Pain is a consequence of incorrect thought.
When I am thinking incorrectly, actually I'm not thinking at all.
My ego is thinking.
Except the ego's thinking is not thinking at all; it is white noise.
I am in the presence of my ego, which is producing white noise.
It is like a child angry because it has a red blanket when it wants a blue one.
How does one respond?

Imagine a radio on in the neighbouring flat.
It is broadcasting a play about horrors.
It is just a play.
Do not use the events occurring in the play to inform your perception of the reality of your life.
Let alone make decisions on the basis thereof.
