Why is Meditation so Hard? Because of the Monkey Inside us r/Meditation • u/pysk00l share

tldr: The monkey inside of us, is the biggest enemy we have to meditation and spiritual progress.

The Buddha said meditation, gaining master of the mind, is like taming a wild beast. I think this metaphor is very apt.

Let Go r/awakened • u/RealityHackerAcademy share

Right now you’re feeling the weight of some condition in your life. Well, most likely many, many conditions. It feels heavy, like a weight or pressure bearing down on you, squeezing the life out of you.

Thank you very much for this.

I've been struggling with a burnout for the past eight weeks.

I was in a position where i was heavily influenced by toxic people, taking over their habits and in that i lost myself.

I was lost in the whirlwind of emotions that aren't mine.
Feeling overwhelmed and like there was a big black hole of emptyness and darkness in the center of my chest.

Thankyou lovely human!

You guys saved my life r/Meditation • u/tripsteady share

Hi All

I have had struggles all my life with anxiety, depression, ruminating and extreme overthinking and then one day things took a turn for the worst.

You mention meditation being dangerous in a way.

Sometimes I question whether it was good for me to get into meditation at a relatively young age (17). It gave me realizations that detached me from the material world and took me out of the fantasy/narrative that most of us participate in which ended up causing me to feel very alienated at times.

But I was far from enlightened, and still suffered from petty desires and insecurities even with the realization of what the truth really is. So I always had this inner conflict/tension in me, which tore up my personality a lot.

Sometimes I wonder if my life would have been better if the curtain was never lifted and I fully participated in the fantasy without questioning it if that makes sense.
