Understanding Dis-ease : A 5 Min. Podcast

11 October, 2020Podcasts, News

Crossroads Recovery Centre · 5 Min Contemplation#1 Understanding The Dis-ease .mp3

A 5 minute contemplation on Understanding Dis-ease . Do you ever think ‘Why do I do the things I do’? Do you ever contemplate that ‘driver’ you have inside yourself and wonder what you can do about it? What is the driving force that makes us prone to obsessions and compulsions ? Obsessions are not limited to substances- obsessions can be related to our behaviour and thinking, for example : finances, food, games, social media, carbohydrates or relationships.

What impact do these behaviours, thoughts and compulsions have on us physically, spiritually, emotionally and financially ? Are we even able to identify how we are feeling and if we are even sane ?

Self-centred routines are the result of our compulsions and obsessions, but how do we find respite from them ? Do we have control over our behaviours and thoughts ?

The solutions only come to us when our perception is not clouded by us acting out, but how do we manage that ?

Maybe it’s time to think about 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.

  • On the last day of my stint at Crossroads I could only express gratitude towards all who works there. A wise councillor once commented on my question when one is ready for rehab by explaining that when one is ready for rehab, rehab is ready for you.

  • I was lost and my soul was broken until I ended up at Crossroads and was introduced to the Twelve Steps. With the help of their excellent staff and amazing support I have recently been clean for 18 months, I could not have done it without them!
