You don’t address emotions here, you say we are just choosing to keep our attention on mind and thoughts. You can choose to not attend to thoughts perhaps, but can you choose to not attend to emotions and stay psychologically healthy?
This is something I’ve been at for decades, IME clearing the mental and emotional channels does allow the wisdom mind stream to emerge.
