expand. After all what you think about grows and expands including spiritual insights and more.

I find focusing on something constantly for an extended period of time also gives me more clarity.

When I clear I just clear. When I set an intention or prayer I don't think about it I just do it. Anything that comes to mind I do it.

I only think about what I'm doing if I'm feeling any kind if negativity. In this case I ask myself what the highest way to respond to the situation would be.

Thinking is good in some situations.

However I feel like I've overcome a lot of doubt and feel empowered not thinking at all sometimes.

I would appreciate what others have to say.

You are right, thinking is good and it can also be bad, (You might break something?). Thinking for myself is good, but at the moment not very helpful. There are some problems in my life that I need to sort out and my thinking doesn't help. This is because I can never seem to come up with a solution to my problem. I know the problem and I know the solution. The solution to the problem is money. That's the problem at the moment. How do I find a way to manifest the money I need? Would thinking come up with a solution to that problem? Thinking hasn't got me anywhere and I spend a great deal of time thinking about it. Some of my friends tell me to switch off. Just leave things alone, but I find that difficult. When you want something as much as me how do you switch off?

Does thinking slow us down you ask? Yes and no. It might depend on what you are thinking about. Thinking has slowed me down, but only because the money I need is not available yet.

I think it was Oscar Wilde who said, "Sometimes I sit and I think and sometimes I just sit"

Take care Chris

thinking has its place and more
so as its resultant actions
affect others, who is served
by this less than conscious act

to analyze thing is good. it can help you clear some doubt and know where you are going and what you will do. at the end you say:However I feel like I've overcome a lot of doubt and feel empowered not thinking at all sometimes.

to answer this: feeling is not knowing. feeling comes from the heart knowledge comes from the mind. the fact that you do not say: I know that I've overcome a lot of doubt. could mean that you are still doubting. and what you say after:and feel empowered not thinking at all sometimes. tell me that you still need to go deeper and know your self. because you really do not believe that. feeling is from the heart, thinking is from the mind. those two should work as one. but often the heart go one way and the mind go another. in your statement you want to follow the heart feel empowerment and you negate the mind not thinking. and you add at all sometime. I would say to you what trouble your heart that you do not want to think about it. do you think it is good to trouble your heart with this? but for the moment you do not want to think it is your choice. you can think about it later when your heart is not trouble. you should know better and do not let your heart be trouble.

"There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so."~ William Shakespeare

"Well, then it isn't one to you, since nothing is really good or bad in itself--it's all what a person thinks about it. And to me, Denmark is a prison." ~ Hamlet

I'm a 'feeling' person and the 3 biggest mistakes I've made in my life time were due to over analyzing and not going with my gut instincts or inner wisdom.
