Come as You Are 😇👿

 

WOW.

Every Wednesday I am sharing some Wisdom with you; my teachers; my influences and who I am inspired by. I hope you enjoy!

Rumi.

A small section of the poem Come as You Are’ from the book ‘The Forbidden Rumi’. I find this an intriguing and thought provoking explanation of oneness (my response is below the poem), the letting go of ego and the need to be stimulated from our outside world. Let me know what you think…

“If you surrender yourself to your essence,
the whole world surrenders to you.
Every day spent in separation feels as long as a year.
But when you come out of separation,
where does the day go?
And what becomes of the night?

If you drink,
go swaying to the land of secrets
without your feet.
If you’re already drunk, then come as you are.
Where has your mind gone?
And where is the need to be something
you are not?”

Personally when I look back at my drunken and drugged days I can see that I was searching for the high I now achieve in meditation:
Mind gone
Day gone
Separation gone
I spiritually float without my feet on the ground into another world
That world used to be a drunken / drugged anaesthetic of which I had no recollection of once sober
However
Now
The state remains once out of the slumber
All day
Forever more
So
Perhaps
The drugs and drink were teachers?
Showing me the state I so longed for
And now reside in
So
I have no regrets, only fondness now
For the path of addiction
For it lead me directly to myself….

Member Quote.

Read something that has been said by one of the Quantum Sobriety Online Programme members over on the very lively private forum:

I thought the moment would never come, but woke up today ready to fully commit to sobriety and self care. Have met *** and I’m meeting her for dinner tonight. Openly said that I wasn’t drinking and her reply was that she hasn’t had alcohol for 12 years because she couldn’t control it. Then met a guy on Tinder (I know, I know 😂)
who….does not drink!
Could it be the start of meeting my tribe? I really hope so 
Connection is the opposite of addiction and organisation is the opposite of chaos. Feel so utterly relieved to have made this shift. Had a counselling session with Anni yesterday and it’s obviously helped. So glad I reached out for help last week. Thanks to you all for the love and helping me get back on track.
Lots of love
