"Until we have completely emptied out the false self with its emotional programs for happiness along with their tormenting desires, passing thoughts will continue to cause aversions or attractions because there is still something to be stimulated in the unconscious. When there is no longer anything to stimulate, inner freedom is complete and peace is habitual."
Thomas Keating
