Are you willing to take a look at that? Take a look at what? Take a look at the fact that you may have a chocolate addiction, a coffee addiction, an addiction to junk food, TV, alcohol, training, meds or any other numbing agent that you seem to have an attachment to, and can't seem to let go of? We learn, over time that there are two possible behaviors at any given moment - an intention to honor ourselves or an intention to control. An intention to love ourselves, or an intention to protect ourselves from a pain or emptiness with our controlling behaviors, thus not honoring but abandoning ourselves. Let's remember to remember - we have a choice - free will. When we choose to learn, we are at one with why we are here, expanding, connected to our highest best self, our core self, our Divine self. But when we chose to control, we shut off access to the truth - our mind closes and reprograms, recycles what we already know, past behaviors, recreating old ways, hurts, and poor results. The challenge is we have practiced, and mastered avoidance, abandonment, numbing with the drive-through, our best friend al-cohol, or new friends "hershey or reece's" when we feel those feelings of anxiety coming up, or when we feel empty, thus we continue to stay attached, getting poor results. We must understand that we cannot stop any addiction, any attachment until we feel worthy, willing, ready, and able to look-at and FEEL the feelings under the attachments - and take responsibility for them. When we decide that we are worthy and willing to feel our feelings under those attachments, underneath the addictions, and take responsibility for them, it will be this worthiness, this willingness that opens our heart to be "open to learn" and take us on a higher path of awareness and choice. Where the possibilities are Infinite. Gary
