  1. It depends on your metaphor on “switched on and off” right? Could you elaborate? For example do you mean switch on (off) = coming into (going out of) existence, or switch on (off) = having (not having) stray thoughts, or switch on (off) = become (not become) motivated?

  2. *grin* … you are right, it depends … 😉

    In this metaphor, I was referring mostly to them being motivated or not. 🙂

    But yes, their momentary arising and falling is like the light bulb, likewise for the stray thoughts. Some would say they are more like fluorescent tubes, flickering on and off! 🙂

    With metta and Happy Vesak!
