Medication on the Spiritual Path.

Quote.

When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.

Question:

Do you think that ,despite progress in the spiritual quest, some individuals need medication to control these conditions? Or, do you think that continuing meditation and Mindfulness will bring all beings to a peaceful state of mind?

Response:

I assume the conditions that you are talking about that might require medication are serious events, like psychotic breaks or such. In my experience, there are some rare cases where medication is helpful in the short-term to help someone deal with such an extreme psychological episode. In those cases, it is better to back off the meditation and spiritual practices until a stability and balance is restored. Again, in my experience these situations that require pharmacological intervention are very rare. In most cases the occasional bumps on the spiritual path are easily handled with various natural supportive techniques.

Love,

Deepak

    I respectfully beg to differ. I have been a meditator for many years and found myself in need of anti-depressants several years ago. I recently chose to to stop taking the medication and shortly went into breakdown, in spite of my meditation practices. I find the medication keeps me balanced and able to function in the world.
