Does how we see and perceive the world impact our ability to move forward in our recovery? Our mind is a powerful tool. We can convince ourselves of a lot of things. In this episode we explore the possibilities of how our perspective might impact our present and future actions.
“To change ourselves effectively, we first had to change our perceptions.” ― Stephen R. Covey, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal
Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth. – Marcus Aurelius
Psalm 23:4-5a Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for you are with me; your rod and your staff— they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; (NRSV)
Will we focus on the enemy that is present or the provisions? We will focus on the dark valley or the reality of God’s presence with in in the valley?
Change our focus! How?
Some advice form St. Paul
