An extraordinarily large percentage of the world’s population have a tendency to be seduced by pathological thinking – habitually entertaining thoughts that produce worry, stress, woes, anger, and hostility in one form or another. Prolonged pathological thinking increases it’s intensity, the mind weakens and the body tires. Mind, body and soul have become fragmented. Physical ailments may begin to appear.
Mental anguish in the form of anxiety and depression have long been a part of this person’s life. Being elevated from a state of panic to comprehensive peace and calm can be a painstaking endeavor. One who has begun to master the unraveling of the mind’s mummery is no longer seduced by unsolicited thoughts but rather amused by the provocative nature of them. Chatter is the antithesis of peace, untroubledness is calming, this is the evolution of spiritual principles. Whether it be a disease of addiction, a phobia, neurosis or psychosis, the solution will at least partially depend on restructuring thought processes.
Our primary focus is to encourage those who wish to ease the pain, suffering, and discomfort brought on by maladaptive and disillusioned thoughts (dis-ease). It has been our experience that separation of the intellectual masquerading of the mind’s activities from the brain’s functioning, can and will result in healthier attitudes, a heightened sense of energy, and an increase in productivity. One has become self-assured and more confident “If you can’t change your mind, you can’t change anything”,( George Bernard Shaw).
Although the quote appropriately illustrates an objective, the means of achieving this has been withheld. Change generally involves an effort such as establishing and rectifying antecedents of thought processes. We are not suggesting you change your thinking, but that you become conscious of it, evaluate it, and discern whether it serves your best interests. How do you dis-identify with “Stinking Thinking”, by simply focusing on a particular thought, evaluating its integrity, and questioning its payoff. What is it’s destination? What are the emotional attachments? What value do I place on thoughts and emotions?
Our treatment modalities seem to be most effective when practiced in conjunction with a twelve step program. It is our belief that there are no substitutes or more effective ways of treating addictions, then a twelve step program. We propose to provide noological understanding and guidance, meant to enhance the recovery process. We are committed to presenting all the armamentarium necessary to recover. Be cautioned, often parents, spouses and significant others tend to minimize the prodrome phase.
