We pity those who are drug or alcohol addicts and wish they change and become normal. But if you sit quietly for a few minutes, close your eyes to calm down and try to meditate, you see how your body craves for those same emotions of Covid fears, relationships agitation, work-boss related anger, frustration about many things that are unacceptable to you. Are you not addicted to your negative energies? Good news! If you consciously stop such thoughts and return to your breath again and again, day after day, your brain learns the Skill to slow down. Happiness is a skill, you need to learn it! It is not for free. Buy one
(meditation) get one free (happiness)!
