We can only ever choose how to interpret a situation, then choose how to react to our own interpretation. We only ever react to our own choices, so the only thing we can hate are the choices we make.

#Meditation for Substance Abuse. https://appliedawareness.org/meditation-for-substance-abuse/

Guest appearance on The Community Playlist from the Flint Odyssey House. The Odyssey House offers substance abuse treatment programs, and the focus of the broadcast was about how meditation can aid with treatment.

Original Question: Are there drawbacks to Zen and the school of "just sitting"? Does it lack the necessary causes for insight and wisdom to grow, or can these be realized by different means?

My Reply: Zen meditation is basically to stop the process of perception, which uses the predispositions, emotions, and thinking mind to decipher what we're experiencing.  You can either try to let-go of all thought and concepts, or focus on cutting off the mental function of perception itself. - No matter how you do it, letting-go of perception lets you naturally experience awakening.

Are traditional meditation techniques outdated? #meditation #buddhism #zen
