    CONGRATULATIONS, Fred!

    Getting sober leads to a type of spiritual awakening, and usually is a prerequisite for a full nondual realization. So this is indeed relevant and awesome. So glad you survived and thrived to become what you are, to reach this perfect moment.

    Love,

    K

    Thank you for sharing.

    It’s been 2 and half years on this side, and convinced it was no ones doing. In the past all there was, was a feeling of “fedupness” which had been there for a long time. Which made me stop a few times only to fall back off the wagon after some time. See, being fed up of feeling sad for weeks on end after drowning my thoughts and emotions for three hours before passing out apparently wasn’t enough to keep me from hurting this mind and body. It wasn’t until I “woke up” that this feeling arose accompanied by the realization that resorting to something temporary to find relief from what was believed to be an unbearable experience was unnecessary and inefficient. A shift happened which felt like a decision to “face the music”. Again, not anyone’s doing. Ironically it was just good fortune for “someone” who thought his whole life that the chips never fell on his side.
    I obviously don’t know what the future holds but I do know that right now I rather be here and experience this moment as it is. With its challenges, shortcomings and pleasantries.

    Always love to hear from you Fred,

    Thanks again for sharing. It hit the spot.

    What a gift to have a pretend friend like Fred Davis—he doesn’t exist but I really enjoy his company!! Go figure??
