What I meant was that when we lead a spiritually-fulfilling life; considering others and how they are affected in our decisions, working to make the world a better place, and practicing love and tolerance towards others, our mind relaxes and our body feels better. When we act out of fear, and step on other people's toes, our minds cannot relax and our bodies become filled with anger and tension. In a nutshell we have to make sure that money, power or recognition aren't our God. They are of the ego, which is negative and destroys the spirit. Thus the stereotype of the unhappy rich person. Money in and of itself is not bad, but the pursuit of it for the sole purpose of "being rich" will ultimately never be completely fulfilling. Temporarily it might feel great, but the Ego will always need more. The Ego cannot get enough, but the spirit is fed by connecting to our fellow man and nature in simple easy ways we can do every day. I highly recommend "A New Earth" by Eckhart Tolle. (I might have misspelled his first name) If there is an underlying addiction, 12 step programs are also excellent ways for people to put this kind of spiritual structure into their lives. Your therapist can help decide what is right for you. I hope all of this makes sense.
