I wish that our interaction could be very powerful benefit for supporting one another. However, I feel that texting is only perhaps mildly supporting.
That said, I really appreciate you checking in. My meaning is I don’t know how helpful texting is for you.
One thing that is really help me recently is that I went on a 3-day water fast. Because you have to stay on that fast, you are dedicated to a task that demands that you exclude alcohol. The benefit of the fast is that it will reboot your immune system and clear out sick and dead cells from your body. It is also been proven to reverse arthritis and Alzheimer’s disease and hypoglycemia and diabetes. I recommend it if you can handle it.
Another thing that has been helpful for me is that I have been practicing Vipassana meditation.
It is a very simple form of Buddhist Meditation from India. But it requires that you sit. It is very wonderful because, most people don’t know it, that the original Indian Buddhism is completely compatible with Christianity or any other spiritual belief because the original Indian Buddhism does not promote the worship of any deities.
The original Buddha who was from India was only concerned with mastering the mine. You might look into it. anyway if you don’t I won’t be disappointed. Hahaha everyone has to do their own thing.
Stay strong and do whatever it takes to stay on the good path in the long run it will benefit you and you will be healthy and strong.
Thanks again for checking in. Oh, also one other concept that has been helpful for me is the idea of self care. If you check out dr. Jordan Peterson’s 12 rules for living, one of the rules that parallels with teachings from the Bible and from Buddhism is that you deserve the same love and care that you would give to someone that you love very deeply. This is not a selfish kind of love. It is been said that if one cannot love oneself it is difficult to truly love others. You might want to look into reading about this from the book 12 rules for living and also Google it about love o loving yourself. Okay nice to hear from you. Stay in touch if you can. Also I’m in Taiwan so if you use a texting application like messenger or it would be free to make phone calls for a video chat. That might be fun. Anyway let me know. One way or another. and stay away from the booze because all it will do is make you feel sick and horrible. And you might want to try to stay https://youtu.be/1T9apksOv6k
