Philosophy of Recovery
Self-esteem as the core issue:
The inability to cope with life as a mature, responsible adult due to a lack of proper physical, social, educational, vocational training, and spiritual development.
Addiction and Criminal Behavior as Symptoms:
The use of mood-altering substances to relieve the sense of worthlessness, shame and guilt. Criminal activities have the same effect as drugs and alcohol. The two perpetuate each other, and both further destroy self-esteem.
Raising self-esteem as the solution:
Addiction can only be stopped when self-esteem is developed.
Self-esteem is developed through action: physical conditioning, educational and vocational achievement, social competency and spiritual practice.
Our Main Focus...
In philosophy of instinctive self, self-awareness is the experience of one's own personality or individuality. It is not to be confused with consciousness in the sense of qualia. While consciousness is awareness of one's physical body and surroundings. Instinctive self-awareness is the enlightened state-of-mind that realizes one's responsibility to self, community and environment.
Techniques and regimen one employs to develop an instinctively ethical moral value system. To understand feelings and control one's weaknesses. The ability to pursue one's sense of right despite temptations to abandon it.
Self-control, an aspect of instinctive inhibitory control, is the ability to regulate one's emotions, thoughts, and behavior in the face of temptations and impulses. As an executive function, self-control is a cognitive process that is necessary for regulating one's behavior in order to achieve specific instinctive goals.
Self-esteem is an individual's subjective evaluation of their own worth. Self-esteem encompasses beliefs about oneself as well as emotional states, such as success, confidence, pride, failure, insecurity and shame.
Sense of pride, confidence, honor, and integrity in oneself; a realization that one experiences when understanding and accomplishing their instinctive responsibilities.
Dedicate yourself to your development for one year and see what you're capable of.
