You cannot cure a thing or solve a thing by suppressing it. Suppression is absurd: It is masking, avoiding, hiding or sweeping under the rug.
Why would you want to suppress something? Let’s say you have an out-of- control appetite for food and you want to suppress your appetite. You don’t want to deal with the root cause of your appetite (which may be a spiritual void or emotional imbalance, or both). Instead, you want to keep the cause alive and only target the symptom of the cause and suppress the symptom, which is unwise because you’re still not dealing with healing.
You don’t arrive at healing by addressing the symptom. To do so would be the equivalent of addressing the reaction instead of the initial action in order to prevent the reaction. Healing entails an understanding of cause and effect.
Every action has a reaction. Suppression eventually reveals itself in expression. In other words, suppression creates a need to express-and it’s usually not the best form of expression.
When you suppress a thing, you keep a thing. It’s not seen at the surface, but it’s there and alive at the root, picking up steam or momentum in which to express itself when the time is ripe.
Why suppress a cough? The cough is the physical reaction to the result of hardened mucus lodged in the lungs. While there is medication to help you suppress the cough, however, the suppressing activity of the medication does not address the hardened mucus lodged in the lungs that is the true cause of the cough. You are only delaying the reflex of coughing by suppressing the cough. As long as the mucus is there, the cough will be there and it will be there until you address the root cause-the mucus in the lungs. Expel the mucus and eliminate the cough.
You feel lustful and because you are religious, you want to suppress your sexual desires. So you go celibate for a few years but the lust is still in you, lying dormant, grounding or rooting itself, but picking up steam and momentum in the darkness of the suppression. Then, you enter into a relationship and you become obsessed with sex. You are simply making up for all that inhibited sex that sought to express itself in your lust. Instead of giving the lust a proper outlet or re-channeling the sexual energy from the base of the spine up to the Third Eye or Ajna Chakra, you suppressed or repressed your strong sexual desires. You hid it in the dark and what happen to things (like seeds) in the dark? They take root, develop, grow, and sprout.
You want to lose weight so you need help suppressing your appetite, but appetite is natural; but you have an extraordinary appetite, you need more than is necessary or required which clearly denotes imbalance due to perception that you are lacking in some other area. You see, addiction always points to some void or perceived void. Addiction deals with compensation.
Appetite helps us to satisfy a thing, in the case of food, hunger. But why do you eat so much food, more than is necessary? Clearly, you eat so much because you are imbalanced somewhere.
So you take a particular product that suppresses your appetite and this allows you to lose weight and/or keep weight off, and you really think you are doing something healthy, but you’re not. Instead of concentrating on a particular thought process, attitude, diet and lifestyle that helps you to keep weight off while maintaining your ideal weight, all your focus is on suppressing.
An appetite suppressant (a natural one) should always be balanced with an appetite-increasing agent. This is why our Hunger Control works so well.
You are not tackling the true reasons for your weight problem by suppressing the appetite. By suppressing your appetite for food, you are developing an appetite for something else and perhaps are expressing it in some other area of your life at present that you may not be aware of.
Addiction is merely a sensor of suppression-a sensor that something is missing or deficient or neglected. Excess need of a thing is also a sensor and also denotes that something is missing or deficient.
In closing, by suppressing, you are only setting yourself up for a future fall because the underlying problem is still present, not being addressed, and magnifying itself and will find or create an outlet for expression in some other shape, fashion, or form.
The suppression of a thing gives it power.
You cannot or will not heal yourself from any disease or situation by resorting to suppression.
