For many years working with people trying to get rid of their addictions, we have seen that meditation is the most powerful method to change negative patterns. Indeed, we have never seen anyone fall which took the consistent practice of meditation. According to Buddhism, we create the world through our thoughts. When the mind is quiet and concentrated, the experience of ourselves and the world around us reflects the internal state of focused awareness.
Addictive behaviors are attempts to neutralize unpleasant thoughts and feelings that accompany them. Meditation is the most important natural technique known to calm the mind and gain access to the Silence contained therein. Although we all have the natural attitude to experience inner peace, most need help to awaken this ability. As a vehicle to expand consciousness, meditation is the best habit that can encourage, because it eventually takes the place of all other addictions.
According to the Upanishads kata, “The highest state, say the wise, is one in which the five senses are stilled, the mind quiets and intellect is stilled.” The meditative journey into ourselves leads us to discover the transcendental state of being from which our individuality arises. By bringing silence to life, body and mind are enriched and we shortcut the soul, which is the Eternal Silence of our desires, talents and creativity source.
Meditation helps us focus on the best possible way, while extending our sense of self. When we experience from an expanded perspective, catalyze our own healing. Through the power of Silence, we can find different solutions to problems provided free from the limiting patterns and programs of life
