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.

I choose to believe that I am responsible!

We do have free will to believe what we want to believe. I can believe that I am responsible for all of my experiences or I can choose to believe that I am not responsible, that I am a victim to other people, places and things. Both are a choice that I can make.

If I continue to believe that I am the effect of life, that I am a poor victim, I will also believe that I do not really matter, that what matters is what happens to me. If I believe that I am not important, I will be unable to change my life. I will have no power to change my situation in life.

However, if I choose to believe that I am truly responsible, I begin to acquire the power to transform. If I choose to believe that I am responsible for my all of my experiences and life I will come to know that my life is about my thoughts and that my thoughts can be changed.

If I choose to believe that I am responsible and that I have the power to transform my experiences by changing my thoughts and beliefs, especially those about myself, I will consciously assume my power and become free to create and source the life that I want.

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.

The First Step in Recovery and Transformation

The belief that the real cause of drug and alcohol addiction is something other than our thinking and thought process, especially the thoughts that we have about ourselves, about our value and worth as a human being, is very pervasive in our society. The current tendency is to believe that addiction is about the human brain, about its abnormal nature. It is believed further that addicts and alcoholics have a disease.

We offer another possibility. I believe that the real cause of drug and alcohol addiction is to be found in human consciousness, in our thought process. I believe that addicts and alcoholics have a negative self image, believing that they are not good enough, especially when compared to others. This negative self image always causes one to experience a lack of self love, to have poor self esteem.

The first reaction of many individuals suffering from substance abuse issues is to reject the idea that drug and alcohol addiction is about having poor self esteem. The essential reason for this denial is that most addicts and alcoholics have difficulty facing the man or woman in the mirror and assuming responsibility for their way of being. The tendency is to blame other people, places and things for their current condition.

I have found that the ability of an individual to transform his life is determined by the acceptance of one initial belief, of believing that he is completely responsible for all of his experiences and life. When a person acknowledges and accepts that he is the cause of his current situation in life, then and only then, will he be able to work on transforming the true cause of his addiction to drugs and alcohol, his negative self image and the resulting poor self esteem.

Our past is a story.

Our past is merely a story that we have created. It is our remembrance of events that did or did not happen.

Our past is not real. It is merely our representation of what we refer to as the events that did or did not happen.

The events that once happened are no longer in existence. All we have are our thoughts and beliefs about them.

We can change or transform our thoughts and beliefs about the past. That is our choice.
