In the book Alcoholics Anonymous is a statement, “If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are halfway through.” This is typically not painstaking about any phase of any development and wonder why we are not amazed. Painstaking according to means taking or characterized by taking pain or trouble; expending or showing diligent care and effort; careful. I finish all my writing with, “Your Life is PERFECT! PAY ATTENTION!!!” It is not merely paying attention but also seeing life from a completely different perspective.

Painstaking sounds painful but actually painstaking is a steadfast awareness and a quickness to change direction if necessary. I am painstaking, which saves me painful results. I have said that I fired God as my janitor and rehired God as my scout. To utilize a scout one must slow their life down and learn to trust and communicate with said scout. Through constant prayer and meditation, I communicate with God. I ask for God’s help and take time to slow my mind down and listen for the guidance I have asked for. The more I pray and meditate the more I hear God and not my Ego.

With God managing my life I slow down my insane need to control. I don’t need to worry if I make a mistake as God is in control of the universe, I’m not. Through years of inventories I see that God has used all my actions, both positive and negative for my best interest. Being a metaphysical psychologist I find myself in people’s minds, where I most people might get lost and because I have had seven careers and sixty jobs, I casually meander through insanity finding the slivers of thought that must be resolved. If you want to know how to become painstaking in order to resolve chaos in your life 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.
