If you make somebody else wrong, you can't see what is actually going on.
What if you could let go of the right and wrong and actually look at what is getting created and how to change it?
If addiction wasn't right and it wasn't wrong, you could ask a question, such as, "What energy can I be here to change this?" You are an infinite being; you can be an energy to change things.
For more on this different perspective to addiction and what you can do about it, watch the video.

"Addiction is really about a coping skill that people have chosen, to vacate themselves because they didn't have the tools or information to handle what was going on in their lives" ~ Marilyn Bradford

Join myself and Chandana & Isha Bawa as we talk tools, tips and strategies for parents in this second wave of home schooling due to COVID19.
some gems from the video are:

- be willing to change constantly
- stop judging yourself
Judgment is not real. Turning it up in the face of judgment brings you to true choice. If, however, it's sticking you, there is somewhere in your world where you are aligning and agreeing with it. Ask, "If this wasn't true, then what would it be?"
Watch this video for how to be with the energy of judgment instead of shrinking from it or avoiding it.
