The Mind Is The Problem, And The Mind Is The Solution

Theresa is sitting in circle with us today, and she’s asked a very important question: is it possible for a person in recovery to truly reach a place of peace and contentment?

This incredibly powerful question, it seems to me, is really about the entire human race. Is it possible for any person, whether in recovery or not, to truly find peace and contentment?

And yet, when we look at this inquiry through the lens of addiction and recovery, we learn so much about ourselves. Our minds are responsible for some of the problems that we encounter, but our minds also create the solutions. Thoughts lead to impressions, impressions lead to habits, and our habits determine how we act in this world. It’s only by taking action to change these habits that we can move forward into a greater state of awareness and presence.

Karma is a wheel of thought impression, which leads to action, which leads to more thought.

– Tommy Rosen, In The Circle Podcast

Tommy discusses:

    • Misconceptions of Karma
    • Why anxiety is a habitual response to your environment 
    • Why you may feel that you’re at the mercy of everything around you (a “victim of circumstance”)
    • Solutions for anxiety through forming new, healthier habits
    • How you can shift your focus from the symptom of a problem towards its solution
    • Why you should start enjoying “the thing” instead of “the outcome”
    • Shame, and how it keeps you stuck
