Addiction to Thinking.
Message from Ascended Master Buddha.
When I was alive, I lived, as a youth, in a royal court. I was taught by the best and brightest within the kingdom. These men (alas, in my time only men were allowed to teach) sat and lectured for hours. They were enraptured by their own words and delighted in thinking and comparing one scenario to the next.
In short, they were addicted to thinking and promptly made me an addict as well. During class time, I was rewarded for my clever analyses and punished if I drifted into the Heart. I quickly learned to stay in my head.
Does this not sound familiar? More than 24 centuries later and we can still see the same phenomena and what has it wrought? Many are depressed. Many are in despair. Many are suffering.
I give you practical advice today. Stop thinking. Addictive thought behavior leads to stress and physical disease.
The way to stop thinking is to focus on the breath and the sensations of hearing, sight, and feeling.
The key is to focus on two or more sensations while controlling the breath as you go about your hectic day.
How to control breath? There are many ways and I provide you with one of my favorite ways: Breath in as you normal do but sniff in an extra small breath at the end to slightly increase the air that you bring into your lungs and then pause for a few beats. How many beats is entirely up to you. You can pause 1 beat or 7 or 10. for example, when sitting, you may hold the breath for 7 beats because it feels right. When walking, 1 beat may feel right.
After holding the breath for a few beats, exhale by simply releasing the breath and relaxing. Before inhaling again, hold your lungs empty for one or more beats. Then, breath in as before.
Continue this throughout the day.
At the same time as breathing, focus on 2 more sensations. Focus on the pressure of your feet in your shoes and the noise around you. Continue to focus on these two sensations as your breath in a controlled manner.
Not that when you breath and sense in this manner something of a miracle occurs. The incessant chattering of the thought addicted mind starts to slow down and, for most, eventually stops.
When this occurs, peace will envelope you and your body will begin to heal over time.
