Gambling: The Seeking of Unearned Reward
« on: April 02, 2021, 07:15:59 AM »
Peace All,

I wrote a new article today "Gambling: The Seeking of Unearned Reward"

Excerpt: "Gambling addiction can cause you to lose your friends and family, and often causes divorce, it creates tremendous social isolation, since gambling become the most important thing, more important than work, relationships, honesty, or responsibilities."

good logic

Disguise is used to gain an advantage on people. Disguise is the opposite of honesty.. Disguise is a trap.

Drugs are disguised as medicine, gambling is disguised, as investment many other vices are disguised and we can all easily fall into the trap.

Our spiritual self is always under attack by our body desires and lusts. It is a daily struggle and an ongoing war.

Even the basic necessities of  life like eating, playing,having hobbies,.. have a balance and going over the limit of the balance is destructive to the spiritual self.

Our habits can easily become addictions. The body wins and the spiritual self  is weakened and loses to the desires and lusts.

How can one find the balance  between body and soul? 

Looking after the body mostly and ignoring the soul is an imbalance. The worldly life is heavily biased towards the good of the body and does nothing for the soul., The body is connecting to the worldly life.
The soul needs to be connected to the creator for the balance to be restored.

One can call it following the straight path with being GOD conscious if they like. It is the  hardest path in one s life.

Basically it is like waking up from a nightmare.. It is like changing from being a walking zombie into regaining your senses and brain.

Simply we need to tap deep inside us and wake our soul up.

Money,material things and all things of this life must not be  at the top of the priorities  because they are worthless for the soul.
Knowledge , honesty and good morals open the soul for connection to its maker to get nourished.

By all means feed your body and look after it but not at the expense of your soul.
Look after both and keep the balance. Search inside you to find a way . It is in the instinct , we simply ignore it.
 May the Lord cure our bad addictions.
GOD bless you all.
