There is one thing that bothers me about this whole thing. I thought we are not this mind or this body, and that we are only the Purusha (or Atman or God or Source...) Then why do we have to claim that we are alcoholics and continue to claim that we are for the rest of our lives even after we have given our lives over to God? This I wrestle with!
2013 has brought me magnificent changes in my body, mind and spirit. I've continued to work the Steps in Alcoholics Anonymous and now Al-Anon as well. I surf and write and play and work... and I have fallen deeply in love in a way that I did not think was possible.
