responsibility

Our responsibility, choice and power!

As long as an addict or alcoholic continues to think certain thoughts and hold on to specific beliefs recovery will elude them and they will most assuredly and eventually relapse. As long as addicts and alcoholics continue to think and belief that they are not responsible for their addiction, that they did not choose their addiction to drugs and alcohol and that they are powerless with respect to their addiction they will not transform their life. They will remain a victim in and to life.

When we assume complete responsibility for our addiction to drugs and alcohol we learn how we actually created and even choose our self destructive way of being. When we assume full responsibility for our addiction to drugs and alcohol we also learn about our power and how we can change and transform our life and end our addiction forever. When we learn about who we really are, we learn about the divine tools that we possess that will transform our life, our responsibility, choice and power.

Some addicts and alcoholics will gain the knowledge and wisdom necessary to change and transform their life. They will learn the power and even magic of their thinking and beliefs and how they can use these powerful tools to alter the trajectory of their life and transform. Others will not learn and will continue to hold on thoughts and beliefs that devalue them, that will continue to support the belief that they are not good enough. Life for these individuals will continue to be the same, creating possibilities such as institutions, jail or death.

Responsibility gives access to my Source, to God!

It is only when I accept and acknowledge my full and complete responsibility for all of what I experience and my life as it is appearing that I create the possibility of getting connected to my Source, to Spirit, my Higher Power, to God. When I accept my responsibility for creating my experiences I know that it is my thoughts that matter, that they are the real cause of my experiences.

When I choose the path of transforming my negative beliefs about myself I also create the possibility of accepting and approving of myself, of loving myself for who I am and who I am not not. This experience is love, the same Love that is my Source, Spirit, Higher Power, God. When I authentically come to love myself I will experience the Love that is my Source, Spirit, Higher Power, God.

Responsibility for Everything and Anything!

When I accept full and complete responsibility for everything in my life I know that I am the cause in the matter, of my entire life. From this knowledge, I know that what I think, say and do is causing my life to appear as my experiences.

When I authentically accept responsibility for everything in my life I also gain the power to transform anything in my life. I know that I am fully and completely responsible for what I have created and also for the powerful possibilities that I can create in my life.

While I understand the influence of my behavior and actions, I also grasp the divine nature of my thoughts and the power of what I say with my word. What I speak into existence and the thoughts that I create are powerfully sourcing and manifesting as my experiences.

Importance of Human Consciousness in the Recovery from Drugs and Alcohol

If we promote the idea that drug and alcohol addiction is caused by physical factors, by the brain, we then run the risk of negating the conversation about human consciousness having anything to do with a solution to the problem.

When we promote the idea that drug and alcohol addiction is primarily, if not exclusively, a problem caused by the brain, we also run the risk of stripping the addict and alcoholic of any sense of responsibility for their addiction.

With the lack of responsibility for their problem, the addict and alcoholic will have a tendency to not be motivated to do much to change their life, possibly feeling helpless to even try. With the lack of responsibility for their problem, the addict and alcoholic may even have another excuse to continue to use.

It is only by believing that human consciousness plays an important if not exclusive role in the development of drug and alcohol addiction will we be able to restore personal responsibility for the disorder and also create real motivation to take action to change the trajectory of their current life. With this sense of motivation there will be the experience of hope.
