RAT BRAIN ALCOHOLIC SYNDROME
The purpose of going to a 12 Step Meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous is to find God, not quit drinking per se. The reason for going to a Primetime AA Meeting is to self-identify my own diseased thinking. Rat brainism is caused by arrested emotional development and characterized by self-authorized self-importance. The person with rat brain alcoholic syndrome is preoccupied with internal experience in much the same way that a child with autism flails and screams at his impenetrable inner world. Damaged alcoholics live in an inner fantasy world of self-constructed meaning in order to escape painful outer existence and deny consensus reality. This is one reason why drug addicts are often very creative members of the community.
Once deprived of his sedative the sober alcoholic must now experience who he really is. Some recovering patients are merely socially awkward individuals demonstrating mild Aspergers Syndrome. However some dry drunks become AA “leaders” pegging the needle at the psychopathic end of the Autism Spectrum. Most recovering people fall somewhere in-between. The goal is to heal long simmering character traits of fear, anger and resentment. The spiritually transformed addict begins to demonstrate equanimity and acceptance of consensus reality. Where in the Autism Spectrum do you score the highest: Anxiety or Equanimity?
Equanimity is a state of psychological stability and composure which is undisturbed by experience of or exposure to emotions, pain, or other phenomena that may cause others to lose the balance of their mind. The virtue and value of equanimity is extolled and advocated by a number of major religions and ancient philosophies.
How Rat Brain Alcoholic Syndrome Is Created
According to Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder Bill Wilson, alcoholics suffer from “violent emotional twists below the level of consciousness” and this is the reason that they self-anesthetize with their drug of choice. In other words rat brains are created by their caregivers. Parents with rat brain alcoholic syndrome copulate with other parents with rat brainism to produce rat brain alcoholic syndrome offspring. In a spirit of love and forgiveness imagine your parents not getting the strokes they wanted and maybe needed from their parents, i.e., your grandparents. Love is all you need.
The only known cure for rat brain alcoholic syndrome is to develop a daily spiritual practice. By meditating into Oneness with God the defense mechanism known as my personality dissolves and dissipates. If you want to recover from alcoholism you have to extinguish your tired and broken ego. So start meditating more and more each and every day. Increasing my total daily meditation time a little bit every day is how I thrive in the world today. She who meditates the longest wins!
