Too often, we are carrying negative perceptions, experiences and people in our minds in early recovery from drug and alcohol addiction and in our daily lives. It is “normal” to have a restless mind, but we can change that with a heightened sense of merely “what comes into view” without judgement and labeling. When we label things we establish some sort of authority or take on “the expert.” Even labeling ourselves negatively does not aid us in transforming into spiritually awakened people. Well, being an “expert” does not permit much room for change and enhancement. However, if you cultivate the practice of Beginners mind, then you are “open” to all possibilities.
