A great amount of readers have noted to me that this blog is not realistic. First, I do not believe in realistic – realistic is another word for negative. The word “impossible” does not exist in dictionary of Living Infinitely. Purposefully I speak only of ideals. The subconscious mind takes these ideals and begins to shape your reality around them without questioning reason or “realism”, rather taking natural laws and creating life out of them. Therefore, readers should be able to come here and read an about maximizing their life without having any negative thoughts penetrating into their subconscious. However, in truly maximizing our lives it is sometimes necessary to understand the cause of our predicaments. A friend pointed out to me in the example of “The Farmer” that many individuals desire to “cut the root” but do not realize that the root is even there! The following takes one example of how even the most devastating of addictions can be conquered by omnipotent power.
Although different opinions exist, according to Dr. Leshner Summeral of the Dana Foundation generally defines addiction as: a disease, a state of psychological or physiological dependence or devotion to something manifesting as a condition in which medically significant symptoms liable to have a damaging effect are present. People can become addicted to all kinds of damaging addiction including but not limited to drugs, tobacco, alcohol, all kinds of sexual issues, work, computers, shopping, self infliction, food, and many more. The addiction can be so powerful that it completely controls a person’s actions. The individual becomes a slave to their addiction losing all will power. The brain and the body behave like robots completely subject to the seemingly impossible dependency. The reality for many with addictions is complete bondage.
There are a few realities that must settle into the mind before healing can take place. When it does the result is nothing short of astonishing! Individuals that are able to overcome the power of an addiction are imbued with a super strength enabling them to take on other obstacles in life with great ease. These individuals have conquered some of the most devastating physiological and psychological demons ever faced by humanity. The reward is WORTH more gold! I have seen enormous power coming from these individuals scarcely realized in others. The following are proven methods that will inevitably bring about results. With a powerful addiction, healing can take time. More often than not healing is experienced in periods. Most individuals will gradually feel the grip of their addiction weaken more and more and eventually completely disappear.
1. Desire to Change. Without the desire for a different way of life free of the addiction change is unfeasible. The desire for change is often brought about by love (for other people or from others). Indifference will inevitably result in failure.
2. Awareness of the True Self: The true self in you is the one that desires the change. The false sense of self is controlled by the addiction. When you say, “I need to change myself” there automatically implies two parties. The true self is the “I” behind thinking, actions, and even the addiction; it is the director and decision maker. The false self is the “robot: controlled by the addiction. The more you identify yourself - with the True Self – the self that is One with the Infinite – the less you will identify with the addiction and remain subject to it.
3. The Transformation of Desire: The mind of an addict is very strong willed. The subconscious mind is so programmed to obtain the necessary stimulus it will stop at nothing in its path. The transformation of this desire into a healthy desire that conforms with the original desire to change will imbue the new activity with great strength. The process of transforming the mind can be done with things like music, physical exercise, a hobby, business, and many other constructive rather than destructive habits.
My wish is that this post will give you the motivation to KNOW - beyond the shadow of a doubt - that the life you want to live can be obtained by ANYBODY.
