    Yes, I see what he is saying. When I get the craving I do not need to
    engage the feeling or thought, just let it be, it will pass. Fighting the
    urge makes it stronger, giving in makes it stronger. Just let it be. I am
    not my thoughts, they are separate from my being. Thank you.

    With how many monks do you live? Do you run, do aerobics or lift weights or
    just eat, talk and meditate? Do you think you are as content as a person
    can be ?

    This is a beautiful video, it addresses the Truth in such an informative,
    yet simple manner.

    “It just is” is explained so well that it makes what seems to be a such a
    complex matter, so simple to break down that one begins to wonder why it
    ever appeared to be such a difficult task.

    Well done!!
    You have helped so many people in such a beautiful way.
    Thank you, I will be sure to pass your message on to others.

    Great teaching. I like how he teaches that we should detach ourselves from
    Addiction is like honey on a razor blade, sweet and first, but eventually
    it hurts.
    Thank you for the advice!

    My question is where do you go when you meditate? and what do you see ? is
    it like dreaming? I always look at every animal sleeping and I wonder where
    they go! yI guess my Question is, is there something you interact with
    while meditating?

    Addiction is the result of a body that ‘feels’ no pleasure. The body wants
    pleasure and the egoistic mind wants power. Check out Alexander Lowen’s
    book, “Pleasure”. The addiction give the body something that it isn’t
    getting. It’s obsessive and complusive nature isn’t satified with logical
    conversaations with the mind. Meditation can show yourself the workings and
    needs. But, nobody ever talked an addiction away. Often you can substitute
    one addiction for another. But that’s not a cure!

    I have struggled with withdrawal from anti-anxiety drugs and kundalini
    syndrome for several years now and meditation has been enormously helpful
    in controlling the often horrible reactions of my body during the
    withdrawal, including shaking, sweating, panic attacks, upset stomach, and
    intense craving for the drug. In fact, my meditation became much stronger
    and sharper as a result of being forced to confront the physical symptoms.

    im confused with one thought lately: What if a person drinks a lot of
    alcohol but doesnt see a problem in it. So there is no problem but the
    acceptance of drinking and its consequences, then this is the right way? it
    seems wrong and right at the same -could someone help me out please? Im not
    drinking or taking any drugs anymore but i still cant get the logic…

    To be honest, I thought it was a bunch of mumbo jumbo BS. I believe in the
    strength of meditation but I think the Monk doesn’t know what he is talking
    about and needs to know whoever asked that question really wants help.
