There is a solution to all of our problems. I was 18 years into my problem before I found the solution & there’s a reason it took that long. I didn’t want it… & therefore, I wasn’t seeking it. I didn’t want to stop drinking & drugging because when I stopped, the depression & anxiety came back. Once I got to the point where I felt like I couldn’t live with, or without drugs and or alcohol… that’s when things got really bad & I had no choice but to seek an alternative solution. Some methods temporarily suppress the symptoms of our problems, but there is always one method that offers some permanent relief. The goal for today: seek, find & follow the REAL solution… & live free! Have a great day everybody!
I recently had a conversation with a friend that was struggling with the fear of being judged by others. As our talk swirled around, trying to figure out where this fear came from, he realized that he was passing negative judgement on others, so he naturally assumed that others were doing the same to him. So his fear of being judged, came from his own unfair judgement of others. That means, if we stop judging others… we can stop being afraid of being judged ourselves. The goal for today: stop doing things I don’t want done to me! Have a great day everybody!
Anxiety is fear of what might happen in the future. I frequently talk about the destructive nature of fear & anxiety is one of the worst types. The worst thing about this kind of fear is that it’s imaginary. Nothing has even happened yet… but I am already experiencing a level of stress equivalent to the worst case scenario. My imaginary fears are usually much worse than the actual consequences are. The goal for today: do my best to arm myself with facts… take some sort of decisive action… & begin to overcome anxiety! Have a great day everybody!
A friend asked if I could be a little more descriptive regarding what “fear” actually is. Fear is the root cause of ALL negative… so every negative, you have ever experienced, was caused by some form of fear. Here are some of the alternate names that fear goes by: Anxiety = “fear” of what might happen in the future. Insecurity = “fear” that I am not safe. Jealousy & Envy = “fear” that you are better than me. Dishonesty = “fear” that telling the truth will turn out bad for me. Selfishness = “fear” that I won’t get what I want. Resentment = “fear” that you are causing my problems. The goal for today: know that if you have a problem… you have a fear! Have a great day everybody!
Here is a list of things that are guaranteed to NOT solve problems. Fear & worry never solve problems! Dishonesty & deceit never solve problems! Selfishness & self-centeredness never solve problems! Anger & resentment never solve problems! These incredibly unhealthy negative things, might frustrate us enough to turn & seek the Right way… but in & of themselves, solve nothing! The goal for today: practice Purity, Honesty, Selflessness & Love & actually solve some problems! Have a great day everybody!
“What you think upon grows” ~Emmet Fox. For some reason I refused to believe that it could be that simple. If I think about misery, depression & unhappiness… that’s what I get. If I think about peace, contentment & happiness… that’s what I get. So the next time someone or something is troubling you… think about something else. I know you are thinking “easier said than done”… but Right thinking is actually a hell of a lot easier! The goal for today: think Right, feel Right, act Right… in that order! Have a great day everybody!
A friend said it is scientifically proven that people are happier when the sun is shining. Well, I’m here to personally guarantee you that you can be happy regardless of the weather. Happiness is a frame of mind… & the weather doesn’t happen inside of your head. This is the age old battle of trying to help people see & believe that NOTHING outside of them can directly affect what they think & feel on the inside. The goal for today: ignore bullshit science that fills us full of misinformation… & dance in the rain! Have a great day everybody!
