Question: I’m 20 years of age. I’ve been part of BK for 1year. I joined BK because of an unexpected failure. I have been trying prevent myself being addicted to TV and internet, but in vain. Please suggest me ways to get away from it. Thank you. Om Shanti

Thank you for your good question!

Dear soul,

Welcome to the “die alive” club! Meant for those who are die hard fans of God and self-transformation! 🙂

You recognize that you have an addiction. Stop trying to stop it.
Just give your TV away for ‘free’ to a “good home.” Stop paying the internet service at home. That is all.

You cannot stop your addictions now, but you can get rid of the “triggers,” if you believe that those things are giving you sorrow in your life. That is, if you have understanding.

At that point, you will be “free” to observe your own addictions. What do you feel? What is that which is pushing you to do this? Unless there is an understanding which comes through observing the benefits of TV and internet in relationship with your spiritual life; all that you will do is suppress your obsessive “need” to watch TV and to be on the internet. That is to be “busy.”

Hint: The issue is not the TV nor the internet. The issue may reside in your addictive personality to “do something” all the time.
The feeling of boredom may arise. Welcome it. Deal with it. Be his friend. Then, it will go away by itself.

You have a good start in the BK life, you have a wonderful opportunity to “know yourself.” 🙂

Best wishes!
