Tangible Solutions

The Conditioned Mind is the cause of all that we do. This isn’t the fault of any God so why is God expected to fix it? When responsibility for our behavior is taken, it’s then that our inner urging of love takes over.

The more you understand yourself and see the Conditioned Mind at the core of any behavior malfunctions, the more tangible your life’s solution will be. You can wait for God or some other outside entity to fix you, but which would be more practical, waiting for some magical solution which may, but most likely will not happen, or taking control of your life by learning to behave in a manner that puts you in harmony with life.

More and more when I share with others about my experiences it’s the Conditioned Mind that most identified with. If freedom is something that you have an urging for, it’s the reason why you are not free that one needs to get in touch with. Our bondage is not the fault of any God so why do you look to God to fix it? When this is understood and the inner urging to change arises, you’ll have something tangible to work with. It sounds simple and the tangible solution is simple, but it’s difficult in the actual change because of the way our mind has evolved. It’s a problem solving machine, but the only issue with this is, it’s the thing creating all of the problems. Understand this and you will be well on your way to a freedom never experienced before.

If you don’t truly get to know yourself you will constantly repeat behavior that doesn’t allow for cooperation with life. This is the core message of my book. My book is not a cure all, but it is a valuable tool if you have an inner urging to change things in your life. This isn’t a promotion for my book, it’s a promotion for a tool that can help a person be relieved from the bondage of self. That’s what our inner urging is, the urging of love to be relieved of our self absorption, and until this is understood not God or anything else will be able to help remove the blocks to this urging of love. But this is not Gods fault it’s ours because we are the ones who have been conditioned to behave in a manner that doesn’t allow for us to be in harmony with life.

Do what you may, hold on to your beliefs in whatever you think you need to believe in, but understand you do what you do because of the way you have been conditioned. It’s no ones fault and until we become responsible for our own behavior, our inner urging will most likely never fully go away and our freedom will be fleeting at best. Stay in the control of your conditioning and stay in the prison to the bondage of self, and it’s unfortunate because not even God will be able to help you.

I grew up in Newark, New Jersey, one of six children. I have been married for 25 years. I own a home, and I have two children. I have been at the same job for 28 years. I am the happiest I have ever been and it is all because of the Love that has always been in my life. I attribute all that has happened to me to that Love. None of what has transpired in the last five years of my life has anything to do with any accomplishments on my part. There was always a lot of love in our home as I grew up, but for reasons unknown to me at the time I was always in trouble. I was at the top of my brother-in-law’s “Who My Sister Shouldn’t Marry” list. I drank alcoholically, gambled, abused drugs and painkillers. I bounced from relationship to relationship. Even after I stopped abusing alcohol and drugs in 1987, my so-called outer troubles stopped, but my self-centered behavior never changed. All I did was substitute one compulsion for another. Although my addiction became more respectable—taking the form of material possessions—I was still trapped, migrating restlessly from one obsession to another. I went to Twelve Step meetings, derived some benefit from them, and then fell away. My loved ones got me into de-tox and rehab programs. But once I was released, the cycle of insatiable craving started all over again. This cycle seemed to work for me . . . until it didn’t. And then my life changed — not instantly or magically, but profoundly. I share this change in It’s Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts. I discovered that I wasn’t dependent upon a substance or activity, but ruled by my ego. My need to reach outside myself for fulfillment was created by a false perception of deficiency. If this sense of lack didn’t exist in me, there wouldn’t have been a need to reach and grasp. My credentials for writing this book are simply that I live this change each day. My view of life is so different from the way it used to be. Through the practice outlined in my book, I have learned to quiet my mind enough to allow my heart to open. The quieter my mind becomes, the more Love becomes the default setting of my life. This is truly a modern-day miracle, a miracle that can happen to anyone who has the urge to change. www.mondayinyourmind.com
