“Showing up and keeping going counts!” Whenever I see spiritual l truth I almost feel lightheaded- and of course, being an addict, I love the feeling, so thank you for sharing the truth,
I have now formed a hypothesis and made an experiment to see if it could help my procrastination recovery and am logging the results in my procrastinator log. My experiment : 1.Dump all the garbage going on in my head that is dragging me down emotionally and weighing me down physically 2. Record intentions/completions/focus/function. . Kind of like defragmenting my computer.
I have had the good fortune of finding a 12 step loop where it is appropriate and safe to do this (write all the crazy thoughts in my head) and the good fortune to have the willingness and time to do this. So far, I see an improvement- time will tell,
From the AA Big Book
:Changes and new conditions are the inevitable result of living life, on
life's terms. (pg 85). The idea that what is now known is enough to
deal with any new situation is an egotistically attractive but
"erroneous false belief in personal omniscience". That "all knowing"
quality generally gets reserved for an idea of "God". (pg 55). Old ideas
may not always apply to new and different conditions. (pg 58). The
desire to enlarge awareness of "the Great Reality" (i.e.: "God" - pg 55)
is a personal desire for more "spiritual growth". (pg 60).
New ideas are an essential ingredient in making intelligent choices
under changing conditions. Unintelligent emotional decisions can be
self-destructive. "Spiritual progress" requires an intelligently and
realistically enlarged awareness of improved results, on life's
terms. (see pgs 14-15, 35, 60 & Step 11).
With the increased power of more new knowledge comes increased freedom
Thanks for letting me share.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory , for ever and ever!
