Thought is a screen not a mirror
"Why are you so wary of thought?" said the philosopher. "Thought is the one tool we have for organizing the world."
"True. But thought can organize the world so well that you are no longer able to see it."
To his disciples, he later said, "A thought is a screen, not a mirror; that is why you live in a thought envelope, untouched by reality."
-- Anthony De Mello
