The Tough Topics

I want to help people with the really tough topics. I want to teach people how to properly cope with things like death, divorce & addiction. I want to teach people what is really written in the Bible, the U.S. Constitution & the big book of Alcoholics Anonymous. I want to properly help people through their depression, anxiety & anger. These topics are all extremely difficult to openly talk about… we are all so insanely sensitive on these issues. When happiness was gone from life, I had to stop being so sensitive & stubborn about these matters. The goal for today: open your heart & your mind… because that is the only way to bring about the positive changes you are really looking for! Have a great day everybody!

Permanent

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!

Do You?

Do you REALLY want to know the Truth? I didn’t. I ran from it for years, trying desperately to escape the idea that I was responsible for all of my problems & that changing myself was the only real solution. I got comfortable with blaming others, blaming genetics, blaming the president… even blaming God if need be. I was hell bent on proving that my misery was outside of my control & there was nothing I could do about it. Now I can see that that was all a lie. The goal for today: know that the Truth is that every one of us is free to be exactly as happy, or miserable as we choose to be! Have a great day everybody!

The Source

What do you think about more: giving love, or getting love… giving friendship, or getting friendship… giving respect, or getting respect? If your true answer is “getting”… then we just found the source of your misery & depression. If your true answer is giving… then we just found the source of your peace & happiness. We all flip flop back & forth between the two, but when “giving” becomes the more predominant thought… happiness becomes the more predominant emotion. The goal for today: stay focused on giving… & stay happy! Have a great day everybody!

Judgement

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!

Give

If you are feeling a little down (or perhaps a lot down) during this holiday season… I have a suggestion. I suggest altruism; the unselfish concern for the welfare of others is a guaranteed solution to the holiday blues. You see, we get down because we are thinking too much about ourselves… what we are losing or not getting & that breeds depression. If I go out of my way to make sure that the holidays are as happy as possible for others… I’m guaranteed to avoid holiday depression. The goal for today: in the season of giving… GIVE! Have a great day everybody!

Things That Never Work

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!
