31-07: For the Knowing…

For the Knowing…

You’re here because you know something.  What you know you can’t explain.  But you feel it.  You’ve felt it your entire life….that there’s something wrong with the world.  You don’t know what it is but it’s there, like a splinter in your mind driving you mad.  It is this feeling that has brought you to me.  Do you know what I’m talking about? ~Morpheus in "The Matrix"~
In every individual, at one time or another, a deep sense of yearning is felt…a void that cannot seem to be filled by worldly pursuits.  Whether one tries to fill it with intellectual achievements, leadership roles, business success, money, drugs, alcohol, or any other number of things, ultimately, nothing can satisfy.   To deny it is simply self delusion.
Thought for the day
It is a sense that there must be something more…something beyond this realm, and essentially supernatural in scope.  The only question is, if and when you will acknowledge that drawing of the Spirit…seeking to understand and determine the truth contained therein, that there must be something else.  That quest itself is what will fill that void deep within your heart once and for all.    God is waiting for you…what are you waiting for?   
Why not begin that journey right now, today?  Stop wasting precious time.  Go to a meeting and ask someone (spiritually advanced) to sponsor you and lead you thru the steps.  It is in that process of seeking the truth about yourself that you will encounter the god of your own understanding.

So I say to you, Ask and keep on asking and it shall be given you; seek and keep on seeking and you shall find; knock and keep on knocking and the door shall be opened to you.  For everyone who asks and keeps on asking receives; and he who seeks and keeps on seeking finds; and to him who knocks and keeps on knocking, the door shall be opened. ~Jesus / Luke 11:9-10 (Amp)~

I am the Door; anyone who enters in through Me will be saved (will live).  He will come in and he will go out [freely], and will find pasture.  The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy.  I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows). ~Jesus / John 10:9-10 (Amp)~

But when the Father sends the Advocate as my representative—that is, the Holy Spirit—he will teach you everything and will remind you of everything I have told you.  “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart.  And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid…"
~Jesus / John 14:26-27 (NLT)~


About SLAA Tilburg

Wat is seks- en liefdeverslaving? Wij in S.L.A.A. geloven dat seks- en liefdeverslaving een voortschrijdende ziekte is, die niet kan worden genezen maar die, zoals veel ziekten, wel tot staan kan worden gebracht. Zij kan verschillende vormen aannemen – inclusief (maar niet beperkt tot) een dwangmatige behoefte aan seks, extreme afhankelijkheid van één persoon (of meerdere personen), en/of een voortdurend in beslag genomen worden door romantiek, affaires of fantasieën. Er is sprake van een obsessief-dwangmatig patroon, seksueel of emotioneel (of beide), waarin relaties of seksuele activiteiten in toenemende mate destructief geworden zijn voor de loopbaan, het gezinsleven en het gevoel van zelfrespect. Als seks- en liefdeverslaving wordt veronachtzaamd, wordt zij altijd erger. Wanneer wij echter een eenvoudig programma volgen dat voor een reeks van mannen en vrouwen met dezelfde ziekte succesvol is gebleken, kunnen wij herstellen. In S.L.A.A. leren wij de realiteit te accepteren dat wij deze verslaving hebben
