Golden Sunrise to All!
@PJ-Certified VK Teacher if I may be allowed to share my thoughts on this post.
If I may ask what your thought process behind someone eating Junk Food or watching Porn.
Do you (or whoever you were referring to in your question) feel compelled to eat junk food or watch porn?
Eating Junk food or even watching porn can sometimes be a momentary indulgence, we humans need indulgence every now and them – it satisfies our human body need.
However, sometimes we lose control over our own self and then the indulgence becomes a habit and then habit becomes an addiction.
This can be junk food or porn or alcohol or smoking or drugs, etc.,
When it becomes an addiction it inherently becomes more of an emotional problem and less of a physical problem.
A normal indulgence can become a repeated urge and an emotional dependency, there by resulting in to a psychological symptom of compulsive behavior.
We often relate to spirituality and religion in same context and realm, almost like synonymous words, and we believe that something such as porn is not acceptable by our religion hence it will impair our ability to be spiritual.
Spirituality (in my humble opinion) is the ability to be / feeling of / belief in the oneness between us and universe, divine force and Cosmic energies, it’s an essence of being in touch with our soul and inner self and cosmic energies.
Addiction is not a spiritual problem; however, it certainly impairs our ability to be spiritual, it may impair our ability to stay connected with the universe, divine and cosmic energies.
However, we may perceive addiction as religious failure as our religion as taught us some habits and principles. However, it’s not a religious problem either, its nothing more than a perception.
Addiction is more or less a psychological symptom (again in my humble opinion), in other words it’s the inability to stay connected with our inner self, out of touch with divine and cosmic energies. In some scenarios Addiction is caused by emotional distress and in other instances its caused by lack of self-control.
While addiction is not a spiritual problem, when we connect with divine and cosmic energies we feel less distressed, more in touch with ourselves, comfortable with ourselves and those around us, we feel more in self-control. We feel spiritually at peace. While recovering from addiction has very little to do with being spiritual, becoming spiritual or experiencing divine force can greatly help with overcoming an addiction.
Spirituality is an aspect of our innate nature, consciously or subconsciously feel the longing for something more, something deeper, something greater than who we are and experience the process of growth into a deeper connection with Divine, with ourselves, and the world around us.
Addiction often makes a spiritual / divine experience static. When we are in an addictive process, we want to hold on to that moment, and this leads us to a deeper need for that substance or process, in this process we lose connection with who we are, with those around us and it leads for us and our spirituality to become stagnate.
Everything in moderation is acceptable. As long as you are able to draw the line between a momentary pleasure becoming an innate need and addiction, as long as your actions don’t hurt yourself or those around you, as long as you have self-control and you are in touch with your own self and have the ability to have self-control and experience the deeper connection with divine and cosmic energies, everything in moderation is acceptable.
