Re-Think That

Re-Think That

I’m understanding more deeply that my entire reality is based on how my mind construes, decodes, and deciphers my experiences. Particularly with my sobriety. I love to focus on the fun, happiness, and freedom I now have because alcohol is no longer required as part of the equation. Before, I could not fathom how I could have any fun without it; now I cannot fathom having any fun with it.

Cooperation, Collaboration, Not Competition

I can tell I’m making progress. (Progress not perfection is the name of the game.) I don’t compare myself so harshly to others anymore. At least I don’t automatically default to a “less than” mode from a “less than” mode. The old me quickly folded in the face of competition, even when no one was competing with me. I was quick to defer, shrink back, not put up a fight – even when no one was fighting with me.

Live for Today

Cause and effect is what Ernest Holmes talks about as the basis of New Thought philosophy – what I think, feel, and do today (cause) will link me to what I experience in the moments and years to come. (effect) Less focus on what I will experience in the mystery of the afterlife… more focus on the heaven and hell that I will create right here on earth, based on what I produce for myself by my thoughts, feelings, and actions.
