Become your own Therapist


Examine your own mental attitudes, Become your own Therapist

Lama Thubten Yeshe

One of eye openings book that came across was “Become your own Therapist” by Lama Yeshe. This quote is from the book and is to help understand about we can use meditation as a way to examine, reflect and work on ourselves.

The human mind instinctively seeks happiness. East, West— there’s no difference; everybody’s doing the same thing.

Knowing your own mind is the solution to all your problems.

Another eye opening idea was about being grateful to our probems as they come in our lives to help us get better.

Meditation does not imply only the development of single-pointed concentration, sitting in some corner doing nothing. Meditation is an alert state of mind, the opposite of sluggishness; meditation is wisdom. You should remain aware every moment of your daily life, fully conscious of what you are doing and why and how you are doing it.

We do almost everything unconsciously. We eat unconsciously; we drink unconsciously; we talk unconsciously. Although we claim to be conscious, we are completely unaware of the afflictions rampag­ing through our minds, influencing everything we do.

A practice like Mindfulness can help us be in the present and work on what matters now.  Learn more about how to get started with meditation.
