slowing thought - as opposed to stopping it.

I found you all a quote:

>> I suggested that to slow down the mind in order to
examine the thought-feeling process, you should write down
every thought-feeling. If one wishes to understand, for
example, a machine of high revolution one has to slow it
down, not stop it for then it becomes merely a dead matter;
but make it turn gently, slowly, to study its structure,
its movement. Likewise if we wish to understand our mind,
we must slow down our thinking - not put a stop to it -
slow it down in order to study it, to follow it to its
fullest extent. And to do this I suggested that you write
down every thought-feeling. >>
