I’ve seen people walk around with spiritual diseases. When I was in my late teens, I had a lot of friends and I’m sure people heard about me. I didn’t have a lot of friends and I certainly wasn’t the most popular person in the class. I was, however, one of the only atheists in my class.
Ive seen people in my class who have been so obsessed with trying to figure out why they do things. They never really had a good answer for why they did or didn’t do something, so they just kept trying to figure out why. This is a real thing in our society, and it’s not going away anytime soon.
I dont have a good answer for why people are so obsessed with trying to figure out why they do things. But I think it comes down to the same thing that is causing so many of our problems in our society right now: our obsession with our own ideas of what is ‘good’ and what is ‘bad’.
The problem with our society is that the majority of choices we make for ourselves are based on the opinions of others. We tell ourselves we want to do something, then we go searching through the internet for answers about what we’re supposed to be doing. These are the same people who make these choices. But they don’t have to. They don’t have to be right or wrong.
So, what are we looking for when we search for answers? We are looking for the answers of others. And the only people who have the answers we are looking for have already decided what to do. Not what we want, not what we think we want.
I had a friend say, “Don’t waste your time searching for answers. You already have all the answers.” And this was the time I had to laugh. If you are looking for the answers, you are looking for the answers, and you already have the answers. But if you are only looking for the answers, then you are wasting your time, and that is the same as wasting it. The answer is in the question. And the question is in the answer.
The spiritual diseases are the most common reason people give for not wanting to do something. They include things like procrastination, procrastination, procrastination, procrastination, procrastination, procrastination. We can all get procrastination ourselves, but we don’t all get spiritual diseases. The problem is that these feelings of “not wanting to do something” become so intense that we don’t even know we have them.
I can totally relate. I have a constant feeling of fear that something bad is going to happen if I dont make something happen. Sometimes that will be the fear of not feeling good enough, but more often than not it will be that whatever I decide to do or not to do has a detrimental effect on everyone around me. I had this same issue with a friend of mine about five years back, but we had never spoken about it.
This is why it is so important to remember to “treat others as they want to be treated”. It is so easy to get caught up in the drama of our own lives, but we can let that drama slide by by treating others as they treat us. When we treat others with respect, kindness, and kindness they will not only treat us as we deserve to be treated, but they will act in a way that supports us rather than causes us to be judged.
Spiritual diseases are a lot like the body’s immune system. At times, they can be really bad, but in general they are good. It is important to remember not to let your emotional states become too controlling of your health. The same can be said for the spiritual and emotional states that cause people to do and be bad.
