Notes

Description
"Natural rest for addiction" is Scott Kiloby's book employing his unique perspective on recovering from addiction. Thoughts tell us that the present moment is lacking, and other thoughts lead us towards addictive substances and activities that provide only temporary relief from the uncomfortable emotions and sensations that we are trying to avoid. It stands to reason that if addiction is primarily a thinking problem, then more thinking won't help. Instead of introducing new belief systems or thinking strategies, Scott points to us to living in the peaceful and natural rest of the present moment, where all thoughts, emotions and sensations are allowed to come and go without "hooking" us into their grip anymore. This deep and profound acceptance of our inner experience is the perfect antidote to the constant desire to change, fix, improve or get rid of the thoughts, emotions, and sensations that we experience with addiction.
