Why Medication to Meditation?
Let’s say that a person is suffering from depression and understand that how medication will help that person and how meditation will help that person.
Impact of Medication
Depression is a condition where the person lives in the past. Which means either the person suffering from any past memories or any trapped negative emotion. Now due to contemplating on those past memories or emotions there is a chemical disorder in the brain due to which the person suffers.
That person starts taking medicines. What medicines will do is that it will balance out the deficiency of that chemical and will help in disconnecting from that negative emotion or memories and the person will start having sound sleep.
Imagine that you move in chauffeur Driven vehicle for a long period of time and suddenly you were asked to drive by your own. Will you accept it? Well, the first answer will be NO and if there is no other option you will search for a simpler or most convenient option for you. Because you have programmed yourself in such a way that even when you know how to drive you still won’t because it will need some extra efforts now.
Our brain is also similar to this. It has all the capability to release the chemical or the neurotransmitter you can even imagine but once a person becomes a slave of medication it would be very hard for the brain to reproduce those chemicals again. Because that will require an extraordinary effort.
It’s all about how we program ourselves.
I’m not saying that medication should not be taken but a sincere effort should be done for getting off those medications.
Meditation will help you getting off those medications. No let’s discuss how?
Impact of meditation.
If medication is synonym for disconnection and meditation is synonym for connection. Connection to your inner self, connection to your higher self.
Meditation will help you in getting connected to the thoughts or emotions that are bothering you and taking learning from those thoughts or emotions and implementing those learnings in your life.
It will help you in bringing yourself into the present moment and understanding your true position or true self.
Meditation improves your focus, your concentration, helps in channelising your energies and even realise your purpose of life.
The choice is yours change or transformation.
Meditation simplified – Just for you
If life is a recipe then meditation is salt. It will add taste do this recipe called life. Imagine having food without salt, how it will taste? Similarly, if you add too much or very less amount of salt in your food, it will definitely reduce the taste of that recipe.
