Addiction

 (Taken from the book: Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra)

Addiction is the #1 disease in our world today. It is, directly and indirectly, related to all other diseases.

We are addicted because we are living from our source. We have lost our connection to our soul.

Self-destructive behavior is an unrecognized spiritual craving.

We hunger for the ecstatic experience – for the ecstasy, the stepping out.

True ecstasy is stepping out of the bondage of time-bound, space-bound world of materialism. We long to step out of the limitations of The Body. We long to be free of fear and limitations.

Addictions are the search for the exultation of spirit.

The only cure for addiction is spiritual.
