Self Bondage

đź’ĄSelf Bondage

Some of you probably think you chose to be in recovery…

None of us chose to he here…

We all made a decision in the 3rd step…

We offered ourselves to God to do as he will…

God brought us together.

The greatest noose around your neck and mine is what you think you know about what’s going to happen next and your attachment to that driven by your current belief systems…

The truth is none of us know what is going to happen next on any given day at any given time…

If I lose sight of this then my preconceived ideas about what is going to happen will rule my life instead of my reality ruling my life…

This is living in a state of delusion to what our reality is.

The disciplines of Steps 10 and 11 teach us to approach everything with a beginner’s mind…

Everything!

Yes even those things you are delusioned into believing you have control over.

It is impossible to stay plugged into your Step 3 decision to turn your will and your life over to the care of God unless you have a beginner’s mind…impossible!

How current is your Step 3 experience?

Turning your preconceived ideas about what is going to happen next over to the care of God causes a revolutionary internal shift towards a beginner’s mind where the ego cannot exist.

Do you practice this every day in all your affairs?…

Or do you still suffer from the delusion that your are in control of your life?

Share this with someone who may need to hear this.
