We don’t even know what concepts are, what thoughts are. We know what thoughts do, they drive us crazy. When something triggers a feeling and we rummage through concepts to explain why something happens, what it is and what it’s about, constant chatter that is going in circles, you leave the original situation an opt for something else. Let concepts arise in your mind-stream in or with the awareness. You don’t have to stop thinking, but if you want to see the entire situation, you are probably going to need spiritual path.
