After being transformed from Asia into the Western world about 40 years ago, the ideal of meditation has roots and flourished with incredible speed. During this brief period, it has evolved from embroidery of very little uncertainty in the cultural community to its present state as a very hot topic of medicine, psychology, education, and many other common places.
Interestingly, this phenomenon is very much in line with the predictions made by Arnold Toynbee's outstanding historian. He wrote that "of all the historical changes in the West, the most important – and the one at least – is encountering Buddhism in the west."
Bertrand Russell said: "If we have to feel at home in the world, we must recognize Asian equality in our thoughts, not only politically but culturally. But I am convinced that they will be profound and the greatest importance." 19659003] Like someone who has been practicing thought-thinking for 35 years, I look at this prediction to have been very prime and very accurate.
Three main advantages of thinking thinking
Very diverse major mental, emotional and behavioral problems, which are generally the result of serious thought exercises, are somewhat similar to what seems to be endless useful pathways.
Here is a brief summary of its three most important benefits:
1. Increased overall satisfaction and satisfaction with pleasurable lifestyles . When someone learns how to be perfectly present and focused on engaging in such activities (eg eating favorite foods, love, children, etc.), it is likely that he will experience a much higher level of satisfaction and performance than anyone that are distributed, misguided and / or engaged in various kinds of ordinary reflections.
Similarly, even activities that most people see as being pretty boring or monotonous can become very fascinating when engaging in a great emphasis and speculative presence.
By developing sufficient mindfulness, experience will be needed. Like the famous Gestalt Therapist, Fritz Perls, was fond of saying, "If you're bored, it means you're not paying attention."
2. Significantly increased ability to cope with actual physical pain. At least sometimes in our lives, almost all of us are dependent on pain, either acute or protracted. For millions of chronic pain victims, in fact, this scrap form of unrelenting pain will be inherently and always present a challenge. Historically, in this culture, most people in this problem rely primarily on painkillers in trying to get relief.
Dr. Jón Kabat-Zinn has demonstrated that, through his developmental training program, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), it has been shown that through depressed developmental training, people suffering from chronic pain can increase their ability to deal effectively with it . With this skill training, they also tend to improve their overall quality of life at the same time.
With specialized training in increasing their strength, some people with great physical pain learned how to experience it as a picture of constantly changing and moving energy, making it much easier to deal with. As incredible as it may seem, some of them are aware of the feeling of having power, or even nurturing, of such pain. A sufficient amount of skill development in thought can then transform the experience of intolerable pain in a subjective way into personal growth and strengthening.
3. Likelihood of increased ability to cope with an exercise solution. Through continued development of thought as a triangular spiritual skill (intensity, sensory and equilibrium), experts learn how to monitor and deconstruct various kinds of emotional pain (eg, fear, grief, jealousy, guilt, anger, resentment, shame, etc.). .) in their affiliates, ie. spiritual images, words in words and sensations of the body.
By combining these things in the context of true affirmation (balance), even great and painful emotions emerge as impersonal and very temporary internal states. Just as it is true in learning how to deal with effective physical pain, this is very empowering. Mindfulness, then, offers a powerful general way of reducing or even eliminating both physical and emotional suffering. This fact is often summarized in short morals: "Pain is inevitable, but suffering is voluntary."
