#21 Earn your Serenity
You have to earn your serenity. It would seem that we can be as surrendered as we like and willing to accept our consequences, this doesn’t exempt us from the stress and anxiety though. The real deal is learning to live with our consequences and that is no easy task. Doesn’t matter who you are, you are going to face challenges that take you to your darkest fears, it seems unavoidable.
When talking about spiritual solutions, what I refer to is our spirit. How is your spirit? What about the times you feel worn down with the weight of the challenges you have to bear and bear them you must? The ultimate goal is freedom and sometimes the only freedom available to us is acceptance.
This is a tough subject and might leave you with questions, drop me a mail if you wish.
This podcast was recorded as a series of lectures given to people in 12 step addiction recovery treatment. The purpose of these talks was to teach and motivate individuals to search for their own spiritual solution to their addiction.
