Is it possible to drop all the concepts and simply be? Do you find the prospect of just being in the moment without the false intellectual identity confronting or scary?
The next day I would lose my damn mind. I always complain about thinking too much, but If I don't think so much I'll lose myself in the darker reaches of my mind.
Ignorance is bliss! I would love a non-thinking day of just playing with puppies.
Of course it is, go spend a day at a park, on a picnic, snow skiing. boating, fishing, just going for a drive ... we spend far too much time being serious, we need to remember what it is like to laugh and be a child and not be so blinkin serious. Laugh for heaven's sake, do something ridiculous, or not do anything and be as lazy as you wish.
It is certainly possible, once the false identity is seen for what it is, return is impossible. If you stop talking to yourself in your head, all that stuff falls away of itself, then it becomes possible to, in a way, figure it all out. Not with thought, but with simply seeing what is. Thoughts are like boxes that we use to classify stuff, if you think of what would be the box you can put everything in, you might get the principle behind that. It can be very scary to go through the process if you are attached to your ideas of who you are, but when you realize that you are still there after what you previously defined as you has died, it is comforting enough that you, at least, lose any fear of death. You then go back to you life as it was, but without the clinging to illusions that prevented living more fully.
Pushing the "pause" button for a brief suspension of the voice can be liberating.
O yes, that is the way to live. That would be a celebration of life enriched with unburdened joy and relaxation. It is possible. If only we can remain in mind without thoughts, without the baggage of the memories of the past and dreams/anticipation for the future.
