    We are breathing whether we recognize it or not;- the same with thinking.

    Are You Mindful of Both Thinking and Thoughts, or neither at times ?

    Are you thinking? This question is superfluous, but it does have an effect. It causes you to shift perspective to understanding that thinking is going on and possibly witnessing some of those thoughts. "Where" was your perspective 'before' that question? Contrast the two perspectives...
