What is addiction?
Trying to fill a void.
Running from the frightening.
So what causes void?
Lack of appreciation....compassion...
And those things can't come from outside
sources, lest we always be dependent.
We need a source of inspiration--
and unless we transform into that
self-sustaining source, learning to provide
for ourselves, we will always be seeking.
Behind the addiction is the reason for the addiction.
The past brought us to where we are...
but our present self can be whatever we determine.
