Personal demons
    #4677960 - 09/18/05 05:00 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

We all encounter mindless desires. It has a negative impact in our life.
I mean demons in the figurative speech. Basically our demons take over and make us think meaningless things. I have this problem and I start cycling about negative thoughts. A snow ball effect is what is happening.

One good stradegy is restraint. Another good stradegy is drugs. You have any thoughts when encountering these demons?

Try meditation. Calm observance of thoughts and other mental processes, without judgment of any kind should be enough for them to eventually loose their grip and fade out. You may want to do a search in the S&P for more great advice on the process of meditation itself.

The other more adventurous route may be you alone in the dark, with some psychedelic material of your choice  :mushroom2:, heading straight to the depths of your personal hell and resolving what ever needs to be resolved.

Yes I notice drugs are a total psychotherapy. They make you face these demons. More then you would sober.

only in the west might we consider that medication is a solution,
it is an intercession (temporary) only
we must find our way through the desert
without intercessions
and still enjoy its benefit when
it makes sense overall - sometimes
on a daily basis, as each of us is different.
