By The Grace of Sri Mooji Ji & Sri Ananta Ji,
Thoughts don't hold on to you.
You hold on to thoughts!
You actually don't hold on to thoughts.
You are actually the space in which all thoughts and the appearance of the one to hold onto them arise.
Only a false (identified) idea is affected by thoughts. Thoughts only affect those of their nature. Thoughts affect thoughts.
The thinker and the thought simultaneously arise. The thinker is simply a thinker-thought.
When you sense that "you" are affected by something, stop right there and inquire:
"For whom are these thoughts arising?"
