The Celebrity Therapist

As some of you may already know if you read my blog or
facebook, I have going thru a bit of a crises in my life.  Someone I love has relapsed and I am learning
that my supporting someone who they love in a relapse is way different than
when it is someone you know and love.  It
has been full of all sorts of lessons, and the reasons as to why it has occurred
and what lessons I am learning are now slowly being revealed to me. 

First of all, I am finding a new sense of renewal in my own
recovery.  I am less focus on the
external world and becoming more in touch with my own internal world.  Through this process amazing things are
happening.  For one, I have found a
spiritual home along with the 12 steps. 
This home resonates with everything I do and believe in.    It is called Religious Science.  I like it because it exemplifies that we are
all one, really.  I do not judge anyone
for their own spiritual beliefs, because I think it is such a personal matter.  I think that is why I like this program,
because it is non-judgmental, the people are so welcoming, and it doesn’t
practice any one religion.  It feels like
it is a combination of all religions to me at least that is how I perceive
it.  Maybe that is not its intention, but
for me that is how I see it. 

In the book living without Fear by Ernest Holmes, the
founder of Religious Science, he writes about the laws of the universe.  I find that fascinating since my book is
titled “The Law of Sobriety”.  How ironic
that I would find this after the book was written.  It is as if this book has guided me to this
place.  It is as if all along, it was
there, and it took the book to lead me to its door. 

He writes in his book, “Law is the rule by which certain
actions take place; everything in the universe is governed by exact laws,
otherwise the universe would be a chaos. 
We do not see any law; we see what it does and how it acts.  Law is a part of the invisible government of
the universe.”  I just love this
quote.  Although my book was based party
by teachings from The Law of Attraction, I never quite saw the word “Law” quite
this way.  Although, my book on many
levels talks about seven action steps that combined can help a person find
purpose in their life and in their recovery. 
It all goes together so well and now “Law” has even more significance to
me.  It also reminds me that the 12 steps
could almost be looked upon as a Law of Recovery. In other words, if you go
thru the 12 steps, you will no longer have chaos in your life that was so
prevalent when you were drinking or using. 
We don’t actually see the steps in my book or the 12 steps, we see the
results.  In other words, if you follow
the steps of the program or religion that resonates with you (whether it is Buddha,
Allah, Jesus, God), there will be peace and serenity.  You don’t see peace or serenity; you just know
it is there when it arrives. Everything feels just right and to me that is law.      When things unfold as they should, I am one
with the universe, and therefore one with my God and when I am in peace,
serenity, acceptance, forgiveness, and gratitude, I know I am one with God and
that God is right there working through me and to me that is law.  There is no accident I named my book “The Law
of Sobriety.”  It just took a while for
the Law part to show up in my own life and I hope it shows up in yours, as
