I feel that my love of the musical instrument (the guitar as an object) has separated me from the love of God. I own several guitars, each one of them very precious to me. And I have a habit of acquiring more. However, rather than becoming happier and more satisfied with my collection, with each guitar brings me a longing for something more. I think it's true that the more things and possessions we obtain in this life the further separated we are from Him. It's like this: I collect guitars to fill the God shaped hole so to speak. How do I break this cycle? The things we own end up owning us and attachment is at the heart of all suffering. I am very attached to each of my guitars. While I enjoy playing I have made an idol out of music. What's your spiritual advice for ridding myself of my addictive guitar collecting behaviour? After-all, I can't take my guitars with me. Or maybe i'm thinking too deeply again.
