People in our society will continue to have very short flings with the things most beneficial to life. Although they commit to a life long relationship with things that cause the most grief, heartache, and pain. The chemical reactions naturally produced by the human body are far more addictive than any drug made by man. Yet man has the ability to influence the minds and emotions of humans, that create that chemical reaction we perceive as love, hate, depression, and pain. Most of us are addicts. What are you addicted to? If you have been unhappy most of your life, you are addicted to unhappiness. You attract it and pursue it daily.
Picking a new addiction is very possible. Becoming addicted to Joy, Peace and Love is an option. Giving up on poverty, financial heart aches, and low self esteem is an option. Try doing the opposite of what you have done for so many years. Seek wise counsel and master self! Sacrifice and achieve. There is no more time for excuses and blaming.
Service leads to a life of influence and authority. Giving back attracts everything you hope to have in your life. If energy is transferred, and you hold on to what you have, how can more energy return to your life. The energy you possess was given to you with the expectation of you using it to increase someone else. And you wonder why you remain the same??? Give away what was given, and it will be multiplied.
