Breaking Bad Habits: Freedom from Attachment & Addiction
A Meditation Daycourse
Imagine a life completely and permanently free of all obsessions and addictions.
All bad habits originate in the mind, not the brain. The mind is formless and non-physical, whose function is simply to understand or know things. So if we want to uproot the origin of our problems completely, we need to change our mind. We need mental medicine to solve mental problems. Unhappiness, obsession and suffering are all feelings, and they are all a part of our mind.
Our mind sees things in a distorted way, through the lens of delusions such as desirous attachment. It projects all kinds of pleasurable qualities onto objects it believes to be true, but that don’t actually exist. Chasing after mirages, we invariably feel dissatisfied. But we continue to look for satisfaction where it can never be found. We try and try, gripped by the belief we can find it. But we just increase our craving. The result? More frustration, anger and unfulfilled wishes, binding our mind even deeper to its object. And we form a kind of addiction around this obsession. A sense of being bound to this compulsive identity.
Our mind can fixate on anything, and we become consumed in the process. These objects of addiction might be anything...a person, a substance, our cellphone, or praise. Maybe it's just staying busy so we don’t have to deal with our compulsions.
Now the good news...
Join us for a day of learning how to break the chain of bad habits gradually and steadily, reducing its hold on our mind through clear wisdom and mental freedom that shatter the spell that this desirous attachment casts over us. At the same time, we learn how to stop feeling stuck in a negative view of ourselves. Instead, we learn how to identify with a transformation which naturally unfolds into our path to permanent freedom. Better yet, we even learn how to release others from the bondage of their mental prisons.
