Question: What is the main reason for doing things against one’s spiritual progress ?
Answer: The main reason of doing things against once spiritual progress is desire and attachment / attraction for enjoyment and pleasure. Desire and Attachment / attraction for enjoyments is the greatest obstacle in Self / God Realization. When there is intense desire for enjoyment of pleasures, then giving it up appears to be very difficult, rather impossible. A spiritual aspirant is totally independent in giving up desire and attachment to enjoyment of pleasures.
He can give this desire and attachment up through thought, inquiry and reflection. By thinking / inquirying, he can come to the understanding that he wants happiness that has no shortage or limitation, and that never ends.

“Yam labdhvaa chaaparam laabham manyate naadhikam tatah;
yaasminnisthato na dukhen gurnaapi vichaalyate
tam vidhyaadukhsam yog viyogam yogasanjitam.” (Gita 6:22-23)

“Having gained which state, he does not reckon any other gain greater than that, and wherein established, he is not shaken even by the greatest affliction. This separation from the assumed union with pain, is called Yoga.”

Human beings are blessed with immense ability to think, reflect and discriminate between truth and untruth. If he chooses to not think, then it is his mistake and error. It is his lack of prudence and attention to what is important.

It is a rule that through the enjoyment of pleasures, the object enjoyed is destroyed and at the same time it leads to the enjoyer’s downfall and decline. Just like with passion and desire when one indulges in wealth and material goods then that money is destroyed (used up) and one falls down. When importance of wealth, desire, greed, attachment, inertness, slavery etc. comes in him, then it leads to his downfall. When one indulges in enjoyment of food and eating, not only is food consumed and destroyed, but one takes a fall. The increased desire for enjoying foods and increased attachment to food is a sure downfall.
