Thoughts can be value neutral, they come and go all day long. They don't have to be a problem, but what makes those same thoughts problematic, what makes them catch to where you focus on them is the feeling that they are "MY" thoughts, then they create a "sense of self".  This sense of self is what makes awareness/consciousness identify with the body/mind.

Add to the mix the use of psychological time that the thought system uses to project the image of the body into the future by imagination or through memory to focus on the past and it keeps that sense of self very much alive. 

Most ppl I think would say that thought, specifically "MY" thoughts over-ride the normal human senses. If one can calm and quiet the mind by practices, then it's easier to feel our way through life. Relaxing that sense of self "feeling", allows expansion, instead of contraction, in our awareness of life. 

Just some Sunday morning musings 😊
