We are all addicted.
Addiction bears the handwriting of the ego. It takes a desire, a fixation, and it builds a stronghold around it. The energy of addiction is directed outward and it’s purpose is distraction. Distraction from all that is unpleasant, painful or uncomfortable. It is a choice, between being addicted or being present. How can I be addicted and conscious at the same time ? Awareness cancels out addiction, it is safe, it is easy and it works in 100% of the cases.
But there is one condition – dissolving an addiction means to be willing to embrace the darkness too. It means to place honesty over the illusion, it means to face one’s fears and shadows. It means to detach from the lies we keep telling ourself, because we want to feel safe.
Addiction is our compulsion to remain with what we know. Do you rather want to be safe, or continue to hold on to a false refuge. It is your choice.
