Self Help is the Best Help

Self; If you insist on being always so damn stubborn, at least listen to yourself.
I don't know if there is one point specifically when it happen, but I lost a lot of self control. I became very aware of it at the beginning of last year, and made a lot of progress with it as far as not letting myself get mindlessly violent with strong willed obsessiveness. I've been able to catch myself, and reel it in before it hits the danger zone, which is awesome. I still lack the precision and directive that i appear to have had when i look upon it in the past. I don't know if I was even aware I had it then though, which makes me wonder if I still have it now? Obviously suppressed on some level. I think it came from being lost and lethargic for so long that I legitimately mistook the obsession for a sense of drive.- and not immediately aware of this. Now that I am aware, I try to harness my obsession and aim it at what is truly meaningful to me. Since i'm a scatterbrain, I also check in with myself to see if I'm still doing what I meant to do. Good for you if you don't need to babysit yourself like I do, but good for me for not needing to outsource it :)

I was thinking really hard about how self help is so effective because I can't hide from my core. I was marinating on the word, "core". The whole concept of it, and I heard Stevie Wonder say it, and I tuned into the song



They say that heaven is 10 zillion light years away
And just the pure at heart will walk her righteous streets someday
They say that heaven is 10 zillion light years away
But if there is a God, we need Him now
"Where is your God"
That's what my friends ask me
And I say it's taken Him so long
'Cause we've got so far to come...

Tell me people
Why can't they say that hate is 10 zillion light years away
Why can't the light of good shine God's love in every soul
Why must my color black make me a lesser man
I thought this world was made for every man
He loves us all, that's what my God tells me
And I say it's taken Him so long
'Cause we've got so far to come...

But in my heart I can feel it, yeah,
Feel His spirit wow oh woo...
Feel it, yeah, feel His spirit...

I... can't say that heaven is 10 zillion light years away
But if so let all be pure at heart
Just to walk her righteous streets I pray
Let God's love shine within to save our evil souls
For those who don't believe will never see the light
"Where is my God" - He lives inside of me
And I say it's taken Him so long
'Cause we've got so far to come...
No people, "where is your God?"
Inside please let Him be
And I say it's taken Him so long
'Cause we've got so far to come...

But if you open your heart you can feel it yeah yeah
Feel His spirit, yeah
Feel it, feel His spirit, wow oh wow...
Feel it, you can feel His spirit
I opened my heart one morning and
I sho nuff could feel it yeah yeah
Feel His spirit yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You can feel it, yeah, feel His spirit
You can feel it, yeah, feel His spirit

I don't think the word, "core", was even in there! But I think that the holy spirit encouraged me to connect it with my situation divinely.

I totally realized it doesn't say "Core" anywhere in these lyrics. Lol, oh well. Somehow it still divinely applies.
