"A Very Good Place to Start..."

The foundation you have underneath you is supremely important.

The basis of what compels you, what fills your thoughts,
what fuels and motivates you is significant beyond compare.

So the simplest way I know to ask, is to just ask;

Do you find comfort in starting from a point of seeing
yourself as weak and helpless?
Or are you better served reminding yourself--or
learning about--your innate strength and capability?

Do you act on the desires others have for you to be
submissive and compliant?
Or do you act towards your own personal and unique be independent?

Do you succumb to fear and superstition, or do you
learn to embrace reality and tough facts?

Do you give over to a false notion of inferiority and the
desperate need to sell yourself out, or do you choose
to stand your ground and promote your humanness and
all your worthy parts?

The choices we make resonate throughout our lives.
The base we rest on informs much of our active lives,
so choose what your basis is carefully.

Haven't we beaten ourselves up enough?
Isn't fear, helplessness, suppression, perfection-seeking,
illusions, lies, fakeness, following edicts, silencing self,
and pain-avoidance what led to active addiction to start?
