We Desire God…But Addiction…


“After twenty years of listening to the yearnings of people’s hearts, I am convinced that all human beings have an inborn desire for God. Whether we are consciously religious or not, this desire is our deepest longing….It gives us meaning….It is a hunger to love, to be loved, and to move closer to the Source of love…. But something gets in the way….Our desires are captured and we give ourselves over to things that, in our deepest honesty, we really do not want….Addiction…turns us away from love…..Addiction attaches desire, bonds, and enslaves the energy of desire to certain specific behaviors, things, or people….Addiction is the powerful psychic enemy of humanity’s desire for God.” Gerald May
