You make a great point. The overall growth in any ‘spiritual’ journey is for development of the id. A decent definition can be found here from this link: https://www.britannica.com/science/id-psychology
This results in a chain effect once the brain has developed fully and natural attractions are eventually explored, i.e sex, love money and any thing instinctual. That is if the person becomes aware of their own habitual nature and thus decides to understand these in more depth.
As well as, taking into consideration if they’re willing to reform their own habits from up-bringing, if they can get past the implanted moral obligations and feelings of guilt; maybe some reassurance could help those needing it, that it’s ok to question, question everything. Like you said, ‘not all sparkles and zombies’ lol
