#23 Fear Of The Dark
Fear of the dark. We have a long relationship with the dark and many people have used this fear to their advantage. It’s important because it can give us some perspective over how much control we have over our mind, versus how much of what we do is based on our genetic coding.
There is a field of study that has looked at how much of our behavior and actions are directly tied to our genes. This is important if you suffer with any addiction, whether its food, sex, alcohol or drugs. Are we able to win the war against our base natures or are we doomed to suffer eternally?
There is so much we know and there is so little we know. Years ago we thought the Atom was the smallest particle, now it’s a Quark? We have done so much research trying to understand ‘mind over matter’ and how to rise above.
Where to begin
This work has to start somewhere and the jumping off point is accepting how powerless we are over the world and it’s things. This brings us to the point of doing something about us and our mind. To learn more please listen to the podcast.
I hope you enjoy it!
This podcast was recorded as a series of lectures given to people in 12 step addiction recovery treatment. The purpose of these talks was to teach and motivate individuals to search for their own spiritual solution to their addiction.
