only way to kill the devil inside, is with the sword of trut

Postby Godhelpme1 » Mon Jul 30, 2018 10:40 pm

I had this interesting insight today.
Little background.
I am a compulsive liar.
I have been my entire life.
I also have addiction issues(food, drugs, maybe sex/love).

Anyway. I have been playing with different therapeutic techniques lately.
Actually I have been exploring different therapeutic techniques most of my life.
But I seem to have touched on something very profound recently.

With a combination of meditation, somatic-psychology, Jungian inner dialogue ideas and with the help of people that have been sober 30+ years(who have help hundreds of men get/stay sober), I have come to realize that to kill the inner addict, to kill the self destruction part of myself, to slay that dragon, must be with the sword of truth.

Truth with myself and others.
It is the devil inside me that, that I listen to, that lies to others because of wanting to look good.
To have people look up to me.
To not look bad.

It is that devil inside of me, that ignores all other parts of me, that would ingest food till I am sick, that part of me that would take me to the bottom pits of hell, that must die.

It is a great teacher.
It has helped me get in touch with other parts of myself.
That need to be listened to.

This is the path I must walk.
Or my life will go to complete $#%^.
I will die a painful and pitiful lonely life.
Where I will either have to constantly be using some form of distraction to run away from the glaring obvious problem.
I know this because I have been living my life like this my entire life.
And if you have this problem, probably you have to.
And worst off you may be totally aware of it.


I love you(because you are me)
Let's overcome this!

Well thats an interesting philosophy with a lot of truth to it. We, my wife and I, in an hour discussions have discovered that not only was I lying to others but to myself also, and to stop lying to others, I had to understand that and stop lying to myself. But like you said being truthful in everything however you figure out how to do it is the way to stop lying.
