Daily Application June 2, 2010 How Shall This Pass, Too?

How shall this pass, too?

What is the application of “this too shall pass?’  We’re looking for the one reason why it is the way it is.

I am the way I am for a multitude of reasons.  The magnitude of countless moments counteracted with countless principles.  When I comply my heart’s not in it… That’s been my whole life.

I’ve got to stop validating my opinion by a group of people not in the room. What am I really hanging onto other than the misery I brought here?  You can’t come from injury to get a solution…

    This too will always pass if i remember to push the pause button. My compliance is always and instant knee jerk reaction. Every default sparks right up unless I remember that it’s ok to breath, count to 10, pause as long as I need to, even if I have to say “Let’s discuss this tomorrow”. When I actually follow that advice things do pass in a more peaceful and cohesive way. It feels as though when I pause I open the door for my Higher Power to jump in and stand with me. From that pause on I can feel guided through a peaceful passage.

    I have had a question that’s been nagging me for some time. Your topic has made me expose another layer of it. I have found that I still find myself complying automatically to people almost without hesitation. Then many times I realize that it was not at all what I wanted to do. Years of reacting to others expectations still has an invisble grip on me. I will now ask my Higher Power to remove this warped instinct this deep seeded need for validation that still haunts me now and then. Now I feel I know what to pray for more clearly.
    Thank you for stirring my little grey cells a little bit more. Miss you all and can’t wait to visit soon. ~love from Oregon

      I relate to the need for validation and approval from others. My whole life I asked everyone else how I was doing, feeling, looking. I tried to be perfect: have a “perfect” mind, body, face, clothes, etc. I believed that if I could look ok, than I was ok. I was trapped in a false and empty place. I couldn’t connect with my Higher Power, Self, or feel my own soul. I felt worthless and confused. I worshipped substances that would alter my mind because I was so afraid to face anything real. Real, historically, hurt me.

      The first level of relief I found from this “hopeless state of mind and body” was when I put the drink down. As I worked on having a Conscious Contact, I began to value less of what “you” thought of me and more of what my Higher Power thought and wanted for me. It was the first time I ever conceded that perhaps I was the cause of my own misery. Who knew?
      Today I pray and ask my HP what I can do today to do his will for me. The always leads me to service, prayer & meditation.
      Being human and recovering (meaning it is an ongoing process, I still fall into misery and discomfort at times. But today since I have some positive experience in going to the solution instead of staying in the problem, I instinctively know that “this too shall pass.” But it is not going to pass unless I get into action and not wallow in the negativity. I am a good wallower. That was very hard for me to change my default mode. I am still learning; will always be learning.
      Thank you HP for loving me and teaching to accept and love myself.
      Looking forward to the meeting Weds.
