About Me

My photo
I have recovered from the disease of Alcoholism. I believe there is only one person really,.. everybody. And that peace of mind is everything. -So treat your neighbor as you would treat yourself, because your neighbor IS yourself. I think most of recovery is what I would call common sense, but that learning to be ordinary is a true gift very few people acquire. My ambition is to accept everything unflinchingly, with compassion, and therefore be intrinsically comfortable in my own skin, no matter what. I am comfortable being uncomfortable and am willing to go to any lengths to improve my life. I believe the Big Book was divinely inspired, and is extraordinarily powerful. Unfortunately AA's best kept secret a lot of the time. (In my opinion). I just try to do what works, no matter what it is.

6 Weird Things about me

Hey blame Pam not me! It was her idea. I had no choice but to comply! ;) (See her comment on previous post)

1. I have drawn the conclusion (for some time) that all these things DO in fact exist: the power of good and of evil, angels, demons, beings from other dimensions, ghosts (..whatever they are), infinite numbers of parallel universes, non duality, time travel, everything 'weird' basically.
2. If you inadvertently slam a door in my face as you enter it, ahead of me, I am never offended. Same goes for all other acts of consideration. This is because I have very low or no expectations of other people.
3. If I misplace something, my first thought will always be that someone else has taken it, even if it is almost worthless, (like a cheap pen or a ruler) I end up finding the object 98% of the time, and it never has been 'taken'.
4. I dislike attention. It feels unpleasant. I am happiest ‘behind the scenes’.
5. I take great pleasure in doing the opposite of whatever people expect or want me to do.
6. I am a Reverend, so I can legally marry and bury people. Ideally not at the same time!

Weird enough for you? Who knows..
In a typical act of defiance, I will dispense with the convention of following the directions to ‘tag’ other people as I NEVER normally comply with ANY request to pass on cyber stuff to others, but have made this ONE exception to fulfill one half of the request. Bah humbug!

Now back to those DAMMED books...
(Curse you Internet!!, you TAUNT me with your foolish time-wasting diversions...)
If anyone knows a way to develop a photographic memory, DO let me know!

I was tagged too and was confused about it all. I am reading everyone who was tagged and how they are posting. Pretty cool stuff I think.

I love the "miplacement" of things and your default method. And doing opposite in what people expect, hehee. Should I say have a bad day, then you will have a good one. Jk, I know it does not work that way.

Have a great Sunday!
