As a metaphysical minister and a metaphysical psychologist I am constantly looking for cognizance. Most people lack cognizance at some level on at least a few areas of their lives. I can only know what I know and my Ego doesn’t want me to admit I am weak on any front. Cognizance, according to is awareness, realization, knowledge, notice or perception. The more one knows about themselves the more chance one has in finding themselves. Many people have spent immeasurable amounts of time in molding us into who they thought we should be with little to no consideration to what we needed, in the name of love.

The reason my life was almost destroyed by alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling, food or anything else is a lack of cognizance. Worldly things can temporarily distract me from my discomfort. Discomfort is my conscience trying to guide me toward a Godly existence. When I spend sufficient time in prayer and meditation I am spared discomfort. This freedom allows me to separate myself from my unhealthy habits until cognizance becomes a constant mental habit. Today although I may be tempted to recoil from daily negativity, I have faith that God will deliver me.

Today I am cognizant that God will not fail me. I am constantly taking personal inventory to insure I never disregard my illness. It seems that when I neglect my spiritual connection I quickly slide back into worldly habits, even when I think I have resolved them. I cannot resolve my human self; I can merely stay cognizant of them and pray for God’s help in conquering them. As stated on page 85 of the book Alcoholics Anonymous, “All I have is a daily reprieve contingent on the maintenance of my spiritual condition.”  If I am to stay cognizant of my life I must remember…

Your Life is PERFECT!

About Randolph Ek

My name is Dr. Randolph Ek, Mpsy.D. I started life as one of five children of an alcoholic father. The physical and mental abuse nearly destroyed my life. In fact my self-destructive behavior nearly landed me in prison. I eventually was guided to an alcohol/drug counselor and he directed me to a rehabilitation center. Since that time I have spent more than thirty years devoted to helping people find their ultimate potential. We can blame our negative, spiraling life on victimization but until we accept responsibility the power we need is beyond us. When we accept our part in our lives and surrender to a higher power, which I choose to call God, intervention is immediate. God allows us to realize our true power. We are all made in God’s Image and Likeness and have all the power of the universe at our disposal. We are not victims; we are volunteers and once we believe this truth our lives become limitless. God wants us all to have our heart’s desire and he will deliver whatever we continually think about good or bad. Unless I start my day off powerless and humble I cannot make the spiritual connection required to tap into God’s limitless power. God loves mankind and refuses to leave anyone behind. We can go willingly or we can be dragged to salvation. Pain is merely a symptom of spiritual separation mind, body and spirit. Realize, your individual limited resources, seek help, join others in their quest for spiritual understanding. Realize that all religions are right, yet they are also incomplete.
