Have you done lots of 'work' on yourself and you're still a nut case?
Most old fashioned and mainstream psychology is based on the philosophy that you are broken and you need fixing. They label you and put you in an emotionally defective category.
They tell you that you were damaged in your childhood and you will need years of therapy to clean up the emotional mess of your life. You then spend your entire life going from therapist, to workshop and healing sessions to put your broken self back together... but this process is endless.
I know because I gave the fixing a good go myself and felt like I could go on digging forever. Just like waves in the ocean, our emotional waves will continue to rise, peak and crash back into the ocean for eternity. The bigger the storms... the bigger the waves. It is a natural part of being human.
The limited psychology perspective of needing to be emotionally fixed applies only if we look at ourselves on a purely emotional level.
Of course we need to face our emotions daily and dive right in particularly during difficult phases in our lives.
However we are so much more than emotions and need to also dive deeper for true healing.
On a deeper spiritual level we are not broken and we have never been broken. We are not damaged and we do not need fixing.
Consider this truth for a moment.
What if despite your neurosis, emotional wounds, crazy behaviours and circling patterns... you were pure peace, love and perfection beneath?
What if you were here to realise your spiritual perfection while loving and accepting (rather than constantly trying to fix) your naturally human emotional imperfections?
What if loving and accepting your madness was the key to allowing it's power to dissolve?
Meditation teaches us to dive deeper than our thoughts, feelings and emotional patterns.
When we meditate we welcome all of our neurotic thoughts and crazy emotions to rise.
We watch them emerge and if we have the courage to sit and observe for long enough, they leave just as easily as they came.
When we shift our focus from emotions and their triggered patterns of behaviour and dive deeper to the perfection below we can begin to really heal.
The patterns naturally have less power over us when our focus is on the calm, silent, stillness below. We can then choose our words and actions from the depth of who we are rather than a fleeting emotion.
