Dutch Uncle Addiction Recovery
by Dutch Uncle
Meditation is Addiction Recovery's Bedrock.
My Dutch Uncle says Meditation Is Oneness With All Life.
My Dutch uncle is Eckhart Tolle.
Author of "Oneness with all life".
He addresses Addictive Thinking with, "Discover inner space by creating gaps in the stream of your thinking." Your thinking doesn't have to run all the time.
Give it a rest.
How? Be aware of your breathing. Notice how this takes away from your thinking. Meditation starts and ends with the breath.
In Zen they say: "Don't seek the truth. Just cease to cherish opinions."
What does that mean? Let go of identification with your mind. Who you are beyond the mind emerges by itself.
You can not fight against the ego and win, just as you cannot fight against darkness. The light of consciousness is all that is necessary. You are that light. Be a lamp unto yourself.
When you make the present moment, instead of past and future, the focal point of your life, your ability to enjoy what you do...and with it the quality of your life...increases dramatically.
Be Here Now. Actually that is all there is
