Regret

🔥 Getting Over Regret

My only regret in my years of sobriety is allowing my ego to dictate the terms of my perspective on life.

The ego has been one of the most self destructive manifestations of this disease I have ever experienced.

Symptoms of the ego are predictable and insipid and are the killer of spiritual growth.

A few Symptoms of the ego are as follows:

Being continuously fearful of what other people think of you…
Always having to be right…
Judgement of others and yourself…
Being quick to point out others defects of character without realizing your own…
The need to control without being aware of it…
Looking to validate and promote your own cause to others…
Existing with a gaurded and defended perspective on life…
Living in a continuous fearful state of “all is not well” …

Imagine living life without the fear of what other people think if you? The word freedom comes to mind…

Imagine feeling good about yourself when you discover how wrong you have been about so many issues…

The spiritual program of action is probably the most effective experience in ego deflation…

Here’s the thing…

You have to work at it every day…

There is no compromise here, for the ego is tenacious beyond belief and can reemerge within minutes…

Humility is not our God given right, it has to be earned to be granted…

When it comes to the ego, daily discipline to the spiritual way of life = freedom from the bondage of self.

There is no other way around it I can assure you.

Your ego will cost you dearly.

Paul
