Let’s start by asking first, what is alcohol? …To side track just for a moment, let’s use our kids drinking water with cordial added to it as an example. Many of us have told our kids less cordial more water. (And more than once!) This waters down the sugar intake thus leaving us to deal with a lesser grade of sugar infused craziness and definitely no red cordial please. Is this making sense!
So we then move on to alcohol, which as many of us would know, is basically fermented sugar. But did you also know that the body actually treats this type of sugar as a poison to the point where we get sick if we have too much (that would be the hangover) or even really sick if we have way too much… (and that would be the vomiting). Not to mention the fact that alcohol is usually flavoured – requiring more sugar, to which we then add a mixer, which is even more sugar. So the end result is a drink made from sugar to which we then add a HUGE amount of additional sugar – and we’re worried about the kids’ crazy behaviour! …Are we really this crazy?
So could it be possible that any amount of conversation fuelled by this amount of sugar be nothing more than dribble? … Haven’t we all been to that party as the designated driver and watch everyone around us turn into dribbling idiots?… Here’s a thought. Give your child a whole bag of lollies to eat in a short period of time and watch what happens to them – how they behave and speak to you! …Hell, give them the whole cordial bottle with a straw! …What’s the difference? …Is this picture strong enough!
So back to the beginning – ‘hiding behind my beer can’.
I too for many years spent much of my time hiding behind my beer can, bottle, rum and coke, red wine etc. You get the picture? I had way too many delusional moments fuelled by an intoxication of alcohol and or drugs while sitting around with friends speaking a lot of BS – whilst seemingly solving the world’s problems. When all I was really doing was putting s**t on everyone around me. What a nice bloke! To make it even worse, and being due to my own stupidity at that time, little did I realise that I was fast becoming one of those world problems. Or maybe I had already got there. One to tick off the list. Isn’t it easy to be the big man and tell the big story about the one that got away after a few drinks?
But luckily for me something inside of me started to say, “…Hey, what’s going on here?” My health was in serious decline (evident by the many trips to the local doctor and hospital) and I knew that something needed to change.
At this stage of my life, I was extremely fortunate to meet Serge Benhayon. So let ME be very clear – from that moment which was about 11 years ago, Serge never ever told me what to do! …Mind you I did ask, but that was always met with the fact that everything is always MY CHOICE and it’s not for him (or anyone else) to tell ME what to do. I learnt through him there is no right or wrong – just me making choices for me. Pretty simple, don’t you think?
During our talks together I got to understand what MY choices were doing to MY body – the harm that I was doing to myself. Isn’t it a bugger when there is no one else to blame but You?
By that stage my body was not in good shape. I had serious organ problems, was very overweight (damn that take away shop) and boy-o-boy did I want the pain to stop.
What do you do when nobody is to blame and everything is about your choices?
SIMPLE – make different choices! So – I did. I took it upon myself to enrol in the very next Universal Medicine healing workshop. This decision – MY decision, changed my life forever, and not just for the good, but to (figuratively speaking) finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow… “ ME ”.
