Conquering Codependency - Loving Without Leaning
by Susan Helene Kramer
Written from a spiritual point of view, 48 lessons in 65 pages that can be studied chronologically or plucked at random. Each includes a prayer for reflection or a journaling meditation, or both.
Here are 2 sample lessons:
7. Making Life-Affirming Choices
The more often we consciously make life-affirming choices in attitudes, thoughts, and actions, the more deeply we enjoy all we can be as an individual.
And as an added benefit, when we are fully our true selves, our positive example rubs off on others; we become a good example to those around us regardless of the generation gap. People learn from what they see in others so it is worth it to especially be a good example to the youngsters coming along in your life.
Here is a journaling meditation to find out about your likes and strengths.
- List 3 activities you enjoy doing by yourself.
- List 3 places you would like to visit by yourself.
- List 3 of your firmest guidelines for living.
- List 3 of your character strengths.
Now review your list and note which choices affirm your life in a positive way. Have courage. Do not give up on your ideals. They are what carry you along on your path to perfect peace and happiness.
Keep up your journaling to see how you progress in living up to yourself!
8. Developing Clarity
Developing clarity is a holistic event, involving all aspects of our being - body, mind and spirit.
The more conscious we become of the depth of a situation, the more chance we have to jump from reactionary patterns from our past, that may be negative, to positive thoughts and actions for our future.
Some ideas to think about and perhaps adopt for developing clarity
- Practice esoteric qualities, such as kindness, charity, caring.
- Adopt positive attitudes.
- Spend time in meditation and reflection.
- Do useful work or community service.
- Ingest a wholesome diet, suited to your constitution.
- Exercise and get enough sleep.
This time in facing a past reactionary situation, make your own clear decision by thinking over each option, taking an overview, then choosing to act on that which is for the common good.
"Open my vision
That I may clearly see
The most positive way
For me to be -
Steeped in clarity
The broad view to see."
