Addiction & The Spiritual Quest
“It is the nature of desire not to be satisfied, and most human beings live only for the gratification of it.” ~ ARISTOTLE
What sets the stage for addictions? On a metaphysical level addictions are a misguided search for self-love and spiritual fulfillment. From a psychological perspective addictions connote an absence of primal bonding. The child’s soul is abandoned when deified parents betray trust.
