your life was great and you had no worries, what would you be
thinking about? What kind of thoughts would you have? What plans
would you make? What kind of things would you be doing? What
ideas would you come up with? What kind of things would you
dream about? If you give yourself that freedom several times a
day to think what ever you want, how would those thoughts
compare to the other thoughts that you would normally have
during the day? Then ask yourself why those thoughts are so
different from each other? Which thought would be the most
correct thought to have at that given moment in time? What are
you really being aware of? Are these thoughts or is this
thinking making any progress? Or are these thoughts just
repeating themselves without you learning anything from them?

understand what the passage is saying, but once you understand
it you move on to the next page or the next passage. If you
don't make progress with your thoughts then it's like never
turning the page. If you can't understand something then
bookmark that page and come back to it later when you think you
figured it out. Sometimes you will find the answers some where
else in the book or even from a totally different book. Learning
how to read your own mind is the most important aspect of
knowing how to read.
