An excessive desire for money, food, fame,
power or sex.
You need to learn how to manage
your instinct for MATERIAL, EMOTIONAL, and SOCIAL SECURITY,
your needs for ACCEPTANCE and LOVE,
and your fears of REJECTION and FAILURE.
Aside from prayer, the way to overcome this is to do the opposite:
To focus more on giving rather than getting,
to think of the interest of others more rather than your own,
to try to be more ascetic and self-sacrificing.
Is this something that you think you can begin working on?
Is there someone in your life that you can begin showing your change to?
