When we look at addictions, we don’t call them addictions, but dependencies. We see that they are expressed in many different forms and that this subject requires more explanation.

Society sees addictions as non-acceptable needs patterns. Because of this addicts are often placed outside of society, but it is assumed that they place themselves on the fringes of society.

Dependency means that the human feels he cannot cope with life if certain needs aren’t satisfied.

However, we would like to make a distinction here, because we see that dependency can be divided into three tracks.

1. Dependency may arise from curiosity.

2. Dependency arises from the genetic material.

3. Dependency may arise from restlessness.

We will examine these three tracks and hopefully your view on addiction will become more nuanced than what you have taken for granted till now.

People use labels such as alcohol addiction, tobacco addiction, food addiction and medicine or drug addiction.

Looking at dependencies, we see that they can exist in many forms and that everyone has his own interpretation of them. But it depends on personal standards whether they see them as such, because often various types of dependency are fitted into everyday life, they are accepted and they are even seen as virtues.

When you consider this statement: ‘Unless something is satisfied, a human cannot cope with life’, you can then see that a lot of leisure activities are also subject to dependency. So sports, music and even going to church could be dependencies.

These forms of dependency are often associated with old experiences and the possibilities a human already has in his life, so that he continually chooses a particular expression that brings him a brief moment of relief.

The relief a human experiences at that moment means that he has been able to shift his thoughts onto a different track so he doesn’t feel that restlessness for a while.

We are only referring to the third track of dependency here; to the human using these dependencies for survival and not because of their genetic material or because of curiosity.

On the third track, the stimulus is to look for a way to survive in order not to feel the restlessness that arises from emotional loads such as sadness, anger, hurt, jealousy, worrying about tomorrow, etc.

These emotions cause restlessness in a human who is sensitive to that. But a human doesn’t want to feel this restlessness and grasps for possibilities to control it.

Instead of examining this restlessness, because it says something about the lessons that his essence has brought to this life, he lets it exist and he searches for ways to survive.

These ways are very diverse and can take many different forms.

A human who switches on the radio as soon as he opens his eyes, actually says: ‘I cannot do without sounds around me’, and becomes just as dependent as someone who thinks in the morning, I must have a drink, or else I cannot start my day. Or the human who says: ‘I must go to church, otherwise my day does not start right.’

This is just a small selection of the many possibilities, but you may understand that with this short list we want to show that the first example is an accepted form, the second is a non-accepted form, and the third form is even seen as a virtue.

Mostly, humans are not aware of this and it remains a set of experiences that they get entangled in. Even so, each human will choose the form of dependency that he thinks suits him. It’s usually based on an old experience that the essence has brought from previous existences.

The human feels it is something familiar and safe. He falls back on an old feeling within himself: ‘I recognize this, it has already taken me a long way and will guide me through this life too’.

Certain forms of dependence could cause a loss of decorum.

Principles, standards fade away with these dependencies and the human constantly tries to find excuses to remain on this track. He will have to keep increasing the doses otherwise the restlessness will no longer be controlled.

But when a human gets caught in these dependencies and is only focused on surviving, he will adapt to it, and this adapting, like the loss of decorum, also implies that he’s letting go of his standards, his principles, the base of his humanness, because he thinks the use of any sort of drug is more important than what he has learned in his life.

Yet a human always has freedom of choice, even though he feels like he has lost it because of his dependency on certain drugs. But the human is actually afraid of becoming restless again, so he seeks relief or distraction in all kinds of drugs.

On the second track we see the human who carries the genetic material for certain forms of dependency.

For example, if in previous generations tobacco was used as a drug, then the ancestral imprint has already formed the physical body, the genetic material, in such a way that the present human has to continue using the drug.

In this case we don’t speak of addiction or dependency, but instead of a genetic imprint that is part of the physical body, and we accept this form as an impulse of a body that requires this substance.

We know that society sees this form in particular as an addiction, but our views suggest that we look beyond the human in his unidirectional presence in this space-time continuum on this bit of earth. For this human it is not a question of addiction. The genetic material inherited from previous generations indicates that the human doesn’t have the ability to break free from it.

For this human it is the same as needing food and drink.

The second track also has forms of dependency, but these are different from the ones we have discussed on the third track, because genetic material doesn’t say that you should attend church, does not tell you to turn on the radio, which is needed on the third track to suppress the restlessness.

The first track demonstrates curiosity.

Especially young people, who keep their eyes open, see that this society is very colourful in its possibilities and that they are subjected to a quantity of stimuli, even though they aren't looking for them.

You only have to take a look at a shop window or watch television. Especially young people struggling with questions like ‘Who am I, where do I fit in and what is the meaning of life?’ are over-stimulated by the goods in this society. We see that alcohol, cigarettes and drugs are seen as luxury items by young people. That it may create a dependency later on, just shows that there is more at play than curiosity alone and that one can easily lapse onto the second or third track.

When curiosity is piqued, especially during puberty and with the feeling of peer pressure on top of that, you can imagine that many youngsters want to participate and experiment with the possibilities. When you look at the entertainment venues that invite young people to get together, and the fact that young people pre-drink before going out, smoke weed, or take XTC to get high, you see that their intention is not to suppress restlessness, but to get as much as possible out of their night out.

So we see that many young people go back to regular life after this experimental phase, and there is no need to pay too much attention to it.

Only when the genetic material is present, or when they are very restless because they are confronted with heavy emotional loads, can someone gradually slip onto track three after puberty.

That is why we started with track three, so that it would be clearer why humans on this track experiment and later possibly remain stuck on it.

From the point of view of the World of Wisdom none of these tracks are considered sinful, or a form of evil or power. When you look beneath the surface of humans who have a dependency, they often are humans who still feel unsure about themselves on the first track, on the second track they feel the need because of their genetic material, and on the third track they feel that they are unable to cope with life and therefore reach for these substances.

So how can we apply the standard: this is sinful and belongs to the realms of evil?

We see that many people, who themselves have secretly experimented in the past or are busy with sexual feelings in their backrooms which can be just as addictive, are wagging their fingers and demonizing others. Putting themselves in the place of God and saying: ‘That is a sin and you will surely go to hell.’

Possibly you already know that what you call hell is to us nothing more than the various layers of cruder vibrations, and that entities residing in these layers are part of the World of Wisdom.

We want to help everyone get further on his path and we are not here to reject or to repudiate.

What we do see is that the human on the third track may still be dependent even after his death, because that human had been hiding from his own restlessness all of his life.

As you know, a human who dies takes the vibrations of his material consciousness with him like a wrap. He finds his restlessness back in this wrap, so he keeps searching for a form of sedation on our side as well. The deceased of the second track is not troubled by dependencies any more, the body remains behind and the genetic material no longer plays a part.

The departed of the first track doesn’t have any trouble either, because he has been able to satisfy his curiosity that was part of the doubts during puberty.

So you see that society has a view that is completely different from what we, in the World of Wisdom, are showing you.

When humans in society are punished for their excesses or for their dependencies, their hardship and degree of dependency only increase. The top-down imposed rules will never actually cause humans to let go of their dependencies.

Even though the government can set rules so that a human is helped more quickly in a hospital if he has a healthy lifestyle, or that restaurants and pubs are made smoking-free zones, we still say: ‘This is fighting a losing battle.’

It will never result in humans behaving themselves and living healthily, because a change in lifestyle can only come from the human himself.

We want to show you that all these rules are only created by thinking hats, as a result of certain standards. But most of all, and none of you should forget, they have arisen from the Christian principles in this culture to save humans from hellfire.

Every one of you has experienced times in your lives when you had the opportunity to consume substances, to make you feel comfortable for a moment, to feel secure or numb.

That doesn’t matter; it may be a potential stimulus for growth of self-consciousness.

We therefore think that our point of view is much better than that of the governments or society, and we hope that a sufficient number of humans get to see this, so that gradually a change in mentality can be established.
