Ep. 07 - The Fellowship of 3P & What is Addiction?
Updated: Sep 12
Group Discussion on What is Addiction & How do we get Past it ALONG with examining whether this meeting is Fellowship in 3P as compared to Fellowship in A.A.
Title: WHAT IS ADDICTION? FELLOWSHIP IN THE 3 PRINCIPLES COMMUNITY.
OUTLINE OF TOPICS DISCUSSED:
WHAT IS ADDICTION?
Innocent attempt at feeling better, whether it be via drugs, alcohol, sex, drugs, food, etc.
Chemical dependency that is unwanted
Misunderstanding how to cope with emotions, and the struggle we created in our own minds
What we do to get away from thoughts and feelings that we are in
To find our True Self, and the game we play
Being disconnected to our Spiritual Self and entrenched in our physical body
HINTS TO GET PAST ADDICTION
Being in the Now answers all questions, but we are not always in the Now
Seeing the neutrality of lightness and darkness
Comfortable with oneself as a human being
What we are saying in our ego minds is nonsense
We are already whole
We need patience. This saying fails, "Why don't I have it now." This saying succeeds, "It happens in its own time."
Energy is always there for our use, and we are always using it--rightly or wrongly
A true understanding of being spiritually awake for the first time in my life
Seeing the brightness and beauty of everyone
3P is about Being, rather than doing something. In 12 Steps it felt like I was trying to give away what I didn’t have
Answer lies in an Alive Feeling within. Living with an Alive Feeling is healing!!
I felt that I had to do something to get a spiritual awakening. I woke up that I was creating my own suffering
3P is pointing to something. Teaching in the Bible is pointing to something. Teachings in the Koran—the same. We want to have OUR OWN experience
This webinar/podcast meeting is like Fellowship. It is a bridge between ME & 3P, and that we are OK & completely whole. It is a level of support when we get a little “wonky”. This group provides substance for levels of wisdom and spirituality
We can use it to seek out people who have bettered their own happy life. We do not want to make our Group or Community become our Higher Power or our Answer. That does not work!!
The Answer is always there
LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL
