Our Most Loving Father is Omnipresent, Omniscient, and Omnipotent. Christ Jesus the reality of individual being is my Bread and Wine. There is no fulfillment outside the continual acknowledgment of my Father, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Chukwu Okike Abiama), and Christ Jesus the Alpha and Omega of creation; the Author and Finisher of my fate.
Therefore, where is happiness? Happiness is in God. Where is peace? Peace is in Christ the hope of my glory. Where is fulfillment? Fulfillment is in the realization that I and my Father are one. There is no peace or fulfillment in anything external to me or outside conscious oneness with Christ Jesus.
Now why the influence of drugs and alcohol? They are fruits of good and evil that we appropriate by realizing a presence other than the Tree of Life, the infinite presence of the begotten Son of God, Christ Jesus, who is at the center of my being and the infinite universe.
The only fulfillment in the world is in the truth that Christ is in me and I am in Him. And Christ is Spirit. Therefore, I am Spirit, and so is my neighbor. My neighbor might not accept this, but I have to forgive seventy times seven, by realizing that Christ Jesus stands where my neighbor appears to be.
Furthermore, there is no bliss in drugs and alcohol; there is no joy in the fruit of good and evil. All bliss is in God; all joy is in Christ Jesus, who was, who is, who is to come the Almighty. In His presence, there is nothing that defiles or makes a lie that can abide. There is no depression, no worry, no fear, no loneliness. His divine presence at the center of my being and the infinite universe is my comfort, my love, and my peace. This is the truth that sets me free from the influence of drugs and alcohol as I dwell on it. Thou shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. John 8:32
