Sobriety

Sobriety was something I had previously thought to be unattainable; the anxiety of life too much to bear without substance, without alcohol. I needed it for almost anything and usually there was no stopping me from obtaining it; and always wanting more. A vicious cycle of dependence which could not be broken. Thank god I was wrong.

I am currently 8 months sober and the benefits have reached and blessed every aspect of life. I have less anxiety, less illnesses, less arguments, less confusion, less injury, less financial burdens and I could go on forever. Most importantly I have accepted buddha and my sobriety go hand in hand on this path that I have chosen.

There are so many ways to conquer demons of which used to control my life. Im finding myself in meditation everywhere I go and every day that I stay. It is very important for my day to day balance to practice the teachings of various meditations and perhaps my writings can lead others to finding a healthier balance in life regardless of religious belief or path.

Thats all for now.

Change Your Emotions; GreatMiddleWay

To manifest any given emotional state, we develop a pattern:

We focus our attention on a specific feeling (pleasant or unpleasant) and magnify it

We generate a supporting discursive thought process and identify with it

We assume a compatible breath pattern and physical posture

If you want to change your emotional state, change your focus, your self-talk, your breath, and your posture.

What you do not.

Instead of what you need; what about what you do not?

In a world of depressive materialism; poverty and pollution

I dont intent to tread on trend; pretenders I severed an end

Theres a fine line drawn in the sand; trampled

Without mindful intent; a spiritual glance

What is the zen and the trance; compassion enhanced

And when does my third eye open; to notice what controls my emotions

Carefully ponder; what I do and what I do not need

Eat, sleep and breathe

Clothing and shelter and ease

Calming peace and honourable deeds

No harm. No foul.

What I do. And what I do not need.

Known as trataka in Hinduism, this method of meditation involves starting at a single point. This point can be anything, such as your favorite painting, a tree in the distance or the moon at night.

Like most other styles of meditation, gazing meditation will help you calm the restless mind. If you have stress or anxiety, take a few minutes to practice gazing meditation.

This style of meditation is especially soothing when you’re in the wilderness and gaze at something beautiful, such as a river, a beautiful tree or the sunset…
