If you sit back and look at your thoughts, say in one day, one hour or even one minute, you will be astonished to find that ninety-nine point nine and in some cases even a hundred percent of the thoughts are fit for the rubbish bin. They have no aim, no purpose and are often self-destructive, producing anxiety, irritation and disharmony as well as tiredness.

In contrast, try to picture a mind that has one single thought. One-pointed, ekagra. Or else, a mind that simply has no thought. Thoughtless, nirvikalpa. One can easily ascertain which of these states of mind is superior in terms of potential. A mind that is one-pointed can easily unravel the mysteries of what is has set its mind upon. And a thoughtless mind can unravel the mysteries of everything. Barriers simply do not exist in a thoughtless or nirvikalpa state of mind.

When a person totally concentrate and focus on a single deed without disturbed by anybody for a long period of time, it is possible to attain a stage where the body doesn't require any basic needs like water,food,sleep,etc.,but still will continue in the deed with utmost perfection subconsciously without his/her knowledge.One may argue that there also the mind works but I would say it is a sort of bliss to feel and reach such a stage in reading or writing or meditation.

Thoughtless only when we are unconscious. Even in sleep, mind is working full time. Mad people are also thoughtful but their thoughts are limited to their day to day requirement besides mind working on the reason why one was become mad.
