Healing Bad Memory

Without deep practice of mindfulness, bad memory can bring a lot of problems. Because it comes everyday, without any filter.

Many people who experience stroke or illness aorund the brain have some connection with the inablity to manage bad memory.

Some neuro-scientist call it thinking-feeling loop. Stimulated by the external things like sound or picture, brain recall bad memory from the past.

That bad memory give birth to negative thinking which followed by negative feeling. If this kind of loop happened many times, thats the beginning of many dangers like stroke.

To help you live healthier, any time bad memory appear, simply realize that it’s something natural. It’s a biological process in the brain. Something that happen to everyone.

Something to do with nerological circuit in the brain. No need to entertain it by thinking too much. Do not let it gives birth to negative feeling.

Simply realize the impermanent nature of bad memory. It appears in one time, then disappear. As simple as clouds in the sky.

Keep reminding yourself, you’re not those clouds, you’re a witnessing sky. Another analogy, bad memory is like picture appear on the TV screen.

Any pictures can come and go, but the TV screen will remain the same. The same thing happen to the true you. It’s touchless.

In the language of meditation, meditation heals you not by thinking, but by witnessing. Meditation heal not by removing the bad, but by smiling to both good and bad.

As deeper practice, simply put bad memory as the dark part of the Yin-Yang.
Without darkness, there will be no light. Darkness is here to brighten the light.

Consequently, the grip of bad memory loosening from time to time. If the meditation practice is deep enough, you can even smile to bad memory.

As a result, bad memory is no longer release the seeds of problems and illness inside. You begin to live in the beautiful home of peace.

About the author

H.H. Guruji Gede Prama

Gede Prama started his spiritual journey through a dialogue with his symbolic Guru in a village at the north of Bali. The journey is then being enriched with his experiences of studying abroad, his meetings with the world greatest spiritual Gurus: His Holiness Dalai Lama, The Venerable Thich Nhat Hanh, as well as Professor Karen Armstrong; and also being deepened by his intense meditation practices.

Despite the fact that he was once a CEO of a large corporation with thousand of employees, and was traveling abroad frequently for the purpose of teaching, yet, being deeply moved by the Bali bombing incident in 2002, he then decided to leave everything and went back to his home island.
He has never leave Bali for the past few years. In fact, he rarely leaves the silence of the forest where he lives, except for the purpose of teaching at the sacred sites within Bali.
