Is there such a thing as distraction? Surely the so-called distraction is obviously the thing in which the mind is interested; otherwise, you would not go after it. So, why condemn a thing by calling it a distraction? Whereas, if the mind is capable of not calling it distraction, but is pursuing each thought, being alert and aware of every thought that arises -not as a practice, but being aware of every thought that it is thinking-then there is no distraction, then there is no resistance. – Krishnamurti, Amsterdam 1955,Talk 2
