We are all addicts.
This human realm is created by desire.
We find it difficult to get what we want,
so we get frustrated.
That leads to more desire,
which leads to addiction…!
The causes of addiction are the basic building blocks of this universe: attraction, repulsion and inertia. In spiritual terms that is: desire, aversion and ignorance.
To counter this, all we have to do is recognise our true nature which is the exact opposite of these three poisons: Cognisance, Emptiness and Compassion.
You have to be a spiritual engineer to counter
That’s what meditation is all about.
