Addictions tune one out from reality spiritually!

Included in addictions are anything one feels compelled to become strongly attached to despite their harmful impact on your ability to cope with reality! Cigarettes are extremely addictive and often are not considered for the spirit altering addictive impact they have on people! People would not smoke them and face the really harmful physical harm they do to them if they did not have such a psychological/spiritual hold on them! Food addictions also can be extremely strong and also can have a very negative impact on health! Obesity has reached an epidemic level in this world in recent times along with so many other serious health problems that result from overeating and eating unhealthy, but very addictive(flavorful)foods designed by the food industry to boost sales! One can develop enough hunger between meals especially if you exercise that you will find healthy foods attractive. Frequent small meals can help one to get a constant supply of nutrition! Just make them small enough that one will get a constant supply of nutrition!

Addiction to spiritual beliefs also cause harm by preventing people from improving them, which is really needed in an age in which advanced technology is causing so many serious problems that need to be addressed by people with their spiritual energy very tuned in and grounded in a rational way on the challenging physical reality we now exist in! Hedonism is the enemy of spiritual development, and is extremely present in this modern age we live in! The USA tends to have an economic system geared too much toward the pursuit of pleasure and unhealthy excesses!

Addictions also distort the mind making delusions more attractive than reality, and making the effort to connect with serious sources of information about the reality we exist in more difficult! So much misinformation is circulating in this world often that support extreme viewpoints which can be very intoxicating to those with out a good enough grip on the complex reality we exist in with all of its mysteries and variables that requires one being able to see many sides of any issue in order to figure out how to get a better picture of what is true. People often become addictive to extreme viewpoints and to the crazy conspiracy theories that support them! We have so many serious mental health problems in this world as a result of all the unhealthy addictions that tune people out from reality while harming their physical and spiritual health!

We badly need to advance further spiritually on this planet where its technology has advance a lot in recent history, but that has not advanced as much spiritually! We just do not have the spiritual maturity on this planet to handle the serious problems of our age. Addictions play a major role in holding us back spiritually! Addictions to the beliefs of the past keep us from developing a better spiritual connection to reality so that we can seriously recognize what we need to do to get more out of ourselves spiritually, and then as a result, better able to contribute in cooperation with others to making this world a better place to exist on!

I find that orgasmic like bliss and hedonistic desire hinder meaningful spiritual development

I am into leading a meaningful life! People like my healing energy and find my serious creative approach toward the spiritual often as quite entertaining despite its serious purpose geared to making a positive difference in a world that badly needs to improve the spiritual state it is in! It is true that I am not much into orgasms, since I tend to utilize my sexual energy for more serious spiritual purposes. Orgasm actually is not required in order to develop more intimacy sexually! And orgasm when it does happen can bring a deeper sense of closeness without putting one in some drug like “bliss” state! So many people are addicted to sex for how it makes them feel, and do not really connect really deeply with their partner! Most of us are just not very good at really connecting deeply spiritually with ourselves or others on this planet! People often feel strongly connected with others when they share drug like experiences that do not create really deep or meaningful connections with the level of understanding that comes with them! If we are to heal ourselves and our planet we have to take a lot more serious approach toward life and stop being so heavily into hedonistic desires.
Being in a blissful/intoxicated state tend to disconnect people from reality! So many people have spiritual beliefs that seek a blissful state, rather than the more serious state required to make a really positive and meaningful difference in a world that has so many serious problems that need to be addressed! We have so many harmful drugs in our society that handicap our ability to get the most out of ourselves spiritually and be able to be serious enough to do what it takes to heal ourselves and our planet! We have too many spiritual beliefs that support a type of intoxicating spiritual escapism that makes it difficult for people to focus their spiritual energy in a really serious way on the challenging physical world we exist in and all the serious problems that exist in it! We need spiritual theories that help us to better connect and cope with the reality we now exist in on this planet rather than the desire to escape from it!
I have so much valuable spiritual stuff of value on the internet representing a lifetime of intense spiritual effort to improve the spiritual theories and techniques that exist on this spiritually backward planet: https://astrogoodwin.wordpress.com/2017/10/09/links-to-my-spiritual-stuff-on-internet/

The physical-spiritual connection and delusions

It is so important that one develops a strong spiritual connection to the challenging physical reality one exists in right now on this Earth! Spiritual strength comes from this connection with this resistant substance that challenges us and brings out more of what we are capable spiritually. We need to be focused on the hard reality that this physical substance provides. Spiritually what we put our energy into becomes real to some degree. The problem is that if what we put our energy into spiritually does not align well with the physical reality we are all spiritually connected to, then it takes a lot of extra energy into it to support it! The more delusional a belief, the more energy is wasted supporting that belief and the less one is able to maintain a strong grip on the hard reality we are part of. People who are quite delusional in what they believe spiritually can be quite confident in their beliefs especially if they are part of a group or organization that helps support that delusional belief.

In times of crisis is when beliefs(spiritual theories) get really challenged as to how well they actually work. Those who train their body hard doing exercises that improve the physical-spiritual connection require spiritual theories that really enhance their connection to reality in order to do them and do them safely! Doing spiritual crisis style training helps one to get a stronger spiritual connection to reality so that one will be drawn to spiritual theories that really work well in our reality. Actions and results count a lot in this challenging reality we are part of. Those who actually do the hard work required to become strong and aware spiritually can become really confident spiritually as a result of how well their training works and how well they know they can perform in a crisis situation. People who are delusional can project a lot of confidence and be quite arrogant, but are very reliable when really challenged and the bubble they created to protect their delusion is threatened.
This world is heading toward a crisis, since we are not facing reality well enough in a technological age that demand so much more out of us spiritually than any previous period in our history on this Earth! We need to advance a lot more spiritually so that we develop the spiritual maturity(grip on reality)required to effectively deal with the serious problems that exist in this world. When scientific advancement gets ahead of our spiritual maturity to handle it, we must advance further spiritually or we will be in deep trouble. We really need to develop more rational, reality based spiritual theories that help us to better cope with the intense challenges that now exist on this Earth. We really need to become a lot less delusional spiritually.

Spiritual energy invested in supporting wild conspiracy theories!

When big events happen on the world scene that are traumatic and cause quite a bit of political upheaval often the whole truth is hard to find since life is so complicated and often all the facts are just not discoverable. People who expect more of the truth than the official one and that is possible to obtain, will find many sources that will offer a different, but distorted version of what really happened that are presented by people who will come up with conclusions that fit a world view that demonizes certain people with power in this world and gives them credit for being able to pull off things beyond their level of competency. I am into hard evidence before drawing conclusions and an leery of those who tend to not have a very balanced perspective on how this complicated reality works. A lot of innocent people are convicted of crimes in this world when the evidence is not really solid, but they appear to be guilty to a lot of people. People have been put to death, who were later found to be innocent. So, it is so important to be very careful about jumping to conclusions without really solid evidence and to make sure your sources are reliable and do not present a distorted view of the reality of a situation due to having a distorted vision of this world and certain groups with power that exist in it.

Conspiracy theories may be intriguing and satisfying to how one would like to picture this world, but they are rarely a very accurate version of what has really occurred.  The portion of the truth that really counts has a lot of power contained in it and will eventually come out and be accepted by most of the informed public. It just takes too much effort to hide the truth from the public when it is backed up by enough evidence from credible sources. People like to believe they are smarter than others and thus have a better version of the truth than others, but one has to be careful about allowing ones ego to become too inflated as to how much of the truth one is capable of obtaining. Belief in wild conspiracy theories can eat up a lot of ones spiritual energy defending them within oneself and outside oneself and can distort ones vision of this world and a lot of the people in it. The part of the truth that is solid and obtainable when it comes to big events happening in this world has its own very strong energy and can not be readily hidden. The established order in this world may not be perfect, but they are not as messed up as a lot of people believe, or as competent at pulling off the great deceptions some people are so ready to believe they are.

We have a lot of delusionary energy in this world and fringe/extremist groups tend to feed off of this. A lot of delusionary people can appear quite credible! Con men are all over the place with some of them believing the distortions of reality that they come up with. Conspiracy theories can dominate the internet with more and more people elaborating in an imaginative way on the theory. The established version of what happened can readily be buried in an internet search engine by a sea of articles supporting a conspiracy theory. To those who are psychologically predisposed to believe in these theories this can make these theories seem so much more credible. I am into intense physical-spiritual/meditative training geared to give one a stronger spiritual grip on reality. It is not easy to get a stronger grip on reality so that one will develop the intuition required to sense what people/sources are reliable and what version of the truth is most credible and in spiritual harmony with how our reality works..

I believe people sometimes will badly misinterpret the physical/spiritual experiences they have or witness

It is often  believed that the type of spiritual energy that can have a negative affect on people can originate from other than human sources on this planet.  I feel negative/delusional spiritual energy comes from spirits that are actually incarnated on this Earth with their spiritual/emotional parts of their brain functioning on a strong enough level to cause trouble to others.  Often spiritual phenomena can be explained many ways.  I feel that  negative/destructive/delusional spiritual energy is supported by a lot of the inhabitants of this planet.  I feel that the inhabitants of this planet are very responsible for the spiritual state this planet is in.  I do not see alien spirits(not now incarnated on this Earth) as having much power spiritually here, since they are not connected to this planet strong enough to have any power here.  Ghosts, I believe have to be energized by real(alive) people with the spiritual/emotional capability of doing so.  I believe alien abductions are misinterpretations of what someone is experiencing in an altered spiritual state and set off by spiritual energy directed toward this individual from some living human source.  A lot of humans are good at sending out really crazy/delusional type spiritual energy and many individuals are vulnerable to it.  I believe people will dream up something to represent the type of energy they are picking up spiritually on a psychic level.  I feel even groups of people with shared beliefs that help distort how they interpret what is happening can even experience a sort of group delusion with the members of the group helping each other to see things in a distorted form.

I feel that spiritual energy will affect people often in a way similar to how it affects ones dreams at night.  One will go into an altered state of consciousness and then your subconscious mind will represent the spiritual energy directed at use in the form of some sort of analogy(often exaggerated) with the images produced  being very much affected by your beliefs.  People who have beliefs that are less grounded in this solid physical reality we exist in, will be more vulnerable to be adversely affected and to imagine rather crazy/wild things happening to them when exposed to the messed up spiritual energy directed their way.  Spiritual energy can actually be strong enough to manifest itself visually and can even be captured on film at times, but is not real in the physical/scientific senses.   Often people will have delusions that they mistake as real, or they will misinterpret what they are experiencing.  Delusions can sometimes be of a more positive nature in how they feel even a little intoxicating, but can still seem real(physical) and be misinterpreted due to the images ones subconscious creates being distorted by ones willingness to accept certain wild beliefs that are accepted to readily in certain spiritual/religious circles.

The hard truth is not easy to obtain.  Often people are too willing to believe almost anything and that can lead them to have life-like spiritual experiences that are badly misinterpreted, or even real life experiences they experience being spiritually distorted and misread.  One has to be quite skeptical of a lot of the information people put forth as the truth in this world, since so much misinformation is present here, often on both side of subject/issues, with those who differ  believing their life experiences back up their viewpoint.  The truth is not easy to discover, and jumping quickly to certain conclusions(often as a result of a bias caused by ones beliefs) will often distort all your experience especially those that have a strong spiritual component to them.

 

I strongly believe that a spirit can not be impactful spiritually on this planet, unless it is incarnated in a body with an adequate brain and has done the necessary training required to develop the spiritual strength required.  That the brain actually has spiritual parts(related to sleep and emotions) of it that need to be developed in order for a spirit to be able to impact this world spiritually.  I do not believe a spirit without a body has much power in itself, but will gain power only through the energy channeled their way by those with a physical body that enables them to do so.  I design my spiritual beliefs so that they will work really well in this challenging physical world that really can test how well ones spiritual beliefs really work when one is facing really strong physical/spiritual challenges.
