Meditate or Medicate

Majid Ali, M.D.

Time wounds all heels. True, sometimes it also heals all wounds. Still, I ask: Was  there ever a time when people never faced the choice between meditation and medication? Probably not. If it were, it was a long time ago and that time is past now.

I don’t have the time. I often hear this from people who neglect a healthy spicy breakfast. If I don’t have a little time for health, I certainly will need much time for being sick. I remind myself of this enduring truth.

So do I meditate or medicate? Medication is not always a matter of popping pills in the mouth. Unless we are careful, we run the risk of medicating ourselves with toxic thoughts.
