I was diagnosed with ADD/ ADHD years ago. My focus isn't very long at all and I'm very easily distracted. The common theme with a person like myself is this- The harder you try to concentrate/ focus, the worse it gets. We also procrastinate a lot. It is causing me to fail miserably. When I try to do work; I lose focus in seconds. I try and try to improve my focus and it gets worse when I try. Then; I procrastinate and it could be just before bed before I do anything. What happens is; I get distracted by everything you can think of each time I start to do anything. I haven't yet kicked the masturbation habit; which is NOT good. It has me very worried that I will fail in this lifetime and store up bad karma. I once went an entire year without masturbating when I was trying to get on the path before. I failed then. I have failed several times now. I really am worried about it. In fact; I'm downright scared. Maybe that's an emotion that is too negative and I need to focus on solutions instead of worrying. I was put on various drugs for many years for ADHD and depression. Would that have an effect on my condition now? My question here. Is there some sort of Gnostic remedy/cure for ADD/ ADHD typed symptoms? I need to improve the way my brain is focusing/ concentrating. Also; could karma from previous lives cause the ADHD symptoms? Should I negotiate karma after such monumental failures? I know these are several questions. I'm tired of failing this way and I want to put a stop to that pattern while I'm young and still have time. I'm 31-years-old.

The best remedy for curing ADHD is to STOP MASTURBATING and to practice transmutation. Everything else is a waste of time.

Again, if you don't know what you want from these studies, you will make no effort to achieve it. If you know what you want, then follow through with it. Otherwise you are fulfilling the myth of Sisyphus, who, after laboring to bring the stone of sex to the mountain (bringing that energy to your brain in order to heal yourself) you allow the stone to fall (back down through fornication), only engaging yourself in the mud of misery more and more.

You also really need to comprehend how and why masturbation is destructive. You obviously KNOW it is in your intellect, but you are yet to comprehend the terrible destruction it causes in yourself. This is the same with any addiction: alcohol, drugs, etc. Many addicts know their addiction is wrong, but they lack comprehension; therefore they repeat their misery.

Knowledge is of the mind. Comprehension is of the heart. Comprehension is what aids the disciple and transforms the previous fornicator INTO a disciple. You may know a lot of things, but if you have no cognizance of these teachings, then you will be lost. Yet if you become aware, from the depths of your soul, just what such habits entail and hold in store for you, you will NEVER DARE to touch yourself in such a filthy manner again!

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!"

I know you must be getting tired of my asking the same types of questions over again and not getting anywhere after advice has been given. I probably don't' look like I'm trying at all. I really am trying. Everything that everyone does is their own choice; I know. I would appreciate some advice in the area of my focus though. The ADD really can be hard to cope with in cases like mine. I really do have a rather harsh case. I'm lucky to concentrate on anything for five minutes. Like I said; any suggested remedies would be helpful. I hope I'm not being a bother.
