Addicted to Peace

Through a lot of spiritual seeking, I discovered that there is a simple form of happiness that is available to me in the background. That’s why when I am stressed out, I naturally want to come back to that state of happiness. But sometimes I do it by addicting to objects, to pleasures, to shopping, to eating. Every time I get what I want, I feel better for a moment, not because I got what I wanted, but because I am taking a break from looking for my desire. I came across a technique that works for me to help me come back to my original happiness and that I’d like to share with others that are suffering. It is called The Work of Byron Katie. I love this process because it is so quick and so simple, and the only thing that it keeps me addicted to, is myself.

 

People try so hard to let go of their negative behaviors and thoughts, and it doesn't work, or it works only for a short time. I didn't let go of my negative thoughts; I questioned them, and then they let go of me, and so did my addictions and depression. - Byron Katie
