ACIM video – How to Heal Addiction – A Course in Miracles Master Teacher David Hoffmeister

And what was coming to me today, to talk a little bit about was that the metaphor from this world What the world calls 'addictions' addictions in this world can be quite intense Not often recognized for what they are Some of them are more talked about socially like

Drugs and so forth and then there is addictions That we feel like we just keep coming back to and coming back to Some of you might have seen the movie 'What the Bleep Do We Know?' And in that movie the addiction is defined very very simply as something that you cannot stop

Yeah, so you can say in this world it would be like, a behavior pattern that whether it's taking drugs or any number of forms It's something that you cannot stop You feel like you've lost control voluntary control over it and you repeat it over and over and over Even if it has destructive aspects

It seems to reek havoc on your life it's called an addiction because it seems like, you know, There is great difficulty in stopping it and people do succeed in transcending them So we can say ultimately that if addiction is something you cannot stop that eventually when you do stop you can go "Okay, that is good – I kicked it

" "I kicked the habit" How many people here in this particular lifetime have gone through an experience of an addiction that you were able to literally, transcend? Okay

That's a lot of hands And then, what was helpful in that? I mean obviously, addictions can seem to be to those of you who have gone through that it can be very very intense You could talk about nail biting white knuckling cold turkey All kinds of aspects of help and support that are so helpful What have you felt, if I had mentioned the words 'help' and 'support' it terms of those addictions what what was it that seemed to be the most helpful thing, in turning it around and transcending it? [Woman] Being gentle with myself Being gentle with yourself, okay Anybody else? [Man] Not judging myself [David] Not judging yourself

[Woman] Clean up and release the underlying beliefs and feelings of unworthiness, shame and guilt [David] Okay very important, getting at what is underneath and releasing what's underneath of the seeming behavior pattern [Woman] Having a reason to quit more than I wanted to be addicted [David] Okay, motivation, a reason to quit more than to keep the addiction
