Addiction Consumes Us
When we are addicted to an idea
– our truth –
we see nothing else.
We can be addicted to anything
– political ideas, spiritual teachings, social affairs –
and see nothing else.
Addiction is being fixated in rejecting others’ views. It’s easily done; we do it all the time.
This is why we need panoramic vision, and compassionate empathy to safeguard against arrogance and narrow-mindedness.
There is always another way of looking at things. As a Buddhist, I do not believe in a God, but I do not deny God-consciousness, which is our highest part of pure consciousness.
