Thinker’s Block

You may have heard about Writer’s Block and the suspected connection to Burn-Out. The theory goes that the burn-out causes a block in creative output which leads to writer’s block.

What if the block is at a more fundamental level and affects all thought processes? In this case the problem may be more accurately described as Thinker’s Block.

This is a more radical concept because it implies a halt in the very mechanism that is assumed to be continuous by many people.

Buddhism teaches that the mind is a tool to be used when needed, not all the time. This is compatible with Thinker’s Block.

The author has experienced this from a young age. Other children would have a seemingly never-ending supply of things to say whereas the author would remain silent. This phenomenon continues to this day.

Perhaps Burn-Out should be more accurately described as Peace Of Mind.
