Addiction & Attitudinal Healing
RESISTANCE TO CHANGE
Addiction is a chronic, often relapsing brain disease that causes compulsive drug seeking and use, despite destructive consequences to a substance abuser life and to those around him/her. Although the initial decision to take drugs is voluntary for most users, the brain changes that occur over time challenge an addicted person’s self-control and hamper his or her ability to resist intense impulses to take drugs. The road to addiction is as complex and deteriorated as its nature. It takes a long way to reach its destination, the disease. As children grow and develop, the natural way of associating concepts and making connections gradually becomes more logical and more similar to adult cognitive processes. Addiction disrupts the process of thinking logically. We create the disharmony and unhappiness we experience because of the attitudes we hold in our minds. The separation we experience in our lives comes from projecting these thoughts and feelings onto people and events outside us.
Attitudinal Healing involves correcting our misperceptions and removing the inner obstacles to experiencing peace. This begins with having a willingness to find another way to look at the world, at life and at death – to have peace of mind as our only goal and the willingness to forgive as our main function. It is discovering the value we have placed on holding on to grievances, blaming others, or condemning ourselves, then making new choices to no longer find value in them.
Attitudinal Healing is a retraining of the mind and an opening of the heart, removing whatever blocks love’s presence. It leads to freedom rather than bondage. Attitudinal Healing is about teaching and demonstrating love, not fear, in both our professional and personal lives.
Attitudinal Healing is based on the belief that it is possible to choose peace rather than conflict and love rather than fear. It is based on the belief that love is the most important healing force in the world. Attitudinal Healing is a process for letting go of painful, fearful attitudes. When we let go of fear, only love remains.
