Change The World

I talk about helping others as if it is the cure to all of our other problems… & that’s because it is. When I’m helping others… I can’t be hurting anyone, including myself. When I’m helping others… I can’t end up alone. When I’m helping others… it makes them want to help me. If we could honestly & genuinely start looking out for each other, rather than just looking out for ourselves… the world would instantly become a better place. The goal for today: start changing the world by simply having a genuine concern for the welfare of others! Have a great day everybody!

Solution… Or Distraction?

Most people have no idea why they act the way they do. If people knew why they abused drugs, they wouldn’t do it anymore. If people knew why they cheated on their significant others, they wouldn’t do it anymore. If people knew why they gambled all their money away, they wouldn’t do it anymore. We partake in destructive behaviors in an attempt to distract ourselves from the fact that we’re full of fear & unhappiness. If we fix our fear & unhappiness… we wouldn’t need to be distracted. The goal for today: seek, find & follow the Solution, rather than the distraction! Have a great day everybody!

Addiction

I struggled with addiction for nearly 20 years… I’ve been clean & sober for 13… & here’s what I’ve learned. 1) You can’t solve a problem if you don’t know what caused it… & most of the world simply does not know. 2) Fear is the true underlying cause of addiction… not just for me, but every addict on the planet. 3) A full blown personality change is the ONLY solution. 4) That means instead of being afraid, dishonest, selfish & resentful… I must learn to be Pure, Honest, Selfless & Loving. The goal for today: know that there is only 1 true cause of addiction & therefore, there can be only 1 true solution to addiction. The real solution won’t just keep you alive… it will set you free, generate happiness & restore some desperately needed peace of mind! Have a great day everybody!

The Remedy

The solving of any & all problems goes kinda like this:
1) Admit that “I” am the problem
2) Admit that God is the solution
3) Put that solution into practice
4) Uncover my own past mistakes
5) Admit those mistakes to others
6) Become willing to let them go
7) Ask God to take them all away
8) Become willing to make it right
9) Go out and repair the damage
10) Watch out for new mistakes
11) Start & finish my day with God
12) Help everyone I possibly can
The goal for today: fully understand and put the effort into living by this formula! Have a great day everybody!

Straight To The Solution

“The shortest distance between two points is a straight line” ~Archimedes. This Principle doesn’t only apply to math, it also applies to life in general. For example: I can list all of my problems… such as co-dependency, relationship troubles, anxiety, drug addiction, alcoholism, depression, people pleasing, etc. etc. Or… I can take the straight line & acknowledge that fear is the underlying cause of ALL of my problems. The goal for today: stop taking the long way around… & let’s get straight to the solution! 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!

Believe

The only solution is the one that you believe in & if you don’t believe there is a solution… then there isn’t one. 

Belief is a powerful thing! 

Far more powerful than most of us can imagine. 

If I believe that there is no way out of a situation… then there’s not. 

I have convinced myself of some pretty crazy shit over the years, but I can finally see the Truth… there is always a solution. 

The goal for today: believe… & refuse to accept anything less than Happiness, Freedom & Peace! 

Have a great day everybody!
