Shine the light of awareness on addiction, and we see it for what it truly is: distraction. Anything that distracts us from what is happening right now is an addiction.
Addiction can also been seen as avoidance.
In our culture, the definition of addiction is so loaded, drugs, alcohol, sex, gambling, but actually almost anything can be an addiction.
In order to tackle addiction, we need to restate it. The word itself is too huge and has too much stigma and weight and severity around it.
How can you, of your own volition, even begin to navigate that reality?
Sugar, caffeine, exercise, social media, Internet shopping, the phone, email, obsessive housecleaning, you name it, if we understand and rephrase these as distractions, then we bring it all into the context of either being present for life or not.
If you’re experiencing the wholeness and completeness of life, you are allowing yourself to feel the underlying energy. We’re afraid, or sad, depressed, or grieving, or furious, or envious, or even joyful, and we reach for the bag of M&M’s or the bottle of vodka in the freezer.
When we do this, we are avoiding our feelings. And what happens? Vibrational density is what happens. Stasis. Nothing can flow.
