Addiction-a-Spiritual-Disease can be deconstructed by spirituality and practice.
Spirituality should include a deconstruction of our illusions, beginning with our UFOs.
Start deconstruction with our illusion of having something we never had.
Addiction-a-Spiritual-Disease begins as a disease of the spirit and usually ends up as a disease of the body, mind, and spirit. It finally devours our social, economic, and legal life.
What starts as anguish, a simple existential craving for wholeness, eventually envelopes the entire person’s self and life. This happens whether the substance is alcohol, weed, coke, speed, sex, food or simple greed.
We attempt to fill up our emptiness, our anguish, our existential-emotional-mind pain with meaning from outside ourselves.
Addictive behavior is like trying to make the ocean wet by pouring water into it. Doesn’t work.
We temporarily patch ourselves, or try to, with food and drink. Failing this, we seek other restless ego-satisfactions.
We move to alcohol, drugs, sex, and other risking and obsessive behaviors. We try to make the world fit our expectations. So we struggle on with our endless obsessive behaviors.
The truth is our human condition comes with a deep, built in longing for completion, for fulfillment. This desire is the seed of our subjective suffering; the source of our anguish.
You can’t fill the empty hole from outside, only from inside. We must regain our inner strength. Some call it their personal spiritual practice.
Yes, it is hard to find satisfaction, happiness, inside yourself, but, it is impossible to find it anywhere else.
