Artificial paradise - testifies to the needs of the soul to which its true food is not given

Daily Meditation:  Monday, December 13, 2004

Each of us possesses a soul and a spirit, and this soul and spirit have needs. If so many human beings are unconscious of these needs, it is because they have stifled them by leading a life without ideals. But these needs are there, and sometimes they manifest in people but they do not understand the language. All these dangerous experiments – like drugs for example – that today tempt young people as well as adults, are expressions of something they are lacking, a call of the soul hungry for the infinite and demanding to be nourished. For what is left for the soul in a society in which all belief in a divine world has been destroyed and in which political rivalries and economic and social success are held up as ideals? Since we deprive the soul of the spiritual foods it needs to be able to soar into space, it looks for these elements in the material realm, in substances such as tobacco, alcohol and drugs. Yes, when the soul is not given the nourishment it needs, it seeks to satisfy itself by means of material foods. However it is these foods which destroy us.
