Western psychotherapy and the personal growth process has gained considerably from the experience acquired within Eastern traditions. Living Within makes it apparent that there is a great deal more to learn that is of both practical and theoretical value.Our psychological state is normally characterized by continual disturbances of varying degrees of severity. Some of the common disturbances are fear, anxiety, depression, insecurity restlessness, anger, jealousy, suspicion, etc. up to a certain degree; such disturbances are considered “normal”. When the disturbances experienced by an individual exceed what is regarded normal, the person is said to be suffering from a lack of “mental health”. When disturbances reach extreme proportions and significantly disable an individual, the person is deemed to be suffering from mental illness. Thus, mental health is generally understood as absence of marked psychological disturbances.
