For those who have struggled with addictive behaviors, tendencies, motivations, and emotional patterns for years without knowing how to change them, the time has arrived to be more hopeful. For the energy of your deeper being is now capable of making itself felt so that the choices you have made in the past no longer need to be the choices you make in the present.
We have come to think of addiction primarily as a physiological process with emotional roots. Yet, most addictions are deeply founded in a sense of spiritual emptiness that conveys a painful awareness that one’s life is not meaningful in some significant way. That the question of meaning arises is fundamentally a spiritual question, having to do with who one is and what one’s connection with life is as a whole.
