How to Get Self Esteem & Self Acceptance (While Being Yourself)

If your ‘real personality’ is not worthy of being accepted by the one who owns it, how in the name of Isis can you expect others to see it, much less accept it into the state where you feel okay about yourself? Self esteem is a side effect of self acceptance.

Never Explain Anything

Never explain anything? Never explain ourselves? Words are not Truth but can point to truth or aspects of truth. Does this mean we should never explain ourselves?

How does an HSP get sober?

In retrospect, it is very clear my Spirit – in seeking its natural state – was seeking to cast off all kinds of chemical and emotional dependencies. All it took was my willingness to let my body/mind/ego scream its death song. Piece of cake?

Addicted to Sugar – How Sugar Addiction Affected Me and How I Stopped

Being a newly recovering alcoholic, I had no idea my brain was treating my sugar addiction as its new alcoholism. Lethargy, sadness, anger, naps after lunch, with nothing to ‘seemingly’ provoke my depressed mental state; It still took many months to discover that my eating was more disordered than I originally thought.

Zen Story – Hakuin says “Is that so?”

Non-Duality includes inviting everything that comes our way into our world and why not? With or without my participation, acceptance, openness or detachment – in this case, to other peoples’ opinions or perceptions – reality will happen.

Accepting Yourself Despite What Others Think

Accepting yourself, who you are and where you are is easier than you might think. Despite years of others telling you you are not good enough or listening to your internal dialogue berate and belittle yourself, it’s only a matter of a little understanding to turn your mind into a place you love to live.

Help an Alcoholic Stop Drinking

I will not offer suggestions or advice or any other thing that I did not do or that did not work for me to first, get sober and then next, get sane. Everything I share played a part in turning this former self-loathing, helpless, daily drinking and suicide-attempting alcoholic life into a joyous, happy, whole, serene, and sober existence.

Codependent on Codependency (or Codie People)

Normally a helpful characteristic – desiring to show that there is freedom available for those who suffer from codependency – it can morph into crazyland and I suffer. This is my story with a whole lot of irony. And my solutions.

Manifesting into Physical Existence

Manifesting into Physical Existence

Metaphysical principles are not new. The Secret is not the first. In my opinion, it is not the best or the most complete. The book by Emmet Fox entitled Sermon on the Mount is the best and most complete for me because it takes Gnostic principles and thoroughly explains the manifesting magic based on the historical Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount.

Not Everyone Should Like Me

Should everyone like me? What planet started this vicious rumor? Not everyone is going to like me. I’ll show you why I embrace and welcome not everyone liking me and if this can help you accept a similar reality, I would love that.

“Later, the daughter would confirm the beating, except that her mother was also yelling “Whore” and “stupid slut” and “fucking bitch” as she was doing it.” Engaging in ‘Risky Sexual Behavior’ might be risky. But who has the target on the back of the one engaging in it? Watch this video.
