It’s always the same shit. Every time you read a self help book, a piece of spiritual literature, or check up on ancient principles and philosophies. It’s all the same shit.
But why are you waiting for an inanimate object to change? There is no such thing as an original thought anymore and there hasn’t for quite some time. Everything is a derivative of something, if not a duplicate.
The impetus is on you to be disciplined enough to continue searching within the proven way of living that brings the majority joy. Keep reading the same thing over and over again every day. It’s up to YOU to change by the next time you read it. I’ve read certain books hundreds of times and I get something different out of them every time.
It’s shocking to realize how much you miss. Take that and multiply it by a million and then you will get a glimpse of how much you’re missing in life in general. You’re hit with billions of stimuli a day. How many instances do you remember from yesterday? Or an hour ago? Exactly.
On a side note, recovery is not a self help program. It’s a help others program. I think some self help programs could benefit from adopting that attitude.
