On his journey he discovered that there is no short cut to healing.Short cuts may provide temporary relief but but as soon as the effect of it goes away the feeling going to come back with even double the force forcing us to get into unhealthy habits of shorts cuts.The only way to heal holistically is to feel mindfully by Allowing/Acknowledging/Accepting/Welcoming/Hosting/Observing /Acquainting & letting it be without getting involved with it.he says what gets felt comfortably is what gets healed.
