Give me Back Myself, But, Who Am I?- (Updated) ~By CordieB

Everyone needs something

No matter who we are or how we think

No one can live without something . . .

Be it love, bread, air or water to drink.

Everyone’s a slave to something

But the choice is very clear

We can choose to what and whom we lend Ourselves …

So often in life, our choices root from fear;

For everthing we choose to let go

Another choice is sure to follow;

Jesus said, Blessed is the poor in spirit,

He knew that it is a blessing to truly be worryless; 

To know that our Creator provides all of it…

He knew to have an unburdened spirit is the key to life beyond

The fallacies and mailadies, that plague us for so long.

To not worry about not having enough or having too much;

To truly be one with God and one’s-self is –To Be– Free– in-touch;

For, unless we can let go all cares, ambitions, hatred, external comforts, or anything . . .

We are merely partly slaves to ourselves and partly slaves to something. . .

What is it that you will be a slave to? . . .

That is the gift of Free Will God has given you . . .

So you feel someone or something has stolen the gleams

of Life from your eyes and invaded your dreams?

Only God can truely erase your true nature . . .

Which was within you from the begining; no need to mature. . .

Your Creator has given you paramount choices; Free Will.  

But that’s only a fraction of God’s wonderment, still.

A curse if used in evil,  A blessing if used to inspire. . .

But if regaining your true self is truly your desire,

To regain, reveal, and be your real true self,

You must be willing to let go of every negative, unloving else.

Release imbedded pride, judgements, illusions, lies, anger, fears, hatred, prejudice and preconception

For God’s love is your Alpha, Omega, Beginning and End, your true self, your Heaven

 ~Good Friday, Good Saturday, and Blessing for Easter to everyone.  It is through the teachings and love of Jesus Christ that I am able to realize the God (Goodness) within myself and the goodness in everyone of God’s creations; and know that our Creator provides all; Created all; and we originated in Him. 

Forgiveness

Forgiveness is not the apology of  evil, nor the justification of mistreatment and offense.  It is the evocation, the clamor of the victim to God saying : Oh Lord take from me any poison that is in my heart, since this is like the smoke that hurts and blinds my vision.

Life must not coexist with infinite hate, on the contrary, it must return to Peace.  And when there has been affliction, physical and moral harm, then forgiveness is a miracle, which means the direct intervention of the Presence  of God.

We all make mistakes and the human being goes wrong in many ways but when there is misuse of power, abandonment, or misery, then this does not go away in a moment and traces stay. Forgiveness has the wonderful aptitude to heal these deep wounds.

To forgive is really self transformation, it is like emerging of darkness, of death. Nothing can be compared to Forgiveness. It is the conciliation of heaven and earth, the annulment of evil, of sin, of pain, of conflict and even of death. The person who forgives, discovers in his heart that God exists since  forgiveness is the understanding that allows us to receive the grace, which means, the Presence of God in the whole plenitude of the inner life.

Prescription Drug Overdose Deaths Double in Five Years

“Last week I probably slept an average of two hours a night,” Ledger told The New York Times (in November). “I couldn’t stop thinking. My body was exhausted, and my mind was still going.” He said he took two Ambien pills, which only worked for an hour. 

The big drug addiction problem facing America, according to  statistics, lies not in the crack houses and shooting galleries of the inner cities, but in the doctor’s offices to which millions of Americans go in search of relief for their emotional and psychological pain.

People use prescription drugs to relieve various emotional problems, such as anger, stress, anxiety, boredom or depression. Others take these drugs to boost their self-confidence.  People may also use drugs to help them forget about or cope with traumatic life events or situations or to relieve the symptoms of severe psychiatric illness. 

According to the Center’s for Disease Control, poisoning from prescription drugs has risen to become the second-largest cause of unintentional deaths in the United States, (behind only automobile accidents) .

Most people take medicines only for the reasons their doctors prescribe them. But an estimated 20 percent of people in the United States have used prescription drugs for nonmedical reasons.  Some people take more than what is prescribed to get “high.”   Others combine the drugs to get an even more euphoric effect.  All of these usages lead to prescription drug abuse. 

Potential Warning Signs

  • Feeling the need to cut down on your use of prescription drugs?
  • Feeling annoyed by remarks your friends or loved ones make about your use of prescription drugs?
  • Feeling guilty or remorseful about your use of prescription drugs?
  • Using prescription drugs as a way to “get going” or to “calm down?”

Answering yes to one or more of these questions could indicate there is a problem.

Drug abuse and all self-abuse is caused by intense fear and self-centeredness. The solution is usually much simpler than therapeutic methods.   In most instances, the solution to fear and selfishness are faith and service to others.  Living a life based on these two basic principles will relieve addiction and help one to achieve permanent sobriety, and a healthy, happy life.
