Transformation

Transformation is about awareness!

Transformation is initially about awareness. Transformation is about becoming aware of the reality of our existence and power, aware that we are completely responsible for our experiences and life, that what we do, say and think matters and that we have the power and tools to create a life where we are authentically happy. Transformation is ultimately about waking up and becoming present to who we really are in life.

We believe that we are responsible for our existence or we do not. We believe that we are responsible for all of our experiences or we do not. We believe that how life is appearing to us is our responsibility and our creation or we do not. I believe that we are completely responsible for our life. I believe that we are not victims, never have been and never will be. Attempting to be a victim is our attempt to deny our responsibility for our life.

We believe that our thoughts, words and actions are important and powerful or we do not. We believe that our thoughts, words and actions are the tools that we use to create our experiences and life or we do not. We believe that our thoughts, words and actions are the primary tools that we use to respect, approve, accept and love ourselves or we do not. I believe that what we think, what we say and do is how we go about loving and honoring ourselves.

Unfortunately, the tendency of many addicts and alcoholics is to reject their responsibility in life and to believe that they are the effect of life. The tendency of many addicts and alcoholics is to believe that they are victims of life. The tendency of many addicts and alcoholics is to believe that they are powerless not only in reference to substances but to life in general. The tendency of many addicts and alcoholics is to believe that what they think, say and do is not connected to their experiences in life or to their self esteem.

Being open mind and willing to consider a new way of thinking is so very important. Being completely responsible for our life is the first lesson to learn as we awaken to our power. Accepting and acknowledging our responsibility for all that that we experience in life is the first step that we have to take on our road to transformation. Knowing that what we think, say and do matters greatly and that they are the tools of our transformation is the second step.
