This was deeply embedded in my parents’ belief system, and passed along to me. It was an unquestioned assumption.
But how could this be? The so-called mind (which is a concept; I have never found a thing called “the mind,” have you?) is itself an apparent object. It is a thought; it cannot generate thought.
Thoughts bubble up in consciousness, like every other apparent thing that manifests. They arise in in it, and are made of it.
