Although it is mass produced, mass promoted, legal, and ingested by a multitude of people all over the world, most people don’t ever consider or understand the spiritual consequences of drinking alcohol. The word “Alcohol” comes from the Arabic “al-kuhl” which means “BODY EATING SPIRIT”, and gives root origins to the English term for “ghoul”. In Middle Eastern folklore, a “ghoul” is an evil demon thought to eat human bodies, either as stolen corpses or as children. In this interview/podcast with Zharah Sita, author of the article "The Spiritual Consequences of Alcohol Consumption", we explore this fascinating and essential discussion around the use of alcohol in society and it's consequences for our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. We also talk about the consequences of alcohol consumption for society and our planet, and the ravage alcohol does to traditional and tribal communities. Listen to the podcast here or below.
