Seperation is created by the mind & ignorance is at the root of suffering
Ever heard of Ram Dass before now?
Well I'd suggest we get acquainted today.
It's becoming more and more obvious that our society has SO MANY DISTRACTIONS. Everywhere one looks, you can find something that can provide us with a short period of "ahhhhh".
What are some of the most common distractors/easers of pain and suffering and, more importantly, which one of them is a personal indulgence?
Any of these resonating with you?
Well, I'll go first. I've got #1 thru #4 covered HAHAHAHA
Ram Dass goes on to explain how our addictions manifest themselves from deep within our own personal experience and/or the longing to have "oneness" within the family structure.
It's extremely interesting to note the direct correlation between the brains behavior and what it is that our brains crave...COMFORT and STABILITY. Because of that fact, our brains will choose the thing that provides/associates with comfort OVER doing the hard work 100 times out of 100 UNLESS we demand it to conduct itself differently.
This is the same characteristic that makes our species different/elevated above the most intelligent and physically dominant animals. Human will!!!
It's that same process and principle one must keep in mind when dealing directly with addiction.
