The twelve-step epiphany
In our recovery, as we complete the steps, our minds start to calm down and understand the concept of peace and serenity. From birth, most of us are inundated with thoughts, stories, ideas and messages that are basically a cry for us to freak out, for us to worry or for us to be scared. Many of these messages are fuelled by fear with an intent to sway our opinion or get us to buy something. And it's like the message a lot of the media and the advertisers are sending to us is, "Unless you are perfectly, perfectly perfect, never have anything happen to you, are always happy, never emotional in a negative way, have the perfect body, perfect outfit and perfect relationship, then you need to buy something." And we get hypnotised, again and again, by the fears and insecurities of others. And how other people in our family and in the media think and feel affects us greatly.

Environment, coupled with the repeated thoughts of those around us, begins to shape and mould us. And there are many moments where we get moulded and don't even realise it. This is why it's so important to think for yourself, renew your mind and question your beliefs on a regular basis. Many of the thoughts we think are the insecure thoughts of others. Many of the thoughts we think are the fearful thoughts of the world that we allowed to be projected onto us and then become a part of who we are, because it is reinforced so much from the outside. And it can become so loud, so consistent and so normal, that we don't even know we are being hypnotised by the fearful and insecure thoughts of others. I think it was the great Timothy Leary who said, "Think for yourself and question authority." Not to be a righteous contrarian just because, but because we want to examine and understand the beliefs we have about the world. These fundamental beliefs determine our world view, which determines our actions, which determines our outcomes, which determine our life experience. We want to make it our goal to have a beginners mind, or to think like a child. That is to say, allow ourselves and those around us to think new thoughts and, as a result, be reborn as new people in our recovery.

When we allow ourselves this newness and allow this for others in our lives, we step into a realm of self-directed and self-approved choices to surrender our will to the will of our higher power, which makes certain things now possible to us that before seemed impossible.The promises of our program. When we are mindful of our minds, we get to live a new life in recovery. When we accept our worthiness as we are, we make a new experience available. When we no longer seek outside of ourselves to fill the void within ourselves, we take a step towards wholeness. This is not something that we do. This is something that we allow to come forward as a result of the program we follow. its who we are, naturally. You can set yourself free, naturally, when you realise that as you are, you are perfect, whole and complete. Nothing to be done except let that be and then act accordingly.The rest is just media programming.
